You’re Among Friends.
The Forest is intentionally small so that the individuals who are drawn here will never be lost in a crowd or see themselves as anything less than a vital part of a true community. Wake Forest takes education personally. That means providing all possible means of supporting students in what can be an exhilarating yet stressful time in a young person’s life.
We are committed to providing a vast network of support services and centers designed both to guide our students throughout their time at Wake Forest and provide outlets of individuality and commonality within a diverse environment rich in perspective, inclusion and open dialogue.
