Wake Divinity Day

8:30am - 4:30pmWingate Hall


Wake Divinity Day is an Open House designed for admitted students, those in the application process for Fall 2015, and those interested in finding out more about theological education at the School of Divinity.

Participating in the Open House will give you the opportunity to join other admitted students in Winston-Salem to explore Wake Forest and all we have to offer. Meeting faculty, learning about the curriculum, attending a class, engaging in community worship, and talking with peers about the advantages of attending Wake Forest for your theological education is just the beginning of what you’ll experience in your visit to the School of Divinity community. We look forward to having you on campus!
