Lovefeast 2014 Facts

20101205lovefeast1250USA Today ran a piece a few days ago called “4 Beloved Campus Christmas Traditions,” and in a surprise to no one here on campus, our Lovefeast was listed in the #1 spot.   If you have attended one (in person or via the Internet), or if your students have told you about their experience attending, you have a sense of just how special this service has been to Wake Foresters.

This year, some of my very creative colleagues decided to honor the 50th anniversary of the Lovefeast in a tangible way – by offering Lovefeast At Home kits for purchase.  The kit included Moravian coffee and Lovefeast bun mix, beeswax candles, anad a Lovefeast program.  The hope was that we might have enough people interested to sell 100.  Turns out, demand was so high that 300 were sold, which was the maximum number my colleagues could realistically produce.

Now that the Lovefeast is over, my colleagues did some analyzing of the Lovefeast kits and web viewing traffic, and the results are pretty interesting.  Read on to see just who and where people were sharing the Lovefeast with those of us on campus.

Finals Continue

Last night was the “Late Night Breakfast” – which is held in the Pit from 10pm-midnight.  Faculty and staff work alongside our ARAMARK/Campus Dining staff to serve breakfast to students.  We know our students are studying for finals and need a break – maybe some carbs and protein too! – to power them through as they burn the midnight oil.

LNB is always a fun affair.  There’s great music – thank you, Wake Radio! you were playing some great tunes – and it is fun to see students’ reactions to administrators they may know who are serving food or helping take trays to tables, etc.  The Demon Deacon was there as well, high fiving students, sitting at tables and looking at books with them, even dancing.

Speaking of dancing, there were a few moments of pure, unadulterated awesomeness lastnight.  Occasionally one or more students would break into a spontaneous dance – tons of energy and verve, great to see.  At one point, there were a couple of students and a couple of staff doing a line dance together.  The coup de grace for me was a young man in a white t-shirt and red shorts.  He was cutting a rug like nobody’s business.  Really amazing.  I credit both his dancing skills and his confidence.  He was rocking it and it was a joy to see.

My job lastnight was to click a counter as students came in the door.  Normally when they come in, they have to show their ID and swipe it to use a meal from their meal plan – but last night’s feast was totally gratis, paid for by Campus Life.  When students would try to show me their card, I got to tell them ‘this one’s on us, compliments of Campus Life.  Eat, drink, and be merry!’ and you would think I had just handed them a $50.  Free food for tired students facing finals is always a win.  All told, we served 513 students between 10 pm and midnight.

In other campus news, today from 12-2 there was an opportunity for students to come together on the Quad to ‘Claim Our Space.’  The Claim Our Space flyer gives the background about this student-initiated project.  Students could tie a red ribbon around the trunk of one of the Quad trees, and/or they could write a message on a notecard and tie that up there.  My time there was just before the start of the event so I didn’t get to see it in full swing.  Hopefully there will be some pictures.

A final word on finals.  Think back and remember how you felt during your own finals week.  Students are stressed out, tired, and it’s hard to feel cheerful with exams looming.  However, at the Daily Deac, we’re trying to find some light moments.  A quick search on finals week memes brought up some funnies.  Your students might not be ready to laugh at these, but maybe you are..?

Last Week of Classes

And you can sort of smell it in the air.  Our students know they have much to do before break, and there is a wide range of end-of-classes/pre-finals faces.  For some they look tired, for others they have a determined look about them, still others carry a nonchalant look like ‘I’ve got this!’

I’m not sure if it’s because of the weather (still cold and gray and misty today) or if people are starting to hunker down in work mode and get serious, but I saw a lot more sweats and casual clothing on our students today than one normally sees.

12 2 14 3 12 2 14 4 12 2 14The school is cognizant of the pre-finals stresses, and happily there was a cart advertising free hot chocolate on the Quad.  I took some pictures and then later as I was on my way, I overheard some students in the distance see the cart and say something akin to ‘THIS is why I chose this school – I knew it would be hard, but they also do things like this for us.”

More of that sort of help will be coming with Wake the Library, which will begin this Friday the 5th.  Students can spend time in the ZSR studying and working, but also having some opportunities for free food, relaxation stations, and some moments of fun and frivolity to lighten the mood.

