Admissions & Financial Aid Student Life at Wabash
Clubs and Organizations
The Wabash College Student Senate recognizes up to 70 clubs and organizations each year, and manages a budget of nearly $400,000 annually. Imagine an activity, and there is surely a Wabash club to support it.
Wabash played and won the first intercollegiate football, basketball, and baseball games ever played in Indiana. And the Little Giants have been winning championships ever since. Wabash offers 12 intercollegiate varsity sports and a very competitive intramural program.
While not a sprawling college town, the city of Crawfordsville is safe and welcoming to Wabash students, faculty, and staff. Named one of Indiana's Stellar Communities, the city is working with Wabash officials to develop trails to and through the College that will link Wabash to the Fusion 54 downtown co-working space (Wabash students work on the third floor) as well as to nine miles of trails for biking and hiking.
Health, Wellness, and Counseling
Wabash men are busy and successful, which is why we are committed to each student's personal health and well-being. The College's Student Health Center is open every weekday for routine appointments, and there are after hours clinics in town. The College's two counselors direct the work of the Student Counseling Center, and other activities are led by the Campus Mental Health Committee. The College's Wellness Program includes a wide range of activities — from aerobics to yoga to strength and conditioning. Students with disabilities can get assistance through the Academic Centers for Excellence.
Wabash's stunning Fine Arts Center is home to the Art, Music, and Theater departments. In addition to majors and minors in those subject areas, all students can choose to participate in a wide range of music ensembles, including our 125-year-old Glee Club, and take private lessons. Students can participate in theater as actors, directors, writers, or designers in one-act and main stage theatrical productions. The Visiting Artists Series brings big name performers to the College — all free to Wabash students.
Wabash men enjoy serving others, which is why all first year students take part in a county-wide day of service during the very first week they are on campus. Opportunities abound — from on-campus tutoring and mentoring programs to working in local schools and non-profits.
