For the first time in 43 years, Rockafield House will serve Wright State in a different capacity.
Built in 1969 for the university’s first president, Brage Golding, and subsequently occupied by Wright State’s first six presidents and their families, Rockafield House is now Rockafield Alumni Center, the new home for the Wright State University Alumni Association and alumni returning to campus.
Has it been a while since your last time on campus? Have you been thinking lately that it would be fun to catch up with your college friends and relive the fun you had as students?
Homecoming 2012, planned for Friday through Sunday, Oct. 12–14 on campus, will be an opportunity to reconnect with people you bonded with during one of the most special times of your life. We've planned a number of enjoyable activities during the weekend that will help you revisit old memories and make new ones. You can see how much Wright State has changed since you were a student.
For over four decades the Wright State University Alumni Association has been committed to supporting student scholarships. In today’s economy, as state and federal funding continue to decrease, private dollars for scholarships are needed now more than ever before. It’s estimated that at least two-thirds of college students now graduate with loans—even the average debt for Wright State graduates is nearly $27,000. Approximately 83 percent of our Wright State graduates have taken at least one loan during their college careers.
