The academics here are definitely good (especially in environmental studies) but not top of the line. However, I have already learned a ton in my classes and expect that to continue throughout my time here. Aside from what I've learned in my classes, Warren Wilson teaches more than just academics. I have learned a lot about bicycle mechanics, being a janitor, how to live positively in a close community, what kinds of work go into making every aspect of college life possible, and even a little bit of blacksmithing, just to name a few things from outside the classroom. So...

    Warren Wilson is a small close knit community in the mountains. The student, faculty and workers help each other to change the world for the better through learning , volunteering, and work. And while your looking to impact the world economically, socially, or earthly you can enjoy a spectacular view of the mountains.

    Warren Wilson is a tight-knit community of thoughtful and dedicated students, staff, and faculty who possess a thorough work ethic, a deep love of service, and a broad range of academic interests. Though a chunk of the week is taken up by work on a specific crew, Wilson students still manage to spend time working in the local gardens, children's programs, and a plethora of other meaningful service projects. Because of the smaller size of the school, there is more time dedicated to each student (whether by fellow students, teachers, or staff) and so students feel a sense of significance and are encouraged to grow in knowledge, experience, and heart.

    Peace and love and mountains! Not for those who aren't prepared to get their hands dirty. And maybe not for everyone, but certainly welcoming everyone anyways.

    Warren Wilson College is a small 4-year liberal arts school outside of Asheville, North Carolina. Warren Wilson operates on The Triad of Education, Work, and Community Service. There are only about 1,000 people on campus and the student to teacher ratio is never more than 20:1. Even though the college is a liberal-arts based school, the science and agricultural sciences departments are strong and the professors challenge their students to think critically and logically. Because of this, our science students often get into their first choices of graduate schools. Warren Wilson is a work-study college, so in addition to taking classes, you work 15 hours a week in a specific job there are over 30 crews to choose from- everything from Farm crew to Carpentry or school newspaper crews. It sounds overwhelming, but you get used to it pretty fast as you settle into the college life and it is a great way of gaining work experience and life skills while you’re in college. Service, the last part of the triad. Warren Wilson requires 100 documented hours of service before Graduation. Now, this seems like a lot to ask of students, but if you think about it that is 25 hours per year or only 12.5 hours per semester; this seems very reasonable. The confidence and gratification that helping the community brings to you is worth the 100 hours of your time, and the hard work you’ve put in will build character and resumes.

    Warren Wilson has saved my life. It is at once the worse and best thing that could have ever happened to me in my life. This school has opened so many doors for me and I still have a year to go.
