The Summer Immersion Program offers students the chance to “try on” possible careers, learn directly from the best of the best, and visit companies and organizations that could be a future employer for your son or daughter. Along the way, students will collaborate with other like-minded peers, learn more about college life, and experience what it means to be independent.
“Our child gained interest and excitement for areas of the medical profession, more confidence and a glimpse into college life.”
“He has a very realistic view of the various career paths in sports marketing.”
“She gained confidence working in groups of people she did not know.”
Based in Uptown Charlotte, your child can choose from 6 of our dynamic institutes. They’ll work with renowned industry leaders and Wake Forest faculty as they visit some of Charlotte’s leading companies and organizations. Some of our institutes also offer a residential option in Charlotte, allowing out-of-state students to experience a career pathway as well.
Enjoy our beautiful campus in Winston-Salem. Your child will truly experience “a week at Wake”. They’ll learn from faculty and industry leaders in our classrooms, participate in site visits, meet like-minded new friends, stay in the residence halls, and eat on campus. It’s as close to being a Demon Deacon as someone can get without actually being enrolled!
