Eating Disorders

While the transition to college is an exciting time for young adults, full of opportunities for independence and self-discovery, it also comes with an array of stressors, challenges, and life events that must be navigated. It is not unusual for students with a history of an eating disorder to experience a recurrence of eating disorder thoughts and/or behaviors during this time of transition. Wake Forest University has resources available to help students develop a plan to successfully maintain recovery or provide treatment for ongoing symptoms. We recommend that students make an appointment in either the Student Health Service or the University Counseling Center early in the semester to discuss available resources.

Food Allergies – Special Dietary Needs

Students with a history of food allergies or other special dietary needs should refer to this information concerning available resources while at Wake Forest.
