Sagal, sun highlight 2014 Commencement

Rarely do temperatures dive into the 30s on the morning of Commencement in mid-May at Warren Wilson College. Even rarer is a commencement address by Peter Sagal, host of NPR’s “Wait Wait... Don’t Tell Me!”

But both came together nicely at Warren Wilson’s 2014 Commencement May 17 on Sunderland Lawn. After a chilly, foggy start to the day, a warm sun broke through for the College’s 46th Commencement as a four-year institution. And Sagal’s first college commencement speech shone just as brightly at the ceremony where 172 Warren Wilson graduates received their bachelor’s degrees.

Taylore Huntley receives Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship

Taylore Huntley, a junior from Mason, Mich., was awarded a Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship to support her academic work in the Czech Republic this summer. The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program offers grants for U.S. undergraduate students to pursue academic studies or credit-bearing, career-oriented internships abroad. Taylore was selected through a competitive, national process administered by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs at the U.S. Department of State.

Celebrate Critical Language Scholarship winners

Please join WWC’s International Programs Office in congratulating Marshall McCollum and Owen Harris on winning Critical Language Scholarships. The Critical Language Scholarship, a program of the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, offers intensive summer language institutes in 13 critical foreign languages. Marshall, a senior biology/ENS major, will travel to Dhaka, Bangladesh, to study Bengali language. Owen, a junior majoring in modern languages, will travel to Bursa, Turkey, to study Turkish language. Marshall and Owen were selected through a competitive, national process administered by American Councils for International Education.

WWC College Chapel

The Building of the Chapel: Beverly Ohler remembers

The Warren Wilson Presbyterian Church and College Chapel resides in a beautiful A-frame structure made of wood and rock. A campus treasure, it seems as new today as it did in 1964 when we opened its doors. On Sunday, May 18 we observed the 50th anniversary of its dedication. It was a wonderful day of celebration led by the Rev. Steve Runholt, and many alumni were in attendance. Read More
