Special Collections & Archives (ZSR Library) has continued expanding the University Timeline for the history of Wake Forest. Timeline entries are drawn from numerous historical sources with the hope of providing a unique window into the past.

Major timeline categories include athletics, departments and programs, diversity, “firsts”, international, student life, and traditions, among others, which are also searchable. The top hundred selected entries appear automatically, and users can easily download the remainder. In addition, the timeline is organized by date, also searchable, beginning in 1830.

The timeline is continually being added to and revised, so if you would like to submit an important event or individual from WFU’s past for consideration, please let us know at archives@wfu.edu.
