Located three miles from downtown Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Wake Forest University is a private, four-year university. The tree-covered campus houses a student body of about 7,000 with a student/faculty ratio of 11 to 1. All students are required to live on campus their first three years, but with plenty of residence halls to choose from, most students don’t find this to be a problem. Wake Forest is the home of both graduate and undergraduate programs, as well as schools of law, medicine, business, and divinity. U.S. News and World Report ranked Wake Forest 25th in the nation in its 2012 Best Colleges Guide and 13th in the 2013 report for best undergraduate teaching. For more information, you can check out the Wake Forest admissions profile or the university's official website.
