QEP Initiative: Global AWAKEnings

Description

Global AWAKEnings is a first-year abroad experience that parallels the first-year experience on campus for incoming domestic and international students with the added benefit of cultural immersion abroad in a living and learning community. Students participating in the first-year abroad experience in Copenhagen, Denmark will engage in challenging coursework led by Wake Forest and Danish faculty members who bring real life practice from their fields into the classroom.
