Reynolda Hall, Homecoming & Reunion Weekend

Welcome Back!

The Class 1974 will celebrate our 50th Reunion September 13-15. Mark your calendars and make plans to come back and celebrate where it all began! We can’t wait to see you there!

Event Overview

Homecoming Weekend is going to be bigger and better than ever before, so be sure to make plans to be in town by late morning on Friday for the the Golden Deacs Luncheon where we will receive our 50 year pins. That afternoon join the fun on Mag Quad at Party So Dear from 4:30 – 7:00 p.m. From there we will move to our class dinner to celebrate 50 years. This will be a special time together, just for our class.

On Saturday, enjoy the Festival on the Quad and Campus Open House, the Alumni Tailgate and the WFU vs. Ole Miss football game to name a few highlights. 

Game tickets will be available directly through the ticket office later this summer by calling (336)758-3322 or online at . More exciting 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. If you haven’t made your gift yet, please do soon! The campaign started July 1, 2023 and will continue through Homecoming Weekend. Check out our progress below!

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 1974 Facebook page for more information as the weekend gets closer.  We’ll see you September 13-15!
