May 2021 Parent/Family Updates

As Move-Out draws to a close for the semester, we want to say congratulations! Both you and your student navigated a year full of unique challenges and concerns, and we are grateful for your partnership and feedback while navigating what a residential experience looked like alongside COVID-19 considerations.

We particularly want to take time to congratulate the Class of 2021! For those of you with students who are graduating, we hope you know that both you and your Deac will always have a home away from home here in Winston Salem. 

Of the Class of ‘21, we want to give a special thanks and congratulations to all of our graduating RA’s and Graduate Hall Director. See a full list of #TeamRLH graduates here.
