Wake Forest has come a long way since the days it was known as “Wake Forest Manual Labor Institute.” It’s computer to student ratio is 1.08 to 1, which is more than twice as high a ratio as any other college on this list. Students, faculty, and even parents stay connected to what’s going on on campus via the “Wake Forest Campus Life” app. It updates 24 hours a day with info on events and important contacts. Students can access the app using the extensive Wi-Fi coverage throughout the campus.
Wake Forest is helping to serve the needs of it’s community as well. This past spring, Google awarded Wake Forest’s Computer Science and Physics departments a grant to organize computational thinking workshops for local schools. Student volunteers from the Computer Science undergraduate and graduate programs worked with the local teachers in this effort. [ More ]
