What Students Are Saying

4.18 Average Rating
A great university with qualified, engaged faculty, an active student body, and an atmosphere competitive enough so that students challenge one another but collaborative enough so that students are willing to help one another and engage in activities in which they can work together rather than compete. Unlike at larger universities, where, for example, the only members of the cross country club are those who have been running since middle school, Wake Forest fosters an environment where anybody can try anything. The Work Forest reputation is very real, but most students on campus have been prepared by pushing themselves in high school, otherwise the campus has great tutoring resources.

Wake Forest is a very prestigious school. It is a very strong school academically, and makes you think outside of the box. On a scale from 1 to 10 I rate my experience here at Wake Forest as a 7.
