This event will be held April 16th in Baxter Hall 101 at Wabash College at 8pm.  A reception will follow.

To ensure the most effective 5 year celebration in the midst of Andrew Breitbart’s passing, the Wabash Conservative Union staff, leadership, and board made the decision to move Growing to Last to Fall 2012.  The event will be held at Wabash College, and will feature a new speaker that carries on Andrew Breitbart’s legacy, and that of the Wabash Conservative Union.

Please check back for updates as they develop.

The Wabash Conservative Union was utterly saddened of the recent passing of Andrew Breitbart.  Mr. Breitbart was a true patriot for his country, and we all should follow his example of not being afraid to speak the inconvenient truths.  Mr. Breitbart was set to speak at Wabash College on April 21.  Updates are forthcoming regarding the event.

The issues of The Phoenix from this last semester are now online!

sept2011First, in our September issue, we welcome the Class of 2015 to Wabash College. As the freshmen are no doubt are realizing, the rhetoric of admissions and orientation has given way to the dull task of work and thought. In this issue several upperclassmen give their insight into how to make your Wabash experience a good one.  Jeremy Wentzel ‘14 gives advice on how to spend your free time in Crawfordsville.  Matt Michaloski ‘14 encourages campus involvement through the Alpha Phi Omega service fraternity.  And, on a more philosophical note, Bob Cassady ‘12 admonishes against the fake virtue of niceness.

We also have some of our new brethren joining us as contributors.  Isaac Taylor ‘15 discusses the Federal Reserve, while Zachary Crozier ‘15 talks about the U.S. credit rating.  Rounding out the issue, Micah Chowning ‘14 reflects on 9/11 and Zachary Rohrbach ‘12 provides a recap for the recent economics debate on campus between Dr. Webb and Dr. Rocha.
