Gets the meaning behind the message?
Cole Crouch '17
A summer internship working with Wabash alum Jason Bridges at his company, Nantucket Bike Tours, was a perspective-shifting experience for Cole Crouch. “We gave tours every day. The experience was like an emotional intelligence boot camp. It taught us how to be aware of ourselves and be attentive to other people. We spent that summer becoming better people and better leaders. All of my relationships have grown since.” Cole chose to be a rhetoric major after falling in love with a public speaking course. But after a few more courses he realized that rhetoric was so much more than giving speeches. “Rhetoric is a part of everything. Art, music – in any form of communication, there’s a message.” Since his summer in Nantucket, Cole has done research on Robert Kennedy with a rhetoric professor, studied abroad in Greece, and become the editor-in-chief of the Wabash student paper, The Bachelor. In everything he does, Cole knows doing it well is about knowing your audience.
That’s a Wabash man for you. Seriously.
