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.
Wake Forest Communications and External Relations
To contact the Office of Family Engagement, please visit our contact page.
One of the best ways parents/families can help their students is to let them solve their own problems. Use the Stop, Drop, and Roll method when your student contacts you with a problem. The flyer also lists contact information for serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
Select slide shows from Orientation sessions 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.
