Long one of Wake Forest’s defining features, the interaction between and among superb professors and bright, enthusiastic students is the key to real learning and discovery.

Our faculty members’ engagement with students is not limited to classroom, studio, stage, or laboratory; Wake Forest students are challenged not only by course content, but are also mentored and encouraged to think critically in the intimate learning environment of the campus community.
