We stand on the shoulders of giants.

All that we are is because of those who came before us. The history of Wabash College is made by those courageous enough to take bold, giant steps. Now, we are taking our biggest strides in history with the first of two campaigns to strengthen Wabash as we move confidently toward our bicentennial in 2032.

Giant Shoulders Needed. Ours and Yours.

We are searching for those who share our vision for what could be, willing to go all in, take the lead, and strengthen Wabash for our third century. In 1836, our first Wabash President, Elihu Baldwin, reminded us that "Our purpose is never to rest while Wabash College shall lack any advantages for the student, which are offered by the highest class of American colleges." What we start today will generate the momentum to carry that vision forward.

Whenever. Wherever. Wabash.

We've created this digital hub that makes our connection to alumni, parents, and friends stronger than ever. You'll find the events, experiences, and resources that bring Wabash together as we take #GiantStepsForWabash.
