Wabash College, a private 4-year college is located in Crawfordsville, IN, about 45 miles northwest of Indianapolis. Founded in 1832 as The Wabash Teachers Seminary and Manual Labor College by several Dartmouth College graduates, the name was shortened in 1851 to its present identity. Wabash College holds the distinction of being one of only three remaining Men’s colleges in the country. The 60 acre campus has a suburban/small town feel to it; the school is composed of several buildings featuring traditional collegiate red brick architecture. There is an abundance of trees, providing shade and much green space on campus. Crawfordsville, founded during American western expansion, is currently the home of the world’s first thin-slab casting “minimill” (a steel manufacturing plant that recycles scrap steel using an electric arc-furnace).
