U.S. News and World Report’s 2018 Best Colleges guide ranked Wake Forest University 27th overall among 311 national universities and 12th for its commitment to undergraduate teaching.
Wake Forest has been ranked in the top 30 in the national universities category for 22 consecutive years and was also 27th in last year’s guide.
“We are always delighted to be recognized for the extraordinary quality of the Wake Forest educational experience, including our outstanding faculty and the vast opportunities available to students,” said Wake Forest President Nathan O. Hatch.
“Beyond the distinctions noted in national rankings, we are also proud of our commitment to character development, genuine community and conversation, educating the whole person, and calling students to live lives for the common good.” Nathan O. Hatch

Fifty-nine percent of undergraduate classes at Wake Forest have fewer than 20 students and only one percent of Wake Forest’s classes have more than 50 students, the lowest of any top-30 school.
Remaining in the top 10 percent of undergraduate business programs for the 11th consecutive year, the Wake Forest School of Business was ranked 40th.
