What is your overall opinion of this school?

Washburn is a unique place. When I was visiting other campuses my senior year of high school, many of them felt like they didn't care about recruiting me. Half the time they didn't know my name. Washburn, however, made me feel welcome. I knew the counselor I was meeting because he had come to my high school. All the professors I met with (I think there were three) were prepared to answer my questions. They knew my name and asked me questions to tailor my visit as closely as possible. It was never a choice for me. Washburn was it. Since I first enrolled, I have changed my major a dozen times. Every professor in every department has been willing to work with me to find the best major possible for me.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Washburn University has a small campus feel. The class sizes are not too large. The teachers are really hands on and very helpful and want to see you succeed. There are a lot of opportunities. There is a large amount of international students. Washburn has a great opportunity for the traditional student and non-traditional student.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Washburn. It's a great school, where the teachers care deeply about the students. As with any where there are some bad apples, but overall very supportive and helpful. Nice campus size with new and up to date facilities. Brand new residence hall too!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I like it. It was a great choice for me! I was nervous when I decided to go to school out of state but Washburn has been my home away from home. I joined a sorority and got involved and I don't plan on transferring home. I plan on finishing my degree here at Washburn.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Washburn is a wonderful institution that welcomes all students, promotes many intellectual opportunities and strives to develop great students. I feel very comfortable in this environment, and I feel it was the university that best fit my needs. My experiences with both students and faculty have also been very beneficial to my education and my overall college experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Washburn University has always fought for the dreams and successes of its students past, present, and future, in every imaginable way. Their proactive approach to supporting its students begins with the FYE (First Year Experience) Program which has been implemented at Washburn for about five years. The FYE Program is in charge of the university required WU101 class that helps all incoming students transition from high school to college, whether it is "needed" or not. This allows for educational gaps to be filled in for those who were not able to receive this information from high school, as well as teach important information regarding our rights as students and the boundless resources that are provided to us on an every day basis. Even with being a pre-medical biology major, I am ecstatic to continue exploring the variety of courses that Washburn has to offer in the humanities and social sciences, and I will continue to take every opportunity I am able to expand my growing knowledge, but also to grow as an individual. However, with that said, Washburn would not be Washburn without its truly dedicated faculty and staff. With the small class sizes and, thus, student to teacher ratio, it enables the students to have more in depth and profound conversations with the professors and their peers. I am not simply a number that passes from building to building, invisible both to my fellow students and professors, but I am a growing human being who is recognized for my curiosity and desire to learn. I believe that my undergraduate degree and the faculty at Washburn will undoubtedly prepare me and help me achieve my dream of attending medical school to become a licensed medical professional.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think one's opinion of Washburn would depend on your major. I started out as a Bio major and am currently in a different major. When I was in the Bio program, I would often associate Washburn with the professors and how much I learned from them. For example, my chemistry professor was a great guy and all but he didn't really know how to teach students. He'd lecture and lecture and maybe three kids would understand the material by the time class ended. Now by going off of just that experience, I would say that Washburn was an okay school. Once I switched majors, my outlook at Washburn changed. However, one cannot just base their opinions solely on the experience with a professor. There is always that one professor, no matter the school, that everyone dislikes therefore people have to take into account other factors and experiences on and off campus. By doing so, only then can we really weigh our opinion of a school. Overall, I think Washburn is the ideal school. It has small class sizes which allow for more professor to student interaction, no student teachers, great food at the cafeteria, and most of all, Washburn has a great student body. Go Bods!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Washburn. I feel like so many people on campus are truly excited to help students and see students succeed. The campus is beautiful and the professors are very engaged and interactive with students. There are plenty of organizations to be a part of, and as a member of a sorority on campus, I love the opportunities that Greek life gives me to get involved and be an active member of the Washburn and Topeka community.
