Commencement weekend is almost here, and we wanted to give our Deac families a way to be a part of all the action, whether you are here on campus or whether you want to follow along at home.
For those of you who use Twitter and will be on campus this weekend, we encourage you to tweet your Commencement experiences using the hashtag of #wfugrad. Our crack team of social media experts here will be pulling together tweets and adding them to a Storify series they are working on. And if you can’t be here – but want to see what Commencement is like – set your Twitter search for #wfugrad and you’ll get to see all relevant tweets.
There is initial coverage of Commencement on our social media web page, where they share pictures of graduates and their best memories of Wake Forest. It’s a really cute feature and you should check it out, Deac families.
There is also a link for a Commencement Live webcast for those of you who might want to watch the ceremony online.
Finally, if you have not discovered the new Quad Cam, you want to check it out and bookmark it. This is a new feature and will allow you to get a glimpse of the Quad (Hearn Plaza) any time. It will be especially fun to watch as the 10,000 chairs get set out and you see the amazing setup – and even more amazing fast takedown – of all the chairs and equipment.
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.
