Good Evening Deacs –

We hope you are well and excited for the football season to get underway this weekend! As a reminder, there are a variety of activities related to this weekend’s football home opener against Clemson.

As we move into the weekend, please be mindful that all University and Residence Life and Housing policies remain in effect. Please be mindful of the following:

  • Residents must wear face coverings when they are outside of their room. If a resident chooses to have their door open to meet other residents, the residents should have on face coverings.
  • Guests are defined as a Wake Forest student with a current room assignment on the Reynolda Campus or in University-sponsored housing.
    • Students must adhere to all of the requirements for guests:
      • One guest per resident of the living unit (e.g., apartment, house, suite, semi-suite, bedroom)
      • Six feet of distance between all individuals must be maintained
      • No more than 10 people in the living unit at one time (fewer if social distancing is not possible)
      • All individuals must wear a face-covering during the period of visitation.
      • No guests may stay overnight.
  • Visitors are not permitted inside our residential communities. A visitor is defined as:
    • A non-WFU residential student,
    • A WFU student who lives off-campus,
    • A friend from another institution,
    • A family member.
  • The Undergraduate Alcohol and Other Drug Policy states that possession or consumption of alcoholic beverages and/or other drugs is permitted only in accordance with this policy and applicable laws. Failure to comply with this policy and applicable laws could subject the individual and/or group to conduct action within the University.

If you have questions, don’t hesitate to ask your community staff or contact us at

As we host one opponent in orange this weekend, let’s steer clear of another. Keeping campus in the yellow and out of the orange keeps us all where we want to be. So cheer and celebrate responsibly, stay safe and continue to Show Humanitate!

Best –
