A leader in original undergraduate research

The North Carolina Academy of Science, established in 1902, “promotes public appreciation of science, science education, scientific research and a meaningful role for science in public policy.” Its Collegiate Academy, or CANCAS, is a community of undergraduate students and faculty advisers that annually recognizes outstanding undergraduate research through grants and awards.

May 5-6: Warren Wilson’s Sixth Annual Academic Capstone Carnival

The Sixth Annual Academic Capstone Carnival is May 5-6 on campus. The Academic Capstone Carnival showcases the culminating research projects and internships of our senior class in a conference atmosphere. For two days, the third floor of Jensen is taken over by panels of students from 14 departments.

The Capstone Carnival has become a traditional rite of passage – no less an essential part of Warren Wilson’s culture than freshman Service Day or the annual Work Day. The presentations you will see and hear highlight the creativity that comes from students’ experiences combining the insights from different disciplines, from allowing the experiences of Academics, Work and Service to spill into and over each other, and from transcending the boundaries between the classroom and the community.

See the schedule here and support our students’ academic endeavors.

2014 Commencement

The 2014 Warren Wilson College Commencement on May 17 will be the 46th at which the College has awarded bachelor’s degrees. As usual, the ceremony will begin at 10 a.m. on Sunderland Lawn, weather permitting. Peter Sagal, host of NPR’s long-running show “Wait Wait...Don’t Tell Me,” will deliver the commencement address. You can find more information on Commencement here.
