Reasons to attend and to not attend Wake Forest University
- “The relationships you can develop with professors. There are many, many opportunities to get to know professors, maybe better than you wanted to get to know them.”
- “The resources Wake has. If a student seeks it out, there are different faculty or different services that will try to help maximize the student’s experience. It is the perfect spot for students that want to take advantage of resources, have deep, meaningful relationships with faculty, and really dive into their education and take ownership of it.”
- “If you’re very service oriented, the school is very service oriented. That was something that I was really attracted to in Wake Forest.”
- “It’s great that we have a small environment but we are in the ACC and have big sports teams. Being in that conference brings up the morale of the campus.”
- “If you really like studying abroad, Wake Forest is really great. The study abroad office is amazing and a lot of people go abroad their fall semester of junior year. They’re really good about finding the right program for you.” [In the 2015-2016 academic year, 63% of students received credit for studying abroad.]
To Not Attend
- “If you really don’t like Greek life, do not come to Wake Forest. I know someone who transferred who loved the school but Greek life was too much.”
- “It’s a very small community where everyone knows everyone, so if you would rather have a bigger school, don’t come. It feels big at first, but shrinks as you get older.”
- “It’s very much a bubble campus where most things happen on campus, so prepare for that.”
- “The city is not a reason to come here. It’s not a great place to hang out.”
- “As a business student, business school students have a lot of classes to take. Within a certain amount of credit hours, it’s hard to take other classes after your core requirements are done. That’s something I wish I had more room for in my schedule.”
