Wabash Receives $7 Million Anonymously

Wabash College will dedicate the sprawling Ott Residential Life District on Saturday (October 7) following the receipt of an unrestricted $7 million anonymous gift to the College. The new housing district honors the memory and spirit of philanthropy of John N. “Fuzzy” Ott, Wabash Class of 1920.
 
The event will take place at 11:00 a.m. at the district, which is located on Crawford Street at the intersection of Harry Freedman Place.
 
“What we know about ‘Fuzzy’ Ott was that he deeply valued the liberal arts education he received at Wabash, and that he loved the lifelong connections he made during his time as an undergraduate here,” said Wabash President Gregory D. Hess. “We can think of no better way to honor his memory than to name our new Residential Life District after him since it is in this intersection that the majority of our students cross paths with one another on a daily basis.”