Lastnight was Lighting of the Quad, and if you are not following Wake Forest University on Facebook, you should – they have some great pictures from lastnight, including some aerials.  You can also friend on Facebook Stu DentUnion and see some of their coverage, including a fun video of all the students with their lit candles.  The Lighting had reflections and songs, the lighting of the Christmas tree and menorah, as well as the trees in the Quad.  A good time was had by all.

20091206lovefeast2793Coming up on Sunday night at 8 pm is the 50th annual Lovefeast in Wait Chapel.  For many students, this is a not-to-be-missed event.  For all of our Deac families, you can join in and watch via simulcast on Sunday night.  You’ll go to the main WFU web page (www.wfu.edu) and you’ll see a link on how to join the livestream.   The Lovefeast truly is one of the most beautiful communal moments at Wake Forest.  If you want to read some coverage about what it is like, here is a link to last year’s Daily Deac about it.

Here’s a final few of shots of the campus, taken at different times (early morning and midday).  The weather has not improved one bit.

It Doesn’t Smell Like Snow

It doesn’t smell like snow – and those of you in snow-prone areas know there is a distinct smell in the air when snow is coming – but boy it sure looks like it could snow at any minute.  Yesterday was sunny and nearly 70, today is 40 but feels like 35 with wind chill and is gray and dreary.  There’s no nice way to say it – the weather is just gross today.  Hopefully the intermittent mist will end in time for the Lighting of the Quad tonight.

artisan fairSpeaking of the holidays, if your Deacs are looking for some easy holiday gift-buying for family members, we are holding our annual Artisan’s Fair on Friday in room 401 of the Benson Center.  Your students may not have any idea that an administrator or faculty member they know is also an accomplished artist, baker, jewelry maker, or seamstress (seamster for men?) – but on Friday they can browse the various offerings.  It’s always a great spread for gifts – or even if they just want to buy themselves a treat.

A couple of other activities on campus that bear mentioning.  Tomorrow (Weds.) at 11 am the Divinity School is hosting Ferguson: A Discussion on Race, Justice, and Hope for the Future.  The Women’s Center will host The Water Cooler at 4:30, an opportunity for students, faculty, and staff to gather; this coffee and conversation hour happens weekly.  There is an Orchestra concert tomorrow night at 7:30 as well.

One final note about campus doings tomorrow.  At 4 pm, the campus is invited to join Gender Equality Allies for a photo project in solidarity with survivors of sexual assault on college campuses.  The Daily Deac covered a lot of the ‘Together Tuesdays’ pictures earlier in the semester, and these sort of group photos/awareness raising can be powerful moments.  I hope your students will join me there.  There is also an important message on our News page about sexual assault that I hope you will read.

Post-Holiday Readers’ Choice Recipes

Your Deacs are back and today they get to enjoy a wonderfully warm and sunny day.  It’s nearly 70, sunny, and gorgeous.  And tomorrow it’s supposed to be in the low 40s.  That’s way too much weather zigging and zagging for my taste.

Speaking of taste and the Thanksgiving holiday, I asked our readers last week to share some of their go-to meals.  I got a few very promising looking recipes – so if you are looking for a new salad, entree, or dessert, we have a few great examples at the end of this post.  Many thanks to those who submitted!

Tomorrow night is the Lighting of the Quad.  It will be on the Quad from 7-8 pm, and is described on the Events calendar as follows:  “Lighting of the Quad is time of holiday cheer and good tidings when the Wake Forest family can come together and celebrate the spirit and meaning of community.  At Lighting of the Quad, students, faculty and staff will enjoy treats, an a capella concert, student and guest speakers and the lighting of the university tree, menorah and individual candles held by all in attendance.”

Your students will want to go to this – it’s a nice way to share in the communal joy of the upcoming holiday season and be present with friends and classmates for good cheer.

Here’s the recipes from our Daily Deac reader-chefs.  Bon appetit!

——————————————

Edamame Three-Bean Salad

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt

1/2  teaspoon pepper

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1/2  cup frozen corn (rinsed under cold water to thaw)

1 cup shelled soy beans (edamame)

1 (15-16 ounce) can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed

1 (15-16 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed

2 scallions, cut in ½ inch slices

1/2 red pepper, diced

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro, basil or a combination

In a small bowl, whisk together the red wine vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper. Slowly whisk in the olive oil; set aside.  Combine the edamame beans, kidney beans, garbanzo beans, scallions, bell pepper, cilantro and basil. Gently toss in the dressing.  Refrigerate for a few hours before serving. 

