  • Wake Forest Drinking...A Critique...

    Jul 23, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Trying to Help Students
    Cons: Severe Health Risks

    Summary: So You're An Alcoholic... ...what else are your qualifications? As a Resident Advisor for almost three years, watching kids and their drinking habits was my job, and one I did very well. Part of my job was alcohol policy enforcement, ... read more

  • Ideal Academic/Social Combination for the Serious Student

    May 30, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Academics, Friendly Community, Great Reputation still on the rise
    Cons: While people are minority friendly, it's hard to tell given there aren't many minorities

    Summary: My first year of college at a different school quickly showed me that extensive research can never guarantee happiness. I must have seen every school in the northeast and along the east coast, but I had neglected many of the schools farther south. I ... read more

  • The World of Books...

    Jul 28, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Strong classes, wonderful professors
    Cons: Lack of variety

    Summary: So You Want To Be An English Major? Those who aren't sure become English Majors. That's always been the joke at Wake, and to some degree it's true. Liberal Arts majors are for those with diverse but unfocused interests, a way to learn ... read more

  • Kitchin Hall...Don't Step On The Rats!

    Jul 10, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good Location
    Cons: Dirty dormitory, rats and frats...

    Summary: Kitchin Hall, commonly referred to as the "ghetto" of Wake Forest University. How did it get that name? Does it deserve that ignominious title? What do I do now that I've been assigned to live there? Relax, and let Caconti give you the ... read more

  • Not Too Shabby...

    Jul 7, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Superior in college dining terms...
    Cons: Expensive

    Summary: College food is atrocious. After four years of college I had accepted this as undeniable fact, and so I decided to hold off on a Food Services review until after graduation, when my cynical outlook on Wake Forest's dining options would have some time to ... read more

  • On The Rise

    Apr 23, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Winning more...
    Cons: Inconsistent fan support

    Summary: Wake Forest Athletics is a program that is definately on the rise. The Deacs won the NIT in basketball this past season. They also took the Aloha Bowl in football. Currently, Wake is doing great in baseball as well. However, non-revenue sports such ... read more

  • The Palmer/Piccolo Experience...

    Mar 25, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quiet, larger rooms, I'm there =)
    Cons: Away from campus, small social scene...

    Summary: Like salt and pepper or Ted Kennedy and whiskey, Palmer and Piccolo Halls are an inseparable pair. Located on the boonies of campus, they are freshman buildings away from the hubbub of the main Quads or even of south campus. This being my second year ... read more

  • I Got A Job...You Can Too!

    Mar 24, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: They WILL get you a job!
    Cons: None

    Summary: In the middle of August of this past year, about two weeks before school started, I realized with a jolt that I had no idea what I was going to do when I graduated. Where would I find a job? What work did I want to do? How would a lousy English major ... read more

  • Great edumacation, butt...

    Mar 1, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Great edumacational experience
    Cons: No fun with the mamas and the bottle

    Summary: Allow me to get on my soapbox for a few words on this institution. WFU is a school of hard knocks! Before I tackle the negatives of my experience, let me voice the positives. This should not take too long. I feel that I have learned a lot in my four ... read more

  • Beautiful Place of Higher learning

    Feb 2, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: great education, cool people, beautiful campus
    Cons: administration

    Summary: Wake Forest has provided me with not only an academic education, but also a social education. I can say that first hand, I have experienced an increase in marketability for jobs over many other candidates just for having attended Wake. Iíll also say ... read more

  • Wake Forest... A Great School

    Jan 29, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great academic and social environment
    Cons: Lack of diversity, but compensated by unity of community

    Summary: Fresh out of high school, I was very excited about attending Wake Forest University, one of the most prestigious Universities in the country. But after only two weeks, I was ready to return home. But no, I couldn't... I told myself that I am a grown, ... read more

    Pros: academics are strong; student groups are diverse and active; acc athletics are exciting; student life is rewarding; professors are knowledgeable and accessible
    Cons: student body somewhat homogeneous; location is not the greatest; greek life can take over campus

    Summary: Wake Forest is the ideal school for students who are serious about their academics and who would like the opportunity to make a real difference on their campus. Wake's size is such that a student who has a real desire to make a change or to impact a ... read more
