Celebrating 50 Years in Venice

Global Programs will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Casa Artom with a return to Wake Forest’s home in Venice. Alumni and their families are invited to gather for a one-of-a-kind reunion in May 2023. More than 2,000 Wake Forest alumni called Casa Artom “home” for a summer, semester or short-term program, and the bond participating alumni, faculty and staff share spans five decades.

Study abroad is an integral part of Wake Forest’s holistic educational model because global learning experiences significantly impact intellectual, personal and professional growth. In Venice, Wake Forest University has been privileged to offer a range of engaged cultural learning experiences at Casa Artom, a historic site that formerly housed the American consulate. Since Wake Forest acquired Casa Artom in 1971 as its first overseas residence, the University has secured residences in Vienna and London, established the Center for Global Programs and Studies, and broadened the scope of University-sponsored and affiliate programs.

You’re invited! Join us for the Return to Casa Artom May 18-20, 2023.
