Go Bowling with us at the Belk Bowl!

Wondering what to do for some post-Christmas fun? Go to the Belk Bowl in Charlotte to watch our Deacs take on the Aggies of Texas A&M.  Wake Forest’s Office of Alumni Engagement is sponsoring a bunch of activities around the Belk Bowl. Don’t let the word “alumni” deter you – these events are open to all, and we’d love to have a strong showing with parents and families and members of the Daily Deacdom there.

Details about the events and information on how to register is below.
