40th Reunion for the Class of 1982

Welcome Back!

The Class of 1982 will celebrate our 40th reunion September 16-18 and we can’t wait to see everyone. Mark your calendars and make plans to be back for this milestone event. 

Event Overview

Friday afternoon from 4:30-7:00 p.m., put your dancing shoes on and join us under the big tent to hear Kool and the Gang for Party So Dear on Manchester Plaza (Mag Quad) to enjoy a party for all alumni.

From 7:30 – 10:30 p.m. will be our 40th Reunion celebration in the Reunion  Party Village on Poteat Field where we’ll get to see friends in our class while other classes celebrate nearby.

On Saturday, we will enjoy the Festival on the Quad, the Alumni Tailgate, and the WFU/Liberty football game. Football tickets will be sold directly through the ticket office beginning June 1. Registration for all other events will be open in July.

Since almost all of the events will be outdoors, please plan to dress for the weather. Keep checking this website for updated information as the weekend gets closer.

We look forward to seeing each of you for this memorable event!

Go Deacs!

Class of 1982 Reunion Campaign

For the Class of 1982, we have surpassed our $225,000 dollar goal, but  we need the class to pull together to reach the 160 donor goal for reunion-year gifts to The Wake Forest Fund. (We are lagging behind!)  If you haven’t made your gift yet, please do soon! The campaign started July 1, 2021, and will continue through Homecoming Weekend.   


$318,411 of $225,000
