Class of 1997,
Twenty years have passed quickly, and now Homecoming and Reunion Weekend 2017 will be here in a few months! We can’t wait to see all of our classmates back at Wake Forest! Come back the weekend of September 15-16 to celebrate our 20th reunion. Homecoming Weekend is going to be bigger and better than ever before, so be sure to make plans to be in town Friday afternoon for a campus wide open house and and Party So Dear, a celebration under the big tent on Mag Quad. Then Friday night we will gather as a class on campus to celebrate 20 great years. On Saturday, enjoy the Festival on the Quad, campus tours, the tailgate and the WFU/Utah State football game to name a few highlights. More exciting plans for the weekend are being finalized, so check back for updates.
We’re already making great progress toward our $175,000 class goal for reunion-year gifts to The Wake Forest Fund. If you haven’t made your gift yet, please do soon! The campaign started July 1, 2016 and will continue through Homecoming Weekend.
We hope you’ll make plans to join us for a memorable weekend! Registration will open later this summer, but in the meantime, contact your friends, make your reservations, and keep checking this website and our class Facebook page for more information as the weekend gets closer. We’ll see you September 15-16!
