Small school down in Winston-Salem, North Carolina...Top 10 for D-1 sports such as basketball, golf, field hockey and soccer. Owns the nickname "Work Forest" and has the 'Study Hard, Party Harder' reputation. Probably fits in the top 25 schools in the nation in terms of selectivity and academic caliber. Similiar in academics and style to such southern schools as Duke (my school),UNC-Chapel Hill,UVA, Vanderbilt, Georgetown, and Emory. Had I not gotten into Duke, Wake was my 2nd choice school out of all of these. Besides Duke and Stanford and a few other schools, Wake has one of the prettiest and most beautiful campuses in the nation.
Wake Forest is in Winston-Salem, N.C.