——————————————

Chopped Salad

1 can garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained and rinsed

1 cucumber, seeded and diced, medium

2 large tomatoes, medium diced

2/3 lb fresh mozzarella, medium diced

8-10 olives, roughly chopped

Italian salad dressing to taste

*all quantities are flexible, depending on your family’s tastes. We usually have Campari tomatoes in the winter, but grape tomatoes are also easy. We try for even proportions of cheese and cucumber and tomato and garbanzo, with olives as seasoning with the salad dressing. Simply chop, mix everything, toss with dressing and enjoy. It holds up well on a buffet table, and if there are leftovers, it’s a great sandwich filling in pita bread.

——————————————

Taco Soup

2 lbs ground beef

1 onion, chopped

Brown these, together in large pot, and drain. Return to pot.

 

Add the following, without draining:

1 can corn

1 can hominy (optional)

1 can chopped tomatoes

1 can black beans

2 cans Rotel tomatoes

2 pkgs Ranch dressing mix

2 pkgs taco seasoning

Simmer 30 minutes and serve over tortilla chips with grated cheddar cheese on top.  Can add a dollop of sour cream and/or slice of avocado, if desired.  Always better the 2nd day.

——————————————

Bow Tie Pasta with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

2 tbsp olive oil

1 pound Italian sausage ( use all hot or half sweet, half hot)

1/2  tsp dried red pepper flakes   (can double for more spiciness)

1/2 cup diced onions

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 28 oz can Italian plum tomatoes, drained, coarsely chopped

1 1/2 cup whipping cream

1/2  tsp salt

12 oz. bow tie pasta

Heat oil in heavy large skillet over medium heat.  After taking casings off  sausage, add sausage and peeper flakes to skillet. Cook sausage until no longer pink. Add onions and garlic and cook until tender. Add tomatoes, cream and salt.  Simmer until mixture thickens, about 4 minutes.

Cook pasta until tender but still firm to bite. Drain

Bring sauce to simmer. Add cooked pasta and cook until heated through and sauce thickens…about 2 minutes. Serve with parsley and Parmesan cheese.

Topping:

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup firm butter

1/2 cup granulated brown sugar

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Put ready-made pie crust into 9-inch pie plate. Double the pie crust on the edges so it doesn’t burn, and press down on with a fork.  Mix all ingredients together, except the apples. Then mix the apples and put in the pie plate.

Mix together topping ingredients until crumbly and place on top of pie. If you have one of those pie crust protectors, use that so crust doesn’t burn. If not, try covering the crust (only) with aluminum foil.

Bake 30-40 minutes. During last 10 minutes of baking, remove pie crust protector or foil and cover entire pie with foil.  Best served warm. Bonus: add whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!  SERVING SIZE- 8 to 10 people

Deac Family Recipes

Hopefully each of our Daily Deac readers enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday, with family, much to be grateful for, and of course plenty of good food.

recipe bowlSince it’s a long holiday weekend and the office is closed – and food is on everyone’s minds – I thought it might be fun to see if we can gather some Deac Family recipes.  So today is an invitation for you to submit your favorite recipe.  Doesn’t even need to be a Thanksgiving recipe – it could be any of your favorites.   Because we all have busy lives, it may work best if you choose something that doesn’t have 1,000 rare ingredients or take hours to prep – but something that is a go-to winner for your family.

You can send your recipes in via email at parents@nullwfu.edu (or hit ‘reply’ if you are a subscriber to the Daily Deac and you get it via email).

If we get a bunch of Deac families responding, I will put the recipes together and publish them as a future Daily Deac.

Enjoy your leftovers!

Thankful

happy-thanksgivingOn behalf of the Parent Programs office, we wish your family a safe, healthy, and happy Thanksgiving.

We wish you:

A table full of family, friends, and loved ones

Bellies that are full and hearts that are light

Good health and a positive spirit

A feeling of closeness with people you can’t be with today – may they feel your love from afar

Happy memories and excitement for the future

Peace, joy, love, and compassion

And as a former colleague of mine used to say “I don’t have to be rich, but please let me always have $1 more than I need”

Wishing your family all the blessings of Thanksgiving.  We are so very grateful that you have become a part of our Wake Forest family!

Preparations

11 21 14 lightpoleYesterday I was up on the Quad and in the Benson Center and was witness to preparations for the holidays.  On the Quad, pine garlands were being placed on the arches and light poles.  A Christmas tree was being set up in front of Reynolda Hall.  Wreaths had been hung on the doors to the Deacon Shop and Quad-facing doors.

