Don’t even think about skipping the game just because our placekicker has outscored the Tigers so far this season. It’s the Monon Bell game and, as you know, anything can happen.
So, be there to cheer on the Little Giants.
This afternoon Wabash kicks off the Civil War Symposium. We’re expecting good crowds for the afternoon sessions (for the rundown, click here).
Beth Swift has helped provide a super display in the Lilly Library – make sure you swing by there before or during the afternoon sessions.

President Gregory Hess spent part of Homecoming Saturday morning speaking with class agents and answering their questions.
President Hess outlined his initial goals – he’s aiming to play offense and make Wabash THE liberal arts college for men. He then took several minutes to answer questions posed by the class agents.

Talked to a young pledge this morning about his Chapel Sing prep haircut. He was loving it! He and his pledge brothers tried a bunch of different “styles”…I remarked that he still had more hair than I do. He wasn’t sure if he was supposed to laugh or not.
Tomorrow he and his pledge class will be sporting the clean cranium look.
Mom…Dad…it’s OK. It’s fun. It will be a time they’ll never forget.
The Betas have started their efforts on their Homecoming float. These two young men gave me the rundown on the design – sounds cool…if it gets done the way they have envisioned it.
What will it look like? Have to be here…
Chapel Sing this Thursday…rite of Passage time for Freshmen…
