The Crew of Crews
The Work Program Office (WPO) Crew is the lifeblood of Warren Wilson College’s historic work program. Building customer service skills and professionalism while assisting staff — and their fellow students — the WPO Crew build skills that translate into almost any professional field. They also hold an enviable position — helping to plan one of Warren Wilson College’s largest and most cherished events: our annual Work Day.
Every April, students, staff and faculty gather as a community to work on projects normally too large to handle on a typical work day. But WWC’s annual Work Day is anything but typical. Projects this year included a collaboration between the Black Student Union and art faculty Lara Nguyen on a mural of social justice catalysts, a new sand volleyball court, and a postcard-writing campaign to welcome incoming and prospective students. Students on the Work Program Office Crew are integral to this incredible day coming together.
I enjoy the supervisors and constantly staying in contact with students and crew supervisors. I have learned how to master Google Sheets and Mail merges.Bailey Tipton
Being a part of the Work Program Crew has been one of the best experiences since I’ve started at Warren Wilson. The supervisors are always there to help you with any questions and they really make the work place fun. Working in the WPO has really taught me the importance of working on campus and I am grateful to be a part of the work program.Mary Yeager
