School Notes:

  • Founded in 1832, Wabash College is an independent, liberal arts college for men with an enrollment of 850 students. Its mission is excellence in teaching and learning within a community built on close and caring relationships among students, faculty, and staff.
  • The 60-acre wooded campus contains 25 buildings predominantly of Georgian architecture. Caleb Mills taught the first class of Wabash students in 1833 in Forest Hall, located since 1965 at the north end of campus and now home to the Teacher Education Department. Built in 1836, Caleb Mills'House hosts various college functions. Also built in 1836, Hovey Cottage, home to the College's second faculty member Edmund O. Hovey, houses the Wabash Center for Teaching and Learning in Theology and Religion. The College dedicated the newly expanded and renovated Fine Arts Center in 1993. The Detchon Center for Modern Languages and International Studies, housed in an expanded and renovated campus landmark built in 1893, is a state-of-the-art facility. During the Campaign for Leadership, Wabash built Hays Hall, the $30 million home of the biology and chemistry departments; renovated Goodrich Hall, which is home to the mathematics and physics departments; built a $2 million Malcolm X Institute for Black Studies; and built the $20 million Allen Athletics and Recreation Center.
  • Wabash offers 21 majors in Art, Biology, Chemistry, Classics, Economics, English, French, German, Greek, History, Latin, Mathematics, Music, Philosophy, Physics, Political Science, Psychology, Religion, Rhetoric, Spanish, and Theater. Students may choose a double major, a 3-2 engineering program with Columbia University or Washington University (St. Louis); or a 3-3 program in law with Columbia University. Students interested in secondary education may participate in the Ninth Semester Teach Education Program.
