Wake Forest University

Wake Forest University is a private university located in the city of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. It’s a medium-sized school with almost 5,000 undergraduate students and 3,000 graduate students. The Reynolds Village located just a short walk from campus consists of shops and cute cafes. There is even a Pure Barre studio if you want to take a workout class.

“One fun fact is if a sports team wins a major game, it’s a tradition for the students to cover the Quad completely in toilet paper!”
