Welcome to Wake Forest.
At Wake Forest University, academics will be at the heart of your whole-student education. Our faculty members are exceptional teacher-scholars dedicated to your intellectual and personal growth.
This is a Remarkable Place.
Wake Forest University invites you to pursue the life of the mind with enthusiasm, put our cherished motto of Pro Humanitate (“for humanity”) into action, build lifelong friendships, and connect your academic learning to the world through service, clubs, student government, athletics, civic engagement, field trips, study abroad, internships, and so much more.
You will think better, analyze harder, integrate more, and communicate more effectively, which will separate you from your peers and propel you into leadership. And you will choose a major that thrills you while, at the same time, giving you expert knowledge and skills.
This is a remarkable place. No other university better prepares you to live a life of such meaning and purpose. We are enthused by your being here to learn more about us.
