Class of 1961

Class of 1961,

Five more years have come and gone and it’s time to celebrate our 55th Wake Forest class reunion October 28-29 during Homecoming and Reunion Weekend. The festivities will begin on Friday morning with Half Century Club events. Please come and reconnect with classmates and enjoy lunch in the Benson University Center. During the afternoon, enjoy Back-to-the-Classroom sessions, a campus-wide open house, and Mother So Dear Party of Mag Quad from 4- 7 p.m. featuring live music.  Come straight from the party to our class dinner in the brand new McCreary Field House where we will enjoy a tour of the country’s premier indoor practice facility, drinks and a casual dinner with friends.  On Saturday, we will enjoy the Festival on the Quad, tailgate and football game against Army. More details will be sent this summer, but we hope you will mark your calendar for this fun event.

We’ll look forward to seeing you in October!
