Class of 1988

Thirty years have passed quickly, and now our class reunion will be here in a few short months! Come back November 2 & 3 for a Homecoming and Reunion Weekend that is going to be bigger and better than ever before! Our main class party will be on Friday night, but be sure to make plans to be in town Friday afternoon for a campus wide Party So Dear, (a celebration featuring The Pointer Sisters under the big tent on Mag Quad). After enjoying Party So Dear, we’ll stay on campus, but head to our class party to reminisce about our Wake Forest Days over a delicious spread of Southern and local Winston-Salem favorites. In addition to the southern-style menu, an open beer and wine bar featuring local craft beer will be available throughout the evening. The entire weekend is casual attire or whatever makes you feel fun and festive!

On Saturday, enjoy the Festival on the Quad, campus tours, the tailgate and the WFU/Syracuse football game. More exciting plans for the weekend are being finalized, so check back for updates.

A huge thank you to everyone who has contributed to our class campaign.  Over the summer we not only achieved our participation goal, but we surpassed our dollar goal!  Of course, we will still be counting through Homecoming Weekend, so if you haven’t made your gift to the Wake Forest Fund in honor of our class, please do soon!

We hope you’ll make plans to join us for a memorable weekend! Registration will open soon, but in the meantime, contact your friends, make your reservations, and keep checking this website for more information as the weekend gets closer. Join our class facebook group and post pictures and messages for classmates. We’ll see you November 2 & 3!
