"The bubble" offers its share of good times, but more options are coming in the city.

'Town and Gown' links grow stronger

If you're like me, you might have been an undergraduate who referred to Wake Forest as "the bubble." Everything you needed was at hand unless you made occasional trips for nachos at Los Amigos, a dance or two at TOG, a formal at Benton Convention Center or Sunday night spaghetti at the Rose and Thistle. Town and gown hardly felt connected. That's not the case today. Students seek out meaningful experiences beyond the bubble, not only in semester-abroad programs but also in the heart of Winston-Salem.

A number of new ventures in refurbished spaces will support those efforts, connecting the campus more intentionally with city life. Provost Rogan Kersh ('86) says the transformation of these buildings will create ideal settings for education and community gathering spaces alike. From Brookstown to Reynolda Road to the Innovation Quarter, students will have more choices for engaging with community. Read more about the promising settings and the potential for strengthening connections.

Best wishes,

Maria Henson
