the best thing is the small classes and being in the south with frats and sororities. I would change so that it is not such a bubble, however, and make it a better college town. I dont spend much time on campus anymore except for classes. Administration could be improved to do more to cater to the students (better choice of food, frat row instead of faculty housing, bars closeby in reynolda village etc) These seem to be some common complaints.
I'd say most of my professors, if not all, know my name. My favorite class this semester would probably have to be photography and my least favorite philosophy, which i am only taking as a divisional requirement. Students study a lot here, too much, which is another thing I would change about it-it's a great education, but too much work-students need more of a college/party atmosphere throughout the week. I dont spend time with my professors outside of class. Wake helps you in terms of looking for careers, which is nice, and I'd say its mostly geared toward that as opposed to the joy of learning.
Our black population is definitely in the minority, although it is increasing. Most students dress up to class especially in the spring. Most black kids hang out together and most white kids hang out together-its pretty racially divided. Most students are from NC and NJ, and a lot from CT nowadays. A lot of rich people. Students dont talk politics as much as they probably should, at least not that ive noticed and dont talk about how much they will earn either.
