Abstract:
Warren Wilson College, located about ten miles east of Asheville near Swannanoa, is a unique four-year coeducational college which boasts a wide variety of ethnic groups. It was founded ninety years ago by the United Presbyterian Church as the Asheville Mountain Farm School For Boys. The 460 students also work fifteen hours a week learning carpentry, electrical work, plumbing, landscaping, painting, cooking, office skills, gardening, forestry, and photography. The 1,070-acre campus is becoming self-sufficient because students maintain a 300-acre farm located on the campus.
