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.

3 College Senior

Weather: Kansas weather is crazy. It will snow in spring sometimes. Many of my professors are from out of town so even if the weather isnt too bad, they will cancel class if it looks like they can't drive on the road.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: There are many emergency call buttons all over campus in case something happens. There are also security cameras and campus police on campus at all times. My school has a program that sends email or text alerts if something is happening on or near campus. The alerts will also be sent out when the problem has been resolved.

4 College Senior

Diversity: There is alot of diversity. Our campus has an international house. There are many students that came here from another country. There are also many students of different sexual orientations. Overall, students are friendly to eachother, regardless of sexual orientation or country of origin.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: There is a wide variety of students at my school. They dress in different ways. There are many on campus activities that interest the students. It can also be similar to high school with some cliques.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I would not live there more then one year. Gross.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Not many nice locations near campus. Nicer locations are 15-20min drive across town but worth it for safety

3 College Junior

Weather: School does not shut down during a severe snow storm when the governor declared a state of emergency across the entire state.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The day time is much better then evening.

3 College Junior

Transportation: Local public transportation is the only additional form and they are partnered with the school so that students ride free.

College Junior

Majors: I have not yet had an internship

4 College Junior

Majors: I would do it all over again. I plan to be graduate with a BSN. My concerns are that I will not be fully prepared when done.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Sports are not a large part of campus life.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Its not the best and its not the worst. Just an average city that is increasingly unsafe.

4 College Junior

Parking: There are not parking cost which is wonderful but the spots fill up quickly. Normally you have to arrive at least 30min prior to class in hopes to find a parking spot.

5 College Junior

Academics: Faculty is absolutely wonderful, they have there stuff together. Most importantly they go above and beyond to help with education.

3 College Junior

Academics: There is not an enormous amount of course study areas. Although, the ones that are offered, are major study areas and well known.

2 College Junior

Nightlife: Topeka is not a very safe town therefore I refuse to participate int he nightlife. The areas that I could participate in are located in some of the known worse areas in the city.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My favorite part about Washburn is that my professors in the School of Nursing are always willing to go above and beyond to help with student's education and improve learning.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Most of the Greeks have their own house. They seem to be very cliquey and snobby.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are not many locations. Unfortunately, the school is not located in the best area of the town which causes me to go outside of the near school options.

4 College Junior

Parking: Parking is free all through out campus and there are plenty of parking spots

4 College Junior

Transportation: Students are able to ride the city bus for free and most people walk to campus

4 College Junior

Athletics: Most people I know are very involved in athletics whether it be actually playing or showing up and supporting their team
