Dear Class of 2015, First, we made it! (or close!) We pulled the all-nighters, we studied for tests, we sat in the Pit for hours and we have arrived at the home stretch of our incredible four years.

You are not just a student, but a member of the Wake Forest community.

Rising Sun, Md., native David Hale knew that he wanted to attend a research-oriented university long before choosing Wake Forest.
