    Warren Wilson is expensive at 34000$ per year but the work-program pays you for your work, which goes directly to your tuition, and over breaks you can stay and work for extra cash. Warren Wilson has a lot of conferences, talks, and live music to see during the week and on the weekends. This provides good entertainment and extra learning opportunities.

    Warren Wilson is priced in the same range as most private liberal arts colleges. It is at the lower end of the range, but private colleges tend to be really expensive no matter what. Tuition with a room and 3 meals a day comes out to around 34,000 per year if you get no financial aid. BUT, you will almost definitely have financial aid, at least to some degree. The school offers some aid, but not as much as more well-endowed (richer) liberal arts schools. I personally end up paying around 19,000 per year (including the cost of loans; it would be like 13,000 not counting loans), which is definitely a struggle, but I think it's worth it because of the overall experience that I couldn't get anywhere else.
