Set Your Calendars

Summer Session 2 has begun, and yesterday I saw a ton of people moving in (on a very hot and sunny day, I might add).  It is nice to see some students back on campus.  And that reminds me that there is an action item for parents and families coming up very soon.

Registration for Family Weekend 2014 is going live at 10 am on Tuesday, July 15th!  So mark your calendars now and be ready to go next Tuesday when registration opens.  The website for Family Weekend is http://familyweekend.su.wfu.edu/.

Family Weekend will be held October 24-26, and Student Union has prepared a whole host of events and activities for you to enjoy with your Deacs.  Be aware, though, that some events will sell out (and possibly sell out quickly), so if you plan to attend, you’d be wise to register early.

You can see the full schedule of events online, as well as information about the various football and tailgate options, and be sure to read their FAQ page.

And for those of you with incoming first-year students, I am sure upcoming class registration might be on their minds.  Here are a few thoughts:

– If your students have questions or need help, now is the time to ask!  There will be Google Chat sessions available beginning Sunday (see bottom of the Advising page), and the Office of Academic Advising has a great first-year student FAQ

– Interested in potential business, law, and/or allied health (aka med school, etc.)?  Be aware of pre-professional advising resources.

– All students need to be aware of the Curriculum Requirements (Basic and Divisional Requirements)

– There is a Registration Guide online to help students navigate the system
