With inclement weather potentially in the forecast on Monday, May 21, Wake Forest University commencement organizers encourage graduates and their families to pay special attention to the severe weather plan.
University leaders will continue to monitor conditions and will make every attempt to hold the commencement ceremony outside on Hearn Plaza. In the event of some rain, commencement exercises may still continue outdoors. Ponchos will be available for graduates, but guests are encouraged to bring their own rain gear and plan accordingly.
If weather predictions suggest a threat to safety or conditions that prevent us from holding commencement outside, the University will announce a move to the Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum on Sunday evening. Additional information is included in the severe weather plan.

To contact the Office of Family Engagement, please visit our contact page.
One of the best ways parents/families can help their students is to let them solve their own problems. Use the Stop, Drop, and Roll method when your student contacts you with a problem. The flyer also lists contact information for serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
Select slide shows from Orientation sessions are available online.
The Office of Family Engagement provides information and support to Wake Forest parents, guardians, grandparents, and family members. The office maintains the Family Engagement Page of the Wake Forest website, which is the primary vehicle of communication with families, as well as our Facebook and Twitter presence.
