    This school is small, which can be good and bad. It means that you will know your teachers and you will have the opportunities to do many great things that those at other schools don't get to do. It also means that you have to have your work done for class if you don't want to end up embarrassed when you inevitably get called on to speak. It's a great motivator to get your stuff done. As was mentioned earlier, being different at this school can be tough. But don't worry - your niche exists and you will find it. Just make sure you don't give up before then, because someone else could be looking for you too. Take advantage of the opportunities! The study abroad program is especially wonderfully; whether you go through Wake or an affiliate program, the study abroad advisers will walk you through every step of the process. Last but certainly not least, this campus has little to no drainage system and when it rains it pours so BRING RAINBOOTS. You have been warned.

    Be sure you visit Wake Forest before making a decision. While it is a school that is appealing to many students, it is not made for everyone. Make sure you get your application in time and try to establish contact with an admissions officer during the process.

    If you're new to Wake Forest, it's important to get involved and attend the club fairs. College is all about making connections and figuring out what you like and don't like and being able to make decisions for yourself. It's nearly impossible to not get caught up in the social scene, but don't allow getting involved in greek life to rule your college experience. And always keep in mind that you came to college for an education. Everything else is very fun and you should experience it, but let academics be your priority.

    Bring a rain jacket. Manage your time wisely. Make connections.
