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.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some of the buildings are clearly older than others, and that is clear in pricing, but there are drawbacks to not living in the new housing, like not being able to have get in to the LLC unless someone lets you in, and having very few washers/dryers/kitchen space available.

3 College Freshman

Academics: The classes get harder in the higher levels, but the beginning course work is very easy and sometimes dull if you have a basic understanding of the foundation of the course.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: My financial aid was a hassle, but that's mostly due to the transcript transfer from Hutchinson Community College to Washburn University. They were slow sending it and they sent it under my name, but in the wrong order (Middle, Last, First) so Washburn, though they received it on time, charged me a late fee on my tuition payment because they didn't realize the transcript was mine, and after the situation had been cleared up, they still charged me the late fee.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greeks are usually really nice or really rude, but it all depends on the chapter they're a member of. The Sigma Phi Epsilons are always super nice. but the Kappa Sigmas are large in numbers and they don't have any real requirements for membership so there are a lot of members who make their chapter look bad.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: There are occasionally events going on around campus, but they are usually either pretty crowded or not particularly interesting.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Mostly frat parties, they're very controlled and managed well so that everyone can have a good time while being safe, but the off-campus parties are rough, very crowded usually, and can sometimes be risky if not in a group.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The Business Administration in Economics major is fairly balanced, the course work is relatively challenging and I think it will definitely help me in my future career

4 College Senior

Majors: Washburn has a very strong science department.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: People are real friendly around here.

College Senior

Party Scene: Washburn doesn't have the typical party rep that most universities do. We emphasize academics over athletics and partying.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: We have a small campus with security on patrol most hours of every day.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Houses on campus are dry (no alcohol). They have great school spirit and always have the recruits necessary to thrive.

3 College Senior

Athletics: We don't always have the best talent but now and then Washburn puts together some very competitive teams for Division II.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: The only great spots include the Burger Stand, Flying Monkey, and Tortilla Jack's. Dairy Queen, Subway, and Sonic are a bit too far away. Great Wall Chinese isn't the best quality food.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: Easy to qualify for the university academic scholarship. It's not a lot of money but it's renewable every year for full-time students.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: A college hill area with college atmosphere and a few restaurants.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: The worst problem is the area surrounding the campus. Some thefts have occurred out of parked vehicles.

College Senior

Campus Housing: I did not live in on-campus housing. The dorms are close to most buildings.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Some sports teams do well, but it is not a Division I school.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Close housing, but not the best part of town. Some theft from vehicles occurs.

3 College Senior

Academics: Great smaller school. Positive experience depends on which professors you have.
