WFU Police Investigating Numerous Car Break-ins

The University Police Department is investigating an extraordinary number of car break-ins on campus this month.

Since April 3, 16 car break-ins have been reported at locations across campus.  Locations include lots H, J, Q and R2, as well as along Jasper Memory Lane and Allen Easley Drive.  Lots H and J and Jasper Memory Lane are located at the southern end of campus, while lots Q and R2 and Allen Easley Drive are at the opposite end of campus.

Thieves have rummaged through the vehicles, opening compartments and apparently looking for such items as cash and purses.

Some vehicles had been left unlocked by drivers, others were locked.  Police recommend that cars always be locked.

Officers are regularly patrolling lots and roads, but ask for the campus community’s assistance if suspicious behavior is seen in such areas. The University Police Department recommends calling 336-758-5911 to provide information that may assist in the investigation, including observing suspicious behavior. Also available is the Silent Witness web site.  The web site is not recommended for reporting emergencies or crimes in progress.

Mass Casualty Drill, Outdoor Alert Test on Saturday April 11

Wake Forest Emergency Medical Services will soon be conducting a mass casualty drill to test campus resources in case of a serious accident.

Those on campus during the morning of April 11 will likely see a simulated incident and student EMTs responding to the incident. The incident will include patients with varying degrees of simulated injuries. Emergency vehicles will be on campus and some traffic may occur.   The drill will run from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

On the same day, Wake Forest University will be testing its outdoor alert equipment that is part of the University’s Wake Alert emergency notification system. Anyone outside on campus will likely hear chimes followed by test messages announcing an active shooter, an armed intruder, a tornado or other threatening weather. This test will occur between 10 and 11 a.m.

No action is required by anyone who hears these test messages. If an actual emergency were to occur, the numerous test messages would not be used.

Anyone with questions about the mass casualty drill or testing may call emergency manager August Vernon at 336-758-3377.

Senior Sendoff – Encourage Your Seniors to Register

The Senior Sendoff is a celebration for current seniors to come together to look back on their four years at Mother So Dear, and reminisce about the wonderful time! This event is put on each April by the Office of Campus Life and the Office of Alumni Engagement. Last year, alumna Mary Tribble (’82), spoke to the graduating class on why their legacy as Wake Foresters was far from over, and why they should “Go Forward, For Humanity”.  The event takes place downtown at a venue chosen by each class’ committee, and is an evening full of fun with friends dancing to live music, enjoying fancy food and drinks, and listening throughout the evening to toasts from peers.

The Spring 2015 Senior Sendoff date is Wednesday, April 22.

The Office of Alumni Engagement has been involved in the execution of this event since 2014, and looks forward to doing so for many years to come! It is such a thrill for our office to celebrate each class, as we welcome them to the alumni family, and help get connected and involved with their Deacon community, no matter where they are being “sent off” on the next chapter in their lives. Here’s to you, seniors!

If you would like to at all be involved as a student or alumni in the planning of The Senior Sendoff, please reach out to Stephen Edwards.

Summer Storage Options

Some parents and families have had questions about shipping and/or storing their students’ belongings over the summer.  Because our residence halls get used over the summer for summer school, camps and conferences, students cannot store their belongings in their residence halls.

For students who want to ship their belongings home, Mail Services on campus has shipping supplies and can do the shipping as well.  They also have hand trucks students can use.  Mail Services will store some belongings for up to 10 students who are going to the first session of summer school ($30 for two weeks, and available on a first come, first served basis).

Residence Life and Housing has provided the following list of end of year storage options.  The local storage companies listed below are convenient to campus and students have used them in the past.  None of these companies are affiliated with the University.

Clery Notice: Title IX Investigation by Wake Forest

In compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (the “Clery Act”), Wake Forest University issues timely notices to alert the campus community of Clery Act crimes or other serious incidents that the University determines represent a serious and ongoing threat to the campus.

Please be aware that the following message contains information about sexual violence. See the end of this message for resource information.

A sexual assault that took place on campus during the early morning hours on March 21, 2015 was reported yesterday to the Wake Forest University Title IX Office. The student awoke later in the morning and found indications that they had been sexually assaulted. The incident took place inside a residential hall on-campus and a Title IX investigation is ongoing.Wake Forest University is providing resources to assist the individuals involved in this incident, and will continue to take actions to maintain the safety and security of the campus community.

If you have any information that might assist Wake Forest University and the Title IX Office in their investigation of this incident, please contact us at (336) 758-7258 or titleixcoordinator@nullwfu.edu.

– Be respectful of yourself and others. Make sure that any sexual act is OK with your partner, and remember that consent is an active process, not the absence of a “no.”

-If you feel uneasy, go to a safe location and call a friend or the police. When your safety is at risk or you need a safe escort on campus, contact University Police at (336) 758-5911.

-If you notice a situation that seems unsafe for another person, intervene if it is safe to do so or call for support.

-Remember that the majority of sexual assaults are perpetrated by someone the survivor knows. Someone can feel that they are in a safe place with safe people and be sexually assaulted.
