Giving back

Wright State students, faculty and staff learned about opportunities to give back to the community at the We Serve U Volunteer Fair on Sept. 19 in the Student Union Atrium.

The eighth annual fair hosted 25 nonprofit organizations for which Wright State community members can volunteer.

Stop the Bleed

On Sept. 18, the Wright State College of Nursing and Health hosted an hourlong training session for students, faculty and staff to save lives.

Participants were trained to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives. They learned the ABC’s of bleeding: alerting 911, finding the blood source and applying a compress.

“I had heard about packing wounds but know I can do that,” said Branden Kappes, a freshman pre-nursing major.

Raider Ninja Warrior

On Sept. 14, 24 Wright State students competed in the first 2019 Raider Ninja Warrior, a fun skills challenge inspired by the NBC show “American Ninja Warrior.”

Teams of four students competed in seven timed challenges that tested each participant’s mental and physical abilities. The challenges included hitting targets with a water balloon slingshot, basketball trick shots, slackline race, catching marshmallows with your mouth and balancing a ball on a stick while running.

“I love the crazy games,” said Riley Ulmer, a senior accountancy major.
