Welcome to the Forest.
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.
Traditionally, Wake the Forest has been a series of events designed specifically to help new students feel at home the first few weeks of school. For the Fall 2020 semester, we will highlight opportunities (both in-person and virtual) specifically designed to help the classes of #WFU23 and #WFU24 connect with classmates and the whole of the Wake Forest community.
Get the Corq App
Stay connected to what’s happening. Download the Corq app for Wake the Forest event information and touchless check-in. Available at the Apple Store and Google Play.
Once you download the app and select Wake Forest as your campus, sign in with your WFU gmail account to view and register for student-only events.
Virtual Involvement Fair
Our first ever Virtual Involvement Fair is now live on Flipgrid!
Throughout the summer, student leaders have submitted videos introducing their organizations and providing information on getting involved. New and returning students can access all of those videos at their own pace throughout the semester. Once you log in with your WFU gmail, click on the Office of Student Engagement logo to watch the “feature video” which will explain how to access all of the clubs, organizations and involvement opportunities that have recorded videos!
If your organization is interested in hosting an event this fall (ideas below!), you can apply for Student Activity Fee funding using the application below. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
