Because of power and internet outages as well as dangerous travel conditions, Wake Forest University has cancelled all classes for the remainder of today, Thursday, Oct. 29.

Students should communicate directly with faculty about any issues related to outages and classes that occurred before this notification.

On campus and in surrounding Wake Forest properties, power and internet connections may continue to be intermittent while repair work is completed. Trees and limbs are down on campus, and crews are working to clear them.

Faculty, staff and students on campus should limit movement as much as possible. Off-campus faculty, staff and students should only come to campus for essential reasons and should use caution in traveling because of road closures, downed trees, debris from wind damage and other potential hazards.

For the most up-to-date information on campus dining options, including potentially revised hours of operation, please go to
