“I felt such a sense of belonging here. The medical sim labs were so cool and the hands-on experiences gave me a clear view into the world of medicine. I made a new best friend and realized what I want to pursue in my future. The leaders were so kind and really made all of us feel included, safe, and excited about Wake Forest!” Kristen, Medicine Institute
“I had a great experience this week. The program leaders and ambassadors were very welcoming and knowledgeable, and I feel like, for an online program, it was pretty much the best it could have been. I learned new things while having fun during the labs, and heard about different topics firsthand from guest speakers. This online experience really solidified what I think I want to pursue.” Julia, Biosciences and Engineering Institute
