Welcome to your resource for first-generation student support!

The First in the Forest program serves as a resource for all undergraduate students who are first in their families to attend an American college or university. We invite first-generation college students to join us at various meals, events, and gatherings throughout their tenure at Wake Forest.

We’ll be there with you from first-year move-in day with our First in the Forest family lunch to graduation weekend with our First in the Forest pinning ceremony. And along the way we’ll make sure you know about every opportunity Wake Forest has to offer and get to connect with your fellow first-generation college students.

The First in the Forest program is a project of and receives support from the Wake Forest Scholars Office.
