Message from Wake Forest Communications and External Relations
Much of Jasper Memory Lane will be closed to motor vehicle traffic from 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 22, until 3 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 23, due to a University event planned for first-year undergraduate students.
The road will be closed from Luter Residence Hall to Collins Residence Hall for Friday Night Live, an event that is part of first-year orientation. Access to Faculty Drive will remain open in that area, but no traffic will be allowed in front of the residence halls along Jasper Memory Lane.
Vehicles parked in Lot J, behind Collins and South residence halls, may leave the lot by driving through adjacent Lot H, at the intersection of Jasper Memory Lane and Wingate Road.
All vehicles parked on Jasper Memory Lane must be removed by 5 p.m. on Aug. 22.
Friday Night Live will feature music provided by Wake Radio, food trucks and many outdoor games and activities. Hundreds of first-year students are expected.
Orientation organizers appreciate the community’s cooperation.
