Ben Hatchett is an Evansville, IN native and 2017 graduate of DePauw. After focusing his college search efforts close to home in the Midwest he found just what he was looking for in DePauw. His college decision was an easy one after just one Spring visit to campus as an admitted student. He recalls how awestruck he and his family were of DePauw and the campus - thinking they discovered the Hogwarts of the Midwest. Hidden within a small town community, DePauw offered a true residential college experience that required 100 percent immersion into the campus culture. DePauw enabled Ben an opportunity to learn valuable lessons both inside and outside of the classroom where he created lasting friendships among students, faculty, and staff.

One of Ben’s favorite aspects about his liberal arts education was that it offered a truly unique and personalized experience for everyone on DePauw’s campus. He believes that no two DePauw stories are ever the same, but they share countless commonalities that allow DePauw alumni to connect across generations. Ben fondly regards his DePauw experience as part of an endless bond and legacy that brings so many people together.

Ben has embarked on an exciting new opportunity with the Office of Admission and is regionally based (living in Michigan) to recruit new Tigers from the Midwest. He looks forward to helping others make DePauw their future home.
