    I love the ZSR because it is my home away from home. To me, the ZSR as a little piece of haven among the the craziness of the college campus. One of my favorite classes at Wake so far has been my freshman year writing seminar. The course focused on writing in the future. I had the greatest professor ever and his class totally challenged to expand my views about the direction of our future. We read mind blowing post-apocalyptic stories and discussed the way technology is completely transforming the way in which we read and write. We also learned how to write in languages of the future, like coding and tweeting. It was such a refreshingly relevant English class. I wrote a whole paper about James Franco’s Instagram, which was probably one of the most fun I’ve ever had writing a paper for school.

    I wanted to join the ZSR Ambassadors in order to help bring more awareness to the Wake Forest community about the many services that the ZSR offers, while also working on lengthening that list of services.

    Since coming to Wake, I have really enjoyed getting to know downtown Winston, and exploring all the food and little local shops around the city. When I’m at home, in Boston, I really enjoy going to our many museums, as well as learning more about my city’s incredibly rich history.

    ZSR is an integral part of Wake Forest and I wanted to be part of new group of students that supports all that ZSR does.

    I love the ZSR because I know the faculty and staff truly care about my success and always look to improve. One of my favorite classes at Wake was my summer online course for learning C++. I was far away from campus but my professor still took the time to meet with me and all of the projects were fun.

    I love the library and the services it provides the students. As a part of the Ambassadors, I want to become a part of the library that is so important in my life and the lives of all Wake Forest students.

    I love ZSR and all it has to offer to Wake students as well as the Winston-Salem community. I’m so excited to have the opportunity to work with my fellow students in cultivating one of our campus’ strongest assets!

    The ZSR Library provides prime study spaces that promote focus and learning. I love sitting on the 6th floor overlooking the atrium down below. Creativity Across the Lifespan, a First Year Seminar taught by Sam Gladding, has been such an interesting and enriching class experience thus far at Wake. The class challenges me to explore how creativity plays such an important role in my life.

  • Carson Markland

    One thing I love about ZSR is that there are many resources available (books, movies, articles) with which to supplement learning in the classroom, which is also really helpful for writing papers. My favorite class at Wake Forest so far is Art History. I find it interesting to study the intersection of history with creativity and to understand how social conditions influence culture.

    I love the ZSR library because it is a place for research and it gives students the opportunity to explore global and interdisciplinary studies from the comfort of their home. One of my favorite classes at Wake has been the religion class on Palestinian and Israeli conflict, culture, and politics that I took in Israel. This class helped to expand my world view and gain insight into a field of study very different from my own, encouraging me to ultimately pursue a second major in religious studies in addition to chemistry.

    The Ambassadors program provides an awesome opportunity to get involved with my peers and help create new traditions to make our time at Wake even more memorable!

    I love ZSR because I’m always discovering new things there: hidden study spots, books, whole shelves of knowledge I didn’t know existed. Even after many years of wandering the stacks, I still find plenty of surprises. One of my favorite experiences at WFU so far has been designing my own interdisciplinary major in Ancient Near Eastern Studies. Trying to piece together a curriculum from five different departments could sometimes be difficult, but it’s extremely rewarding to have a program that takes full advantages of the full range of classes Wake Forest offers.

  • Melissa Navarro

    I love the ZSR because it’s such a cozy and homely place to get some work done with some Starbucks. My favorite class so far has been WRI111: What makes writing good? because it inspired me to minor in Writing. The course was an awesome way of thinking about writing in a completely different way which was so beneficial for me in order to move on from high school academic writing.

    ZSR provides students with an abundance of resources and a study haven literally open 24/7. Being an ambassador gives me the opportunity make sure my fellow students here at Wake can fully appreciate and utilize everything that the library has to offer.

    I love the ZSR because it provides a great environment to study and chat with friends. A class that I have really liked at Wake is African American Rhetoric taught by Dr. French. I like that class because it is fun and interesting and the class touches on a lot of controversial subjects.

  • Neil Upadhyay

    I love the library because its a place where all students, regardless of academic pursuits or other outside interests, can get together and interact.

    I am thrilled to be a ZSR Ambassador and look forward to contributing original and innovative ideas to Wake’s most popular work space.

    I love ZSR because it is my second home.

  • Jakayla Williams

    I love ZSR because of the abundance of resources provided and I want to be apart of “Wake Forest’s Google.” Student: I have no idea where to start? What should I do? Ha. I can just ZSR it. As an anthropology major, it makes it tough to narrow down just one class. So my favorite department at Wake continuously reminds me why I chose Wake Forest. If you want to know more, don’t be shy.
