Homecoming was this past weekend, and there are a number of great photo albums online so you can see the events of the weekend. Wake Forest alumni are very loyal and they come back for a great weekend of reunion class events (for all classes celebrating a 5th reunion all the way up to the 50th reunion!), the Festival on the Quad, pregame tailgate, football game and more. Wake Forest also likes to make Homecoming a family affair, with activities for kids as well as alumni. There are some great pictures online, so check them out.
It is a rainy day on campus, and students are finishing the last of their papers and/or exams and getting ready for Fall Break this weekend. If your student is going home to see you, expect they will do a lot of eating and sleeping. If they are headed to a roommate’s or friend’s house, don’t be surprised if they call you at the end of the weekend, a bit homesick for their own family and their own house – particularly if they are first year students.
The Office of Family Engagement provides information and support to Wake Forest parents, guardians, grandparents, and family members. The office maintains the Family Engagement Page of the Wake Forest website, which is the primary vehicle of communication with families, as well as our Facebook and Twitter presence.
