Congratulations are in order once again for Swannanoa’s Warren Wilson College, which has landed a spot in the Top 20 “Best Buy” Colleges for 2022. Warren Wilson is one of only 10 private colleges to make the “Best Buy” list, compiled by the Fiske Guide to Colleges. This is the 16th time that Warren Wilson has received “Best Buy” recognition.
“Best Buy” schools are colleges and universities that, in the judgment of the editors, offer “outstanding educational value as determined by academic quality in relation to the net cost of attendance.” Warren Wilson received high marks for its North Carolina Free Tuition Plan, which guarantees that NC residents who qualify for federal or state need-based financial aid can attend Warren Wilson tuition-free for all four years.
Other factors highlighted by the Fiske Guide include Warren Wilson’s status as one of only eight four-year colleges in the nation that has a required work program for all residential students, which helps keep tuition low. The quality of student life was given a five-star rating, and special note was made of Warren Wilson’s commitment to the environment, and to community service and engagement.
