90 degree weather couldn’t stop the Deacs! With over 214 student-led organizations present at Wake Forest’s Fall involvement fair, there didn’t seem to be one square inch of Manchester Plaza untouched by the excitement, fun, and friendship that our involvement scene has to offer.
From club sports, to intercultural groups and even some high-spirited fraternity and sorority members, the fair was a veritable buffet of opportunity for all our new Deacs (and maybe a few older ones) to see what Wake can offer to them (outside of their academics of course).
The Fall involvement fair, organized and executed by WFU’s Office of Student Engagement, has been an incredibly popular event for students of all classes to come to south campus and see what the students here are interested in. It’s also a great way to navigate the sometimes-murky waters of Wake’s student club scene. If this sounds a little bit like you, don’t worry! The Office of Student Engagement has your back, and would love to get you in contact with one of the office’s Engagement Consultants.
Engagement Consultants (EC’s) are student employees of the OSE that are trained and experienced in helping students of all ages, backgrounds, and interests to find their place on Wake’s campus. They can get you in contact with club presidents, advisers, volunteer opportunities, off campus programs, and more! If you came to the involvement fair and just feel swamped and don’t know where to begin, start with an EC, and let us help you find your place.
