President’s Welcome

Wake Forest President Nathan O. HatchCommencement is an exciting time in the life of every college or university, and I am eager to celebrate this special weekend with you. I hope that your student’s years at Wake Forest will culminate with a memorable Commencement weekend as family, friends and faculty members share in our students’ considerable academic accomplishments.

In keeping with Wake Forest tradition, many academic departments are hosting receptions on the Sunday afternoon of Commencement weekend. The Wake Forest faculty is the heart of the University, and I hope you will attend the reception sponsored by your son’s or daughter’s major area to meet some of these outstanding teacher-scholars.

Tickets are required for many of the weekend’s events. I encourage you to register and make travel arrangements early. I look forward to celebrating this milestone with you in May.
