Many of the facilities are new but the majority are old and aging. For example our gym that we use has four treadmills for a school of 4,000+ students, and often there is at least one or two out of order. The gym also has ceiling leaks during rain storms and the equipment is out of date and pathetic compared to most schools of our size and tuition. My high school was 300 kids and had a nicer gym than Wake!
I want to know about this too! I have heard Wake has a very fit student body.
Wake has a very fit student body. Here body image is a sort of issue. I don't like it, I wish more people could just "be". However, the exercise machines here are varied - there are ellipticals, treadmills, bike machines, mats for push ups, sit-ups, and even medicine balls. The school also features classes like "Zumba" where you can burn up to 800 calories in 2 hours! AHH!! I wanted to take it, but as a guy...um I feel like I'll be the only one in there out of like 50 girls. So yes, there are a variety of exercise classes and groups - for more information just stop by the Miller Center at Wake and talk to them :)

Simply put, Wake Forest's campus is beautiful, and the University makes great strides to keep it this way. The facilities that are strewn across the manicured campus are also well-maintained. The academic buildings help to add to the intimate academic experience, and they are all very well-equipped with technology. The library is spacious and even has a Starbucks inside of it for a late-night snack or caffeine crisis.
Probably the biggest complaints about Wake's facilities revolve around the student center and athletic center. The student center, Benson University Center, is not a true student center in that it is not the central hub of student activities. It is more of a hybrid between student life offices and student organization office space. The administration is aware of this, and the creation of a new social space called "The Barn" is underway. The athletics facilities are clean and well-kept but just too small for a school like Wake Forest where students are active. Reynolds Gym in particular is in need of renovation. Luckily, there are talks for the athletic facilities to be updated, but until then Wake students will have to make do or join one of the numerous gyms in Winston-Salem.
