DC summer housing and The Defamation Experience

Today is a handful of bits from WFU:

For students planning to intern in Washington, DC for the summer, one potential option is to stay in the Wake Washington apartments. Click here for summer housing dates, rates, and to apply. You may reach out to Jenna Radford at radforjl@nullwfu.edu if you have questions. We give preference to those who apply as a group of four occupants staying for the full summer.

If you can’t make it to the Pinstripe Bowl, but want to watch it with other Wake Foresters, our WAKECommunities (aka regional clubs) are getting together some gamewatching parties. Join one in your town – or host one if you want. These are open to all alumni, parents/families (and of course your students!), and friends of WFU. Details will be coming together shortly – check here for info.

I received information last week about a special event coming in February. It is open only to WFU students, faculty, and staff – but if you think your Deac would like this, please pass it on to them. I am very intrigued by the idea of a play and then facilitated discussion.

In February, we will be bringing a program to Wake Forest entitled “The Defamation Experience.”  This riveting courtroom drama, written by award-winning playwright Todd Logan, will unfold before your eyes — and you will deliberate and vote on the verdict! After the votes are tallied, a facilitated post-show discussion will explore a dialogue of race, class, religion, gender, and the law that promises to stimulate critical discussions and challenge preconceived notions.
