Dear  Wake Forest University Parents,

Welcome to Wake Forest University. You are a vital part of your student’s experience here at Wake Forest. I am encouraging you to attend one of the Parent Alcohol Orientation Sessions on Friday, August 24, 2012 at 10:00 am, 11:30 am, 2:00 pm, 3:30 pm, or 5:00 pm in Pugh Auditorium of the Benson University Center.

Please come hear stories and tips from Wake Forest University Professionals about ways to engage with your student regarding expectations, attitudes, and beliefs about collegiate alcohol use. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to send me an email at

We are excited your student has chosen to attend Wake Forest, and we wish you the best during their transition to university life. Thank you for your time.

If Your Student Has a Problem

One of the most important ways parents and families can help their students in college is by encouraging them to solve their own problems. Please bookmark or print out this Stop, Drop, and Roll flyer so you have it when your student contacts you with a problem.  Also, the flyer lists contact information for urgent and serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
