Educating the Whole Person – Wake Forest University’s Philosophy

You’re more, so be more. It makes sense. More importantly, it takes sense. A sense of initiative, a sense of balance, humor and a healthy sense of adventure. And if you’re going to challenge yourself, there’s no sense in going halfway. What we don’t know will never inspire us. So go there. Try this. Mix it with that. Jump in with both feet and never be afraid to lose yourself in finding what you were meant to do.

The Wake Forest University Summer Immersion Program offers rising high school sophomores, juniors, seniors and incoming college freshmen the chance to dive deep and explore a particular field of study.
