Wake Forest University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (8)
I am a very recent graduate of Wake Forest University and cannot recommend this school to degree seekers enough. It honestly was the best four years of my life, as they say. I was actually excited to go to class every day, I looked forward to doing my reading assignments and learning from some of the most intelligent men and women I know. Wake Forest does so much for its students, whether it be providing them with research experience opportunities or career services. Wake Forest feels like a community or a family, not just a university. And even though we aren't that stellar at football or basketball, we all still come out to the games to support our fellow Demon Deacons! I highly recommend looking into Wake Forest, you won't regret it.
Wonderful program!! Very hands on with a lot of awesome labs. Great professors and small class sizes. Even help finding a career position. I would recommend this program to anyone. You can concentrate on many aspects. I loved microbiology and pathology.
Wake Forest University has been a fantastic experience overall. The classes are quite challenging and grading can be a bit frustrating. Wake could really use some more academic advising specific to individual majors. My major, minor combination was very difficult to complete and I did not know how notoriously difficult the program was. Also, I really think a lot of better course planning and scheduling could have ameliorated a lot of the stress that came with a rigorous major.
Wake Forest University has an incredibly beautiful, walk-able campus. To walk from end to end takes only 10 or so minutes, so getting to class is easy. I am very impressed with the rigor of the university. My professors demanded high quality work from each student. Furthermore, the Wake Forest name will carry you far. I and the overwhelming majority of my classmates secured employment prior to graduation.
Strong academic reputation. Small class sizes. Good liberal arts school. Easy to feel like an outsider in the student body if you do not fit the Wake Forest "type."
Wake is a work hard, play hard school and it attracts students who like this atmosphere. You'll have intelligent conversations with friends, but also make the best memories of your life with friends who love to have a good time. Almost everyone is well rounded at the school, and most love to get involved whether in volunteer activities, Greek life, student life, tutoring, etc. Wake is a beautiful campus with beautiful students! I met my husband there and I'm so grateful for my time there :)
Excellent well-rounded undergraduate education. Fairly conservative campus experience that seems to be getting more balanced over time. Students very competitive and high-achieving. Active greek life.
Wake is a great school for any major, but especially for those looking to do business, economics, communications, or political science. All the professors are very dedicated and work hard to make sure no student falls behind. Class sizes are very small and colaboration is always encouraged for better learning.
