Today is a somber day on campus, the anniversary of 9/11. The Pro Humanitate Institute has done a beautiful visual display on Manchester (aka Mag) Quad today, with tiny flags commemorating those who passed away that day. There is also a series of service opportunities for students to take part in if they wish to. For all our students, faculty, staff, parents, and families who are feeling this anniversary in personal ways today, our thoughts and prayers are with you.
On a much lighter note, I was in the Benson Center and there were signs for a number of other campus activities coming up. This weekend is Awake All Night, with the theme of Wakeopoly. This event is run by Student Union and is always a wonderful way for campus to come together and have a ton of fun in Benson after hours.
Tonight is the Secrest Artist Series event. Broadway’s Next Hit Musical, which is billed as an improvised musical that is based on audience input. It sounds incredible. Urge your students to go. Performances are free for students and there are two shows: 7:30 and 9:30 in Brendle Recital Hall.
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.
