The Wake Forest News Service will provide parking passes and media credentials to news organizations planning to cover activities associated with the inauguration of Nathan O. Hatch as Wake Forest's 13th president in October.

The News Service is contacting news media in North Carolina to offer parking passes. The News Service encourages news outlets to respond promptly to the offers. Journalists may contact the News Service directly if they have not been contacted. Please contact Priscilla Wood in the News Service at or 336-758-5237. The parking passes will be mailed to the media by the News Service.

The passes will be needed for parking on campus Oct. 19 and 20. Hatch will be installed as president in a Wait Chapel ceremony at 3 p.m. Oct. 20. Activities associated with the inauguration include two academic symposiums in Brendle Recital Hall on Oct. 19.

In addition, the News Service will provide media credentials for the installation ceremony. News media should pick up credentials when they arrive on campus for the ceremony. The News Service will set up a table in front of the University Post Office, near Wait Chapel, on Hearn Plaza (the Quad). Media will need the credentials to gain entry to the chapel.

The News Service does not plan to distribute credentials in advance. Special credentials will not be required to cover other inauguration-related events, but media should carry their own media organizations' credentials.

Journalists are encouraged to contact the News Service with any questions regarding media arrangements for activities associated with Hatch's inauguration.
