Wabash College: Again A Best Liberal Arts College

U.S. News has again singled out Wabash College as one of the best private liberal arts colleges in the nation.
The annual U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges of 2014 features just two Indiana private liberal arts schools. Wabash was 57th on the list. Four North Coast Athletic Conference schools, Oberlin, Kenyon, Denison and DePauw, also made the list. The recent news complements with The Princeton Review and Fiske Guide to College singling out Wabash College for excellence and value.
“The rankings allow you to compare at a glance the relative quality of institutions based on such widely accepted indicators of excellence as freshman retention, graduation rates, and the strength of the faculty,” the publication reported today on how it compiles the rankings. “And as you check out the data for colleges already on your short list, you may discover unfamiliar schools with similar metrics, and thus broaden your options.”

Here is a link to the full article.

President Hess First Chapel Talk: Mission Statement & Gentlemen's Rule

Hess: 'A to The; from But to And'

President Gregory Hess spoke of Wabash tradition and new goals in Thursday’s Chapel talk, the first day of the 2013-2014 school year.

The new President and Sphinx Club broke with recent tradition and hosted a packed Chapel on the first day of classes. Hess delivered a talk titled, “Why I am Thankful for Wabash College.” During his remarks he suggested a new mojo to go along with the great mission statement, Gentleman’s Rule, and the College’s great motto.

“I want us to move from “A to The and from But to And,” Hess said. “And by that I want us to be The Liberal Arts College for Men, not just A Liberal Arts College for Men.

“I want us to move from ‘We’re a liberal arts college, but it’s for men,’ to ‘We’re a liberal arts college, and it’s for men.’ That’s what I mean by ‘From A to The and from But to And.’ ”

And then he delivered the words that rang with students and, certainly, alumni alike. “As long as I am President, I will never apologize for Wabash being a liberal arts college for men. I’ll ask you never to do so as well. It is what makes us distinctive, and it is what makes us great. We need to demonstrate and educate others about how best to educate men.”

He began his Chapel Talk with words from poet e.e.cummings about being thankful. He outlined three themes that he would emphasize throughout the year: The value of a liberal arts education; Our need to continue to expand Wabash’s Academic footprint; and, Enhancing the leadership capabilities of our young men.

He said he would not take the time to introduce himself and talk about how he got to Wabash because he thinks he should “tell the story about Wabash College and not be the story of Wabash College.”
He praised the College Mission Statement to To Educate Men to Think Critically, Act Responsibly, Lead Effectively, and Live Humanely. He called it “the most elegant, succinct, informative, and parsimonious as that of any liberal arts college that I know.” The president then drew laughs when he said it could only be better if it were a haiku.

He saluted the Gentleman’s Rule, and compared the expectations of the “lifting our collective sights” to Martin Luther King’s ‘I Have a Dream Speech” and President Obama’s words at Wednesday’s 50th Celebration of King’s speech.

He talked about students, staff, and faculty he met during his two months on the job and how “this place drips with commitment to our very unique purpose.”

Hess’s entire Chapel Talk will be here and on the Wabash YouTube Channel shortly.
