Wake Forest University will welcome the class of 2020 on Friday, Aug. 26. Members of the media are invited to attend new student move-in. Story ideas can be found here.
Media should enter through the University Parkway entrance. Some reserved parking for television trucks will be located beside Tribble Hall. Because of heavy traffic, all members of the media are encouraged to allow plenty of time to park and set up. Here are links to the campus parking map and an interactive map showing traffic flow.
Traffic around the Reynolda Campus is expected to be heavy throughout the day and will begin around 7 a.m. as families arrive for move-in, which officially begins at 8 a.m.
On Aug. 26, the University asks that faculty and staff enter campus through the Polo Road entrance. New students and their families will be encouraged to enter campus via the University Parkway and Reynolda Road entrances. The University will continue to run the Gray Line shuttle that will be operating on an on-call demand service on Aug. 26.
Additionally, the University will welcome back returning students on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 27 and 28.
