What do you think about WWC? Does she enjoy it?
Warren Wilson is an excellent fit for her. Unlike her older sister, who is intense and driven (and found Bennington College a wonderful fit for her personality), Claire is laid back but accomplished. The school emphasizes academics, work (every student must have an on-campus job--that keeps the tuition 'reasonable'), and service (every student must complete a community service requirement before graduating). It tends to attract very liberal students interested in things like conservation, self-sufficiency (the school maintains a farm and raises much of its own meat and vegetables, and many students work it), international aid and activism of various kinds. So it isn't for everybody. The Sierra Club rated it number 3 in their list of "10 Coolest Colleges", but WWC also ranked number 2 in 'Reefer Madness" in the Princeton Review, LOL.
The campus is nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and is just beautiful. Claire's starting her second year there, and loves it.
