Alumni Indianapolis Association of Wabash Men
The Indianapolis Association of Wabash Men serves the largest concentration of Wabash College alumni located in the Indianapolis metropolitan area. This constitutes around 2,000 alumni or nearly 20% of all alumni. The IAWM board encompasses a broad generational, geographical, and professional diversity. Annually, we sponsor several diverse and exciting events and services for the Wabash community.
Join us as we gather for camaraderie, enlightenment, celebration, and support of Wabash College and its students.
WABASH MAFIA - Wednesday, May 17, 2017
Location: The Koelschip
2505 N Delaware St.
Indianapolis, IN 46205
Just show up after work anytime after 5:30 p.m.
Come join fellow Wabash alumni and friends after work in Fall Creek Place. Chris Bly '06 and Jake Koeneman '06 opened The Koelschip more than a year ago. It's a beer, coffee, and wine bar featuring their Central State beers made with Brettanomyces yeast. It's right next door to Goose the Market if you're feeling like grabbing a tasty sandwich. Also, it's Taco Wednesday, so the La Margarita food truck will offer specials (weather permitting).
No need to RSVP. As usual, there's no program and no agenda. Just another opportunity to gather, meet, network, or schmooze.

We thank all of the those that have been instrumental to the success of Wabash Day over the past 12 years.
