Watch as the Class of 2025 participates in this annual rite of passage.

4:45 PM – 41st LaFollette Lecture, Salter Hall, Fine Arts Center

Professor of Biology Amanda Ingram will present Shaped by History: Plants, Polyploidy, and People. This lecture series was established by the Wabash College Board of Trustees to honor Charles D. LaFollette, their longtime colleague on the Board. A successful businessman, Mr. LaFollette was a devoted friend of the humanities and the arts. The LaFollette Lecture is given by a Wabash College faculty member who is charged to address the relation of his or her special discipline to the humanities, broadly conceived. A reception will follow in Littell Lobby.

Event is free and open to the public.
