I am an international student from India, and compared to other schools I find that diversity is lacking. Many internationals they claim to have here at wake are just Americans who went to high school in other countries. I have such friends at Wake from England, Japan and Germany. With all due respect, I feel they are more American than English or Japanese or German.
I sincerely hope that the incoming class is more internationally diverse. There is a fair amount of national diversity. I feel that there are people here from most states.
The social scene is dominated by Fraternities and since I'm greek, I have no complains. This does not mean my non greek friends have no social life. Infact they party in their rooms, even go to parties/bars. IMO join a fraternity, its beyond just the social life. Everyone may tell you pledging is hard, but its worth it. All pledging does is bring your pledge class closer together.
