Happy New Year, Deac families! What’s that, you say? New Year’s in July? That’s right, we count today as the New Year because it is the first official day of the 2015-16 academic year (which coincides with the new fiscal year for our budget). So today is a holiday in our office.
Couple of quick hits for today:
– For parents and families in the Class of 2019, the Orientation brochure PDF went live today. To see the Orientation schedule, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the link to the PDF version. Also, are you keeping up with items on the Parents’ section of the Newstudents.wfu.edu website? We have an Announcements page for you and a lot more!
– We are working on a virtual New Student reception for families in the Class of 2019 who cannot attend one (either none in their area or they did not wish to attend). While it won’t give you the opportunity to meet other parents and students, it will give you the chance to hear some valuable advice by parents for parents. Look for that [hopefully] next week.
– The University will be closed this Friday, July 3rd for the Independence Day holiday.
That’s all the news that’s fit to print for today. Take care, Deac families!
