History
View all previous student authors

Students at Wake Forest are very motivated and strive to be successful. This certainly extends to physical appearance. A common myth is that the admissions committee considers your physical appearance when considering your application—you are required to send a picture with your application. Nonetheless, students care about how they dress and how they look. Thus, as a whole, Wake Forest has a very good-looking student body.

The average student at Wake Forest is from the East Coast and could be best described as upper-middle class. Most students are also preppy in the way that they dress, and polo shirts are common on campus. Despite this, students tend to be very friendly and social. Of course, students who stray from these "norms" certainly exist and add to the eclectic fabric that is Wake Forest student life.

Social Scene
Wake Forest students tend to be extremely outgoing and friendly. During freshman and sophomore years, Greek life is dominant. However, the parties are largely open, and depending on what you are interested in, other social options are there. By the time they reach junior and senior years, students begin to frequent bars in downtown Winston-Salem.
Hookups or Relationships?
Both hookups and relationships exist at Wake Forest. However, it seems like people who are in relationships are in very serious relationships. A middle ground between these two extremes is difficult to find.
Dress Code
Students at Wake Forest tend to be very preppy in the way that they dress. Polos and khakis are ubiquitous on campus. Some students even dress up in more formal attire to go to class. This is especially apparent at football games, when many guys wear shirts and ties, and girls wear sun dresses.
