Class of 1962

Five more years have come and gone and it’s time to celebrate our 55th Wake Forest class reunion September 15-16 during Homecoming and Reunion Weekend. On Friday morning we will enjoy the Golden Deacs Events which will begin two days of not-to-be-missed events. This year’s Homecoming and Reunion Weekend promises to be bigger and better than ever. If you are interested in seeing all the new additions to campus as well as Wake Downtown please be sure to sign up for the Golden Deacs bus tour. From 4:30 – 7:00 put your dancing shoes on and come to the big tent on Mag Quad to enjoy Party So Dear and The Four Tops!

After enjoying Party So Dear on Mag Quad we will head over to the beautiful new Bistro ‘34 in the North Dining Hall (behind Wait Chapel near the Spry Soccer Stadium) to reminisce about our Wake Forest Days with friends. Enjoy drinks and dinner in the dining room and out on the patio during this casual fun evening.

On Saturday, we will enjoy the Festival on the Quad, tailgate and football game against Utah State. More details will be sent this summer, but we hope you will mark your calendar for this fun weekend.

We’ll look forward to seeing you in September!
