I will be out of the office today through Tuesday, then will be in for Move-In and Orientation for the Class of 2022. So brace for a few pre-posted blogs.

Today I want to share some of the items from the Advice for New Parents and Families page:

Grade expectations – how to help set realistic expectations on grades. Will be so helpful if you can have a chat with your Deac (no matter what year they will be at Wake) to help take some of their self-imposed pressure off their minds.

The bell tower of Wait Chapel is silhouetted against clouds and sky.

Advice from parents of sophomores, juniors, and seniors – we have asked families of upperclassmen/women to give some of their best advice/things they have learned along the way in order to help our new P’22s

Academics – making sense of course schedules and workload

Social or campus life – getting involved, making friends

Logistics – Move-In, air travel, letting go, and more

Finally, Wake Wash – you may want to consider giving your student the gift of Wake Wash – a laundry service run by our own WFU student entrepreneurs. This has become part of the fabric of campus life (bad pun award to me!)
