New Student Receptions

This website pertains to New Student Receptions held in the Summer of 2014 for the entering freshman Class of 2018.  Information about New Student Receptions for the Summer of 2015 will be available in mid- to late-May 2015.

During the summer, New Student Receptions will be held across the country so parents and students can meet other incoming students and families. At these receptions, you will also meet current Wake Forest students and staff and have an opportunity to ask questions of the experts.

Receptions are typically held from late June through early August. You may attend the reception that is most convenient, whether it is in your hometown or elsewhere (pre-registration is required in order to have an accurate count of attendees).

Note: we typically send invitation emails to students who live within a reasonable driving distance of the event.  However, your family does not need to receive a formal invitation to register or attend!  We send email invitations to a small radius because we don’t want students or families to feel like attendance is required.  We welcome your family to attend any reception!

Dates and sites are subject to change, and registration may be closed at a reception if we reach maximum capacity.
