I am one of the co-chairs of the WFU Senior Sendoff this year, along with Stephanie Hom (’15). I am excited to be a part of the planning of a special event that is being created this year to celebrate the graduating class at the Winston-Salem Dash Stadium on April 22 at 7 PM. In the past, the Department of Campus Life has partnered with the Office of Alumni Engagement to do a Senior Dinner. This year, that event has been re-imagined by a committee of students and staff and is truly going to be better than ever.

Members of the Class of 2015 will enjoy free food, beer & wine, fireworks, dancing from a live band and DJ, a class photo, as well as a short speech to be shared by a selected senior.  Please encourage any seniors you know to submit a Senior Toast.  This is meant to be a thoughtful reflection of the student’s last four years, and will be delivered to the entire class prior to the fireworks show.

Additionally, we will have a senior slideshow playing on the stadium screens throughout the evening. We invite seniors to share their “Top 10″ photos highlighting their last four years by emailing We know that the Class of 2015 has had some noteworthy moments during their time at Wake Forest, so we would love to see some of these in the slideshow.

Seniors need to RSVP for this event to reserve their senior gift. 

Senior Sendoff is a wonderful opportunity for seniors to celebrate their accomplishments.  We hope to see all of the Class of 2015 there!
