Plan Your Visit –
Virtual or In-Person

As we continue working to keep you and our community as safe as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have changed the way campus visits work. You can choose either to attend a Virtual Information Session led by one of our Admission Counselors, or you can visit in-person for an outdoor Campus Tour, with all the social distancing, masks, and protocols that will help keep you safe.

As part of our effort at keeping tour groups small (8 people or less), we’re currently limiting campus tours to only those interested in starting classes in 2021 or 2022 — usually high school juniors or seniors or those interested in transferring from another school. Younger students are encouraged to attend a virtual session and check back next year for expanded tour opportunities.

A visit to Warren Wilson College is a two-hour session that includes both a student-led campus tour and an optional interview with an admission counselor. These sessions are offered at least twice each weekday, in the morning and afternoon, with the exception of College holidays. In addition to the two-hour session, those interested in Athletics can meet with a coach.

If you’d like to further personalize your visit, please indicate your preferences when scheduling, and we will gladly customize your experience to the best of our ability.
