Note from PJ Smith

A word from Brother PJ Smith about life at Wabash and now:

“As a student at Wabash College, I explored many a great opportunities to serve my fellow man. I was a member of the Junior Platoon Leader’s Class for the United States Marine Corps., a political science major, a javelin-thrower for the track and field team, a close friend and follower of cross country, a senior walk-on for the baseball team, and a volunteer manager for the football team. Wabash taught me, that in everything I do, to live following my passion and to serve others.

How did you learn it?

The latest class of Wabash students began their first round of classes this week. During the traditional ice cream social with the College President, the Public Affairs office snapped this photo. The caption jested at this student has “no lack of industriousness.” I think this picture is awesome and that it speaks volumes. Remember how you learned Old Wabash? It wasn’t on an iPhone!

Bobby Knight on Chadwick Court?!

 The Wabash Athletics Department has announced that former Texas Tech and Indiana University legend, Coach Bobby Knight, will be speaking at the College on Sunday, September 187.30pm at Chadwick Court.

Chances are you have a very, very good idea who Coach Knight is. If you’re a Hoosiers fan, he needs no introduction. For those that don’t know, Coach Knight has a shelf full of accolades including 800 victories, 29 years as Head IU Basketball Coach, NCAA titles as a player (The Ohio State), and several NCAA titles as Coach.  

If you’re in Crawfordsville or close enough to drive there, head to the College to hear what Coach Knight as to say. Chances are this is one of the more intimate venues in which you’ll get a chance to listen to him speak.

New Website Design: Cheers or Jeers?

Soccer Stadium!

It’s official. The new Mud Hollow Soccer Stadium is open for business. Many of us played soccer while at Wabash, so for you this will hit home especially so. For a release on the story, visit the Wabash Athletics coverage. By the way, part of this expense happened through the Athletics fund we posted about not too long ago. If you’re going to be back on campus for homecoming, swing by and check it out! The new baseball field (behind the Fieldhouse at the old practice football field) is also up and running.

New Online Digs

The College’s website will be revamped tomorrow. It’s been a longtime coming. The last time it was overhauled was right around the time we were freshmen! That’s old by any Internet-age standards!  Props to the IT, Marketing, Alumni Affairs, Admissions, Advancement, and Public Affairs departments for making this happen!

Good Review…

Recently, the Princeton Review issued is annual rankings. Most all of us are quite familiar with the impact of rankings on higher education. This list is formulated for schools who it considers as the top 376 colleges nationwide.  In addition to its inclusion in the 376 list, Wabash fared rather well from the Review. Here’s a link to the story from the College’s webpage.
