Today is a great day on campus – Project Pumpkin! From 3-6 p.m., Wake Forest students will host over 1,000 local Winston-Salem children, as well as children of faculty and staff, for an afternoon of games, trick or treating, clowns and face painters, live music, and more.
This is a signature event on campus and even if your student hasn’t volunteered as a helper for the event, encourage him/her to go to the Quad this afternoon and see all the joy of the children.
Though we had lots of rain and wind on campus yesterday, the forecast shows only a 10% chance of rain, so it promises to be a great afternoon. Thanks to the Volunteer Service Corps and all the students who have worked on Project Pumpkin. Go Deacs!
In other spooky news, Student Union invites students to the following events this weekend:
“Dare to journey through the dark, winding path to Reynolda Village, and you’ll find yourself at Student Union’s first ever LIVE Haunted House in the Reynolda Meadows Friday from 8-11pm. Come out and enjoy a scary time with friends!
What would you expect from a Southern school on Halloween? A Deadutante Ball of course! Come to the Reynolda Meadows Party Tent this Saturday night for a night full of Halloween shenanigans from 8-11pm. DJ, dancing, and food all for FREE! Sport your best Halloween costume for a chance to win a fantastic PRIZE!! Can’t wait to see you there!”
