Class of 1998

Class of 1998,

Twenty years have passed quickly, and now Homecoming and Reunion Weekend 2017 will be here in a few months! We can’t wait to see all of our classmates back at Wake Forest! Come back the weekend of November 2 & 3 to celebrate our 20th reunion. 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 a campus-wide open house, trolley tours of campus and Party So Dear, a celebration featuring The Pointer Sisters under the big tent on Mag Quad. Then Friday night we will gather as a class in the Magnolia Room to celebrate 20 great years. On Saturday, enjoy the Festival on the Quad, the Alumni Tailgate and the WFU/Syracuse football game to name a few highlights.

We’ve surpassed our $100,000 class goal for reunion-year gifts to The Wake Forest Fund, but let’s keep the momentum going. If you haven’t made your gift yet, please do soon! The campaign started July 1, 2017, and will continue through Homecoming Weekend.

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

Go Deacs!
