4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'm a non-traditional student attending full time. I'm not sure if I have to work harder because I am a non-traditional student or not but this is the 3rd college I've attended and has been the hardest of all but I enjoy the challenge more it's just having so much work to do and constantly working on schoolwork to stay on task and/or get ahead without burnout. I've got a 3.0 GPA currently and has seemed hard to obtain. My highest GPA was a 3.8 and that's my goal or better. I take online classes more because it works best for me and I discipline myself more doing online. Overall I enjoy it and the challenge.

Overall Experience: I was very involved in Student Government, Student Alumni Association, Greek Life, and Campus Activities Board. The experiences I had through these organizations helped to define my excellent experiences and held me accountable to high academic standards.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love Washburn and all the people! I can't wait to get out and start my career that Washburn has prepared me so well for!

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Even though its not the biggest school I really like the size cause its not to big so I didn't get lost. Its not to small so there's always something to do.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: Washburn is a decent school but the class sizes are fairly small and the campus is not fun to be on.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Washburn is a very good school! The faculty often have both traditional education, as well as real world experience, which I believe helps give students an accurate picture of how to apply the information in the text. Many of them use a combination of textbooks with other projects and methods of learning, to provide a more comprehensive education.

3 College Student

Campus Food: Sometimes the food is expensive.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It's better than on-campus but pricey

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: ALL chain restaurants- Applebee's, Chili's, etc.

3 College Freshman

Administration: EOD is TERRIBLE. Don't know how she has the job.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Heavy, expensive, but it feeds you.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Automatic knowledge of all social activities

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: only one dining option has a student discount.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I don't live on campus

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: expensive and the food is not clean

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's a simple campus, nothing special.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I feel like I'm being spoiled with the off-campus dining options because my home town only had a selection of fast food and restaurants. Topeka offers plenty of places to eat whether you want fast and easy or a nice sit-down. The only inconvenience is that you have to drive a few blocks to get to it all and the stop lights and traffic can get hectic around certain times of the day.

4 College Freshman

Administration: As long as you're not doing anything too stupid to where you deserve to be caught then you're fine. As long as you're being respectful to everyone else you have to live with whether that means throwing parties, having guests, sleep overs, etc.. Some RA's that are on duty can be strict and rude, but most of them are cool and collected that are lenient when it's nothing big.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It's very competitive for scholarships here. There isn't many scholarships for western based high schools. There are a lot of scholarships you can apply for if you're from Topeka or other specific schools. I wish there was more of an option that Washburn gave you personally to receive financial help. I suppose that's every college, though.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There needs to be more variety. It's always either fried food, dry pasta with a variety of Chinese mixed in, sandwich/wrap bar, salad bar, or gluten free bar. While the gluten free bar has provided the most satisfaction, they need to make it larger and an option all the time not just during certain allotted times. I know that a Mexican bar would be greatly appreciated, or even a partnership with Taco Bell/McDonalds/Subway that allows us to use our meal plan money through them.

Campus Housing: I'm extremely glad I decided to live in the dorms my first year of college at Washburn University. I've met some really good friends through the Learning Living Center. I suggest everyone gets a chance to be in the dorms, even if only for a semester. It shows how capable of change you are as a person considering you have to share a room with a complete stranger (in my case!) and then two other suite mates that you share a bathroom with! I love the LLC because I never have to go outside if I want to grab some food at the cafeteria. I live on second floor so I get to use only a few stairs compared to leaving on fourth floor. I suggest that if you do have a problem with your living situation you talk first to your roommates and if that doesn't help talk to your RA. If that doesn't work either I would suggest making an appointment with the person in charge of residential living because that's their job and they want to help.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are tons of options for off campus eating, and they range from healthy to typical pub-style to fast food. price varies, but the restaurants are usually very clean, fast, and have nice staff.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: There isn't any discrimination between athletes and non-athletes, and usually sports can be very fun and is very eventful for students and athletes alike.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Washburn is one of the safest campuses I've experienced or heard of, the only event that's happened was a local flashed a student, but the situation was taken care of quickly and effectively, and there was a prompt notice sent out to all students following the event, warning students to be cautions and to always travel in pairs or groups.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's all very over-priced and is pretty low quality. not very healthy, and if there is a healthier option, its significantly more expensive.
