There are a thousand different ways to look at and analyze Chapel Sing. I am deciding on this day to take a singular look and I think, by and large, it’s the right one.

Wabash boys yesterday…Wabash men today.

Why else would alumni return, retired faculty turn out, and parents show up…with video cameras? They know, or at least feel, that today marks an important transition in these young men’s lives.

They are not high school senior-studs any more and they have cleared a major hurdle on the road to removing the “new guy” sign. They are Wabash men. Newly minted Wabash men but still Wabash men.
