Wake Forest Founders Day

Each year the University marks its founding in February 1834 by coming together to celebrate and reflect on our traditions, our history and our people. Founders Day is also a moment to affirm the University’s motto – Pro Humanitate. This year’s program featured the annual senior oration, musical selections, a celebration of Wake Forest milestones, and reflections from Vice President for Campus Life Shea Kidd Brown on the distinctive values that inspired our founding and continue to shape our vision for the future. President Susan R. Wente also provided remarks.

This year’s ceremony was held on February 15, 2024 in Wait Chapel.
