2024 SSI College Visit – Wake Forest University

On April 24th, a representative from Wake Forest University visited Seoul Scholars International. We engaged in a brief icebreaker session, allowing students to introduce themselves to the admissions officer. This interaction aims to leave a lasting impression, potentially aiding students’ applications to the university, as the officer will recall those they’ve met.

Wake Forest is located within minutes or hours of some of North Carolina’s best national parks, rivers, and a wide variety of natural experience destinations. There is also a dining scene, live music, professional sports, historic museums, and cultural festivals around the campus area and downtown.
