We’re So Glad You Could Make It.
Within this website, you’ll find everything you could possibly need to survive in the Forest.
Food, shelter, maps, general wisdom and the laws of the land. All conveniently located in the following pages. So make yourself comfortable, and take a look around.
You can graduate, but you never have to leave.
About that calendar – Use a pencil , not a pen.
As you move through Forestry 101 and the New Student website, you’ll notice that the summer before you start classes and your first weeks in the Forest have lots of “key dates” and deadlines. We have taken a great deal of care to plan a smooth introduction to Wake Forest for the Class of 2024, but we expect that COVID-19 will continue to impact the New Student calendar.
The dates in Forestry 101 were accurate at the time this book and the website were produced. But if plans change throughout the summer, details, dates and deadlines will shift as well. It’s important that you consult the New Student website regularly for the most updated information.
