Meet Us Online
Wake Forest continues to build connections, share ideas, and foster communication. Toward that end, we’re offering new opportunities – Distinctively Wake, Dean’s Corner, and The International Hour – to connect with you, and we hope you’ll join us in the dialogue.
We want to have a conversation with you.
Our live online session is a conversation where you can engage with Wake Forest University admissions representatives and a current student. We’ll share what makes Wake Forest distinctive, tell you about the application process, and give you the opportunity to ask us questions through the chat feature.
Sessions will take place at 7 p.m. ET. on the following dates:
Thursday, July 1
Tuesday, July 6
Thursday, July 15
Tuesday, July 20
Thursday, July 29
Tuesday, August 3
Thursday, August 12
Tuesday, August 17
Thursday, August 26
Tuesday, August 31
Each session will last approximately 45 minutes.
* Sessions will be offered once a week and will alternate between Tuesdays and Thursdays.
There’s no question you have questions. We have the answers. Dean’s Corner is hosted by the Dean of Admissions, Karen Vargas, who will address a topic of the week. You’ll be able to submit your question for the topic of the week when you register, we’ll answer them for you, and take questions live through the chat feature.

If you need accommodations for an event, please contact Dawn Calhoun at firstname.lastname@example.org or 336.758.5177 five business days in advance.
The International Hour
If you’re a student from outside the United States, please consider joining us to discuss any questions you might have with Niki McInteer, our Associate Dean of Admissions who works specifically with international applicants. This session is not a structured presentation. Instead, we’re hoping that you will come ready to engage with the Office of Admissions to learn more about Wake Forest from an international perspective.
Sessions will take place every other Thursday at 8 a.m. ET.
Sessions will continue throughout the year, so please check back for fall dates.
If you have specific questions about applying as an applicant from abroad, this is the space to find answers.
At Wake Forest University, we value initiative. We’re excited to offer you this page to point you to what’s next – as a way for you to start planning ahead.
Where to Start
Let’s start with your getting to know us – and our getting to know you. Through application questions and optional personal interviews, we’ll want to know about your talents and accomplishments, your thoughts and ideas, your motivations.
