It’s that time of year — for first visits, second looks, and even last-minute reevaluations of college campuses. Thank goodness Wake Forest University’s Associate Dean of Undergraduate Admissions, Dawn Calhoun, is here to clarify the roles of campus visits and tours in the college decision-making process!
Determining how to write the “perfect” essay is daunting when applying to college. Thank goodness then Wake Forest Associate Dean Dawn Calhoun is here to help us to pin/pen down what exactly makes for rich, compelling writing for college admissions officers.
Wake Forest Rangers are bringing the Forest to a forest near you, North Carolinians – picking up the Quad and planting it in your local park!
Join us for fun, facts, and a few surprises – a factstravaganza! – designed to help us get to know each other better.
We hope to see you in the forest – and ultimately, the Forest – soon!
Forever your Wake Forest Rangers,
Dawn Calhoun, Associate Dean of North Carolina Admissions

You’re not just a pathfinder; you’re a trailblazer, and that’s why we want to meet you!
Join us on Friday, September 20, 2019, at 1:00 p.m. (registration begins at 12:30 p.m.) to begin your journey at Wake Forest University as part of the Pathways to Wake Forest program. Please note that admission to the Pathways program does not signify scholarships for or admission to Wake Forest University.
Pathways to Wake Forest is a campus-visit experience open to juniors and seniors, designed for historically underrepresented populations, including but not limited to Black/African American, Hispanic/Latinx, Native American, and Asian American backgrounds, as well as first-generation students.
At Wake Forest, we learn from differences and seek to create paths to be an inclusive community connector.
During this program, you’ll engage with our vibrant community and learn about our exciting and rigorous classes. Along with administrators from the Office of Financial Aid, we’ll share insights and offer tips to demystify the admissions and financial aid process. To further explore paths at Wake Forest, we also encourage you to sign up for an information session and a campus tour!
To be considered for this program, you simply need to submit the following:
We’ll only consider complete applications; the deadline is September 13. We’ll notify students about decisions by September 17. If you’re not offered a spot to participate in Pathways, we still very much hope you’ll visit campus, engage in a personal interview, schedule a campus tour, and complete our application.
We hope you’ll consider this path to Wake Forest University!
