Special Events

VSC plans a variety of special one-time programs that provide opportunities for students to volunteer. Most of these events are large, annual events that require lots of volunteers in order for the event to be a success. There are also opportunities for students to get involved in the leadership of these events. Not only is this a great way to meet other students at Wake Forest, but the events also enable volunteers to work with a variety of community members and serve a variety of needs. If you want to get involved with any Special Events, contact Kathryn Webster, webskc13@wfu.edu.

Pro Humanitate Day — A campus-wide day of service. Serve with partners in the Winston-Salem community along side members of your class! .
Lighting of the Quad — Lighting of the Quad is time of holiday cheer and good tidings when the Wake Forest family can come together and celebrate the spirit and meaning of community. At Lighting of the Quad, students, faculty and staff will enjoy treats, an a capella concert, student and guest speakers and the lighting of the university tree, menorah and individual candles held by all in attendance.
Teacher Appreciation Week  
Angel Tree — Each December, the Office of Volunteer Services decorates a Christmas Tree with names of needy children in the Winston-Salem area. Each child and their Christmas wishes are listed on an ornament. Students, faculty and staff take ornaments off the tree and purchases presents for the children . These presents are delivered to the children just in time for the holidays! If you want to sponsor a child, look for the tree in front of the Benson food court in late November/early December.
