The Wake Forest Wellbeing Center and Campus Recreation announced, recently, a summer dependent membership special.
This announcement was emailed to students, faculty and staff on June 3 by Wake Forest Communications and External Relations:
Starting June 5, crews will begin an extensive project on the center lawn of Hearn Plaza.
Crews will be busy removing all of the center lawn’s grass and taking numerous steps to improve drainage on the lawn. By July 19, new grass will have been put down and all work will be complete, according to current plans.
The work is intended, in part, to eliminate rainwater buildup at numerous Hearn Plaza locations, including on sidewalks.
Throughout the work, access to Hearn Plaza’s buildings will continue. And, sidewalks will remain open for use by students, faculty, staff and others.
