My first week as a Deac

New-student orientation is Wake Forest's way of welcoming new students and parents into the community. An outdoor movie, picnic on Hearn Plaza (the Quad) and an introduction to the spirit of Wake Forest are a few of the ways students get to meet other students as well as faculty and staff.

The new-student orientation schedule will give you an idea of what happens during your first days as a Demon Deacon.


Each undergraduate student has an academic adviser who assists with course selection and registration each semester.

First-year students are assigned a lower division academic adviser for two years. The academic adviser and an upperclass student (student adviser) meet with students individually and in small groups and suggest and approve course selections until students declare a major at the end of the second year. At that time a new adviser is assigned.

Visit the advising site for current students to learn more about the advising process.
