Deacons to DC (and a few stops in between)

The Daily Deac is taking a break from its normal campus life coverage because we are trying to help DC area families learn about a special opportunity for Thanksgiving travel home.  One of our Deac Moms in the area has been gracious enough to volunteer to research and spearhead a charter bus for interested students to travel home for Thanksgiving.  And while it is being fully planned and organized by this parent, we wanted to help her spread the word.  So if your family is from the DC, Richmond, or Fredericksburg area, please take note and follow the instructions below to be in touch with her directly to sign up.


Take a charter bus to travel home from Wake Forest and back to school for the Thanksgiving holiday!

  • The bus will leave directly from campus
  • Meet at 8:30 am on Wednesday November 27th at the side of Benson University Center in C Lot for a prompt 9 am departure.
  • Stops for drop offs at:
  •  Vienna Metro Station (North side) outside of Washington, DC (about 3 pm)
  • The total driving time should be under 6 hours.
  • The return trip will begin at the Vienna Metro Station on Sunday, December 1st.  Students must meet for boarding at 12:00 (noon); the bus will depart at 12:15 pm.
  • Departing from the Spotsylvania Towne Center by 1:30
  • Departing from the Hungarybrook Shopping Center by 2:30
  • Arriving at Wake Forest University about 6 pm
  • Minimum of 30 students must register to reserve the bus, otherwise your money will be refunded.
  • Maximum of 54 students, so sign up quickly!  If the bus is full, you can register on the wait-list in case we have enough students to charter a second bus.
  • The cost for the bus is $158 round trip which includes all taxes and processing fees.
