Yesterday, February 3rd, marked the 179th birthday of Wake Forest University. On February 3rd, 1834, Wake Forest opened its doors and admitted its first students. Back then, a student’s education focused on two subjects: agriculture and Baptist ministry. Students were taught the importance of dedication, hard work and ambition. Above all, the early days of Wake Forest instilled within its students a passion for helping others, a value that remains ingrained in today’s Wake Forest community.
Check out all of the fun birthday festivities planned and celebrate Mother, So Dear all week!
