-Dean Gillespie

To sign up for Project Wake, click here: https://newstudents.wfu.edu/orientation/project-wake/ .  You will need to log in using your Wake Forest email to complete the registration form.

As we approach Round I of registration, here are some items you might find useful (for other details provided previously, refer to email we sent on July 10, Forestry 101, or the newstudent website, sections on Academics and Registration):

  • Most of the Living-Learning Community FYS classes are full, based on the interest expressed via the Writing Course Survey (Part I).   Even for those that still have a few seats, enrollment is on hold until after residence assignments are finalized, due to the requirement that students be assigned in the matching residence hall. Therefore, you will not be able to register for these sections (http://advising.wfu.edu/learning_communities/) on your own in Round I.
  • If you are interested in the School of Business but still unsure about what a pre-Business student should take in the first year, see the following resource page http://advising.wfu.edu/school-of-business-information-for-advisers/. Note, however, that we do not recommend that you take MST 111 and ECN 150 in the same semester. Both are also offered in the spring, and we recommend that you spread these classes out over your first year.  If you do register for both classes for the fall, there is a good chance we will have to drop you from one of them during Round II, so as to ensure that as many students as possible who need these classes can enroll in at least one.  Maximize your Round I choices, and choose only one of these classes.
