Chat with the Chief, University Police

The following message was sent to the Parent Programs office to be shared with Wake Forest parents and families.

————————–

Chat with the Chief is an event that is hosted by the University Police Department at different locations throughout the 2015-16 academic year. It presents the opportunity for the Wake Forest Community to speak informally with the Chief regarding campus safety issues, to enjoy free refreshments and to engage with others who are interested in creating a safer campus community.

The 2015-16 #CWTC events will take place in the lobbies of the Reynolda Campus freshman dorms, as our focus is for students to meet their Building Resource Officers and become familiar with our department as they begin their journey at Wake Forest University.

Other students, RA’s and GHD’s are encouraged to drop in anytime during this month’s Chat with the Chief Event on Thursday, October 22, 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. in the Luter Hall Main Lobby. The University Police Resource Officer assigned to this dorm, Officer Jeff Holleman, will also join us. Contact Erin McCulley-Davis with any questions.

Message from Office of Academic Advising about Last Day to Drop & Orientation Check-Ins

The following message was sent to new students (Class of 2019) from the Office of Academic Advising.

—————

Dear New Deacs,

I hope you enjoyed a wonderful Homecoming weekend, despite the weather!

Please be aware of several important things happening THIS WEEK:

  • The last day to drop a class without grade penalty is TUESDAY, SEP. 29.  After Tuesday, you cannot drop a class without making an appeal to the Committee on Academic Affairs.  The Committee approves late drops only if there are extenuating circumstances (e.g., family emergencies, lengthy illnesses).  The Committee does not approve late drops solely because a student did not receive a grade until after the last day to drop.  If you are wondering about whether to drop a class because you are unsure about where you stand, now is the time to time to talk to your professor.  If you receive a less than satisfactory grade after the last day to drop, continue to attend class and seek out academic support (e.g., professor’s office hours, tutoring, Learning Assistance Center, Office of Academic Advising).
  • The Major/Minor Fair is WEDNESDAY, SEP. 30 – see http://events.wfu.edu/event/major_minor_fair_5136#.VgFdHN-6e00
  • Required Fall Orientation Check-Ins begin this week (seehttp://newstudents.wfu.edu/orientation-programming/first-semester-checkins/)
    • LIVING IN COMMUNITY – Contact your RA if you need information about when your Living in Community check-in is scheduled.
    • ACADEMIC SUCCESS – the first of these check-ins occurs onOctober 12, but in preparation you have a short reflection dueOct. 5.  You can complete this reflection at:  http://goo.gl/forms/AOPW1PcYGO.

Contact us in OAA with any questions!

Sincerely,

~Dean Buchanan
