Magnolia Scholars are assigned faculty advisors who are especially interested in supporting first generation student transition and success. These teachers work closely with Magnolia Scholars in advising, course registration, choice of major, international opportunities, summer advising and career counseling.
Upperclass Magnolia Scholars serve as Magnolia mentors and also assist in the important aspects of transition to Wake Forest expectations and opportunities. The Magnolia mentors will assist students in transitioning to Wake Forest in general, but their specific focus in on the academic environment. Students engage their mentors in intimate settings where they are assisted in time management, understanding how to study, how to navigate the library and general concerns of student life. The Magnolia scholars also participate in “brown bag” lunches beginning with “What I wish I knew when I started at Wake Forest University.”
