3 College Sophomore

Majors: To get into the business school at washburn they do have some high standards on what classes they want you to take.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I plan on getting an internship with one of the major businesses located in the Topeka area.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: It is a clean and all around nice place.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Washburn University feels like safe place.

2 College Freshman

Nightlife: There really is not a lot of clubbing and bars in topeka. You can definitely find some and they are cheap but the real partying is in lawrence so many of us drive over to other places or keep the partying on campus, not that there is a lot of partying anyway. Partying is not that important on campus because most students are very focused on academics.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: On campus everyone is pretty happy about living in topeka. There are plenty of things to go such as tons of museums and historical buildings, tons of shopping, and lots of parks to enjoy on a nice day. There is a small attitude about the idea that topeka is not a safe place but once you learn the city you realize that just like any city there safe areas and not safe areas. Almost all thr student activities are in great areas with tons to do.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing on campus is very nice. There is the LLC which most of the freshmen stay at and it is VERY nice. They also have the washburn apartments that are so beautiful but rather pricey and only available to juniors and seniors. If you are wanting to save money there are the regular halls which are almost appartment style and you stay in a communal group with three other people and is a great option since it is cheaper. All the rooming options are spacious with great amenities!

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The food is pretty good with a range of options to pick from. The meal plans are a bit frustrating because they are pretty expensive and dont have a lot of variety in meal plans. The food has options to eat healthy and is fairly accomadating to anyone with special issues.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Students are all fairly diverse and have wide ranges of interests. You can find stuck up people if you look for them but for the most part everyone is nice and kind. You can almost always find a helping hand if one is needed

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Washburn is amazing when it comes to student activities. They always have free movies you can see, student body activities, and so many opportunities to be as involved as you want. Our library is a fantastic resource center and the student hangouts are very nice.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Being that the school is in a capital, there is obviously a higher crime rate and in turn a slight fear of the city. There are some off-campus housing that no one should ever consider and there are some that are in nice neighborhoods and are close to the school. It depends on what you know to look for and the budget one is working with.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is considered a valued part of the school and do some to help the community. There is some bitterness about their funding, being they can get special grants for little work and other volunteer based groups have to do much more work and struggle to get them. Overall no one really mind either way if you are greek or nongreek.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I have friends who are greeks and they do many things campus. They do community service and also make a float for homecoming.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have met many friends at college. The campus is beautiful.

2 College Senior

Campus Dining: The options are very expensive. They have also reduced from last year. There is only one company who is allowed to provide food on campus. The meal plans also dont carry over to the next year. If it is the end of the year and you have money left on your meal plan, you lose it.

4 College Senior

Academics: There are many majors offered. A very popular major is criminal justice. The registration process is pretty easy and there are people who can assist with that.There are tutoring options available for students who need help.

4 College Senior

Academics: It is great. Washburn has an excellent education major program. The professors are knowledgeable and the classes are interesting.

3 College Senior

Facilities: There are many opportunities for students to get involved on campus. There seems to be an organization for about every major. I think one of the most unique aspects of our school is our mascot. Many schools have an animal as a mascot but ours is a man named after the man who donated money to rebuild our school after a tornado. Our mascot is Ichabod and he has a book under his arm to show that he is studious, he also stands tall and walks brusquely to represent confidence.

4 College Senior

Facilities: We have a student recreational wellness center that is free for students. It contains a track, exercise equipment, a basketball gym, weight lifting equipment, and rock climbing wall. It also has a room that puts on different classes such as cycling and zumba. There is a main library, a law library, and a library for education students. All over campus, there are beautiful sculptures that have been created by washburn students.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Topeka is a large city. It is the capital of Kansas. There are beautiful flowers all over the city, especially by the capitol building. The zoo is excellent and there are plenty of parks.There is a wide variety of shopping experiences and restaurant options. Many people from smaller towns will travel to Topeka to shop.

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: Drugs and Alcohol are strictly prohibited on campus. There are regular dorm room checks and a student can be suspended or encounter other severe measures if drugs and alcohol are found in their room. Students usually go off campus to drink and then come back afterwards. That is usually ok unless they are underage.

4 College Senior

Majors: I really enjoy it. Although with my emphasis of early childhood, there are more additional classes. Some classes can be difficult but some classes can be fun. We have multiple practicums including social studies, math/science and literacy before we actually do student teaching. And with my additional emphasis, I have to do infant and toddlers practicum and preschool practicum.

3 College Senior

Majors: My program was elementary education. Before you could apply, there were a couple classes that you had to take. There was also an expensive test that you had to take off campus and have a minimum score. It was not that hard for me to get into the program but I know a couple people who had trouble taking the required test and getting the minimum score.

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: I think the things they are strict about are necessary. College is a place to learn and it is difficult to learn if students are doing negative things.

3 College Senior

Computers: The computers can be very slow at times. It is difficult when I go to an office to get something printed and I have to wait for their computer to load. There are plenty of computers available but they are very slow.
