Getting excited for your arrival on campus? Your Wake Forest experience will start with New Student Orientation on August 22. Our Orientation program is designed to help you with your transition into our Wake Forest family. You will become acquainted with campus, meet fellow classmates, faculty, and staff, and learn more about the beloved community you will soon be calling home.

The five days prior to the start of classes will be full of exciting academic and social events. You will have the opportunity to bond with members of your residence hall, learn about our rich history and traditions, connect with your adviser, cheer on our men’s soccer team, meet President Hatch and Provost Kersh, attend Convocation to officially celebrate joining our family, and spend time with new friends on the Quad.

Take advantage of all of the events, have fun, and make the most of your time during Orientation.  It’s a great way to kick-off an enriching and rewarding journey as a Demon Deacon. We hope you are as excited as we are, and we look forward to seeing you on campus in August.
