The Alumni Newsletter of  WAKE FOREST UNIVERSITY

Ken Bennett

Travel & Leisure recently selected Wake Forest as the state's most beautiful campus. No surprise here.

EDITORS' PICKS

Living the motto

By the time you receive this newsletter you can be sure that big-hearted Wake Foresters will be making themselves known in communities around the country. Beginning last Saturday through tomorrow (with a few dates in May) this is the time we celebrate Pro Humanitate by raising awareness about hungry children and families. Deacs have volunteered to help. "Excited to show the world that #GoodWearsBlack," said one tweet. "Over 1k sandwiches made & we went for more bread," said another in D.C.

Chelsea Klein ('14, MA '16), one of Alumni Engagement's drivers of the 42-foot Airstream RV known as the Streakin' Deacon, reported from Charlotte at the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina. Thirty alumni, parents and friends showed up Saturday to sort and package donated food. "At the end of the day, after the work was done, laughs shared and memories made, we were fortunate to reflect on our many blessings and thankful to be a part of a University that commits itself to humanity each and every day," she wrote on the blog for The Streakin' Deacon tour.

For humanity,
