Update on faculty, staff tickets for baseball games

Because of the high demand for Demon Deacons baseball tickets, Athletics has had to re-evaluate its policies. Faculty and staff still can claim complimentary single-game tickets for themselves and their immediate family members with their WFU ID at the Couch Ballpark ticket office on the day of the game (90 minutes before the first pitch). However, the number of complimentary tickets is now capped at four per ID.

With multiple sellouts expected this season, general admission seating will be limited and tickets will be based on availability. Faculty and staff who would like to guarantee a general admission seat at every home game are encouraged to purchase season tickets by clicking here. Information about faculty and staff access to all athletic events is available here.

WFU Press publishes two books by award-winning Belfast poet Stephen Sexton

Wake Forest University Press author Stephen Sexton

“If All the World and Love Were Young,” originally published in the UK by Penguin in 2019, was hailed by The Times as “a debut fit to compare with Seamus Heaney.” It went on to win the Forward Prize for Best First Collection, as well as the Rooney Prize for Irish Literature and the E. M. Forster Award.

“Cheryl’s Destinies,” also published by Penguin, followed in 2021, further establishing Sexton’s reputation as one of the most exciting voices of his generation. “You won’t have read poetry like this,” wrote Elaine Feeney. “He is a rare talent.” It was shortlisted for the Forward Prize for Best Collection and named among the best books of the year by The Financial Times, The Irish Times, and The Telegraph. Wake Forest University Press is proud to reissue both titles in North America.
