Fiske Guide Names Wabash a Top College

Wabash College is listed in the 2022 edition of the Fiske Guide to Colleges as one of the best and most interesting colleges and universities in the United States, Canada, Great Britain, and Ireland.

Now in its 38th year, the Fiske Guide uses the unique approach of including insight from current students and supplemental information to deliver an “insider’s view” to college-bound students and their parents.

Of the Wabash College experience, the Fiske Guide writes, “Wabash has not only prospered but also remained true to its conservative academic and social traditions, including the Gentleman’s Rule code of self-responsibility that students continue to live by… The Wabash Wabash College's Pioneer Chapel.educational program has certainly proved itself over the years. This small college has amassed an impressive list of alumni: executives of major corporations, doctors, lawyers, and a large number of Ph.D.s. Wabash alumni are typically faithful to their school in the form of generous donations. On a per-capita basis, the school’s $324 million endowment makes it one of the wealthiest in the nation.”

The guide spotlighted the threads of brotherhood and competition, campus traditions, and cross-cultural immersion learning courses, as well as the Little Giants’ athletic successes.

The Fiske Guide profiles more than 300 of the nation’s best colleges and universities, offering academic, social, and quality-of-life ratings for each school. Edited by Edward B. Fiske, former education editor for the New York Times, the guide is based on academic ratings, price category, quality of student life on campus, and additional factors.
