Best of the WFU Web

Today’s Daily Deac is taking a look at some of the highlights on the WFU web site.

Whenever you see a beautiful picture of campus, there’s a 99% chance that it was taken by Ken Bennett, our University Photographer.  Most of you see Ken’s work all the time, but this is a chance to hear a little more about the man behind the camera in the article Pictures Worth 1,000 Words.  Ken has an exhibit in the ZSR Library as well – it will be up through the fall semester, so check it out when you come to campus.

Our News Service did a fun article called Looking Back at 2013-14 that talks about some of the major milestones of the past academic year.   If you want to take a stroll down memory lane, that’s a good place to start.

We have a wonderful Secrest Artists Series season lined up for your students.   The Series is free for students, faculty and staff at Wake Forest University, and has showcased distinguished national and international performers.  Past SAS artists include:  Itzhak Perlman, Christopher Parkening, Ravi Shankar, Doc Severinsen and his Big Band, Denyce Graves, and the National Symphony with Leonard Slatkin.  Talk to your students now and tell them not to miss this great opportunity.

Before school starts back up again, it might be a nice time to talk to your students about stress (and how to manage it) as well as how to be true to their feelings.  James Raper, Interim Director of the University Counseling Center, has some advice in Give Yourself Permission to Play.

Looking for a great book for your book club or that last trip to the beach before summer is gone?  The ZSR Library offers a Summer Reading List for you.   (I just finished The Goldfinch myself and it was a tremendous read).
