Last week was Tie a Yellow Ribbon week on campus, which is meant to raise awareness of sexual assault. There is a week’s worth of activities, which culminates in the Speak Out in Wait Chapel. Speak-out is a ceremony honoring sexual assault survivors. Anonymous testimonials submitted by Wake Forest students are read, and there is also music and time for reflection.
Here are some pictures from the event. While I was not able to attend, I know this to be a very powerful event on campus for those who go to it. Also, this was the 20th anniversary of Tie a Yellow Ribbon week on campus – an important milestone.
The Office of Family Engagement provides information and support to Wake Forest parents, guardians, grandparents, and family members. The office maintains the Family Engagement Page of the Wake Forest website, which is the primary vehicle of communication with families, as well as our Facebook and Twitter presence.
