At Wake Forest, we don’t just accept your students in the admissions process—we say we accept their families, too! We want to get to know you, and want you to feel comfortable about your student’s new home.


Wake Forest + Families

Your student is at the center—and is the focus—of this important partnership. From the time your child is accepted until graduation, here are a few ways that we stay in touch with families.


The Daily Deac blog

The Daily Deac blog is just one way in which we share important news, offer advice about supporting your students, and cover a variety of WFU activities and events to help you get a sense of campus life. You can subscribe and have the Daily Deac sent to your inbox each weekday around 5 p.m.
