Virtual Discovery Day, as a live event, has passed, but please have a look at the videos below. We’ll be hosting another live Discovery Day again soon.

Warren Wilson College integrates the liberal arts with Community Engagement and Work experiences to prepare students not only for professional success, but also a life of meaning.

Curious about what we have to offer?

We’ve reimagined our Discovery Day at Warren Wilson College so that you can experience virtually what life is like as a student here. You’ll learn more about our on-campus Work Program, Community Engagement, academic programs, financial aid, and Warren Wilson’s personal and holistic approach to advising through our Center for Integrated Advising and Careers. You’ll also have an opportunity to speak to some of our current students during a live student panel!

Links for each session will be added below soon, so continue checking back as our Discovery Day approaches. You’re also welcome to “drop in” anytime throughout the day to ask our Admission Counselors any questions that you might have!
