Students Crowd Fifth Community Fairby Howard Hewitt • August 31, 2010
The Wabash Community Fair has grown since its inception five years ago introducing Wabash to what Crawfordsville has to offer.
The Community Fair is organized each summer by student interns in the Career Services Office. Jake Zielinski ’12, Bobby Wade ’11, and Brady Young ’12 put together this year’s fair.

The opportunity for merchants to come before students, faculty, and staff is a great way to build town/gown relationships. Restaurants, banks, churches, clothing stores, and charitable organizations all come together to present their services and products to a new crop of Wabash men and all the returning students.
Students took advantage of free haircuts, massages, and lot of cookies and more cookies!
Director of Career Services Scott Crawford thought this year’s crowd was bigger than ever and credited the hard work of his summer student employees.
Brady Young talks about how the big event comes together in the video below.
