Wabash offers its students superb educational development, small, personalized classes, world-class facilities, and the nation's most engaging and accessible professors. As President Pat White likes to say, "We take young men who do not know how good they are and shine a light on their best ambition and best possibilities of themselves. And they say, 'I can do that, I can accomplish that, I can be that.' Wabash challenges young men to take their lives seriously."
