Fall 2022 Major Mixer w/ the VMC
On September 1st we co-hosted the Fall Semester 2022 kick-off with the Wright State Veteran and Military Center (VMC) at the Wandering Griffin in Beavercreek across from campus. This was the third iteration of this recurring student-focused event series which serves as a way to connect students and alumni at the beginning of each fall and spring semester. The Major Mixer is more than a social event, it also serves as a way for students to talk to local professionals and understand how their field of study may be applied in industry. In some cases, students may identify potential future employment or internship opportunities.
This semester's event was able to draw a solid crowd during 2 hours of dinner and drinks. We were joined by students, ROTC cadets, veterans, families, alumni, Wright State faculty, and supporters. As with each semester kick-off, fresh pizza was continually restocked courtesy of the VMC and drinks were flowing courtesy of VMAS. We were able to reconnect with some of our repeat visitors and also welcomed some new attendees. As usual with our events, leftovers went back to the VMC to support the student community and ensure no food was wasted. If this event sounds like something you may be interested in, keep an eye on our events page as the Major Mixer will happen every January and September.
