It's been an interesting few years at warren. Met many colorful people in my time their. A wide variety of different ideologies and personalities. People talking till 4 or 5 in the morning about the prison system, the military, government, world war 2 politics, and a bunch of other topics. These students can be frustrating at times but damn are they smart. Its been tough but worth it and I don't regret my time at warren at all.
If I never leave this campus again as long as I live, it will still be too soon. I. Love. This. School. The classes are relatively small, so professors have time to answer my questions. The campus is beautiful beyond my ability to describe, and I have been a poet for more than half my life, and the people here are my fiercest, most loyal friends.
Warren Wilson College provided a unique and fulfilling college experience. I was able to learn in multiple settings. I loved going hiking on campus and going down to the farm. I enjoyed the work and services aspects and feel that I received a holistic education.
Warren Wilson is a very interesting college.
Unsurprisingly, considering the area it is in, Wilson is a very independent and liberal school; you'd never know the school once had an affiliation with a church or any type of structured institution - for that matter. I could go on trying to sound intelligent but, to be honest, there's no point.
Everyone here has something to be offended/triggered about; about 98% of the student population here are social justice warriors.
The school is broke, expensive, and uses mandatory student labor as a means of 'problem-solving'.
The academics are lacking, poorly executed, and a majority of the staff probably attended Woodstock.
The cafeterias serve awful (albeit local) food and half the appliances they 'provide' for students rarely work.
Living on campus is awful; my dorm had neither working AC or heating, the hot water was a hit-or-miss anytime of day, and there is practically no campus security past 5 p.m.
Warren Wilson may be loved by some but I would NOT recommend this school to anyone who wanted my opinion. You can find much cheaper, structured, and beneficial education elsewhere.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Warren Wilson College is 81%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
Being chronically ill, I had to put off going to college for a couple years. Because of that, I don't think I have taken the learning experience for granted like a lot of other freshmen have. I've met some of the most loving, beautiful, caring people at this school--most of whom would literally give you the shirts off their backs. I've learned more in one semester than my entire senior year of high school, and I'm anxious to keep the ball rolling and soak up as much information as these devoted teachers have to give.
There isn't much diversity. I wish more people of different states of mind and perspectives would attend the college instead of environmentally-focused, non-conformists.
The work program, the service learning, the small classes, the green focus, the campus, and the people.
The faculty is somewhat limited.
Easy going usually well prepared, fun.
This school is a great place for people who are ready to move on from the typical atmosphere of college-aged youth of the day. There are no fraternities or sororities here and there's no football team. People who attend WWC should be ready to be a little bit more independent than most college students and to walk the environmentalist walk that WWC students walk. To survive at WWC, students have to be able to multi-task and handle a pretty broad spectrum of "duties", from academics to community service to work to socializing.
The small class sizes
Preppy kids that want to be in a fraternity, people that want to hang out at the mall, people that have never worked before, and people that don't socialize should not go to this school.
Hard-working liberal hippie haven with fiery views about environmental protection and sustainability.
Warren Wilson College is best known for its service learning and dedication to environment.
I'm often (well, at least a couple times a year) asked, "Will I get into Warren Wilson College?" And I usually reply, "Why do you want in?" I'm not trying to be glib, but the reality is that your motive for wanting to attend Warren Wilson is important to those of us in the Admission Office who make decisions about who we admit. Of course we look at grades, test scores, and high school course selection, and we read each and every essay and letter of recommendation. But your motive is what sometimes makes the difference. You need to know -- Why Warren Wilson.
The fact that you are reading this probably bodes well for you. The fact that you have explored the web site this deeply illustrates how hungry you probably are for information.
As we state in our viewbook, "Warren Wilson is not for everyone." Some other small colleges seem to preach to college-bound students as if you are all alike. Well, I've meet very few "alike" students at Warren Wilson. This college is so unique that we scare some students away the minute they read a piece of our literature, and that's okay. The idea of working hard in a campus job, performing service for the community, and balancing a full load of tough academics along with work and service might not seem like the sort of college experience many of your classmates are looking for. But that's the point - - we're not for everyone. The selection process starts with your interest in finding the right match, and if you have read our material, you are well on your way to being able to tell us if you are a match -- and why you want in.
Just because we appear to be a little laid back and are very open minded doesn't mean we are a place to hang out and have fun and do just as you please. (Well, let me clarify, there is a lot of fun, but it is after a lot of hard work.) We are not an alternative to college; we are a college that does things alternatively.
So, in answer to your question, will I get in . . . yes. If. If you are a solid academic student, if you are someone who cares about making a difference in the world (not just through words but through actions), if you are environmentally aware, and if to you, service means what you can offer others (and learn while serving) and not how fast you can get fries to go with a customer's coke. And if you can work really hard and work really well with others. Yes, you'll get in.
Not enough diversity of opinion or race represented on campus.
