Golden autumn days

Ken Bennett's photograph of the full moon during the lunar eclipse on Oct. 8 could serve as a galactic exclamation point for this, one of my favorite times of the year at Wake Forest. Think back to your days here — to that first splash of yellow on the trees, the crisp fall air at football games, the tailgates where a steaming drink is appreciated (finally) after those other games that brought sunburns and sweat; and, above all, remember the campus traditions. October. Is there a better time at Wake Forest?

On the last day of an exceptionally fine month, you'll be happy to know our traditions are intact. More than 1,000 members of our community clocked more than 24,500 laps around the Quad. Here's to Hit the Bricks, still going strong for cancer research, still honoring Brian Piccolo ('65, P '87, '89). Check out the highlights.

Best wishes,
