Why Wake Forest?
As the nation’s premier collegiate university, we offer the personal attention of a liberal arts college with the resources of a large research institution. We invite you to learn more about our campus community — intellectually curious people who value the life of the mind, strong character and authenticity.
The Wake Forest campus is a place of teachers and students, philosophers and scientists, artists and athletes, debaters and dancers. We are a community of communities.
Because of the size of the campus and the strong connections among schools and departments, students have access to a network of peers, faculty and administrators for a college experience that is fulfilling in all respects. Curricular and co-curricular opportunities abound.
Get lost in the things that inspire you. Let us show you how a Wake Forest education can turn who you are into what you’ll be.
