Wake Forest officials are staying on track with the weekend schedule for freshman orientation and other back-to-school activities, while monitoring closely news reports of the progress of Hurricane Irene.
Officials met Aug. 24 to discuss scheduled weekend events and latest reports about the hurricane, which is scheduled to move along the East Coast during the weekend. Forecasters predict Hurricane Irene will make landfall Saturday in far eastern North Carolina.
Wake Forest’s freshman orientation is set to remain on schedule with move-in set for 8 a.m. Aug. 26. Orientation events will continue through the weekend and into next week. Returning students are set to begin moving onto campus on Aug. 28 and 29.
Officials will continue monitoring news of Hurricane Irene as the weekend approaches and during the weekend. Meanwhile, as in past years, the University is prepared for the possibility of rain or other weather conditions that might affect outdoor events, in particular. All outdoor events for orientation routinely have rain plans.
