What You’ll Do

Do you love the energy of sporting events and the camaraderie of teams, even if you’re not an athlete? Students on the Athletics Crew support our varsity teams in competition while focusing on what they love about sports.

Within the three Athletic sub-crews, you have the opportunity to:

  • Record videos and stat keeping
  • Assist the Athletic Trainer with treatments and diagnoses
  • Create Athletic Marketing
  • Manage the Owls’ social media presence
  • Assist with Game Day management
  • Create and manage intramural leagues, tournaments, and pickup games
  • Maintain the upkeep of our Athletics facilities

I love being on my crew because teamwork and a sense of ownership coincide so well with the tasks we are expected to complete. I believe that being put into a unit where you have to form bonds with people that are not only your fellow employees, but classmates, really gives perspective into how relationships and professionalism are fundamental to your work environment being positive and productive. On my Crew I learned that my presence and efforts do matter and can significantly affect the team.

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.
