Founded in 1832, Wabash College is a private liberal arts college for men located in Crawfordsville, Indiana. Its mission is to educate men to think critically, act responsibly, lead effectively, and live humanely.
Wabash’s liberal arts curriculum includes 23 majors, with strong pre-professional programs in health sciences, law and business. Wabash, jointly with Columbia and Washington universities, offers a 3-2 engineering program, as well as a strong teacher education program. The College draws young men from approximately 30 states and 24 countries.
Students at Wabash follow only one rule, the Gentleman’s Rule: “A Wabash man will conduct himself, at all times, as a gentleman and responsible citizen.” Consequently, Wabash students enjoy more freedom than students at other colleges and universities across the nation. The students’ ability to make the link between the trust the College places in them and the responsibility that goes with such freedom helps them lead wise and productive lives.
Outside the classroom, Wabash offers a wide range of activities, including 10 national fraternities, workshops, seminars, visiting artists and lecturers, films, music, theater, forensics, and intramural sports. Wabash men are also active in community service projects ranging from on- and off-campus mentoring, tutoring and coaching, to fund-raising for local non-profit agencies.
