Student Engagement

Because There’s More To School Than School.

Wake Forest offers you the opportunity to expand your horizons within a community that is at once rooted in enduring traditions and characterized by innovation and adaptability to fast-changing contexts. Student Engagement invites you to become an engaged citizen in our community, to enhance your self-awareness and grow as a courageous leader and to be a part of tradition while also being a part of the future. Your Wake Forest experience will allow you to not only broaden your perspective but also deepen your view.

Student Engagement at Wake Forest offers a multitude of ways to connect, explore and grow. Throughout the year, you’ll be able to take part in programs that complement your academic experience through the arts, traditions, political involvement, media and community service. Throughout these experiences, you’ll develop new skills, new friendships and new ways of seeing the world.

Consider becoming an invested community member in one of the over 200 chartered student organizations and campus-wide initiatives. From service-oriented organizations to political groups to social organizations and religiously affiliated groups, there is bound to be an organization that aligns with your interests and curiosities.
