Students at Warren Wilson College learn to appreciate work as an important and meaningful part of their lives. They approach their adult careers looking for more than just a way to pay the bills — many of them go on to enrich their communities and change the world.

In economic hard times, the Triad of Academics, Work and Service provide new Warren Wilson graduates with tools to get jobs or to continue their education at the graduate level. Unlike their peers from other schools, Warren Wilson alumni leave the College with several years of marketable work experience. Add in their service, and it’s obvious why 75% of Warren Wilson students reported being employed full-time within 6 months of graduation (and 13.5% were in graduate school) — even during a time of national recession and high unemployment. They are confident, their résumés are impressive, and they have learned social skills in our tight-knit community. Most importantly, our graduates leave with a deep sense of civic responsibility and the desire to make a difference. Their record of finding work is not only a sign that they are financially stable — it is a sign that they are helping everyone around them.

By supporting Warren Wilson College — as a student, a donor, or a friend — you are helping us educate compassionate, informed citizens who go on to succeed in meaningful careers and dedicate themselves to lifetimes of service. By supporting our College, you are participating in a singular educational experience and contributing to the good our graduates do in the world. What you do really matters.
