Worldwide Wake in a Nutshell

Worldwide Wake will enable globally-minded first-year students to enrich their cross-cultural awareness through a series of small group activities, interesting discussions, daily Global Challenges and fun social events.

Upperclass leaders serve as Program Assistants and will provide an overview of the academic and social scene at WFU by sharing their personal insights and experiences.

So join us for Worldwide Wake and set your course to become a more effective global citizen as you begin your career as a Demon Deacon!
