Due to significant rainfall, a pine tree fell today onto the roof of Student Apartments Building B on Allen Easley Drive. No one was injured in the incident.
Tree branches damaged a small section of the building’s roof and one bedroom’s ceiling. Residence Life and Housing staff are moving the two residents of the affected room to another room. At this time, it appears no other rooms were impacted.
Facilities and Campus Services staff are inspecting the area around the building as a safety precaution. Inspections will determine if damage is more extensive than it appears.
The building remains open for students.
Work is expected to be performed on power lines near the building. Potentially, power will be out at that building and, perhaps, at others nearby when work is underway. The University will announce by email any power outage.

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.
Select information and presentations from Orientation 2016 are available online.
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.
