Wake Forest alumni are ready for the Fall! We know alumni will be sporting black and gold in their hometowns to cheer on the Deacs at game watches on Saturdays, but can’t wait for them to get together for some other unique events. Check out the highlighted events below to see what’s happening around the country. Check your club page for full details.
Charlotte, NC Election 2012: What Matters in Presidential Elections? Tuesday, August 28, 6 p.m. at the Wake Forest Charlotte Center, 200 N. College St., Suite 150.
Join us for an evening with Katy Harriger, department chair and professor of political science. Harriger will discuss various factors that will have an impact on voters’ decision making in November, including the role of the conventions, the debates, swing states, the state of the economy, the electoral college, and perceptions of the candidates. She’ll offer the best and worst case scenarios for both sides, but she will not predict a winner! Food and drinks will be served. Register now.
