Beautiful. Friendly. A community. A home.
The best way to experience Wake Forest is to visit its beautiful campus, where magnolia-flanked buildings border well-ordered quadrangles. The chapel, the quad, the library — and of course the students and faculty — create a wonderful sense of community that you will feel the first time you visit.
NOTICE: Please check the Wake Alert site or Wake Alert Twitter feed for weather-related closings. If the Wake Forest Reynolda campus is closed, the Admissions Office will be closed.
