It’s coming! Or, as some weather junkies say, it’s back!
Though our class was not around in 1976, those of us from Indiana and the Midwest likely have heard our folks talk about the “Blizzard of ’76.” At this moment the National Weather Service has described this week’s winter storm as “catastrophic,” affecting “over one-third of the U.S. population.” Some have said this storm will be remembered much like that one a few decades ago.
On this subject: Remember those days at Wabash when we thought the College must cancel class (?). Nope. Doesn’t happen.Lecture by candlelight if it get’s the Wabash job done.
We’re left to wonder – will this be our ’76? Will we tell our kids, nephews, or nieces about this storm when they gripe about 2 inches of snow?
The Wabash Indoor track and field team scored 7 – yes, SEVEN – number ones to win the NCAC relay championship. Check out the story at Wabash’s website.
We don’t have to ask ‘remember when?’ on that one.
This past week, the class of 2011 wrapped up their oral comps. Regardless of the eternal “D1 classes versus D2 classes versus D3 classes” squabble, I think we can say that we’re glad those days are behind us.
While some things in our lives may have greater significance than our comps, remember that they were no small undertaking. If you can get through capstone exams like we did, don’t sell yourself short on other challenges.
Besides, how often will you get asked questions like “Provided that there are scientific laws, are there historicist laws, or laws produced by historical trends?”
If you’re following this blog from time to time and find this post, let’s hear what your most memorable comp moment was. Did you have 3.00 a.m. runs to the Quickmart? How about early morning rushes to Diggers? Random trips to Wal-Mart or hitting up the dollar menu at Wendy’s? Scared stiff or suppressed memories?
Not too long ago, the College announced a new license plate.
Those alumni that voted chose a new design for the n ext generation Wabash license plate. It’s a pretty nifty “W” design.
That theme seems to be one that’s picking up steam. If you’d like one, head on over to the special on the Wabash website.
We’ve pasted an image of the new design in this post. The plate idea is a great twofer: (1) you can ‘Bash your car and (2) you can donate toward the College. Pretty good deal.
