We asked parents of rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors to think back to their student’s freshmen year and what they wish they had known. The links below provide their advice; items have been grouped thematically. Click the links below to visit the page(s) of your choice.
Social life/campus life advice
Family dynamics advice
Editorial note: The comments have been minimally edited and grouped together for coherence. In come cases, comments were combined with others. When we had parents responding with the same advice, we repeated it for emphasis. In the event a parent offered advice that ran counter to what Wake Forest advises, it was not included. These comments represent the views of the parent commentators, not the views of the Office of Family Engagement (formerly Parent Programs office) or Wake Forest.
