A list compiled by Her Campus Team named Warren Wilson College among the nations top “Hippie Haven Colleges.” The real surprise might be that the Swannanoa, N.C.-based school ranked only No. 4.
From the web article:
If there’s one thing students at Warren Wilson care about, it’s sustainability. The school, which was named one of the top 10 greenest colleges in America by Popular Mechanics, supplies students with food from its own organic garden, uses hybrid cars, has a cafeteria compost program and uses sustainable farming practices (the campus is home to 300 acres of farmland). The most popular majors include English/creative writing and, of course, environmental science, for all of the nature lovers who call Warren Wilson home. Students love participating in activities such as yoga, poetry readings and community service.
The list also included Sarah Lawrence, Oberlin, Evergreen State and No. 1-ranked Bennington College. Read the full story here.
