Today’s Daily Deac is a laundry list of opportunities. Some for your Deac, some for you.
Student Involvement Fair is TODAY from 3:30-6 pm on the Manchester Quad (Mag Quad). Your Deacs (of any class year) should go and sign up for some clubs and activities. Particularly for the first-year students, this is a key way to get involved on campus and find your niche.
Men’s soccer is at home tonight: GO DEACS!

Did you know that Wake Forest has a Wake Washington program? It allows students to study in our nation’s capital while taking courses taught by WF professors AND to have internships (for credit) in a variety of organizations: businesses, museums, governmental organizations, NGOs, and more. In the fall of 2018, Dr. Bernadine Barnes of the Art department will be the faculty member in residence. If you have arty Deacs, or just have a Deac who wants a ‘semester away’ experience at home, this is a great program. See more in the brochure: wake-washington-barnes
