Because of weather conditions, the Reynolda Campus of Wake Forest will open at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, March 18. Classes scheduled to start before 10 a.m. will not meet Tuesday. The University’s Black and Gold shuttle lines will begin running at 8:50 a.m. Tuesday.

Wake Forest will conduct testing March 10-12 of an upgraded fire alarm system that will bring seven new voice messages to emergency speakers in halls and lobbies in 28 academic, administrative and residential buildings.
Anyone in those buildings likely will hear test messages announcing an active shooter, an armed intruder, a tornado or other threatening weather. Testing will also include shelter in place, building evacuation and all clear messages.
No action is required by anyone who hears the messages. If an actual emergency were to occur on those days, the test messages would not be used.
Because of weather conditions, the Reynolda Campus of Wake Forest will be closed for classes and offices on Friday, March 7.
Travel on and off campus is hazardous, so all are encouraged to be cautious outside. For information on campus dining, visit wakeforest.campusdish.com. For those planning to attend events on campus, check with the host or sponsoring organization.
Shuttle service between the first-year parking lot and campus will resume at noon today. Z. Smith Reynolds Library will be open until 5 p.m.
Please continue to check Wake Alert for any other announcements.
As of Thursday night, March 6, the plan for Wake Forest’s Reynolda Campus is to operate as normal on Friday. If weather conditions change overnight, there will be an announcement by 6 a.m. Friday to students, faculty and staff.
