My name is James Day, and I am the first Brucker Family Fellow with the Center for the Study of Capitalism.

I am a senior from Washington D.C majoring in Economics and minoring in History and Global Trade & Commerce. My favorite class that I have taken at Wake Forest is Dr. Fred Chen’s Advanced Microeconomics course; a challenging and incredibly applicable course to everyday life.

Last fall, I studied abroad at Cambridge University in the UK where I continued my studies of economics and history in addition to pursuing my love for travel and adventure. I spent the last several summers as a cowboy at a ranch in Wyoming as well as leading wilderness canoeing trips at my summer camp in Vermont. 

In the future I want to live in Washington D.C and be close to family while pursuing worthwhile work that helps me continue to grow and assume more responsibility.
