New Parents

Congratulations to parents and families of students enrolled via Early Decision into the Class of 2019!  We are eager to welcome your student to Wake Forest in August 2015!

Most of the communications for the Class of 2019 will come next spring, when the class is set.  Until then, we invite your family to begin getting involved with Wake Forest in the following ways.

So that we may begin including you on important communications from Wake Forest, please complete a Parent Record Form online at your earliest convenience.  Please be sure to include your email address on this form, as email is the primary means of communication with Wake Forest families.  Once we have your email, we will begin including you on our Wake Parents and Families email newsletter; see archives here.  (Note: if you are an alumnus/a, or have another student enrolled at Wake Forest, you do not need to submit a new Parent Record Form, as you are already in our system.  If you have a new address, email, job, etc. simply update any new or changed information via the Update Information Form.  This form is used for all alumni, parent and friends’ updates).

The Parents’ Page will be your portal for news and information especially for parents and family members.  We hope you will bookmark it and visit it often.

We have a Daily Deac parent blog, which is meant to give parent and families (and even admitted students) a glimpse of life on campus.  You can subscribe to the Daily Deac by following these instructions.  We also invite you to follow us on Facebook (Wake Forest Parents) and Twitter (WFUParents).

When is Family Weekend 2015?
The date is chosen after the football schedule is released, which is normally in late January, because Family Weekend is typically held during a home football game weekend.  It may take some days or weeks between the release of the football schedule and the selection of the Family Weekend date.  The University needs to research which weekends have adequate hotel space, when the NC Furniture Market is in session, and if there are other holidays or local events to consider.   As soon as that date is chosen, it will be published on the main Parents’ Page.  NOTE: due to television scheduling, we will not know the exact time of the football game until 10 days before Family Weekend.

Please feel free to contact the Parent Programs office at if you need additional information or assistance.

Welcome to Wake Forest!
