Wake Forest University will be closed to through traffic for its commencement ceremony Monday, May 15, from 5:30 a.m. until the ceremony ends around noon. Pulitzer Prize-winning author and presidential historian Jon Meacham will deliver Wake Forest University’s 2017 commencement address to nearly 1,900 graduates.
Commencement parking passes and commencement tickets are required to enter campus and attend the event. Passes and tickets are reserved for graduates and their guests. Those without commencement parking passes will not be allowed to enter campus. A livestream of the ceremony will be available at go.wfu.edu/wfu17.
