Representing Wake Forest students since 1923
Who We Are
Student Government is the representative body of the undergraduate College and School of Business elected to serve students from all of Wake Forest’s classes. Members bring their varied backgrounds, identities, and interests to create an institution representative of Wake Forest’s diverse student body
We listen to students and address their concerns. We connect the gap between students and administrators. We support student groups and sponsor student life. We encourage events on campus and improve student life. We are here for students.
Student Government weekly Senate meetings are held Tuesdays at 7:00 PM in Benson 401. They are open to all Wake Forest students, faculty, and staff.
Mental Health Week 2023
Are you Ok? It’s more than a question.
Thank you for an amazing MHW! We had such a great time celebrating and focusing on our mental health with all of you in our community. However, we realize that one week can’t make all mental health struggles go away and so we’d like to connect you with resources that are available year round.
Remember, keep checking in on your community and asking: Are you Ok?
