Today is the second Campus Day for Accepted Students, which is bringing about 400 families to campus on this grey and overcast day. Our Parent Programs office had a table set up with a display showcasing the Parents’ Page and other things, and we had a lot of nice families come up to say hello.
Interestingly enough, most of them who came to speak to us said their children were either Early Decision or had already decided to enroll. Normally at past Campus Days, about half of the families coming were already sold on WFU, the other half had students who were trying to take one last look at Wake and determine if they were coming here or would ultimately go to [INSERT OTHER TOP CHOICE].
I want to give a special shout out and thank you to all our visiting families who came up and told us they read the Daily Deac or follow us on Facebook or Twitter. We never know where our readers are unless they tell us, and it is always a delight to put a face and a name to the people we are reaching each day. So thanks to all our P’18 (Parent of Class of ’18) families who said hello.
This week we ran a bit late on our Information for First-Year families, so I wanted to bring it to your attention here. This week’s message was about “A Year in Review: A Look Back at the Academic Year.” And while it might be of particular interest to our freshmen families, the idea of reflecting at the end of each year is not a bad practice (even if your Deac is a new one just finishing high school!) If you think your student might benefit from some questions prompting reflection – if not now, maybe even over the summer – please feel free to share this.
