The Experience Indiana Trips and Events program sponsors travel to and participation in culturally significant activities within the state of Indiana. The goal of these trips is to improve knowledge of Indiana culture within the Wabash Community. Experience Indiana trips are intended to serve the Wabash community at large, in contrast to trips that are limited to students enrolled in a specific course (course based excursions are funded through the Know Indiana component of the Indiana Quality of Life Grant).Trips to state parks, historical sites, museums, local festivals, concerts, and cultural venues such as theatres, symphonies, etc. are a few of the possible activities that the Experience Indiana Trips and Events program will sponsor.
The Experience Indiana portion of the Quality of Life in Indiana Grant is excited to support a speakers and artists series. The Experience Indiana Speakers and Artists series is meant to supplement the successful visiting artists and visiting lecture series that currently exist on campus; however it differs in that Experience Indiana emphasizes local speakers and artists. The goal of the series is to counter the unfortunate and unintentional message that it is necessary to import artists and scholars from outside the local community. There is a wealth of cultural resources within Indiana. Experience Indiana aims to promote such resources.
