Cody Bevelhimer ‘24

Class of 2025, my name is Cody Bevelhimer and I want to welcome you to Wabash College! I am a sophomore from Zionsville, Indiana, and I’m excited to help you get accustomed to Wabash as an Orientation Mentor. Though I haven’t officially decided, I plan on majoring in Music and minoring in Film/Digital Media as well as Asian Studies. Post college, I hope to be an audio engineer with a focus in live music. I’m a member of the Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI) fraternity on campus, as well as the lacrosse team and, in the future, the Orchestra as well. My first year on campus has been a different one, but I still learned way more than I expected. If I could suggest one thing as you enter the world of Wabash, it would be to get involved! Your college experience, especially here, is defined by how much effort you put into it. If you put yourself out there and apply yourself, you’ll get more out of the amazing alumni network and the career service counselors this college has to offer. I look forward to meeting you guys on campus this year, never be afraid to reach out if you have any questions, and as always… Wabash Always Fights!

Greetings, Gentlemen! My name is Alex Rotaru and I am a senior from Bucharest, Romania. I am an Independent, majoring in Chemistry and minoring in Gender Studies. I am also the President of the Chemistry Club, a Democracy Fellow with Wabash Democracy and Public Discourse, a Global Health Initiative Fellow, the Opinion Editor for The Bachelor, and a Son of Wabash - which is a student ambassador to the alumni. Coming in, I highly encourage you to explore and get to know as many people as you can on this campus - this is a new environment, where opportunities abound from the second you set foot on this campus.

Another thing you should do is get in touch with Career Services as soon as you can; I certainly did, which resulted in me interning at the Montgomery County Health Department freshman year and being selected to do the classroom capacity measurements for the college sophomore year. Finally, know that everyone around here will do everything in their power to support you, and help you become a better person, scholar, athlete, and professional. Feel free to reach out to anyone you would like to know. I, for one, am always open to talking to new people, and getting to know their stories.
