Happy Friday, Deac families. Hope your Deacs enjoyed the [beastly hot and sweaty] Hit the Bricks yesterday!
Fall Break is next Thursday and Friday (Oct. 11-12). An important consideration for Deacs staying on campus is the Fall Break Dining Hours of operation. Dining schedules are different, so they will want to be aware of what is open when (and what is not).
We’re about a month into school, and if you have not already done so, this is a good time to consider sending a care package to your Deac. It’s always great to get a package from home. Fill it with goodies – food is always great, but you could also send other items. If you can, send enough goodies so that your student can share – it is always a bonus, especially to our first-year students who are still trying to get to know their halls and find friend groups, to have something like a big batch of cookies they can share with other folks on the hall.
So, how do you mail things to campus? The answer depends on whether you are shipping via US Mail or UPS/FedEx.
Regular US Mail uses a PO Box number and the zip code 27109, which is unique to Wake Forest. FedEx & UPS require a street address, and they won’t accept the words ‘PO Box’ in the address, so we have to swap the word ‘Unit’ for ‘PO Box’ and add 27106 as the zip.
