Wake Forest University is located in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. At one time it was located just north of Raleigh in Wake County. It was started in 1832 when the North Carolina Baptist State Convention decided to buy a plantation that was 600 acres. The region in which the plantation was located was called the "Forest of Wake" and therefore, the school got its name Wake Forest Manual Labor Institute from this area. It was called a manual labor institute because students and faculty were made to do manual labor for half of every day on the plantation. This mandatory work was continued until 1838 when the school's name was changed to Wake Forest College. As many other schools of that time, Wake Forest closed due to the loss of many of the students and faculty due to the American Civil War. Fast forward to 1946 when the school received a lot of money from the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation and the school was moved to Winston-Salem, North Carolina. After the start of the graduation school in 1961, the Wake Forest College became a full fledged university in 1967.
