    I love my life on Wake Forest. When I took my visit to campus in the April before I graduated high school, I immediately felt at home. I remember sitting in Wait Chapel listening to the provost speak about what current students said about their school, and she was absolutely right. Wake isn't just a university to its students, it's their home. I've made some of the greatest friends in the world at school, and I've yet to meet someone who is not satisfied with their experience at Wake. I also enjoy the fact that Wake is both a small school but participates at the highest level in athletics. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine being able to see ACC basketball on a consistent basis, but Wake has given me the opportunity to sit front row and watch some of the greatest teams in the country play. Wake also has many amazing traditions that occur on campus that really bring out the true heart and soul of its students.

    I LOVE Wake and everything it has to offer. There are so many groups you can get actively involved in. There are opportunities to be a leader on campus as early as sophomore year because of the intimate nature of the campus. The Student Union and Student Government work to create a very full social calender, doing everything from bringing big artists like Lupe Fiasco, and having weekend pre-release movie showings in the University Center. There is always something to do.

    Wake is a bubble and has little relationship with Winston-Salem, but the on-campus resources are great. People are awesome, but all somewhat similar.
