5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love Washburn University, much like my fellow students as well as my professors and faculty. The small class sizes allow a more comprehensive learning experience since bonds are easily made with your professor. Getting a degree from WU shows that you got a solid education that allows you to excel in any workforce. Kansas University Medical School accepts more WU students than KU students due to the quality of education. Along with WU's amazing undergraduate programs, we also have a nationally ranked Law School. Overall, the WU student community is one that every student should get the chance to be a part of, I have made connections with other students that will last a lifetime.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I was a biology major my freshman year, after meeting with my advisor and professors I decided to go undeclared. I took Career and Major Explorations which really helped me discover what I truly want to do with my life and how to be successful in what I'm passionate about. I am now a mass media major with an emphasis in public relations and minors in both english and communications. I have made bonds with my professors that have already given me suggestions regarding possible internships. My professors and advisors and Career Services have assisted me with my resume and giving me outlines to write cover letters with. Overall, WU has amazing services that are free, accessible, and ran by people who truly care about the students.

Health & Safety: The Washburn University Police Department (WUPO) has been hiring more officers to increase safety on campus and have been giving seminars/presentations to increase student safety on campus. The Washburn Student Government has increased the amount of lighting on campus and is continuing to create a safer campus. Washburn is implementing an interactive online session about campus safety and sexual assault that incoming students will be required to take to increase awareness among students.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I lived in the LLC my freshman year and had a great experience, all of the RAs work hard on building communities within the halls and getting everyone involved on campus. WU opened a new residence hall this year that is equipped with brand new appliances, furniture, and dining hall. The dining hall is probably the most exciting part since it is an endless buffet that features a soft-serve machine!

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am a part of Greek life at WU and it is a small community that focuses on scholarship, philanthropy, and sisterhood and brotherhood.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Washburn is growing the amount of sports put on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I personally love Washburn University. All of the students and faculty have a large amount of pride for WU. Once an Ichabod, always an Ichabod!

3 College Junior

Greek Life: There are only 3 sororities so you don't really have much to choose from. I'd like to see a few more if possible

3 College Junior

Athletics: Some people go to stuff and some people don't.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I've been there for a little while and it's okay. It's not the best but it's not the worst.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Parties are good. They help you meet new people and become more social. Majority of the time its bring your own drinks. Everyone mainly just talks.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The top two areas of study at Washburn are Law and Science. All have good professors, curriculum. Registration processes are all different. Workload varies. Mabee Library is a great place to study, or if you are in the dorms there are study rooms available for you.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: One of the main things Washburn strives to support is diversity. In the WU 101, or Washburn Experience class we learn how much Washburn cares and strives to be a diverse school. We have many different cultures on campus and we are all welcoming and friendly to all.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: People are invited to go to parties, but are not forced. Friends may ask if you want to drink but no one pressures you. The majority of students are chill and nice.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: I haven't hear of much of their practice of control but I do know for a fact people get away with it all the time.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall its great and I love my school but from time to time there are some downs that come with it.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love the program I'm in and I've learned a lot from all of my professors I'm excited for the future.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Generally everything is good but there are some things that could be improved I had a safety event that was not resolved as well as I would have hoped and I was not on campus for a few weeks after because of it for the rest of that semester I was never alone and it is still bothersome from time to time.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus but have several friends who do it jumps back and forth in quality from good to ok and it really just depends you can never tell when its gonna go bad.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I joined a sorority my freshman year and I was disappointed by its lack of organization and the general Greek Life mentality was subpar, half of them wanted to act as though they were better than other students the rest were just in the organizations so they felt liked. Others genuinely wanted to be involved in the group for the original reasons but things seem to be somewhat....lax. And falling apart a bit....we've lost several on campus Greeks and it seems to be continuing to shrink.

4 College Junior

Athletics: I participated on the dance team for the first four years of my college career and it was a great time in my life. I loved the opportunity to perform in front of the football and basketball crowds and to cheer on our team. The practice studio for us was an old dance studio room that still remained in the building and it was a great size for us to practice in, for the most part the facilities were good and we didn't have much trouble doing whatever we needed. They are still continuing to make improvements as well which is great.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I absolutely love my University, as soon as I stepped on to the campus I felt at home. The instructors and other staff make you feel welcome and help you find your way around the campus, classes, and anything else you may need assistance with. I get wonderful instruction from my professors and feel like I have had a truly unique experience.

5 College Sophomore
