As one chapter closes for the Class of 2024, another opens for our continuing and incoming students. This month, we celebrate our graduating Deacs and turn our attention to key dates for those returning and those coming home to Wake Forest for the first time. 

We want to take the time to congratulate the Class of 2024! For those of you with a student graduating, please know that you and your Deac will always have a home away from home here on campus. 

Of impressive members of the Class of 2024, we want to give special thanks and congratulations to our graduating RA’s and Graduate Staff. We are deeply grateful for their commitment to our communities and the residential experience of our students.
