Warren Wilson College is No. 3 among Sierra Magazine’s "10 Coolest Schools" nationwide in the fight against global warming. The feature is the cover story of the November/December issue of the magazine, published by the Sierra Club.
In the article titled "10 That GET IT," Sierra writes of Warren Wilson:
"This small Southeast star wears its environmental ethos on its sleeve and backs it up with a sustainably managed farm, garden and forest that provides food and timber for the campus; streetlamps that reduce light pollution; and community service as an integral part of the curriculum." WWC is easily the smallest college among the Top 10 schools.
The magazine’s editor in chief notes that "our staff cast a wide net and scrutinized an enormous array of data in determining which colleges and universities were showing the most initiatives in taking on the challenges of global warming. As the nation’s oldest and largest environmental organization, the Sierra Club salutes Warren Wilson College’s determination to demonstrate strong environmental values."
