Wabash College

Wabash College is a small, private, liberal arts college for men, located in Crawfordsville, Indiana. Along with Hampden-Sydney College and Morehouse College, Wabash is one of only three remaining traditional all-men’s liberal arts colleges in the United States. Wabash College was founded in 1832 by a number of men including several Dartmouth College graduates. It was originally called “The Wabash Teachers Seminary and Manual Labor College.” In the early days a large number of students, deficient in credits, were required to attend the “Preparatory School” of Wabash.

Caleb Mills, the first faculty member, would later come to be known as the father of the Indiana public education system and would work throughout his life to improve education in the Mississippi Valley area. Patterning it after the liberal arts colleges of New England, they resolved “that the institution be at first a classical and English high school, rising into a college as soon as the wants of the country demand.” After declaring the site at which they were standing would be the location of the new school, they knelt in the snow and conducted a dedication service. Although Mills, like many of the founders, was a Presbyterian minister, they were committed that Wabash should be independent and non-sectarian.
