Family Weekend – September 22-24

Family Weekend Weather Update

The US Weather Service is predicting rain in the forecast late in the night on Friday, September 27th into the morning and afternoon of Saturday, September 28th. All Family Weekend activities for Saturday are continuing as planned. Tailgating activities will also continue as planned. In case of lightning, fans will be directed to seek shelter on the concourse of  Allegacy Stadium or in the Wake Forest Indoor Tennis Center across the street from the tailgate area. We also advise wearing proper outerwear and footwear to account for the inclement weather.
