Honestly, you either love it or you hate it. I hated it.
Though academics there are vowed to be hard and challenging, I had very little struggle in the classroom.
The life outside of campus was so boring. Unless you jam-packed your day with a bunch of sports, clubs, and a job, then outside of academics, your days will be extremely boring.
There are honestly some good things at this college for everyone. You’ll learn a ton on bettering yourself, and might even meet a couple of cool people. A lot professors are nice and it was nice walking to class in 2 minutes.
Though When I told my advisor I wanted to transfer out he pretty much told me word for word “I knew from day one you wouldn’t be successful,” which made my decision clear for me.

I only visit Wabash once and got to meet some of the people there which kind of got me the idea of the student life. Wabash is an only male school and it also has a low teacher to student classroom ratio which is what I like to see in college since it will be easier to have closer relationships with the faculty to have a better experience in college. But, that's not it Wabash's study abroad program its an amazing thing since the students won't have to pay to explore the world and expand their perspective globally.
Takes a special person to thrive in an environment like Wabash. By this I mean that it is not for everyone. It’s a grinding school, and if you want to be at the top you have to grind accordingly, just like in real life. If I had one bad thing to say, Wabash has been really bad in the recent years regarding who they have given tenure to. Some very deserving educators have been let to move on, and some who should have been sent away were kept for the long haul.
