Alumni on Move-In Day:
Back to the Future

The "snake pit" is long gone, formal parlors for greeting suitors are passé and no one is expected to yell “Man on the hall!” But alumni who arrived last Friday to help their children move onto South Campus for freshman year could not have been more pleased about the positive qualities that endure at Wake Forest.

Lennis Pearcy Livesay (’81) and her husband, Greg (’82), helped daughter Caroline settle into Johnson. “We expect this to be her own, incredible, unique experience, but the fact that she will be living it on the campus that we have loved is almost like watching her walk through a dream,” said Lennis, who lived in Bostwick’s basement her first year. “I will be so happy if she has a wonderful four years so that the rest of her life she can close her eyes and be back at this point.”

Hers was a common sentiment you can read about here. If you are like me, a first-year veteran of Bostwick 2-A, you might wish you could start all over again.
