Review Warren Wilson College
Wilson is an amazing college. It's on a beautiful campus, the academics can be quite rigorous, and the social atmosphere is lovely. I came here because this is a place where you can work one on one with the head of a department and get your work published as a sophomore. At other colleges, publishing is for the grad students and professors, and any help you put into their research and work, you won't get the credit. Here at Wilson, you do. Last year, Wilson helped me score an internship at the United Nations doing work on human rights and next semester they're letting me be a research assistant. I'm super excited. But you have to want this stuff. You have to want to put the work in and be engaged and ambitious.
Wilson is a very unique place that isn't for everyone, most people strongly advise one to visit before committing. That being said, I didn't visit and attending Wilson was one of the best decisions I've made in my life. The student body and faculty and staff is a community like no other. The triad gives you experiences you don't have elsewhere. If you don't have a strong sense of responsibility you can easily cultivate it here, very few make it out without some sense of responsibility. You have the chance to make the most out of any possible college experience. The area is very rich culturally and allows you to take your education in whatever direction you choose. The staff work with you to help you do exactly what you want to do.
The good: hiking trails, the work program, service, the river, my classes, vegan food, local food, downtown asheville is just a short drive away (if you have a car or a friend with a car), nice people, community is very accepting of all backgrounds and all identities. The bad: no community feel living in Sunderland, no shuttles or buses from campus to downtown or black mountain or even grocery store, some weekends there is not much going on party wise, no vegan pizza in Glad, expensive tuition, very small student body compared to most colleges.
