  • Undergraduate Research

    It’s so popular, WFU devotes an entire day to it! And let’s be honest… not every university affords students, especially first-years, the opportunity to learn and create alongside their faculty.

  • The Demon Deacon

    Need we say more?

  • D1 Sports Environment

    WFU is small enough for you to actually to get to know your peers, on and off the field. Not only will you be cheering for your fellow Deacs, but you’ll know their names!

  • Unrivaled Facilities

    With a focus on holistic, multidimensional well-being, the facilities at Wake Forest will support your mind, body, and spirit. Whether you need to decompress or gear up for something tough, the facilities at WFU have you covered.

  • A Unique Experience

    No two students have the same experience at Wake Forest. With 45 majors, 60 minors, and 200+ student organizations from which to choose, you’ll be able to tailor your time here from start to finish. Explore broadly the liberal arts, and play the intellectual field every chance you get!

Each year, incoming students are assigned both a Lower-Division Faculty/Staff Adviser and Student Adviser. In tandem, Student Advisers serve as a guide throughout orientation and a student’s first semester. Student Advisers assist the Lower-Division Adviser with individual and small group advising by offering insight on class selection, building a social network, and academic support services. They are trained to answer most general academic inquiries. Working closely with Lower-Division Advisers and OAA, Student Advisers support their peers in developing academic plans built on values, goals, and career aspirations.


Student Advising Leadership Council

Student Advising Leadership Council 2022

I’m Emma Xu and I’m so excited to be taking over the Student Advising Instagram this week! Welcome to Wake and go deacs!!!!🎩

ROUND 2 REGISTRATION HELP! Come visit us in Collins until 8pm for all your registration needs🤩🤩🥳🥳

Let the fun begin!!! 🤩🥳

We are excited to give a big welcome to Zac Roth (He/Him) from Wellington, Florida. He is double majoring in Business Enterprise and Communications. For Zac, Wake was a perfect fit because it offers a great mix of strong academics and D1 sports combined with small classroom sizes and a relatively small student body. His favorite thing about Student Advising is getting to help the newest members of the Wake Forest community acclimate and explore the place they will call home for the next four years.

Join us in welcoming Tim Erday (he/him) to the Student Advising Leadership Committee! Tim is from Summit, NJ, majoring in Finance with a minor in Philosophy! He chose Wake because it was a place where everyone worked hard but where he could still have fun. Tim also considers the weather in NC to be an upgrade from NJ! He loves Student Advising because he understands that the transition to college can be intimidating so it means a lot to him that he is able to help new students find their home at Wake.

We are so excited to welcome back Matt Albren (He/Him/His) from Newburyport, Massachusetts! Matt is a communications major with minors in psychology and sociology! He chose Wake because of the interesting, energetic people he met who made him feel welcome on campus! One huge factor that helped him in the process was his interview with the admissions office as all the people were the friendliest that he had ever met! Then, when the acceptance envelope arrived in the mail, he knew it was the school he was going to pick! Matt loves student advising because it means a lot to him to help first-year students adjust to college life. He wants to help make sure other members of the WFU community experience the same fondness for the experience that he had and hopefully come into themselves at college knowing their advisers got their back!
