Parties are pretty much the same thing at the same places with the same people. Greek life dominates the party scene, so usually there is either a frat lounge party or off campus house party every Friday and Saturday night. Some students also go out for what we call Wake Wednesday's, but honestly not that many people seem to go out on the weekdays. If you're into this type of party, then Wake is great! However if you don't enjoy these frat parties, other parties are near impossible to find unless there is a Barn party going on, which you have to pay around $7 for. I personally don't consider Wake to be a party school because parties are hard to find on the weekdays. People study hardcore on the weekdays, and then party hardcore on the weekends. Work Forest life: work hard, play hard!
