Director’s Corner: The Home Stretch

As we begin the excitement of finishing up the school year and look forward to Summer internships and graduation, I’d like to take this opportunity to remind you of a few important things. Just this last weekend, we had our Red Carpet Weekend, showing prospective students from each program lots of Wake Forest love! We had some wonderful candidates visit and I am excited about the new crop coming in. Thank you to all who participated in the weekend’s various events. Your engagement means a lot to those who are looking for a supportive environment in which to complete their graduate business studies.

Secondly, we are coming up on another exciting weekend! Friday night, we have the Annual Charity Auction which will benefit the Kids of Childhood Cancer. This is a wonderful opportunity to come out and support a charity that  helps one of our very own in the Schools of Business. You all know Officer Charlie, who keeps us safe and always has a friendly smile. This organization has provided wonderful support for Charlie’s son and his family during Vinnie’s illness. Every dollar we raise will go directly to benefit other families with members suffering from cancer. On Saturday, following the Charity Auction, you will have a chance to demonstrate your golf prowess (or lack thereof) at the Annual Alumni Golf Tournament. If you haven’t signed up, it’s not too late! Come out and enjoy the wonderful weather and the networking opportunity!

Some of you will also notice that I’ve sent out a number of requests for you to complete various rankings surveys. Your participation in these surveys is critical to our continued success and improvement. I know you are busy with papers, exams, quizzes and other deliverables, but we’d really appreciate you taking the time to respond to our requests.

As I look at the calendar, I can’t believe were only a few weeks away from the end of another school year. I know that it has flown by for you, but I sincerely hope that you have had a wonderful year and that Wake Forest has been good to you. For those moving on to bigger and better things after graduation, I wish you the very best. I hope you will stay in touch and let me know how you’re doing. For those who will be back, I hope you have a wonderful summer and that you are able to practice all of the things you’ve been learning this year! In either case, stay in touch with your faculty and staff and let us know how you’re doing. It’s awfully quiet around here in the summers!
