Demon Deacons come from all over the planet, bringing a galaxy of interests and ideas with them. Some know what they want to do from the moment they descend into this Forest, and they stick to it. But immediate certainty is not a policy around here. Exploration is a vital part of the journey, and diversity — of people, of thought, of studies and of activities — is a trait we’re happy to cultivate.
More than beautiful brick buildings, technology or national rankings, people make Wake Forest the place it is. People who love challenge as much as they love learning, and the opportunity to engage all of who they are in search of what they were meant to become.
Our 340 acres include dozens of species of trees inhabited by 109 species of birds who take flight in between acclaimed physical structures. As for the humans, they come from more than 50 countries and nearly every U.S. state. Together, they make our Forest one of the most compelling settings for a college experience anywhere in America. But don’t take our word for it. None other than Architectural Digest agrees.
The numbers can be daunting, but they are not disqualifying. Let us help you make a college education affordable.
