Wabash College Description:

Wabash College is one of the few all-male liberal arts colleges in the United States. Wabash is located in Crawfordsville, Indiana, a town about 45 miles northwest of Indianapolis. The 60-acre campus features attractive Georgian architecture, some dating back almost to the school's founding in 1832. Students can choose from 21 majors, and Wabash has an impressive 10 to 1 student / faculty ratio.
