Busy Week Ahead

This is a busy week.  And I am not even talking about inside the classroom – I know your students are busy there – these events are terrific extras and add-ons and enhancements.student union homecoming

Homecoming is this coming weekend, and Student Union has a whole host of programming every day of the week for your students to enjoy.  The Student Union poster shows the activities, but there are also homemade posters on campus, along with black and gold balloons and streamers decorating some of the iron railings on campus.

9 15 14 railingsThere’s an Instagram contest going on too.  Your students can tag their photos with #wfuhc and they may be the lucky homecoming-contest-facebookwinner of an autographed football from Coach Clawson.

9 15 14 career signThe Career Fair is this Wednesday from 12-4 in Benson 401.  Hopefully the students will have a strong turnout.  I saw this sign taped on the Quad to advertise it.  There is a nice list of organizations planning to attend as well.

The Campus Kitchen’s new lounge space is having a grand opening this Friday from 4-7 pm in Kitchen Hall.

Meditation at WFU FlyerThere are other opportunities too, not necessarily Homecoming related, but in keeping with our idea of wellbeing.  For students who are early risers, there is a meditation group on Monday-Wednesday-Friday mornings from 8:00-8:25 am, and also a Tuesday evening offering from 5:00-6:15 pm.  This could be one wellbeing option your students could explore to help them feel more peaceful and present in the moment and help with stress management and life balance.

Two more quick items and we’ll close for the day.

Today it feels like fall on campus.  Temps are in the low 70s, it’s a little cloudy but not gloomy.  Really lovely outside, and you can almost feel the urge to pull on a pair of jeans a comfy long sleeve shirt.

9 15 14 google carAnd finally, I saw this Google Maps Street View car in a WFU parking lot near Alumni Hall.  These are the cars that drive through cities with cameras everywhere to provide you with an all-angles view of streets as you look at Google Maps.  Could this mean that WFU is getting mapped?  After I typed that, I looked at Google Maps Street View of 1834 Wake Forest Road, Winston-Salem, and I see that we ARE street mapped!  But some of the roads look different now, particularly the Polo Road entrance to the big parking lot near Alumni Hall.  Wonder if the Google car is going to correct that??
