Homecoming Activities with Chemists in mind (2018)


Homecoming 2018 – Schedule of Events

Friday November 2

3-4:30PM  Career Event (Salem 2nd floor) – Alumni talk (individually or in small groups) with small groups of students for 10-15 minutes before student groups shift to other alumni – not unlike speed dating.   Alum who would like to participate should contact Al Rives (’76)  rivesab@wfu.edu.

4:30-7:30PM Party-So-Dear on the Magnolia Quad – This is a university-wide event featuring the Pointer Sisters.  We will try to have a well-marked spot for Chemistry alums to stop in.

Saturday November 3

9:00-10AM Friends of Chemistry General Meeting (Salem Hall 202) FoC Chair, Bill Batten, will recap the year’s activities and also announce the recipients of this year’s Young Alumni and Distinguished Alumni Awards [The deadline for nominations in October 19; so, if you have a nominee in mind, go ahead and submit a nomination.]

10:00-10:45AM  Deacon Demo show XI.  (Winston 126) Faculty and students from Biology Chemistry and Physics will amaze and entertain you with science demonstrations with a Wake Forest twist.  This is appropriate for all ages and even all majors.  We may throw some barbs Syracuse’s way, so if you happen to bring  any Orange fans with you, they may need to be good-spirited.

-until ~ noon  Alumni Reception (Winston lobby)  We’ll fill the Winston lobby with science alumni, family, friends, and faculty.  Reconnect, have fun – it’s as simple as that.

During the reception – Tours of newly renovated Salem Hall.  You won’t recognize the place (well, maybe a little…but only a little). Check in at the reception in Winston lobby – we’ll take you from there.
