Wake the Forest Events

Welcome to the Forest, WFU25.

The first semester of college is a busy time – and every emotion from excitement to anxiety could make an appearance as you begin to sort out your new surroundings – and that’s during a traditional, non-pandemic year.

Wake the Forest is a series of events designed specifically to help new students feel at home the first few weeks of school. For the Fall 2021 semester, we will highlight opportunities specifically designed to help the class of #WFU25 connect with classmates and the whole of the Wake Forest community.

Are you a member of #WFU24? be sure to check out Sophomore Year Experience.
