Wabash prepares young men to meet their futures with intelligence, confidence, and clarity of purpose. A Wabash education brings out the best in young men through its rigor, and a community of mentors and friends—from faculty and staff to peers and alumni—provide the system of support for students to rise to the Wabash challenge. The Schroeder Center for Career Development helps students identify and execute plans to become productive and fulfilled men after Wabash.
The outcomes of Wabash men are diverse. They become doctors, lawyers, scientists, teachers, executives, and entrepreneurs. They attend some of the best graduate and professional schools in the world. They work in major corporations or launch their own startups. But from diversity comes a shared Wabash experience: a commitment to the liberal arts, distinctive opportunities to lead, and the lifelong Wabash brotherhood.
Unapologetic Liberal Arts
When a doctor understands the values of his patient, when a lawyer uncovers surprising analogies between cases, when a scientist identifies the social consequences of his research, when a businessman makes a 10-page proposal more persuasive in two pages—these men execute the virtues and skills of a liberal arts education. A Wabash education develops a young person’s ability to think critically, act responsibly, lead effectively, and live humanely; it makes the enrichment and development of the whole person the highest priority.
The whole person learns to understand himself, others, and his world, and take responsibility for his actions. A Wabash liberal arts education positions a young man for a life of earned achievement, prodigious integrity, broad understanding, and personal fulfillment.
Opportunities to Lead
At the heart of leadership lies the ability to motivate action in others with a shared vision. In academics, athletics, and extracurricular activities, Wabash students have the opportunity to lead and to collaborate with others in their own visions. The closeness and flexibility of the Wabash community ensures that new clubs and organizations come into existence with ease; established organizations depend on newer students to rise to leadership. Students leave Wabash with the ability to make an impact in their organizations, their communities, and their fields of interest.
Wabash alumni are passionate about their alma mater. They ask how they can help, and not just why they should help. They regularly invite students into their organizations all around the country and even into their homes. And they help and challenge each other through lifelong friendships. Students can count on the counsel and camaraderie of their peers long after Wabash.
