The Magnolia Scholars program carries the legacy of “Old Wake Forest. ” When Wake Forest opened, it was an Eastern North Carolina, white, male, Baptist college. Virtually all of the students were from farms and small towns, many were first generation college students. They left Wake Forest with grand ambitions to serve the larger state, regional, and national community, building our institutional reputation with their deeds. Though we are now a nationally ranked university with a richly diverse population, we are still that same small school at heart. The first generation students that built Wake Forest will always be a special population here.
