Steps to Orientation
Congratulations again on your acceptance to Warren Wilson College. Your admission is a reflection of your hard work and shared values. We’re excited to work with you on the next steps.
Coronavirus & Your College Decision
We recognize that the Coronavirus Pandemic is disrupting daily life for everyone and creating financial hardships for many. We’re here to support you through your decision-making process.
While campus is closed this Summer, we intend to reopen and host students for the Fall semester.
We have content and virtual opportunities to help you to experience life as a Warren Wilson College Owl from the comfort of your home. Check out our Accepted Student Showcase content. You can also schedule a virtual visit, and, as always, contact the Office of Admissions at firstname.lastname@example.org or (800) 934-3536 with any questions.
Get to Know Your Classmates
We’re planning and preparing to ensure the safety of our community. Part of these precautions include a change to our calendar, so New Student Orientation is now set to begin on Monday, August 10 with new students moving in on a rolling basis from Friday, August 7-10. Transfer students will move in on August 11. Allowing move-in to happen over several days will allow new students and family to maintain social distance as they move through the residence halls. You will be assigned a move-in slot once you’ve completed the Room Selection Survey (below) and been assigned to a residence hall. Residence Hall assignments will be ready by July 1. Thank you for being patient and flexible as we all work around the difficulty of social distancing and new safety practices!
There is a lot (A LOT!) of important information on this page, and there’s a lot to do in preparation for Orientation on August 10. It will take you a while to get through it, and it will require you to think, to write, to dream… We recommend that you work on these tasks in short intervals, over a few days, to give yourself ample time to read it thoroughly, have discussions with friends and family, and consider what you want out of your experience at Warren Wilson College.
Some of these steps can be confusing, so please read carefully. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to email or call: (800) 934-3536.
Look for the purple notes – these are instructions just for you.
