Howard W. Hewitt – The Indiana Quality of Life Grant from Lilly Endowment has provided internships for Wabash students, trips around the state to learn more about Hoosier history and culture, and brought speakers to campus.

It’s fascinating then to see different parts of the program come together to enhance the classroom experience for Wabash men. That’s exactly what’s happening this weekend.

Matt Vest ’08, who studied German religious immigration into Indiana as part of the Present Indiana program this past summer, presented his video Friday to Steve Webb’s religion class, History of Christianity to the Reformation.

Using money from the same grant, Webb will lead his class Saturday to St. Meinrad, Indiana, to visit the monks and learn first hand about their life at the Archabbey.

We’ll put a full story up at the first of the week about the synergy which brought this trip alive for Wabash students.
