New Student Receptions

New Student Reception group photoDuring 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.  See the typical flow of a New Student Reception.

Receptions are typically held from early June through early August. You may attend the reception that is most convenient, whether it is in your hometown or elsewhere.  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!

Pre-registration is required in order to have an accurate count of attendees.   Registration for receptions will open in mid- to late-May.  Dates and locations are subject to change, and additional sites may be added through early summer.
