New Phoenix: Welcome Class of 2014!
It is the beginning of a new school year, and as we welcome the semester, we also welcome the next group of Wabash men, the Class of 2014. This issue of The Phoenix, while specifically aimed at the freshmen, will be of interest to all of our reading audience. Zach Rohrbach ’12 has produced a well-researched article on our chapel’s organ, which has dazzled audiences for many years now. Michael Nossett ’11, the Student Body Vice President and longtime Phoenix staff writer, has written an insightful article providing advice to our freshmen. We also have been blessed in this issue with two articles from faculty contributors. William Turner of the Math Department has written a pertinent reflection on the importance and nature of friendships, and David Blix ’70 gives his perspective on what being a freshman and student at Wabash is about.
Also inside, Andrew Forrester ‘11 and Ben Williams ‘11 discuss the merits of independent and Greek living, and Steve Henke ‘12 reminds all students how to get the most out of their Wabash education in the form of extracurricular activities. Andrew Forrester ‘11 also points out the multitude of opportunities to further one’s faith on campus, while Adam Brasich ‘11 discusses the importance of theology in self-discovery. Finally, Adam Current ‘11 rounds out the issue by taking a look at Wabash’s history of respecting objectivity.
