Wake Forest University

Let’s Connect!

A liberal-arts education is about freedom – to meditate on the world and relationships through intense acts of attention, guided by scholarship.

And we want to offer you the freedom to connect with a variety of voices from throughout Wake Forest’s campus, to learn about us and to give us the chance to learn about you.  

Whether in-person – student-led tours in June or student-led tours paired with information sessions in July and August – or online – our diverse offering of live virtual information sessions – we want to help guide you through the world of possibility that is Wake Forest University.

Please click on any – or all! – of the links below to register.

We look forward to getting to know you!

Distinctively Wake

Our live online session is a conversation where you can engage with Wake Forest University admissions representatives and a current student. These 45-minute live online sessions will be offered once a week and will alternate between Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Go here to register for Distinctively Wake.

Dean’s Corner

Dean’s Corner is hosted by the Dean of Admissions, Karen Vargas, who will address a topic of the month, on the first Thursday of each month. You’ll be able to submit your question for the topic of the month when you register; then, we’ll answer them for you and take questions live through the chat feature. Each session will last approximately 30 minutes.

The International Hour

If you’re a student from outside the United States, please consider joining us to discuss any questions you might have with Niki McInteer, our Associate Dean of Admissions who works specifically with international applicants. This session is not a structured presentation; instead, we’re hoping that you will come ready to engage with the Office of Admissions to learn more about Wake Forest from an international perspective. If you have specific questions about applying as an applicant from abroad, this is the space to find answers.

Student-Led Campus Tours

From June 1-29, student-led tours will be offered Monday-Friday at 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Student guides will lead these hour-long walking tours.

From July 6-August 10, we will offer in-person information sessions paired with student-led campus tours. This two-hour visit experience will be offered Monday-Friday from 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m.

In preparation for your visit, please know that we encourage masking of our visitors while indoors.
