The academics are as hard as you make them. Some people here seem to be hardly interested in academics and others eat sleep and breathe them. It just depends on your major and engagement.

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.
