Back to school

Remember that move-in feeling? I heard a dad last week who was struggling to juggle two laundry baskets filled with his daughter's mountain of stuff joke, to no one in particular, "This is the WHOLE amount I had when I went to college!" His daughter was not a first-year student, so dad knew the drill, but he could have been speaking for a lot of us. Where did the time go? Didn't we have only a bag or two, a clock radio and a clunky stereo system to tote?

At Wake Forest Magazine, our team members enjoy watching move-in days unfold. We always find poignant (and funny) moments with parents who went to Wake Forest and are moving their sons and daughters to campus for their first year of college. They remember when dorms were "girls only" or "boys only." They remember their favorite places — Snack Pit, aka Snake Pit, anyone? Some recall falling in love on campus with the one they would marry. They all wonder where the time went. And now those alumni parents hope their children will love Wake Forest as much as they still do.

From our vantage point, the odds are excellent. For now, take a look at some of the move-in highlights and memories. Send good thoughts to #WFU22. Most of all, enjoy!
