This message was emailed by President Hatch to students, faculty and staff on Oct. 10:
In the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew, Wake Forest University offers its support to students, alumni, parents, faculty and staff who have loved ones in affected areas.
While Winston-Salem was outside the storm’s direct impact and those on our campus are safe, we are concerned about people along the Eastern seaboard, including eastern North Carolina, and are mindful that many in our campus community have family and friends that were in the storm’s path.
We encourage you to contact the following resources, should the need arise:
- The University Counseling Center, Chaplain’s Office, Campus Life and resident advisers are available to listen to students who need to speak with someone here.
- Parents are encouraged to contact the Office of Family Engagement at email@example.com should the University need to be aware of any extraordinary circumstances affecting their students.
- And, as always, our Alumni Office is here to assist with the needs of Wake Forest graduates.
For those wishing to volunteer time or donate to relief efforts, the North Carolina VOAD (Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster) has links to agencies supporting disaster relief.
The University will continue to monitor recovery efforts and determine what specifically we can do to help students here as well as the greater Wake Forest family.
Nathan O. Hatch

Please join me in congratulating and commemorating a marvelous class of Reynolda Campus faculty and staff retiring from Wake Forest this year. We are grateful for the many contributions from this remarkable group of individuals, who together have more than 800 years of service to the University: Read more
