Through the process of learning with our cohort and faculty, it creates a place of intellectual stimulation that will be greatly beneficial to us when we become counselors in the real world with real people.”

“Wake Forest has such as an extensive alumni base that I’ve actually gotten a couple of jobs because I was a Wake Forest student and because somebody or one of the managers was a previous student.”

“The counseling program really helped me look at myself, how I am, how I perceive the world and how that either positively, or even negatively, affects how I am with clients or potential clients, and just really increased my self-awareness and cultural competence in working with a diverse population.”
