I've been at Washburn University for about a month now. The experience so far had been pretty cool. I've declared a second major and the academic advisors were very supportive and helped me create a plan to still graduate within four years. The community is great and the university encourages you to explore social life and values it just as much as academics.

Washburn campus feels like a home to me. Mot instructors I have had are exceptional, some are mediocre, and rarely have I had any ! didn't care for. I feel like the professors truly want their students to succeed and that is helpful when college can be so tough.
