July 11 Email About Project Wake

Dear New Demon Deacons:

Have you signed up for Project Wake?  If you have not, it’s time!  See http://newstudents.wfu.edu/summer-academic-project/ for details & sign up instructions.

We at WFU are very excited about Project Wake!  As I mentioned in my email sent last Friday, each day this week I will be forwarding you some of this excitement as expressed by different members of our community.  Today’s encouragement to participate comes from a 2015 WFU graduate, Nia Evans.  Nia spent her first year as an alumnus working in the Dean’s office and among other things, she helped to plan this year’s Project Wake.  Here is what Nia wants you to know:

“Project Wake is an incredible opportunity to engage in an informal, collaborative space. This is not a class or a lecture but a conversation with equal participants. Your voice is a crucial contributor to your group. It’s wonderful to have the opportunity to exchange ideas and perspectives without stakes! No grade, no worries, The beauty of Wake Forest is the abundance of spaces you can find dedicated to intellectual exchange and collaboration based on your own interests. Project Wake is not only an incredible experience but it’s also a tool to help you better understand the Wake Forest ethos.”
