A message from President Hatch regarding Hurricane Harvey

President Hatch e-mailed this message to students, faculty and staff on Aug. 26:

Dear Wake Forest Students, Faculty and Staff,

Wake Forest University offers its support to students, alumni, parents, faculty and staff who have loved ones in the areas affected by Hurricane Harvey.

With many of our students returning to campus this weekend, we are mindful that we have members of the Wake Forest community who are either coming from Texas and Louisiana or have loved ones along the Gulf Coast.

We encourage you to contact the following resources, should the need arise:

  • Students experiencing issues returning to campus prior to the start of classes should contact their respective Dean’s office.
  • Parents are encouraged to contact the Office of Family Engagement should the University need to be aware of any extraordinary circumstances affecting their students.
  • And, as always, our Office of Alumni Engagement is here to assist with the needs of Wake Forest graduates.

The University will continue to monitor the news about Harvey’s impact and determine what specifically we can do to help students here as well as the greater Wake Forest family.


Nathan O. Hatch
