It's a conservative southern baptist school.
Rich, white girls and boys go to Wake.
Girls are in sororities and wear dresses to football games.
Boys are in frats and wear polo shirts with khaki shorts.
Wake is like a bubble- students are unaware of what is happening outside in the real world- outside of Wake Forest campus.
Since I am an athlete I realize this stereotype more than most. There is a stereotype about athletes. Athletes are dumb, only could get into Wake for sports, poor so they are on scholarship, just hang out with eachother- they are their own sorority/fraternity, they wear just sweat pants and all of their team stuff all the time, they are different, etc... Athletes are put into their own category like we are different from everyone. At Wake there are the "greeks", "regs" and "athletes".
Some are that we are preppy and wealthy, country-club like kids.
Wake is definitely one of those schools with lots of rich, preppy students, both stereotypically and in reality. And while you definitely will see your fair share of designer jeans and shoes in any given class, there will also be the athletes and straight-out-of-bed students who rep the sweats.
The stereotypical Wake student is wealthy, white, and conservative, and generally people say that the students chose Wake because they were rejected from Duke or Davidson.
The biggest stereotype is that every student that attends Wake is rich and smart.
1. Everyone is rich
2. Everyone is a J Crew catalog cut-out
3. Everyone is stuck up
preppy, work hard/ play hard, rich, no diversity
All really preppy, wealthy, and republican, oh and very Greek. Even if you come in different everyone leaves the same.
That the students come from affluent families and are very privileged and don't have to work for anything.

The stereotypes of Wake students are that we're all rich and preppy and snobby and there's not a lot of diversity.

Living on campus is living in a bubble.
Extenuation of private high school, stuck up
One of the main stereotypes about Wake students is that they are a bunch of white, upper-middle class, Southern, frat stars/daddy's girls.
Wake Students: preppy, white, wealthy, and smart

all conservative, very similar students

preppy, gorgeous, fit/athletic
The two big stereotypes that I can think of are the tough academics, as demonstrated by the nickname "Work Forest", and the southern, preppy, conservative atmosphere.
Wake Forest is believed to be a very difficult school and there is a common conception that Wake students work very hard. There is also a stereotype that all Wake students are rich kids involved in Greek life.
Small school with great ACC sports Rich kids due to Wake being an expensive, private school Work hard- play hard mentality
Preppy, preppy, preppy; the students are conservative; the students here are rich as Croesus; most people are in Greek organizations;
They're all Southern
