First Year (’25)

Weekly messages for parents and families of incoming students in the Class of 2025 will be posted during the fall semester. We hope these will be a helpful resource for you as your student transitions to life at Wake Forest. Bookmark this site and check back each week for a new message. Families should also visit the Office of Personal and Career Development (OPCD) parents and families page for information about supporting your students.

If Your Student Has a Problem

One of the best ways parents/families can help their students is to let them handle their business as independently as possible. Use the Stop, Drop, and Roll method when your student contacts you with a problem, a decision to make, etc.
