This is a guest post from Offices of the Provost and the Dean of the College:
The Offices of the Provost and the Dean of the College invite the Wake Forest Community to attend this year’s Senior Colloquium, which will be held on Sunday, February 14 at 4 p.m., at the Porter B. Byrum Welcome Center. During this event, the top 10 orators will share their profound and diverse reflections about their Wake Forest experience. Three orations will be chosen to be presented at Founders’ Day Convocation on February 18. Of those three, one orator will be selected to present at the Honors and Awards Service for graduating seniors, their families and friends on May 15.
Senior Colloquium is a long-standing Wake Forest tradition, dating back to the earliest years of the College, when debate and oratory were promoted at all special occasions. Each year since the re-opening of the College in 1868, following the Civil War, many of our finest seniors have prepared essays, some of which have been presented at special gatherings of the University and the broader community.
