Have fun. Develop leadership. Explore Your Passions. Let curiosity be your guide.

At Warren Wilson, clubs and organizations enhance the living-learning environment, giving you the opportunity to delve deeper into your interests, develop your leadership skills, and make friends. In addition to joining clubs that spark your interest, Student Activities provides you support and resources that empower you to start a club of your own.

How will you lead?

Warren Wilson students are not content to observe from afar. They dig in and are part of campus decision-making, resulting in an active, engaged community. A major promoter of student engagement is our Student Government Association (SGA). It’s the student body’s elected government, and in that role, they fund clubs, plan events, and advocate for students.

Another great way to get involved is by participating in an Outdoor Programs trip. You’ll develop friendships while exploring why Asheville has been dubbed the “Adventure Sports Capital of the Southeast”.

Student Activities

The Student Activities Office provides vibrant student life experiences both on and off-campus. We regularly bring bands, speakers, comedians, and more to campus. We also provide transportation to off-campus events in Asheville, helping you to take advantage of the diversity the city offers.

Some of Student Activities most popular events include:

  • Messtival: A festival of mess!
  • Annual Campus Circus: Showcase your talents in our annual, student-produced circus. Aerial silks, anyone?
  • Apple and Pumpkin Picking: We’ll take you off-campus to enjoy North Carolina’s seasonal activities
  • Tarwheels Rollerskating Night: When we turn Bryson Gym into a rollerskating rink! Disco ball optional.



I sincerely value the open-mindedness of the Warren Wilson community. Warren Wilson is a place that nurtures and celebrates the creative, different, and forward thinking… It is a place where individuals can flourish and develop into leaders.

Diversity and Inclusion

The Wilson Inclusion, Diversity, & Equity Office (WIDE) and Center for Gender and Relationships (CGR) support diversity and inclusion across campus. The commitment of students in these organizations contributes to understanding across campus.

Student Trustees

At Warren Wilson, two current students are official members of the Board of Trustees, the body that governs the College. Not only does this develop an amazing network and outstanding professional skills, but it ensures that the leadership of the College hears from the most important people at the college: You. In fact, it was student activism through the Board of Trustees that led to our commitment to divest our endowment from fossil fuels. (Photo: Ayla Rand, elected in 2016)
