What kind of man do you want to be?


Part of the Wabash ethos is the education of the model man, a philosophy distilled into a single code: ‘The student is expected to conduct himself at all times, both on and off the campus, as a gentleman and responsible citizen.’ Nuff said. The code is a very real part of student life, from academics to the athletic fields.
