Today is Commencement, and because this is an all-hands-on-deck event, the Parent Programs office is at the ceremony this morning working. For those of you who cannot attend but wish to see a broadcast of the ceremony via internet live feed, those should be accessible either from the main Wake Forest home page or the Commencement page.
Due to the wonders of blog software and the ability to pre-load a post, we’re going to show you some of our favorite pictures from last year’s Commencement today – and then we’ll give you the recap of the event in tomorrow’s Daily Deac. These pictures represent some fun moments – from proud family members cheering during the ceremony and posing together afterwards, to students sharing hugs and moments together, to a gnome. Yes, you read that right. One of last year’s graduates had his gnome, Tom, with him for the ceremony. Our students are the best.
Congratulations to the Class of 2012, and to their loving and proud families who shared in the special day!
The Office of Family Engagement provides information and support to Wake Forest parents, guardians, grandparents, and family members.
