They are pretty good. Recently updated with a new OS and much faster. Always available to use in the labs, but wireless outside of labs is spotty all around campus.

There are three places to eat on campus, because it is such a small school there is not a lot of options, but Cow Pie Cafe has great vegetarian eats almost every day.

This school will give you incredible diversity if you're looking for a school that accepts everyone, however most people are upper-middle class privileged children.

Asheville is an amazing city, however it is 15-20 minutes away from campus. Unless you have a car it is almost impossible to get out and escape the Warren Wilson bubble.
College Freshman 2013-11-17T23:14:20Z
Asheville area has great weather, warm summers and cool winters with many beautiful days in between. Gotta love it.

Even though freshman housing isn't the best, overall living on campus at Wilson is alright. Almost everyone lives here (95%) so it is easy to hang out with upperclassmen on the weekends and get around easily.
College Freshman 2013-11-17T23:12:10Z
Warren Wilson college isn't for everybody. It's a very small school and its got a very specific feel.

As a vegan dining at Wilson is pretty great. Cow Pie has vegan options for lunch and diner on weekends and is always delicious. There are often local organic options from the campus farm or the surrounding community. Unfortunately on the weekends and breakfast the vegan options suck! Gladfelter tries but is a total bust most of the time for vegan/vegetarian options. For your average omnivore ive heard its pretty solid though. The light at the end of the tunnel for me is Sage cafe, open late at night and offering drinks, awesome grilled panini's, and desserts (many vegan WOOO!) and has concerts or events on most weekends. All in all you wont go hungry!

Campus activities at Warren Wilson are wicked unique. There's weekly meetings for Gender Discussion to Chemistry study group to Blacksmithing workshops and everything in between. On weekends you can choose from a variety of outings like a rock climbing trip with Outdoor Programs or volunteering with Food Not Bombs in Asheville, or stay on campus for a Wild Foods Walkabout or a concert at the pavilion. Anything you want to do is right at your fingertips and if not its easy to start your own!

Great drug scene, in certain circles people will want to smoke all the time and trip every weekend, others not, just depends who u end up around...it's all pretty safe since there's so little anonymity and u can pretty much trust stuff which is nice
College Freshman 2013-09-13T18:26:36Z
I mean pubsafe is hard on freshman. Don't smoke too close to the road or where everyone is being super loud and bright. Keep it lowkey... after freshman year anything goes.. smoking in dorms, general consensual wildness... unless you're hardcore dealing the police will never get involved.
College Freshman 2013-09-13T18:24:25Z
I can see how people get tired of the same old stuff week after week... but so far the variety's decent. There's always scoop-your-own ice cream and something to be excited about... if u like undercooked overdressed vegetables (veg*n) cowpie can be good. I like eating here. I like the cafeteria vibe. All the flavors and textures are there and it's easy.
College Freshman 2013-09-13T18:21:30Z
I was really hoping for a less numb, fluorescent, lecture-y vibe coming here, but that's a lot of what it still is. High school with surprise homework... and some cool experiential stuff. Difficulty depends on ur course load. You have to take lots of prereqs to get into anything cool.

Health & Safety:
Warren Wilson has a very safe campus. Everyone feels welcome and friendly towards one another. I have never felt unsafe or put in any questionable situations.

Warren Wilson has strong academics. The students are constantly forced to work hard inside and outside of the classroom.
College Junior 2013-07-10T05:21:47Z
You can always find some good options to eat. Our vegan cafe is better than our buffet style cafeteria, but there are a lot of options for anyone to find something. But some times the option are a little repetitive.
College Junior 2013-07-10T05:19:53Z
Some areas have stronger academics than others. Programs like science, ODL, and creative writing are strong, but there are other programs, such as business, that really struggle. I say all in all you get out of it what you put in. The teachers are passionate about what they teach if you're willing to work hard and learn from them.

The fall at Warren Wilson will take your breath away because it's so beautiful. When it's nice out in the spring and summer everyone is always outside enjoying nature. Winter can be a little dreary, but it's really not that bad. It gets cold, but not too cold. We get some snow, but it just makes the campus even more beautiful.
College Freshman 2013-04-16T19:25:21Z
I got wonderful financial aid offered just on my application and additional short-essay art and leadership scholarships gave me essentially a free ride aside from a couple thousand dollar loan. If you go meet your admissions counselor and talk about your talents or something they're more likely to recommend you for scholarships...also anything awarded lasts all four years so youll be set as long as you talk to a few people

I have had good experiences with professors (for the most part). However, my academic advisor is in the music department (which I have no interest in), so at times I feel that he is unable to help me in my academic endeavors because they do not coincide with his experience/knowledge. The work load is intense, and because we are a work college, we need to learn to balance it. But, I think I have benefited from this. Also, attending a work college allows us to build our resumes during school, which is great. Plus, we are learning a lot of things outside the classroom as well.
College Sophomore 2013-04-09T20:23:35Z
There is very little cultural diversity on Warren Wilson's campus. Though the students have had very interesting experiences, most are white and upper/middle class. However, I found the campus to be extremely accepting to people of all ethnic backgrounds and sexual orientations. But, not much cultural diversity is found on campus.
College Sophomore 2013-04-09T20:21:10Z
Entering college, I was an Anthropology major. The faculty are very knowledgable and have fascinating experiences from their field work that they are eager to share. The are accessible, and state their office hours on the syllabus, making it easy to meet with them and discuss any concerns. From my experience, class was always engaging and interesting. During my first semester, I had the chance to perform a mini ethnography which allowed me to gain first hand experience as an Anthropologist. However, because of the lack of cultural and social diversity on campus (and off), there was little to explore in that realm. Also, I did not benefit from the isolation of Warren Wilson College, and felt culturally disconnected and deprived quite frequently.

The freshmen dorms are not very good do to their small size and coed bathrooms. the upperclass dorms are a lot better since they are bigger and there's a bathroom
College Freshman 2013-04-05T17:48:53Z
Warren Wilson is an amazing school! There are lots of things to do in Asheville and I love it.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
