Today campus is closed because of snow. The 3-5″ we were predicted to have didn’t come to pass. We only have an inch or two, and that got tapped down by sleet lastnight. You can check out the snow (while it lasts) via the Quad Cam. For those of you who are wondering about dining options on campus, there are still some. Check out ARAMARK’s Campus Dish website for hours and availability.
Since I can’t get to work and bring you any stories from campus, I’m bringing you a different story and a plea for help. Wake Forest has a new project, the Innovation Quarter, which has been selected as a finalist for the Great Places NC People’s Choice Award in the National Historic Rehabilitation Category.
The Wake Forest Innovation Quarter is in the historical downtown business district. The Innovation Quarter is a unique community that is being developed to support life science and information technology research and development. The quarter is being developed around the expanding biomedical campus for Wake Forest University Health Sciences (WFUHS) that will create a nexus of intellectual activity attracting new biotechnology investment and development to the heart of the city.
Great Places in North Carolina is an awards program created by the American Planning Association in 2012 to highlight Great Places and the communities and people that have created them.
Will you show your WFU pride and help vote for the Innovation Quarter? Voting is open now and ends at 5 p.m. on February 27. We are currently in second place. Vote for the Innovation Quarter online.
