Wake Forest University has made the Peace Corps’ top 25 list of small colleges and universities with the most Peace Corps volunteers.

With 17 Wake Forest graduates currently serving as Peace Corps volunteers, Wake Forest is ranked 16th on the current list.  Since the Peace Corps was founded, 182 Wake Forest alumni have served as volunteers.
