A Short Break for the Daily Deac

Many thanks to all our faithful readers of the Daily Deac.  It’s our pleasure to bring you a glimpse of life on campus each weekday.

Our colleagues who work on the technical side of all the WFU websites have been doing server migrations on various WFU web pages, and it’s our turn to move The Parents’ Page.  Because of the need to migrate all our website as cleanly as possible, we need to take a temporary hiatus from December 19-21 so the tech folks can do their thing.  Accordingly, we’ll have no new Daily Deacs, new parent news, etc. until our part of the migration is finished, which we’re told will be December 21st.  (Of course, if any urgent news happened, be assured that our tech team would update the site so you are informed.)  You should not notice any major changes to our site; most of the work being done is all on the back end, tech side.

What we normally would have blogged about during those days would be how quiet campus is without your students!  It always seems so empty without them, though I must confess parking is a lot more plentiful.  We’d probably also speculate that your students arrived at home with a mountain of laundry, the appetite of an offensive line, and a need for 15 hours of uninterrupted sleep upon arrival.

One final reminder: the University is closed for all faculty and staff from December 24 through January 31.  For those of you who wish to make gifts to the parents’ campaign of the Wake Forest Fund (please do! we need your support!), gifts can be made online at our secure web site; please check the box for parents’ campaign.  Please give as generously as you are able – your gifts directly benefit your students’ experience!
