Dear Wake Forest Students,

  • Places to eat on- and off-campus
  • Shuttle schedules for dining and shopping in Winston-Salem
  • Hours of operation for social and study spaces like ZSR Library and The Wellbeing Center and swimming pool
  • Important information from Residence Life & Housing, Student Health, and the University Counseling Center.
  • A list of things to do in the surrounding area

If you have any questions about Thanksgiving Break options, please email

If Your Student Has a Problem

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.
