Fiske Guide Ranks Wabash Among the Best and Most Interesting

Wabash College is listed in the 2024 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 40th 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.

One of 300 international institutions highlighted, Wabash is among the best and most interesting colleges in the United States, Canada, Great Britain, and Ireland, according to the 2024 edition of the Fiske Guide to Colleges.The Fiske Guide writes that strong relationships with professors are central to the Wabash experience. “Students have the ability to form professional relationships with professors and often obtain help outside of the classroom when needed,” said one current student in the guide.

With 74% of classes having fewer than 20 students and a 9:1 student-to-faculty ratio, the Fiske Guide spotlighted Wabash’s academic environment. The guide highlighted Wabash’s campus traditions, cross-cultural immersion learning courses, the WabashX initiatives, the gorgeous Fuller Arboretum, and the Little Giants’ athletic successes.

Further, the Fiske Guide pointed out the College’s campus-wide mental health efforts with a mention that students “demonstrate a strong desire to fight the stigma around mental health,” according to a current student.

Edited by Edward B. Fiske, former education editor for the New York Times, 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.
