BIG Campus Connect

As a collegiate-university dedicated to educating and mentoring its students, Wake Forest University promotes and fosters exceptional faculty-student engagement. The Big Campus Connect is a week-long series of events which grants opportunities for meaningful interaction between administrators and students outside of the classroom. Originally proposed by an undergraduate student in 2009, this program is now in it’s fourth year and is co-sponsored by the Provost’s Office and Student Government. We hope that you join your students and take advantage of these events!
