It was a bit of a wet Family Weekend for us, but I hope that if you attended, you had a great time despite the occasional burst of rain. I loved seeing so many families – I am told close to 1,700 families were here with us! Today will be brief because I am playing catch-up on my inbox.
Face to Face with Doris Kearns Goodwin and Michael Beschloss this Weds!
Please encourage your Deacs to take advantage of our Face to Face series this Wednesday, Sept. 27 with presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin and bestselling author Michael Beschloss. There is a free student-led event in Wait Chapel at 5 p.m.; doors open at 4 p.m. To learn more about this free event (including new security protocols), visit the Face to Face website.
Multicultural sorority interest meeting
I got an email last week about an upcoming set of interest meetings for our multicultural sorority. If this is something that would interest your Deac, please share:
“Delta Xi Phi, WFU’s only multicultural sorority, will host interest sessions on October 2 from 4-6 p.m. in the Women’s Center and October 3 from 4-6 p.m. in the Intercultural Center. As a multicultural sorority, Delta Xi Phi believes that culture is multifaceted and extends beyond race. One of DXP’s main goals is to increase multicultural awareness and inclusivity on campus through programming and advocacy.
Delta Xi Phi’s pillars are: advancement of women through higher education, community service, increasing multicultural awareness, sisterhood, and friendship. Interest sessions are open to all non Greeks who identify as female and are meant to be informal and fun opportunities to learn more about the sorority and each other. Questions? Contact email@example.com.”
