Welcome Back!

Event Overview

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 Party So Dear beginning at 4:30 p.m. Then Friday night we will gather on campus in the Reunion Party Village for our class party to celebrate 45 great years. On Saturday, enjoy the Festival on the Quad and Campus Open House, the Alumni Tailgate and the WFU/Ole Miss football game to name a few highlights. Game tickets will be available alter this summer directly through the ticket office. (336)758-3322, More plans for the weekend are being finalized, so check back for updates. 

We are making progress toward our class goal for reunion-year gifts to The Wake Forest Fund but would love for at least 30% of the class to join together for Deacs helping Deacs. If you haven’t made your gift yet, please do soon!  The campaign started July 1, 2023 and will continue through Homecoming Weekend. 

We hope you’ll make plans to join us for a memorable weekend!  Contact your friends, make your hotel reservations, and keep checking this website and WFU Class of 1979 Facebook page for more information as the weekend gets closer.  We’ll see you September 13-15!
