This week I have been at a professional conference for higher education administrators who work with parents and families (AHEPPP is the organization, and it is filled with remarkable, highly talented people; I am learning a lot). Because I am out of the office, I have been pre-posting content for the blog.
Today I want to help AHEPPP out a little bit with some benchmarking. They offer polls for us to use with our parent and family constituencies; we put up the poll, you answer it, and then AHEPPP can get a better idea of national trends.
This poll is about your students and budgeting. There is no right or wrong answers, and no personally-identifiable data. So please take a moment and answer this one question survey. Thanks in advance for your help.
Also, got a message about Local Lovefeasts:
One of Wake Forest’s oldest traditions is its annual Lovefeast. The first Moravian Lovefeast was served in Germany on August 13, 1727, and is styled after a common meal shared by the early church as described in the Book of Acts. The first lovefeast in North Carolina was held on the evening of the arrival of the Moravians at Bethabara (just a few short miles north of the Reynolda campus) in 1753.
You can join a Local Lovefeast in various cities, or ask to host one in your area. If one is not in your area, you can watch the livestream from your house. This is a great way for parents and families (as well as alumni) to connect to one of the most cherished WFU holiday traditions. Explore the site here and you can see your options.
