When I was a little girl, I remember going to my dad’s office for take your son or daughter to work day. We always did all sorts of things and I remember how awesome it was to see where my dad worked and what he did every day. Well, Wright State is participating in Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, April 22. This national program will allow kids ages 8-18 visit the workplace and get to see what a day in the life of their parent or close family friend is like. What is cool about bringing a child to a place like Wright State is that they get to see what an extraordinary place a college is; especially one like Wright State. Wright State has so much diversity and that was one of the many factors that drew me to this school. There is every type of student lingering through the buildings and sidewalks of the campus. It’s a wonderful opportunity for kids and teens see such diversity because many of us grow up in neighborhoods that match our image. For the high school kids, this is an awesome opportunity for them to check out Wright State and consider it for college! The more Raiders the better!
On the topic of diversity, Wright State will be welcoming John Corvino, Ph.D April 20, 2010 at 7:00 in the Apollo Room. Dr. Corvino will be speaking about the myths of homosexuality and morality that have been around since the 1990s, a presentation named “What’s Morally Wrong With Homosexuality?” With homosexuality being such a controversial issue for most, this would be a neat opportunity for anyone and everyone to listen in on. Chances are, you’ll learn something you never knew before, and who knows, maybe it could change your entire opinion. We each like to be heard when it comes to our personal opinions and I believe that what makes us better at standing up for what we personally believe in, is learning about the opposing side. The tickets are free and open to the public.
Lastly, as a follow up on last week’s sports blog, the Wright State men’s baseball team will be battling it out against the UD Flyers Wednesday April 21 at 6:30 p.m. The game is at home at the Nischwitz Stadium behind the Nutter Center. But, what makes this game special is that it is the WSU Annual Military Appreciation Game. All Military ID holders get in free to the game as well as one guest, for any additional guests it is $2. ROTC units from both universities will be there to honor the men and women of the military and a recently deployed OHANG solider will have the honor of delivering the first pitch. There will be baseball bingo, raffle giveaways, concession specials and prizes during the game! So come out, support the Raiders and our military!
