Information for P’17 – families of recent graduates

The following information was provided by the Office of Personal and Career Development.


To parents and families of the Class of 2017:

Congratulations on your student’s recent graduation from Wake Forest! As our alumni navigate their personal and professional lives after Wake, the Alumni Personal & Career Development Center is here to provide resources and support! Check out the following options for our alumni to stay connected with us in the years ahead:

  • Visit our newly redesigned Alumni Personal & Career Development Center website. Access alumni stories, expert advice, job search tools, WF networks, and more.
  • Subscribe to our e-newsletter, Beyond the Forest. Get exclusive stories, videos, resources, and information about upcoming programs and events from the Alumni Personal & Career Development Center. See a special preview of our most recent e-newsletter here! (link to archive page of enewsletter online)
  • Update your current contact information with the Office of Alumni Engagement. Stay connected with your local WAKECommunity about upcoming events in your area.

Please encourage your student to complete the First Destination Survey to let us know their post-graduation plans. Even if your son or daughter has yet to finalize location or employment plans, providing us with an updated email address will keep him or her in the loop! Upon completion of this survey, they will receive additional information from us about the Alumni Personal & Career Development Center. We look forward to coming alongside our alumni as they work, build their lives, and navigate what comes next in the post-Wake Forest journey.

Go Deacs!

If Your Student Has a Problem

One of the best ways parents/families can help their students is to let them solve their own problems. Use the Stop, Drop, and Roll method when your student contacts you with a problem.  The flyer also lists contact information for serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
