Today is Tuition Free Day 2013…highlighted by a Chapel Talk by the Vice President of the Board of Directors of the National Association of Wabash Men, Kip Chase ’03.
What the heck is Tuition Free Day? Tuition Free Day marks the point in our fiscal year when funding the College’s operations transitions from tuition revenue to the support and generosity of the greater Wabash family.
Up to this point, the bills have been paid by tuition funds. Today, symbolically, those tuition dollars had been used and funding “switches” to those who have invested in Wabash. Our young men and their families are in essence standing on the shoulders of Giants – the greater Wabash family.
It’s a day to celebrate that tremendous support – covering approximately 67% of the cost to run the college. But it’s also a time to reflect on the fact that this level of support and more is needed to keep the College growing ever stronger.
Hope you’ll take a moment to celebrate…and also you’ll take a moment to invest in the Wabash of tomorrow. You’ll be glad you did.
