The History of Wake Forest

In 1834, Wake Forest University was founded as part of the intellectual and humanitarian movement sweeping through the United States. Wake Forest University was a direct response to the need for education among the citizens of North Carolina. With increased student enrollment from 1905 to 1927, there also came an increase in faculty members. In 1941, the prestigious medical school moved to Winston-Salem to continue its commitment to health education excellence. By 1951, 20,000 onlookers watched as President Harry S. Truman broke ground for the construction of a brand new campus for the University, also in Winston-Salem.The University's motto, "Pro Humanitate" means "For Humanity," and this motto is just as true now as it was in 1834.
