Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Washburn is best known for it's law school. We have a building dedicated to pre-law and it is renowned throughout Kansas and much of the United States.

Washburn is a small university in the center of Topeka. It has a large variety of cultural activities and opportunities to make a make a name for oneself. The staff is always willing to give up time to help students, and to help them better understand the objectives. School spirit is something that our students strive for, and sporting events are a huge part of the social life here. We have great performing art programs along with the visual as well. There is always something going on here on campus.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

First off, it doesn't have to be about where your friends are going. Think about what you're interested in doing with your life. Find a good, accredited school that suits your needs, and apply. For students who are unsure of what they would like to do, keep in mind that the first few semesters of college will be, for the most part, general electives. As a former "1st-time college student", I highly recommend living on-campus during your first year of college. It is an amazing way to learn more about yourself, and the fastest way to make new, life-long friends. Always have an open mind when it comes to campus activities and taking part in them. Living on your universities campus will also allow you to be closer to your classes for easier access to your professors and facilities, which I believe is very important during your first year. For anyone out there who is not planning to attend college, I urge you to reconsider. No matter what you plan to do with your life, there is a degree out there to help you along your path to success.

Most of them are pritty lame. I've met a few good ppl here but the town sucks. Everyone I know from this town are freaking douche bags.

Find a place you like to live then go to school there. The town and people are what makes your college experience. Stay away from Washburn!

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The town that it's in. Topeka is the most ghetto town I've ever been to. The campus is right off the ghetto and most of the ppl are uptight assholes.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure that the student is interested in attending the university and knows what they want to do. It's always better to compromise and pick something that is good for both the student and the parent, not one either way.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure you visit the schools your interested in. The most important aspect is to make sure your comfortable with the atmosphere and everyday life at the college. Talk to students you see walking by and ask how they feel about the school. They usually are not afraid to tell it how it really is at the school, compared to the campus tour guide. Live in dorms the first year, its the best decision one can make. Its where you meet others who are in your same position and know what you're going through. These people win probably be the ones you choose to live with off-campus the next years. You will hopefully bond and become life friends with the people you meet your first year, through joining clubs and living on campus.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who likes big campus's and big classes.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

That all classes are not above 40 people. I don't have any large lecture classes.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Washburn University is a safe haven surrounded by a town that has little going for it, which makes it difficult to achieve the social aspect of college, but the school itself is great; small classes, nice teachers, and good people for the most part.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would reccomend that you go and experience all aspects of not just the college that you're thinking of attending but also look into the town that you'll be living in for potentially 4 years of your life

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The Business and Financial Aid departments, it takes forever to accomplish what you want done, and students are not treated with respect which is a vast difference from all other areas in the school.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Class is most important but never forget that a healthy social enviroment is very important and the only real way to survive the stress. Going away, you will probably rarely see friends from home, which is good for adapting into the new environment. I have yet to see a happy college friend who keeps around friends that do not attend the college. One cannot live in the past when working towards the future.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The Transformation Experience (new) You must do one to graduate 1) 150 hours of community service (this is regulated and approved by the school, many things will not count) 2) Study Abroad 3) write a lengthy research paper assigned by a mentor 1 and 2, the person must do a presentation to get the 3 credit hours. I really don't have time for it because with working part time, paying for dorms, and going to class, there just isn't enough energy left in me (most of my community service is church related and will not count)

The school that I go to is the right size and diverse.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The advice that I will give to parents of a child trying to find the right college for them is to let their child make the choice that they believe is right for them and the person that they are. Let them determine what they want by rounding out categories in a list and being involved in the search for the college just so that parents are aware of how much it will cost to put their child through college. Do research on the school to see if it provides the right education that the child needs and that it offers the right saftey precautions for the child on campus. For a child going to college the advice I will give them is to look for a school that reflects them as a person and fufill their education needs for the career chosen and if it hasn't been chosen yet, pick a school that has many choices and opportunity to find one. Also pick a place that you will feel at home and involved. Choose a place that will let you be yourself and have fun on and off campus.
