EDITORS' PICKS

Here's to our newest Wake Foresters

Hampers. Rugs. Matching bedspreads. Photos of Deacon dogs. They should be in place now that freshman move-in has ended. Welcome to our 1,350 first-year students, an impressive lot, hailing from 45 states and 29 countries. Three-quarters were in the top 10 percent of their class, and they competed in an applicant pool of more than 13,000.

Seventeen left last week to spend the year in Copenhagen, Denmark, for a first-year abroad experience taught by Wake Forest and Danish faculty members. Fifty are headed to Wake Downtown for classes in the new engineering program. And Maya Angelou Residence Hall welcomed our newest Deacs Wednesday.

The entire student body is sure to be dazzled by the renovation of Reynolds Gym and an addition at Spry Stadium whose touching backstory represents a family's tribute to a faithful alumnus. Let the school year commence!

Best wishes,

Maria Henson
