The Best Bell Heists ( and Attempted Heists)

WILL HARVEY ’22 | STAFF WRITER • Spirits are high around Wabash as the bell hollers its famous “ding ding” across campus at all hours as we approach the biggest weekend of the school year.

A day in the Life: Professor Crystal Benedicks

BRENT BREESE ’19 | COPY EDITOR • Wabash students are well known for their opportunities to form working relationships and friendships with our professors.

University football teams have been meeting nearly every year since 1890, but it wasn’t until 1932 that the Monon Bell became the trophy of the rivalry game. However, the first Monon Bell game ended in a 0-0 tie, meaning neither team won the bell until a 1933 DePauw victory.
