The countdown is on for the arrival of the Class of 2018, and everyone is getting really excited.  And our good friends who work with social media on campus have a fantastic way for you to share in the excitement and be part of the conversation.

Many of our incoming students have long been using the hashtag #WFU18 to tag their tweets, Facebook posts, Instagram pictures, and more.  We invite you to do so as well – so if you want to make a post on your social media of choice, tag it with #WFU18 and it will become part of the digital welcome wagon.

You can post a throwback picture of your Deac’s move-in (or your own, for those of you who are alumni parents).

Or you can post a piece of advice about beginning their time at WFU.

Or even just a warm Wake Forest welcome to the new Deacons and families.

And this is the cool part – you can also track what’s been tagged with #WFU18 in one convenient place – Tagboard.  Our social media gurus are combing through the various tags and adding some of them to this Tagboard compilation.

For those who will be moving their Deacs in the week of August 21st, we hope you’ll share some pictures, tweets, and status updates about your experience.  Tag them all with #WFU18 and your posts might end up on Tagboard too!

As I am fond of saying, there is no family quite like the Wake Forest family.  So help us relive fond memories of move-in, preview great things to come for our newest Deacs and parents, and/or let them know you’re happy they’re part of the family by joining in and tagging with #WFU18.

Have a great weekend, Deac families!  And bonus points to all of you who are representing Black and Gold Friday by wearing our school colors!
