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.

Michele Gillespie named Dean of the College

20111214gillespie5206Dear Wake Forest Faculty, Staff and Students,

President Hatch and I are delighted to report that, after an extensive national search, Wake Forest’s Presidential Endowed Professor of Southern History Michele Gillespie has been named the new Dean of the College. She will officially assume leadership of the College on July 1. I am immensely grateful to my search-committee colleagues who provided valuable insights throughout this process.

Dr. Gillespie joined the Wake Forest faculty in 1999. She was named Kahle Family Professor of History in 2003 and served as associate provost for academic initiatives from 2007-2010. In 2013, she was the first Wake Forest faculty member to be honored with an endowed Presidential Chair, which recognizes and supports faculty who excel in both academic leadership and outstanding scholarship. She also currently serves as the faculty representative to the Advancement Committee of our Board of Trustees and is a member of the University Senate.

A noted teacher, scholar, historian and author, Dr. Gillespie balances academic rigor with integrating community engagement into her work and her classes. She teaches courses on the history of the American South, U.S. labor, women’s and gender history, and her research explores constructions of class, race, gender and region in the social and economic history of the American South. Her most recent book, “Katharine and R.J. Reynolds: Partners of Fortune in the Making of the New South,” has received national acclaim.

Under her leadership, Wake Forest launched the Institute for Public Engagement, now incorporated into the University’s Pro Humanitate Institute, which builds relationships with community partners and supports publicly engaged teaching, service-learning courses and volunteer opportunities. In 2010, Dr. Gillespie was honored as a pioneer in the national service-learning field with North Carolina’s Robert L. Sigmon Service Learning Award.

Our committee, as well as President Hatch, was impressed with Dr. Gillespie as a highly respected professor and faculty member, a first-class scholar, and a dedicated member of the Wake Forest community who understands what makes the Wake Forest experience distinctive and fulfilling for our most important constituents: our students.

Please join me in congratulating Dr. Gillespie our new Dean of the College and join us for a reception in her honor in the Reynolda Hall Green Room onMonday, March 30 from 2:30-3:30 p.m.

Provost and Professor of Politics and International Affairs

Here are two additional pieces of information from the Office of Academic Advising:

From the English department regarding Division II core literature courses:

Lower division advisers should know that all 100-level English classes that count for the Division II requirement (Eng150, Eng165, Eng175, Eng185, Eng190) are designed to have equivalent levels of difficulty. All 100-level core courses require roughly 20 pages of formal writing, and have similar reading loads. In past semesters, sections of Eng150 have filled, with wait lists, long before the sections of Eng175, 185 and 190 have reached capacity. Please remind your students that Eng185 and Eng190 are NOT more difficult than Eng150 and Eng165. Also, please tell students planning to major in English that they should enroll in a 200-level gateway course (rather than a 100-level core course), and that ALL students are welcome to fulfill the divisional requirement with any one of our 300-level English courses.

In sum, students seeking to fulfill the Division II requirement should be encouraged to distribute themselves equally across the 100-level options, not limiting themselves to Eng150. If students want more information about the Spring 2015 offerings in core literature, you can direct them to Descriptions of the Fall 2015 core literature courses will soon be available at
