Wabash dedicated the renovated Delt house and the brand new TKE house on Saturday, September 20, 2008.
The Delts had a “regular” dedication – a couple of short talks and a ribbon cutting ceremony. Traditional.
The TKEs? No ribbon to be cut. Instead nine speakers, including a poetry reading, and songs around the flagpole. A whistle to keep folks on time (they needed to get done in an hour.) Different.
(You can see photos of the dedications on our home page.)
I wasn’t able to attend either dedication – we had a few class agents back on campus for a meeting. But I did talk with many people who attended the dedications. All of them enjoyed the dedications – both of them. Great crowds at both. Different but fun and memorable.
Same College…and the houses are across the street. That’s liberal arts in action.
