Vibrant. Intellectual. Personal.

Join us for a V.I.P. event!

V.I.P. is a thoughtfully-crafted and informal gathering of prospective students of color and their families sponsored by the Wake Forest Office of Undergraduate Admissions. In addition to Admissions staff members who guide the program, area alumni are sometimes invited to share their views on the value of their Wake Forest education now that they have transitioned into graduate school or the working world. The parents of current or past Wake Forest students may also be in attendance, providing additional insight into their child’s transition to the Wake Forest Community. V.I.P. is meant to provide a meaningful opportunity for historically underrepresented students and their families to begin picturing themselves as a very important part of the Wake Forest Community.
