The Student Life Committee will review all applications. Each organization will be assessed on 1) past contributions to the academic, intellectual, cultural and social purposes of the Wake Forest University community 2) plan for future contributions and 3) understanding and utilization of the Campus Life Strategic Directions. The successful organization(s) will work with the Office of Residence Life and Housing to develop plans for 1) moving into the space 2) customizing the space and 3) understanding facilities obligations and usage. All allocated lounge spaces and the assigned student organizations are subject to periodic inspections of the space(s) as well as the Triennial Review/Expectations for Excellence processes.

To better view the space, an open house for the lounge will be held in mid-September. Please look for an additional announcement about that in the upcoming week.
