As we embark on another Thanksgiving holiday may we each take some time to think about what we’re thankful for. Loving family, supportive friends, health, a secure job…just to name a few. Take the time to make sure to say ‘Thank You’ to those that you’re thankful for this year!
Now – what about Wabash College? Do you attribute any of your successes post-college to the education you received at Wabash? Are you thankful for your time spent at the College? For the efforts made by your faculty, the aid you may have received, the friendships and relationships that you began, the career advice you sought? If so, take a quick moment to show your thanks (http://www.wabash.edu/alumni/annualgiving).

Here’s to a safe, enjoyable and relaxing Thanksgiving holiday to all the Class of 2005 Alumni!
FOOTBALL update: Following the football team’s victory in round 1 of the D3 Playoffs against Illinois College last Saturday, they will now host North Central College @ Hollett Little Giant Stadium at Noon this coming Saturday, November 26th. If you can make it to Crawfordsville, tickets will be available at the stadium. For those of us that will be busy with the continuation of the Thanksgiving holiday with in-laws that day, like me, the game will be available online: Live stats, radio, and an internet video broadcast (http://sports.wabash.edu/video/hometown).
CROSS-COUNTRY update: Kevin McCarthy finished sixth at Saturday’s NCAA Division III National Championship Men’s Cross Country Race with a school-record time of 24:15. He and his Wabash College teammates finished 16th overall.
BASKETBALL update: The team has started the season 2-0 with victories over St. Francis and Calumet College-St. Joseph. the Little Giant basketball squad was picked to finish 4th in the pre-season NCAC Coaches’ poll.
