Don’t forget From the Ground Up

This is the last Daily Deac of the week, so here is your friendly reminder to join us live at 7 pm Saturday for From the Ground Up, our Facilities-Dance collaboration on the Quad.

The link for Saturday’s livestream will be There is also a great discussion guide if you want to discuss it with your Deac:

I did not make it to the Quad lastnight but am supposed to see it tonight, and I can’t wait. I watched it on the Quad Cam and even just onscreen, it was amazing. Here are a few thoughts from my colleagues who were present last night:

“I brought my family to see the show last night and highly recommend it for everyone; you’ll likely see lots of familiar faces in the show! Get there a bit early to get a seat or bring a blanket to sit on the grass.”

“[we] there last night and had chills, and oftentimes almost brought to tears, at the remarkable performance last night. We both walked away feeling so proud to be at an institution that not only values our facilities staff, but provides an opportunity for them to represent their work, and the importance it plays in our work as well. Get there early, and be ready to be moved!”

“I was moved to see and be able to reflect on what all it takes to keep our University running – and running in such fine and beautiful shape.  Our valued colleagues who play these important roles, as represented so eloquently and elegantly by those appearing in the show, care deeply about this place and the essential and invaluable contributions they are making to our Wake Forest community.  We owe them all a debt of gratitude.  Do yourselves a favor and find your way to the Hearn Plaza either tonight or tomorrow night.  Kudos to our alumna Allison Orr and all those who worked so effectively to make this a reality.”

So do encourage your Deacs to go. And join us live on Saturday night.

Rounding out the week is a message from ARAMARK/Dining Services that may be of interest.

Is your student running low on Deacon Dining Food Dollars? If they are, for every $100 Food Dollars they add to their account this month Deacon Dining will donate $10 to Campus Kitchen and H.O.P.E.

For those who want to know how to add more food dollars or Deacon Dollars, the process just got easier:

You can go to the “QUICK ADD VALUE” web page, which will allow anyone to add food dollars or Deacon Dollars with only the need for the student last name and student ID number.  A page will open with a shopping cart style form to conduct a transaction and add funds.

As always, your students can also add dollars by stopping by the ARAMARK office in Reynolda Hall Room 12.

Make it a great weekend, Deac families!
