As a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC), Wake Forest is one of the few schools that can truly boast a small student body and elite athletics program. Basketball, football, and soccer games are all very popular, especially when Wake faces arch-rivals Duke and North Carolina. Attending a high-profile game and storming the basketball court is always a memorable experience. Of course, another major highlight is papering the Quad with toilet paper.
Students are heavily involved in club and IM sports. There are a variety of different options to choose from and students are always playing pickup games. The Demon Deacon sports teams have been rebuilding lately, but they are poised to rise to the top of the ACC game with a few solid recruiting classes in basketball and football.
