Since Wake Forest’s affiliation with The Washington Center in 2006, 146 Wake Forest students, including three post-graduates, have been selected to participate in semester-long or summer internships in their specific areas of academic interest or career exploration. The experience of living, learning, and interning in the Washington, DC area has been described by previous students as “life changing”, “challenging”, and “personally and professionally rewarding”.
…In the first year of the Institute (1834) students organized a debating society. Soon after the opening of the second session in 1835, students organized two groups, the Euzelians and the Philomathesians. These two literary societies promoted debate and oratory at all special occasions of the college.
Campus Life at Wake Forest represents a journey that seeks to engage students in experiences that broaden the mind, strengthen the body, and inspire the spirit.

Since its creation in 1834 as a small liberal arts college in eastern North Carolina, Wake Forest has been educating students from all walks of life. Many of the early students came from the region’s small towns and farms, rich in faith and community but poor in hard currency. After the Civil War, most southern families had even less money, and finding a way to pay for college was a huge challenge.
