Birth Letters

Did you know we send letters to your children, welcoming them into the Wake Forest family? Update your information and let us know when you’ve brought a new child into your family. We will gladly back-date as well – so let us know if your 16-year-old needs a birth letter!


Darling Deacons

We regularly feature “darling deacons” here on Alumni, So Dear. It’s a chance for alumni parents to share with the Wake Forest community pictures of their children in all of their Black & Gold gear. We’re happy for alumni to take a walk down memory lane and send in any childhood Wake Forest photos of themselves, too. Submit your photos here.


Alumni Admissions Forum

Annual event for alumni and their children co-hosted by the Offices of Alumni Engagement and Undergraduate Admissions. While we hope your child is considering Wake Forest, the Alumni Admissions Forum will provide insight into college admissions in general. The Office of Undergraduate Admissions will take you step-by-step through the college search process, focusing on finding the right college, writing winning essays, completing applications and financing a college education. Additionally, there will be opportunities to experience the Wake Forest campus and visit with fellow alumni families.

Upcoming dates: June 23, 2017 and November 17, 2017.
