The following message was emailed to the campus community:
Students, faculty and staff are encouraged today, Oct. 31, to stay informed on weather conditions. Unstable weather is forecast for the Winston-Salem area. Storms are possible today, including in the afternoon and evening. Some storms could be severe, according to weather forecasts.
Information about today’s weather, including current forecasts, is widely available on local TV stations, such as WXII, WGHP, WFMY and Spectrum’s News 14. Information is also easily accessed from other news organizations, such as The Weather Channel.
The WeatherSTEM stations use a combination of weather instruments and sensors to take environmental measurements and offer frequently updated details on temperature, humidity, the heat index, barometric pressure and more. Forecasts for several days ahead is available, too. Each station includes a sky camera, with one directed toward Kentner Stadium, Reynolds Gym, Farrell Hall and Wait Chapel, while the other camera is directed across BB&T Field.
The stations also offer information through Facebook and Twitter accounts, which are updated through automation. On Facebook, the accounts are identified as Wake Forest Weatherstem and Wake Forest Football Weatherstem. On Twitter, the stations can be followed at WakeForestWxand @WFUFootballWx.

One of the best ways parents/families can help their students is to let them solve their own problems. Use the Stop, Drop, and Roll method when your student contacts you with a problem. The flyer also lists contact information for serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
Select slide shows and handouts from Orientation sessions are available online.
