The diversity of the Wabash student body is eclipsed only by the diversity of the students’ interests. Imagine a club, ensemble, organization, or publication and Wabash either has one — or will allow you to form one. The Wabash Student Senate, the governing body of student life, recognizes 70 different clubs and publications.
All of these clubs and organizations provide valuable, out-of-class learning and leadership development opportunities. Because they are entirely student-run and student-funded, each club elects its own leadership, manages its budget, and reports on its progress.Each year, the Student Senate allocates more than $400,000 to fund student activities, which range from the College’s award-winning weekly newspaper, The Bachelor, to service clubs like College Mentors for Kids, Alpha Phi Omega, and the KQ&K Tutoring Program.
In addition to funding student activities, the Student Senate works with the Dean of Students Office to advance student life and selects representatives to serve on faculty committees.
The Senior Council is a representative body comprising leadership from the Student Council, Sphinx Club, Alpha Phi Omega, Independent Men’s Association, Inter-Fraternity Council, International Students Association, Malcolm X Institute, and the Student Athlete Advisory Committee. The Senior Council is responsible for promoting a strong and cohesive program of student life on campus by emphasizing community and cooperation among student leaders.

Wabash students choose from a wide range of housing options — seven independent residence halls, nine national fraternities, and College-owned houses that include two townhomes. Freshmen, sophomores, and juniors are required to live in campus housing. Doing so helps students adjust to the rigors of academic life, provides opportunities for social events and intramural sports, and allows students to build friendships that will last a lifetime.
A little more than half of entering freshmen choose to live in one of the nine national fraternities. All of the College-owned chapter houses were built new or renovated in the last dozen years and all are located on campus. All of the fraternities are focused on the ideals of scholarship, brotherhood, and service. (The all-Greek average GPA is better than 3.0 at Wabash.) Each fraternity has its own meal plan, dining room, and cook. All students have their own study rooms and have access to computer rooms and large common areas.
But each fraternity is different — each has its own personality — so students who wish to pledge a fraternity should go around and meet brothers in all of the houses to find the perfect fit.
Delta Tau Delta is in the process of recolonizing on campus. It’s a nationally recognized fraternity currently accepting new members. While active on campus, it will be non-residential in 2016-17.
Students who choose to remain independent live in one of seven residence halls. Living accommodations in these buildings vary — from single-man rooms to doubles, triples, and quads —all of them have common social areas and laundry facilities. Men who live in residence halls eat in the Sparks Center and have a choice of two meal plans (19 or 15 meals per week).
