Come for a Visit

Visiting campus, connecting with students and faculty, and getting a closer look at the School of Divinity is a great way to see if our learning community is a good fit for you.

We provide several opportunities throughout the year that allow you to join us on campus so that we can learn more about you while you learn more about what sets us apart. Attend an open house, schedule an individual visit, or if you cannot make it to us, see if an admissions representative will be traveling in your area.

Open Houses

Our open houses are designed to give you a glimpse of what it is like to be a student at Wake Forest University School of Divinity. Open house group visit days usually include information sessions on the curriculum and Art of Ministry program, a campus tour, attending Community Worship, joining a class, and having lunch with faculty and students. Come spend a day with us.
