Common came to Wake Forest on Feb 25, 2011 to speak about "Greatness!" He kicked off the evening with a freestyle about Wake, and then spoke to the masses about finding your path, believing in your path, and living your path.

Indigenous Healing Garden Dedication
As part of Earth Day celebrations and recognition on April 22, 2010, we helped host a dedication for the new Indigenous Healing Garden. Facilities Services transformed what was a storm water run-off into a beautiful and serene garden at the intersection of Wingate and Faculty Drive. It is one of the most biologically diverse plots of land on our campus, and models our ability to approach challenges as opportunities to achieve greater sustainability and environmental harmony.
