Campus Visit Notes for Wake Forest University
Both my daughter and I were very impressed with the info session and tour. The quality of student life seems excellent. The campus is beautiful. The negative was the size of the dorm room we saw, which was a freshman dorm--the options improve as you progress. On the positive side, the freshman dorms literally line the academic quad, so students could roll out of bed and be at class in 5 minutes.
Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:
We stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott on University Parkway, which was convenient to campus and to the airport.
Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:
Pig Pickins--Southern barbecue around the corner from our hotel.
