Students can also start their own organizations if they don't find one that fits their interests.

According the school website, Wake Forest's mascot stems back to the 1920s, when a school reporter gave the Wake Forest football team the nickname "Demon Deacons" after a "devilish" win over the Trinity Blue Devils (now the Duke Blue Devils).

Notable Demon Deacons include former U.S. Senator Kay Hagan, basketball players Tim Duncan and Chris Paul, golfer Arnold Palmer and actor Carrol O’Connor (Archie Bunker).
