MaryBeth Magee Smiley (’89), Lynks Society
Sandra Mills Barker (’80), S.O.P.H. Society

The brunch provided a social setting for Wake Forest alumnae to reconnect with society/sorority sisters who live in their community. It was also an opportunity for women of all societies/sororities to once again proudly wear their colors and badges!
Looking to host a function like this in your local area? This event typically attracts ladies who graduated prior to the 1990s, so it is a great way to reach out to an oft-neglected demographic of alumnae. Wake Forest has a unique heritage and tradition of societies vs. sororities prior to the early 90’s which is to be remembered and celebrated.
The Office of Alumni Engagement’s mission is to find exciting new ways to connect Wake Forest alumni, friends and family. Once a Deac, always a Deac – and we’re here for you. Each day we leap out of bed humming the fight song, ready to create the moments that keep the spirit of Wake Forest present in your world.
