ZSRx Parents and Families: Deacon Development 101

Parents and families are invited to join us for a four-week, free online course for parents and families of Wake Forest students. This course seeks to bring participants to a fuller understanding of how this generation experiences their college years. The course will explore how parents can help their students develop crucial skills like resilience and self-advocacy, and how students might develop greater awareness of their own identities. Interact with student development experts on campus and hear from student support representatives as you learn about how students can reach their potential and find their niche on campus. Add your email now to be alerted about when registration will begin in late September.

If Your Student Has a Problem

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.
