Dear Members of the Wake Forest Family,
When our world turns upside down, we want to hold on to those closest to our hearts.
Life has changed dramatically for all of us, and every day brings new information and new adjustments to our lives. Like you, we are trying to make sense of this “new normal” while we take care of our friends, families, and communities.
As President Hatch wrote in a recent letter, in times like these “we need to make sure that the stress of this crisis bends us toward each other.” And that means you, our Wake Forest alumni, friends, and family who hold Mother So Dear. To that end, you’ll find here a new landing page designed by the Alumni Engagement team to bring ideas, comfort, and connection during the challenging days ahead.
Please reach out to us to share your own experiences and expertise by filling out the form below. You’ll find it under the section titled, “How can we help?” We’ll keep adding resources and virtual programming in the days ahead, so check back often for more information and inspiration. We are here to keep you moored to things that are constant and true.
In the meantime, we know you will approach these times in the spirit of Pro Humanitate by looking outward as well as within. We look forward to hearing your stories and seeing you again on campus someday soon.
