Washburn University is a rarity among colleges. On this small Kansas, the campus sits a beautiful, serene wonder of higher education. Not so small as to be irrelevant, not so big as to remain unnoticed in a crowd of thousands. The professors are top-notch, the course offerings are diverse and thoughtful, the food is out of this world delicious, using only the finest quality ingredients, the dorms are new or updated to like new, the classrooms and public areas are well-appointed, the social scene is enjoyable with plenty of activities to suit all personalities and the cost of attendance is manageable. There are plenty of opportunities for scholarships and work studies, not to mention grants. All in all, in super glad I chose Washburn University to finish my undergraduate degree. I am proud to be an Ichabod! #GoBods!
I can't think of one area to complain about.
I am still in college, but I really like how inclusive Washburn is and how considerate as well. In my opinion, I didn’t do as well as I could’ve my first semester, but that was mainly due to my own resistance because I wasn’t taking advantage of the help they were offering to me. I believe the people are all very kind and understanding, but also professional, so you do what you’re supposed to and therefore you will do well.
I feel like there aren’t that many online opportunities at Washburn which was really disappointing, especially for someone who works full time and goes to school full time. As with all schools, there are certain teachers who can cause problems, but Washburn handles things fairly well just be aware.
I like the fact that by the time I graduated I was friends with a good amount of people in my classes. Washburn focuses on getting the students involved with each other which makes the experience more enjoyable. Not only do you become friends with your classmates but the classmates also become the teachers in some programs and that was really cool to me.
Washburn is a special place and I think there needs to be more marketing toward current high schoolers in the surrounding area.
The dorms allow for many places to study besides dorm rooms or suites.
The quality of food.
I like that Washburn University is a smaller campus, I think that a smaller class size allows you to get to know your classmates and get more one-on-one feedback from professors. Overall I think that the campus is nice, the building and outdoor spaces look nice and are well-maintained. I do Washburn University is a good college and more affordable than some other options in Kansas.
The Washburn art department has had several issues in the past year, including staffing issues, limited class selection, parking issues due to the new athletic center, and some issues with open studio hours. I still recommend it, but hopefully, issues will be resolved soon.
I liked how Washburn acts like a private university but it's public. That means more opportunity for the students!
WORK-STUDY is a nightmare here! You may get hired on at the beginning of the semester but it'll be halfway through by the time you're officially able to work. Plus, the scheduling is a disaster. Why did they put students in charge of some of them?!
