Wabash Campus

Wabash College's campus is very scenic. The grounds are well manicured and landscaped and the buildings are all red brick with white trimming. The overall feel of the place was very nice. It has an old fashioned traditional feel to it.

While the campus may not be worth a visit in and of itself, it is worth stopping by for a walk if you're in town.

  • Parking is available in lots and on the streets but it may be hard to find during normal business hours
  • Restrooms are available in the buildings
