What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Wake Forest because it feels like a home away from home. All people are different, and this institution tries to uphold its values. I am more than joyful about current plans to change the racial climate on campus and add another sect to the Presidential student-staff. As a student of color, it makes me feel like race relations are finally being taken as seriously as our academics. I plan to continue to work hard to continue changing the current climate, as that is something I am overly confident and hopeful about. The academics are stellar, and the professors usually care about your best interest. Wake Forest is a fun college environment, and I vow to work with other students to strengthen its qualities as a whole.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

A beautiful campus with great academics, but Greek Life dominates every social aspect on that campus. That's why I transferred. I felt as though I was looking for more from my peers. I wanted to be surrounded by people who weren't looking to get black-out drunk every weekend.

Wake Forest is an amazing school with the best of the best faculty and facilities. I always feel safe not only on campus but in the community. Wake Forest is the perfect environment, encouraging constant, deep learning but also promoting growth of the individual.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

During my time there, Wake Forest felt like a very isolated, academically rigorous institution full of students who cared mostly about making beneficial financial connections rather than creating deeply meaningful and genuine friendships. This changed for me once I had the opportunity to study abroad. I was able to make friends, become fluent in Spanish and broaden my horizons. Wake Forest had a multitude of study abroad programs to choose from, if there's anywhere in the world you'd like to study, Wake Forest has an opportunity for you!

Wake Forest University is very good academic wise but there could be more done on the diversity side of things. The professors are always available to help with topics regarding class and outside subjects. There are multiple opportunities for students to get involved on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Wake Forest for me personally was just not the right fit. While the academics and professors are top notch, the horror of the social scene completely outweighs the pros for this school. The influence of Greek life on campus is overwhelming and the party culture/mob mindset can be isolating for those who don’t adhere to this lifestyle. There is little to no diversity here, and many students (though putting up a good act on the outside) are highly depressed and miserable. I find it sad that the faculty and administration are aware of the social culture here yet have not done anything to address it- there is a general feeling of “this is the way Wake students are and we can’t change it.” To say the least, I am not surprised by how frequently WFU is on the news, and not for its positive attributes. If you are a party-every-weeknight and put-academics-second kind of person, Wake is the place for you. However, if you are a student who values education prioritizes academics above drinking, go to a school with less of a southern & Greek culture- you will be much happier.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Most housing options are nice but the registration process screws over a lot of people. The food in the dining halls is great - there are lots of healthy options and good variety - although the restaurants in Benson could be improved. Greek life is huge and competitive, especially if you are a guy. It is not the end all be all, but it definitely is a big part of people's campus experiences. It is definitely more dominant your first two years. There are bars and clubs downtown which draw solid crowds Wednesdays and sometimes Fridays/Saturdays but it is mostly Fraternity lounge/house parties or tailgates/dartys that are most popular. The academics have been both impressive and unimpressive for me. I have really appreciated the small class sizes and the accessibility of resources and professors. Yet, maybe just because I am a freshman in mostly intro classes, I have felt that a few of my professors do not have great teaching skills. The workload is heavy, probably around 2-4 hours a day, but very manageable if you can stay focused. Last, I would say that overall the school does a solid job of providing students with ample opportunities. There are many networking opportunities, there is an amazing fitness center, there are countless academic advisors and tutors, and there are tons of study abroad opportunities. Although Wake frustrates me at times, particularly the social scene and the housing/class registration process, in hindsight I really do appreciate this place. No college is perfect, and in comparison to the schools that my other friends attend Wake is just so much better in its balance of academics, community, opportunity and social scene.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have not been in attendance for very long yet at Wake Forest University, but from what I have experienced it is a very academic campus, and the school aims to meet as many extracurricular and scholarly needs as possible. No campus is perfect, and I do wish WFU would address more social issues, but the institution itself is overall very accommodating, with staff that do want the best for attending students.

Wake Forest University is a school that heavily emphasizes the importance of academics. However, there is also an emphasis on being well-balanced.