11 21 14 reynolda tree 11 21 14 archDitto for the Benson Center.  A large Christmas tree was being set up in the Rotunda, and very soon I suspect pine garlands will be on the railings at the stairs.  In years past, they have also put pointsettias in the Rotunda and by the stairs.  Wreaths adorned the Benson front doors as well.

11 21 14 benson tree 11 21 14 benson doorsWhile it might seem a bit early for holiday decorations to go up on campus, if you stop and think about it, students are only here for 3+ weeks before finals end and it will be Winter Break.  It’s good to have some festivity and cheerfulness up now, while they can still enjoy it.  It also might help lighten the mood as finals approach to see some decorations.

These decorations – and the lights that accompany them at night – will be on full view for the Lighting of the Quad on the evening of December 2nd.  Normally we also have a menorah on campus for Hanukkah, but the dates of Hanukkah fall after students leave for Winter Break, so I am assuming our students unfortunately won’t get to see that.

11 21 14 quad signsThe Quad had some additional decorations too.  There are white signs along half of the Quad telling the stories of student entrepreneurs.  They were placed there by the Center for Innovation, Creativity, and Entrepreneurship.  The stories are pretty cool – hope your students will stop and read some of them.

Three final notes for your Black and Gold Friday (I hope you’re wearing our school colors wherever you are!)

– My intrepid colleagues in social media have posted a beautiful video on the Wake Forest University Facebook page.  It’s a slideshow of fall on campus, accompanied by “Mr. Wake Forest,” our much-beloved Provost Emeritus and Professor Emeritus of English, Ed Wilson (’43).  This is a beautiful way to see and hear the best of WFU.

11 21 14 clouds- I snapped this picture this morning of the clouds over Wait Chapel.  The sky was full of thin stripes of clouds and it looked really magical.

– Remember to call your students :)

Take care and have a great weekend, Deac families!

Gratitude Day – Wednesday 11/19

It is freezing, freezing, cold today, Deac families.  High of a frigid 36.  And while I know many of you are from colder climes than ours, already dealing with snow and superfrigid temperatures, let me go on record and say I much prefer the warmth.  There are a couple of side benefits to the weather I suppose: students can finally trot out their warmest winter coats, boots, and gloves – and for our students who live in places where it never gets cold, this is sort of fun for them.

Even though it’s hard for me to be this cold and feel grateful, today’s Daily Deac is about gratitude.  Wake Forest is having a Gratitude Day tomorrow (Wednesday, November 19th).  In this season of thankgiving and reflecting on our many blessings, this seems like a great idea.

There are a couple of ways your students can participate:

give thanksThey can Tweet @WFUOPCD with #GiveThanks and share what they are thankful for this holiday season.  They have a chance to win a Chipotle gift card.

Students can also join the campus for Gratitude Day and share what makes them #GiveThanks from 11am-1 pm in front of the Pit.

Deac families, we welcome you to share what you are grateful for as well.  You can email parents@nullwfu.edu and we will post any of your comments (anonymously if you like, or you can give us your first initial and Parent year – P’15 = senior parents, P’16 = juniors, etc.)  I’d love to complile a Gratitude List from our Deac families.

Rainy, Wet, and Cold

This is not the trifecta that we were hoping for as we start the week.  It is cold, dreary, and rainy.  You can see it on the Quad Cam.

Tomorrow is going to be worse – highs only in the mid-30s, and lows in the upper teens.

My prediction is that there is going to be very little foot traffic today.  Students will stay hunkered down in their dorms, or the library, or wherever they are finding warm and comfortable places to be.

Since I also am not keen to venture out into the rain to survey the campus, today I’ll bring to you information from Volunteer Service Corps about upcoming service opportunities, as well as the Lighting of the Quad.  If your Deacs get a kick out of volunteering and making someone else’s day/week a little brighter, there are many good options for engagement.

Lighting of the Quad

On December 2nd is Lighting of the Quad and this year we will be conducting a service project with the Emergency Chaplin’s Fund. This fund was created to support the Wake Forest faculty and staff when they are in tough financial times. We will be asking students to bring ‘stocking stuffers’ for the children of the staff or faculty that benefit from the fund to Lighting of the Quad. We are looking for small toys, hats, scarves, or gloves. We will also be accepting monetary donations for the Fund.
