What We’re About

As a member of the admissions crew, you showcase what it’s like to be a student at Warren Wilson to prospective students. You’ll host welcome tours, send postcards, and help facilitate admissions events that introduce our campus to students from around the world. Working closely with admissions counselors you will also help send out admissions packets, work on data entry, and answer phone calls.

I really like connecting with prospective students and learning why they want to come to Warren Wilson.

Student Leadership Opportunities

  • Crew Leader: The crew leader of the admissions crew takes on a training and administrative role. This person helps prepare for crew meetings, teaches their peers how to lead tours and work in the office, and works to keep the crew motivated and on track.

What You’ll Learn

You’ll spend years working alongside your peers with the mentorship of your supervisors.  Part of the experience of work at Warren Wilson is guided critical reflection, which helps ensure that you achieve both your own educational goals as well as our Common Learning Outcomes. These intentional learning outcomes distinguish our Work Program, giving it focus and relevancy that set it apart from a federal work-study or your average part-time job.

Our Common Learning Outcomes:

  • Professionalism & Work Ethic: accountability, effective work habits, punctuality, dependability, time management, integrity, and commitment to the well-being of the community.
  • Critical Thinking and Problem Solving: working with available resources to creatively address issues and solve problems, and gaining confidence to make decisions.
  • Communication: the ability to convey and receive information effectively with intentionality, honesty, and confidence in both speech and writing.
  • Collaboration & Teamwork: actively collaborate with peers to achieve common goals, Distribute labor fairly, and hold each other accountable as committed members of a group.
  • Civic Identity: understanding your active influence within the community and how your decisions directly impact the work around you.

In addition to our Common Learning Outcomes, each crew in the Work Program identifies crew-specific goals for learning and performance. These are reviewed with you each semester. Your crew-specific learning goals outline skills and abilities your supervisor will teach you during the semester.

Some of our Admissions Crew Learning Goals include:

  • Attention to detail
  • Stepping up levels of professionalism
  • Critical Thinking
  • Customer Service
  • Time Management
