The arts are naturally woven into the fabric of living and learning at Wake Forest — promoting intellectual curiosity, inclusivity and innovation. Each semester, students #WakeTheArts by engaging in academic classes, performing in theatre or music productions, participating in public art projects, bringing the arts to children at local schools, choosing to join arts-related extra-curricular activities and attending arts-related events.

From a concert promoting environmental conservation to a student art-buying trip to a play exploring important social issues, there are hundreds of opportunities each year to explore the world through a variety of lenses.
