4 College Senior

Administration: The community here is incredibly tight nit and the administration plays a role in that. The rules are in place with safety in mind, and most public safety officers and RAs enforce them with safety as their goal. Sometimes an RA or RD gets a little power hungry, but mostly they're pretty reasonable since they're your peers.

3 College Junior

Administration: Not too strict, but that also means they aren't really great at helping when you do need them.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I haven't had an issue with the administration here, but many of my friends have. One person got a noise complaint at two in the afternoon on a tuesday for playing music in his room

3 College Junior

Administration: They are strict about having parties. I wish we could have larger pets although I understand the concern.

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.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Warren Wilson prides itself on its more realistic approach to campus discipline. RAs and RDs are likely to look the other way of minor violations if no one’s safety is compromised but won’t hesitate to intercede respectfully if a resident is being unsafe or unhealthy. You are more likely to have a sit-down talk with residence life staff than you are to be written up. If you are written up, you head to a more serious talk with the Dean of Students.

There is a desire by the staff to work through problems with the student rather than punish and ignore them. No one in the student life offices wants to get anyone expelled, and most mediations lead to appointments with the counselor on staff that deals with substance abuse as opposed to punishment-style actions. That being said, there are some issues that require police intervention, suspension, or expulsion, and the safety, security, and health of students at Wilson is by no means compromised by the administration or the students. Violations that should be taken seriously are, and more minor transgressions are treated in a more lenient manner.
