What Makes Us Special

About Wake Forest University

Founded in 1834, Wake Forest University combines the personal attention of a small liberal arts college with the breadth and depth of a large research university. With a mission to educate the whole person and "Pro Humanitate" (for humanity) as its motto, it is a community of engaged learning. The size of the vibrant North Carolina campus facilitates student-faculty collaboration, forges strong bonds across academic disciplines and equips students for life after graduation.
