Though Wabash has seen many publications come and go with the ever-changing times, culture, and demands, The Bachelor has always remained the credible news source for and about the Wabash community since 1908. As such, we always strive to represent all community voices in both our content and our staff. Our publication welcomes opinion writers every week from across campus and beyond to share viewpoints and debate ideas, while also maintaining a safe space for all voices to be heard and for staff writers of all walks of life to do journalism.
We have published about news, campus life, and Wabash athletics through the 1918 Influenza Pandemic, World War I, the Civil Rights Era, the Vietnam War Protests, the power shortages of the 1970s, and more, illustrating how world events impact everyday lives at Wabash. Every week, we gather the most interesting campus stories to deliver to the Wabash community, illustrating the human, behind-the-scenes aspect of events and campus life.
Every year, we’re continuing to reinvent how we deliver our stories to our audience, while staying true to our high standards of delivering the most relevant news eloquently, concisely, and impartially. This is how our publication has won numerous awards over the years, and its members founded the first chapter of Pi Delta Epsilon journalism honors society in Indiana in 1923. Today, we are presenting news on social media as they arise, as well as more in-depth looks in our print issues, which are also available online every Friday.
