Don’t Mistake His Old Age For Weakness.

The Deacon has been dominating opponents in one of the nation’s premier athletic conferences for years.

As the smallest school in the Atlantic Coast Conference, Wake Forest continually proves that it’s not the size of the school in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the school. With national championships, ACC regular season titles and tournament championships, NCAA basketball tournament appearances, bowl games and a signature ACC football championship in 2006, Wake Forest University competes — and wins — at the highest level of collegiate athletics.

With the full support of the legendary Screamin’ Demons and the entire Wake Forest community wearing their black and gold, Demon Deacon athletic events are something you don’t want to miss. And much like our loyal fans, your voice will also return.

What Does It Mean To Roll The Quad?

After big athletic wins, Wake Forest students gather on the Quad (Hearn Plaza) to throw rolls of toilet paper over the trees. For Demon Deacons, there is not a more beautiful sight! Learn the perfect technique by visiting newstudents.wfu.edu/how-to-be-a-deacon/rolling-the-quad.
