Coming Back to the Old Campus

This year’s Old Campus Trek, scheduled for Saturday, April 8th, promises a full schedule of fun-filled activities and forums for students and alumni from the old and new campuses of Wake Forest University.

The morning begins at 9:30 am with a casual coffee and social period, followed by a morning program. Guests also will receive guided tours of North Main Street (previously known as Faculty Avenue) and the Old Campus. A picnic lunch will be served on the museum grounds, after which WFU students will lead a panel discussion about life at Wake Forest College featuring alumni of the Old Campus.

Advance registration is required. Please contact the WFU Alumni Office at 336-758-4278 or visit the Alumni Office HERE. For additional information, call the museum directly at 919-556-2911 or email Executive Director Ed Morris at morrisce@wfu.edu.
