SPARC (Students Promoting Action and Responsibility in the Community) is a four-day service-oriented pre-orientation program for first-year students, or SPARCies.
During the week, SPARCies get to know the Wake Forest and Winston-Salem communities through service and evening outings; learn about issues facing the Winston-Salem community; and meet with community partners that work regularly with Wake Forest students.
There is a $350 program fee due upon acceptance into the program. The fee covers housing, transportation, food and entertainment for the duration of the program.
Limited financial aid is available for students for which the program fee would be a financial burden. Students in need of financial aid should indicate so on their applications. No payment is required to apply.
Application Deadline: July 15
Move-in: August 17
Program: August 17-20
Program Cost: $350
SPARC accepts students on a rolling basis and is open until filled. Students are accepted in the order that they apply and there is not a waitlist.
