Relationships have always been at the core of the Wabash experience — between students and their professors, alumni and the young men they mentor, and students working hard together in a constant pursuit of excellence.
Gifts to the Annual Fund
enable these relationships to flourish. In the classrooms and laboratories, on the playing fields, and on the Fine Arts Center stages — it is the annual generosity and support of alumni and friends that is vital to relationships that are the essence of Wabash.
Here are a few examples of how annual gifts impact the relationships that are central to Wabash men and their Wabash experience.
- Scholarships & Financial Aid. A contact between an alumnus and a prospective high school student or an admissions counselor and a prospective student is often the start of a young man’s relationship with Wabash. In the early stages of that relationship there is usually a conversation about the cost of a Wabash education. What it costs to educate each Wabash student is about half of what the College charges for tuition. Students can take advantage of numerous merit-based scholarships like the Top 10 and Top 20 scholarship programs — where awards range from $12,500 to $17,500 per year. Annual Fund support contributes to scholarships and need-based financial aid, and makes the Wabash experience affordable for students who might not be able to attend the College without some type of assistance.
- Teaching & Learning. The relationships between students and professors are at the heart of the Wabash learning experience. Wabash is able to maintain a 10:1 student-to-faculty ratio and an average class size of 13 students. In this rigorous academic environment, students are engaged with some of the finest teachers in the world.
- Immersion Learning Courses. Wabash remains committed to Immersion Learning Courses that take students off-campus — and outside their comfort zones — for up close and personal learning experiences with faculty every step of the way. Annual Fund gifts support these initiatives that provide life-changing experiences for current students.
- Student Life. Technology, advising, counseling, academic support, internships, athletics, and co-curricular opportunities — the list is endless in the far-reaching impact of Annual Fund support on student life and the ways relationships are fostered through various out-of-the-classroom opportunities.
