It’s a Wake Forest tradition to usher in the holidays with the Lovefeast, our annual candlelight service in Wait Chapel. Since 1965, we’ve gathered as a campus community for seasonal music, reflection and inspirational readings. This year’s event will be Sunday, Dec. 3, at 7 p.m. Chapel doors open at 6 p.m., and the prelude begins at 6:40 p.m. Seating is limited. For more information about Lovefeast and to view the livestream, visit lovefeast.wfu.edu.

Support your community: In this season of giving, Wake Foresters are encouraged to support campus community members in financial crisis by donating to the Chaplain’s Emergency Fund.

Join in the conversation for “Constitutions Old and New: A Conversation on Constitutional Change” on Thursday, Sept. 15, at 5 p.m. in Annenberg Auditorium in Carswell Hall.
The U.S. Constitution is among the oldest in the world and one that has become increasingly difficult to change, despite growing challenges to democracy and representation in the U.S. A movement for convening a constitutional convention has gained some momentum in recent years. Chile, on the other hand, has drafted a completely new constitution in response to social movements demanding deep political and societal change. The country’s Constitutional Convention completed a draft document that goes to an up/down vote in a national referendum on Sept. 4.
