Wakesgiving for Students Staying on Campus During Thanksgiving Break

The Office of Residence Life and Housing has shared the following information about programming available for students staying on campus during Thanksgiving break.


Residence Life and Housing is sponsoring, “Wakesgiving” next Wednesday, November 21st from noon-2pm in Bostwick Hall for all residents who will be staying on campus over Thanksgiving break. This will be a relaxing way to unwind a bit and connect with other students who are also on campus. We will have Thanksgiving-themed crafts from your elementary school glory days, games, and food. We will also have a group that meets to go on a turkey trot jog around campus/Reynolda trail   If you’re interested in joining us, please RSVP to your GHD by Monday, November 19th so that we can order lunch for you! If you have any questions, please contact Ashley Jones (jonesap@nullwfu.edu)


And as a reminder, there is information online about dining hours and pre-purchasing meals during the break, as well as shuttle service.

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.
