Last Week of Classes

And the grey, drizzle has not really let up.  We need some relief and some sunshine to brighten up what is already a stressful week (last week of classes).

Hopefully all our parents and families remembered that tuition was due yesterday, December 1st.  If not, here’s information you need to take care of that.

In addition to the long list of events posted in yesterday’s blog, we’ve got two other potentially cheerful and fun activities to mention.  Many thanks to an intrepid Daily Deac family for passing this on: the University Concert Choir will be performing in the Holiday Choral Concert on Thursday, December 3rd at 7:30 pm in Brendle Recital Hall.

I also got an email today about something the Traditions Council will be hosting this Friday:

“Chris P. Day” is a celebration of Wake Forest Traditions, both old and new. Like Arnold Palmer Day, held in the spring around the time of the Masters Tournament, Chris P. Day celebrates an athlete and a “treat” dear to us all in Winston-Salem. Rather than the famous “Arnold Palmer” drink that we share with hundreds of Wake Forest students on Arnold Palmer day, we will give out Krispy Kreme donuts, which originated in Winston-Salem in 1937, on Chris P. Day – playing off the phonetics of “Chris P.” and “Krispy.”

The Traditions Council hopes to spread enthusiasm about athletics around campus as intensely and as often as possible. We know the addition of “Chris P. Day” will raise awareness and appreciation for Wake Forest Basketball and all of our athletic teams, while simultaneously enjoying a Deacon-favorite dessert. This year, Chris P. Day will be on Friday, December 4th, the day Wake Forest plays Arkansas. This is the last day of class for students, and the last game before students leave for Christmas Break.

We will be pairing up with Sports Marketing to have fun activities for passersby to participate in, Wake Forest gear to pass out, and will also be offering special “Chris P. Day” T-Shirts for sale. Chris P. Day will be a spectacular addition to Wake Forest Traditions; our hope is that this will be an annual event to celebrate Wake Forest’s amazing athletics. 

Please stop by and grab a Krispy Kreme donut, and feel free to order an awesome t-shirt via this link. We hope to see you all this Friday. Go Deacs!

If a Krispy Kreme can’t help you feel better as you head into finals, nothing can 🙂

There’s also Wake the Library to look forward to.

Tell your Deacs to hang in there.  We’ll see sun again, and they’ll get through all their projects, papers, and finals.  Then back home to you for a long break!
