Throughout the year, current undergraduate students write letters to the incoming first-year class for the purpose of offering inspiration and guidance. These letters provide insight into the life of an undergraduate Deac at Wake Forest. These letters are sent under the initiative of Dr. Cherise James, Director of Orientation, New Student and Transitions Programs.
