About University Events

The University Events team creates and produces events to support the mission of Wake Forest University. The primary objective of University Events is for each event to reflect positively on Wake Forest. To attain this objective, our team of professionals provides the guidance, tools, and resources to make every Wake Forest event a success.

Some events and services are not managed by University Events including summer conferences, scheduling a wedding or reserving an athletic venue.
