When North Carolina native Evan Raleigh was in search of the perfect college, he had three things in mind: (1) the strength of the school's academic reputation; (2) the size of the school; and (3) the school's location and proximity to home. He found all three in the form of Wake Forest University. But Raleigh, who received a full academic scholarship to study at Wake Forest, credits the university's Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA) for his current success in the classroom. This article describes OMA's success in recruiting and retaining minority students. In addition to academic and professional development services, OMA offers various leadership and mentoring programs, academic tutoring and advising, study abroad, internship and financial aid assistance, and programs that specifically target Black male students.
