It is a quiet Monday on campus in advance of the Thanksgiving holiday. Some of our students have already departed campus early, having figured out that they have not exhausted their allowable absences from class, or that their faculty member has adjusted the schedule for departures. So it is a quieter day all around.
I will be out for most of the week myself, so we will not run a Daily Deac Weds-Friday during the Thanksgiving break.
Thanksgiving break hours and how to reach campus
For students staying on campus for Thanksgiving, they will want to note the hours of operation for campus services. Do plan ahead for any times where things will be fully closed.
There are no classes, and administrative offices will be closed, for the Thanksgiving holiday, Nov. 22-26. We remind families of the resources of our After Hours Help page, in the (I hope unlikely) event you or your Deac would need them:
Emergency Response (24/7, year round)
- University Police – 336.758.5911 for the kinds of emergencies where you would normally call 911 (e.g., immediate life and safety concerns)
- 336-758-CARE (2273) is a service that ensures someone will always be available (i.e., 24/7 M-F, weekends and university holidays) to provide caring and thoughtful consultation services for Wake Forest students in need of mental health assistance or support
- Student Health After Hours Nurse Line – An on-call nurse is available 24/7 to assist with current healthcare concerns during non-clinic hours. Please call 336.758.5218 and follow the prompts. (If you are having a medical emergency, please call 911.) A list of off campus providers is available here.
P’27s: Weekly Message and Letters So Dear
We are coming down to the end of our Weekly Messages for First-Year Families; those run through the fall semester only. By and large, there are fewer week-by-week milestones of the college adjustment that happen during the spring semester, and for those that do, we’ll talk about them here in the Daily Deac.
Email about the Lovefeast (12/3)
Our University Chaplain, the much beloved Tim Auman, sent a message to campus today about one of the aforementioned traditions, the Lovefeast. You can read it here.
No matter what year your Deac is, encourage them to go to the Lovefeast. For our ’27s, this will be a totally new experience. For our ’24s and ’25s, while they may have gone to a Lovefeast, the ones we held during the height of the pandemic were atypical. I hope all our older students go to the Lovefeast this year to see it. The Lovefeast was always a balm to my soul in advance of finals – a time to feel peace, and community, and love.
