4 College Junior

Administration: As long as you are 21 and drinking in your room, there's no problem. Pub Safe is strict about alcohol at parties and anywhere outside of student rooms.

1 College Junior

Scholarships: I can't get any aid because of the amount of money my dad makes. But they don't take into account that I have 3 little siblings, and they all have to go to college too, and my parents can't pay for all of it.

Off-Campus Housing: I don't know much about off-campus housing, I prefer to live on-campus.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: There are no frats or sororities...So I can't really answer these questions.

3 College Junior

Athletics: I wish they had a volleyball team! Then it would be perfect.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Asheville is awesome. And it's only about 15 minutes from campus.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Don't live in Dorland. That's all I have to say.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I always feel very safe on campus. I have never once felt uneasy or threatened.

Campus Food: Gladfelter is really not as bad as some people say. Vegan/vegetarian options are always available and as a vegetarian, I'm very happy with the food I'm served. It kind of sucks when it's not mealtime, though. There are no vending machines and sage is so far away and everything else is closed.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Who wouldn't want to walk to class every morning with a view of the mountains? My favorite time is when there is a little bit of morning fog and the mountains are obscured partially or completely. It feels like Wilson is the only piece of land on earth. There is also tons of awesome landscaping and beautiful stuff here. Plus, we have swings! This school is the best on earth.

Academics: I'm an ENS major and although the entry level pre-req classes are really basic and boring, once you get past them the classes are AWESOME. This is a great place to study ENS/ biology in general because of the region we are in. I hear about new internship/research opportunities every day and our teachers are really cool and helpful. The AC in the science buildings is really spotty, but that's life here. The labs are also pretty decent and the library has an amazing science section.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I'm biased because I adore this school, but I think it's pretty freaking awesome!

College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't party, so I have literally no clue. I also rarely hear about parties, since I'm not into that scene, but I do know that some people are very into it and partake in it often.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I didn't really have to input any effort in order to get significant scholarship dumped into my lap. I needed to work hard for my outside sources, but Wilson basically did all of the work for me.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Almost all of the students here live on-campus, so off-campus housing isn't really a thing. Why would you want to move into Swannanoa anyway?

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: If you want off-campus dining, you pretty much have to go into Asheville. Swannanoa basically just has pizza and McDonald's, but in downtown Asheville there's something for everyone.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: Asheville is amazing. Their is always something going on their with plenty of good places to eat and shop. Swannanoa isn't the best, but there's an Ingles that gets the job done when you really want something to eat.

Administration: The admin, as a whole, are very lenient with the students. Obviously, if we are blatantly violating the rules, we are going to get in trouble because they are obligated to do something, but nobody really wants to call us out and if we go about our rule-breaking quietly, it's fine.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Most of the dorms have air conditioning and everyone dreads moving out of the freshman dorm (which is near Glad and classrooms), but I can't complain. The bathrooms can be gross, but that's life.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: It is what you make it. For some, it's life, but for people like me I barely take notice of it.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I've never had any issues with safety, although we do get the occasional black bear walking around.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Sexual assault is STRONGLY advocated against on campus and there are a lot of resources available for survivors. The health center is good, but not open in weekends, which is inconvenient.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: There's a lot of variety in housing, ranging from very old and cinderblock-y to new, spacious, and clean, to housing co-ops, and it's not hard to get into the dorm you want to after a semester or two. One great thing is that once you get a room you're happy with, you can continue to reclaim it until you leave.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Wilson has been life-defining for me. For all it's faults, Wilson is a once-in-a-lifetime experience I would never take back. I have learned so much about the world through my classes, my friends, and my work. I have been given leadership opportunities and taken on roles I never would have anticipated. The people I work with are absolutely amazing and give me hope for the world. Life at Wilson can sometimes be stressful, frustrating, or isolating, but it's ultimately worth it. One big things has been the support of professors and supervisors. They have really invested in me and pushed me to be my best.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Wilson students are known for not making a lot of money after they graduate, but it's not because they are not equipped to, it's because it's not a priority for them. Wilson students seek out careers that are meaningful to them and aren't concerned with the typical definition of success. Personally, I feel very equipped for jobs in the non-profit fields and for graduate school, eventually. My resume is absolutely packed after my time at Wilson.

Warren Wilson College
Warren Wilson College

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Warren Wilson is a wonderfully unique college. It tends to be described as something more than a college—students are not attracted here exclusively for the academic program, or even the work and service components. It is an experience more than an education, and what students learn here goes beyond any of their expectations. Because of this special “other” aspect, Wilson can’t be described properly in words, especially in the same categories as other schools.

When students visit, they tend to feel either an overwhelming attraction or a sincere repulsion, and we understand and respect both reactions. When it is right for someone to be here, they find a way to be here and help our community become as supportive and joyous as it can be. It certainly is not the right college for everyone, but the people who become Warren Wilson students hold this special place close to our hearts our entire lives, and are always thankful for the lessons learned and the people met in our little corner of Appalachia.
