What We’re About
ITS Crew members are some of the most helpful folks on campus. Most come to Warren Wilson with very little technical experience and they learn valuable transferable skills along with technical skills in their time on Crew. They typically develop into people capable of finding solutions for all sorts of issues. Whether one has zero experience with technology or loves tinkering with Raspberry Pis or VPNs when schoolwork is done, one can find their place on ITS Crew. They deploy, support, and fix all computing and technology equipment and services at WWC with the guidance of ITS staff.
Crew members are mentored and taught by an ITS staff team that is dedicated to helping them grow and who model collaboration and leadership across skill sets.
Students in all majors succeed on this crew, from Creative Writing to Chemistry and Math. Those who wish to dive deeper in areas such as networking, coding, and educational technology will have the chance to do so as they level up in basic IT support and customer service skills and gain more experience on crew.
One thing I really enjoy about working on ITS is the fact that we get to interact with almost everyone on campus. After 3 years on the crew, most of the faculty and staff on campus know me. It’s a cool feeling. A big part of the job is problem solving. I’ve learned how to break big problems down into smaller problems and work on it from there to narrow down the list of possible solutions to find the right one.Mark Hendrick
There are too many things about my crew that I love but it has to be the people on ITS. Everyone is so kind and willing to help and be there when needed, and they are just fun to be around. I’ve learned so much, everything from customer service to the in and outs of technology. It’s a great crew if you’re looking to learn and grow.Jodie Karr
