A fundamental truth that we look to pass on here at Wake Forest University, a 5,200-undergraduate, test-optional, liberal-arts school in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, with an 11:1 student-faculty ratio, 45 majors, and 60 minors:

We need a diversity of perspectives and experiences to be a whole, and growing, person.

To represent this truth at this time of year, on the first Sunday of December we gather for a Lovefeast.

Lovefeast is a Moravian holiday service of carols and reflection – not to mention, sweet-buns and coffee! – which hosts students, parents, alumni, friends, and others from on campus and far away.

Lovefeast signifies our privileging of community above any one individual. It recognizes that we only find love and hope when we do.

At the conclusion of Lovefeast, we hold up our candles to show that there is still light, even in a dark world, and that we are that light, warding off the shadows of human oppression through communal action.

If you’d like to be a part of this place that understands the importance of others to illuminating the self, apply today, and consider doing so through our binding Early Decision II plan, which lets you hear back from us early (on February 15). The deadline for Early Decision II and Regular Decision applications is by 11:59 p.m. on January 1.

Open yourself up to others.

Warmest regards,

Wake Forest University Office of Undergraduate Admissions
