Wake Forest to be open Wednesday

Wake Forest University’s Reynolda Campus will be open and will operate on its regular schedule Wednesday, Dec. 12.  This includes Wake Downtown.

Travel conditions vary in the Triad, including Winston-Salem, so all at Wake Forest are encouraged to be cautious. We urge everyone to prioritize safety and make their own decisions regarding their personal safety.

University shuttle service will be provided Wednesday.  There are some changes in scheduling on Wednesday.

–Black and Gold Line:  The first departure time from campus will be at 8:20 a.m.  If you do not have an exam at 9 a.m. Wednesday, it is requested that you wait for the 9:20 a.m. departure shuttle for a ride to campus.

–Wake Downtown: Service will begin at 8:30 a.m. and will operate on a 30-minute loop throughout the day.  Shuttles will depart in front of Benson University Center at the bottom of the hour (xx:30) and depart Wake Downtown at the top of the hour (xx:00).

–The Gray Day Line, the Gray Night Line and the OnCall Service will not operate on Wednesday.  In addition, there will be no Brookwood service on Wednesday due to the neighborhood’s road conditions.  If you drive from that area, please park in the First Assembly of God Church parking lot, off Polo Road and Long Drive.

To assist in snow removal operations on campus, the University is requesting that students with a vehicle parked in any faculty/staff parking lot or along campus roads relocate their vehicle to a general parking lot this afternoon (Tuesday) by 6 p.m.

Freshman and sophomore students with a vehicle already parked on campus are approved to park in general lots for the rest of the week.

Since there is no Gray Line service on Wednesday, students who have a satellite parking permit are authorized to park in the First Assembly of God Church parking lot off Polo Road and Long Drive on Wednesday.

Please continue to check the Wake Alert website at wakealert.wfu.edu for any other announcements that may be made.
