Stay Safe at Wingate

Fall 2021 at Wingate - many happy returns

Many happy returns — that’s what we’re looking forward to at Wingate … returning students, returning employees and returning to a more traditional learning and living experience.

We expect most classes to shift back to in-person, clubs to meet face to face and fans to fill the stands to cheer on the Bulldogs. As more members of our campus community are vaccinated and the threat of COVID recedes, we look forward to rolling out the welcome mat for a festive Family Weekend and hope to see more alumni than ever return for Homecoming.

Key to all these changes will be strong vaccination levels. To this end, we urge anyone headed to campus this fall to get vaccinated now. This will minimize risk and likely eliminate quarantine time for those in proximity of a confirmed case.

As always, the safety of our students and employees remains a top priority, and we’ll continue to follow CDC and NCHHS recommendations. As you plan for your happy return to Wingate or your first-time arrival, please mark your calendars with these important dates

  • New student move-in: Friday, Aug. 13 - Sunday, Aug. 15
  • Returning student move-in: Monday, Aug. 16 - Wednesday, Aug. 18 (student-athletes for fall sports will hear from coaches regarding early move-in dates.)
  • Convocation - Wednesday, Aug. 18
  • First day of undergraduate classes - Thursday, Aug. 19
  • Family Weekend - Sept. 10-11
  • Homecoming - Oct. 1-2
  • Fall sports schedules
