Innovation Quarter has sparked a revitalization of downtown.

EDITORS' PICKS

Historic move downtown

The buzz this month concerned an announcement that the University plans to offer some undergraduate programs alongside scientific and clinical graduate programs in the Wake Forest Innovation Quarter. The plan has not received final approval and many details remain to be addressed, but suffice to say it would be historic for the Reynolda Campus to offer undergraduate classes downtown.

For those of you who have not been downtown in the last decade, you would be amazed to see the revitalization of Winston-Salem. New restaurants, shops and festivals abound; and residents are living in lofts in former factories. The Innovation Quarter sits on what was once a cigarette-manufacturing complex owned by R.J. Reynolds. It is a hub for biomedical science and information technology and, by next summer, a medical education building for the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. Here's the announcement. Stay tuned.

Best wishes,

Maria Henson
