While many people think of March Madness in basketball terms, for admissions offices around the country, March Madness could just as easily be the final push to determine the incoming freshman class and to get the decision letters out the door.
Some of you may already have discovered the From the Forest admissions blog; I am ashamed to say I only found out about it this week. The admissions team has been blogging about the final days of mailing letters, and today’s blog post has a letter from Martha Allman, dean of admissions, about the slate of applications they received and the difficult decisions they had to make. It’s a good read.
The view from the forest (at least from where I sit) is that today began as a foggy day. It’s cleared up to a degree, but is not the kind of sunny and beautiful spring day we had this time last week. We appear to be due for some rain tomorrow and it will be cooler, but thankfully back into the 70s next week.
We’ve received a couple of questions in the Parent Programs office about families coming to visit for Easter weekend, and where are good places to eat? As a reminder, the best first line of defense for questions is to try our Parents’ Page Q&A – we cover a lot of commonly asked questions there. Towards the end of the section on Dining we have some links about restaurants parents and alumni have recommended.
The Office of Family Engagement provides information and support to Wake Forest parents, guardians, grandparents, and family members. The office maintains the Family Engagement Page of the Wake Forest website, which is the primary vehicle of communication with families, as well as our Facebook and Twitter presence.
