Dear New Wake Forest Student,

I am writing from the Office of Academic Advising to extend my welcome to you as a member of the Wake Forest Class of 2019.  We look forward to being in touch with you over the summer and meeting you on August 21 for Orientation!

This is the first of several emails I’ll be sending you this summer to provide updates and reminders that are critically important for new students.  Remember to check your WFU email regularly for these emails along with emails that you might receive from other offices.  And please read each email carefully so you do not miss any critical information!

As indicated in the letter you received from the Office of Undergraduate Admissions when you made your deposit, soon you will receive a book called Forestry 101 in the mail.  When it arrives, please take some time to peruse it and the corresponding New Student Website (  The website will be live on May 8.  In the book and on the website you will find important dates and instructions to prepare you for your transition to Wake Forest.  It will be especially important to look over the “Key Dates / Action Items” section inForestry 101, so that you will be aware of important deadlines.  The earliest deadlines are listed at the end of this email so that you can get them on your calendar and be prepared to meet them.
