Warren Wilson College | TOP TEN: AMERICA'S COOLEST SCHOOLS


Courtesy of Stan Cross

As part of Warren Wilson's put-on-your-boots-and-grab-a-shovel philosophy, students grow trees, alfalfa, and corn and raise cows, pigs, and chickens on the school's 250-acre farm in Asheville, North Carolina. Above, students load a composter with kitchen waste. The resulting humus will be used in the College Garden to grow more produce for the cafeteria. Score: 76.8
