Buses to shuttle students, faculty and staff to campaign event

The Hillary Clinton campaign has made arrangements for buses to shuttle Wake Forest students, faculty and staff to and from a campaign event to be held at 2 p.m. Oct. 27 at the Coliseum. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and First Lady Michelle Obama will be at the event.

Starting at 10:30 a.m. Oct. 27 in Parking Lot P (east side of Wait Chapel), buses will begin taking students, faculty and staff to the coliseum.  The buses will continue transporting campus community members from the campus to the Coliseum until the event begins.

After the event, people returning to campus can board buses at the same Coliseum location where they had been dropped off earlier.

Anyone attending the event is encouraged by the Clinton campaign to RSVP.  The Clinton campaign will send additional details to those who RSVP.

Statement from Wake Forest University:  As an educational institution, Wake Forest is committed to promoting the free exchange of ideas, which includes providing a forum for speakers who express a wide variety of political views.  The University’s tax-exempt status, however, requires that it not engage in any political campaign activity, which means the University is prohibited from endorsing or opposing any candidate for public office. Wake Forest takes its obligation in this regard very seriously.  This event does not represent an endorsement by Wake Forest of any candidate for public office.
