Warren Wilson College
We decided to visit this unique school outside of Asheville, NC because we were so close. It is a very special place in which students experience college through a triad of academic work, community service and crew work. The enrollment is under 1,000 and every student has a job, from blacksmithing to haircutting, to make the campus run. Interesting! Big on sustainability, organic farming and recycling, I'll bet graduates have built in work experience that makes them especially desirable to future employers.
Photos are of: the admissions patio, the blacksmithing cottage, the newspaper and crew assignment cabin and the library.
