Class of 2027, my name is Cody Bevelhimer, and I want to welcome you to Wabash College! I am a Senior from Zionsville, Indiana, and I’m ecstatic to help you get accustomed to Wabash as one of your Orientation Mentors. Here at Wabash, I’m studying Music with a minor in Film/Digital Media and Philosophy. Once I graduate, I hope to be an audio engineer focusing on live sound. I’m a member of the Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI) fraternity on campus, the Chamber Orchestra, and the Sphinx Club, where I work as the Vice President. My first few years here on campus were very different. My first year was amid Covid-19, my sophomore year was pretty much back to normal, but my junior year was full of everything you’ve heard of before coming here.  If I could suggest one thing as you enter the world of Wabash, it would be spending time with the people around you! Your college experience, especially here, can be looked back at through the memories you share with the people you surround yourself with. If you put yourself out there, you’ll find the people you click on within due time. Make sure you do not stand at the back of the crowd; it’ll serve you better to stand T.A.L.L. I hope to see all of you guys around campus this. Don’t be a stranger; reach out if you ever need anything! WAF!!!

Welcome, class of 2027. My name is Jack Bohrer. I’m a sophomore from Zionsville, IN, planning to be a psychology major and a political science and religion double minor. After graduating from Wabash, I plan to join the Army for a few years before joining the FBI as a profiler. I am currently an associate rush chair at Tau Kappa Epsilon and on the lacrosse team. If there is any lesson I wish I had learned before coming to Wabash, it would be to buy into everything you do here. Wabash is a school where you can do a lot of amazing things, but you must be willing to put your heart into everything you do here, whether that is sports, academics, Greek life, or a club. I look forward to meeting all of you over the course of the next few years. If you have any questions or need anything, please feel free to reach out, and remember, WABASH ALWAYS FIGHTS!!
