Over the long weekend, our Diamond Deacs got some great news – we are headed to the NCAA Baseball Tournament! You can watch a video with Coach Tom Walter and the team’s reaction here. Their game will be this Friday at 4 pm, so that is an extra reason for you to dress for Black and Gold Fridays. Go Deacs! One other bit of athletics trivia to report, Jim Grobe, our former football coach who led us to the Orange Bowl in 2006, has been named the interim head coach at Baylor. Coach Grobe was always really nice to me, and I wish him well in that endeavor.
On the academics side, our newest Deacs in the Class of 2020 received an email over the weekend from the Office of Academic Advising. If you are a P’20 new family, you can keep abreast of your new students’ official emails about Orientation here. Be sure to check out all the pages in the purple Parents and Families menu that is on the lower left of all the Newstudents.wfu.edu pages.
It’s a beautiful sunny day here – check us out on the Quad Cam any time.
