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.
