Washburn University Reviews
I love Washburn University! Go Bods! Its a school with a friendly atmosphere. If you like small classes this is the place to go. I've never been in a class of more than 50 students, and I've been there for 4 years. The professors are very helpful and will do everything in their power to help or be available for you. We also have many resources for study materials, and Topeka metro bikes to ride around campus. It's not a big campus, so the walk to classes is not very long, 10 minutes max. The only thing that needs to change is parking. There isn't enough.
Washburn university is a close nit college where everybody is like a family! Its large enough for you to experience student life but small enough to where you know or recognize people. Washburn university is a very safe, small college with fair professors that strive to teach their students the best they can, no matter what.
Washburn University is a cute little campus with a smaller population. There are excellent courses offered, and this university offers programs that can appeal to everybody. The thing to be aware of regarding Washburn University is if you are a transfer student. Washburn is very course specific for their programs, so if you are transferring from another college, specifically from out of state, be sure to find out exactly how many of your previous credits will transfer. In my case only 12 of my 60 transferred. Washburn has excellent programs, especially regarding the health field. If you want to be one of the few selected to be apart of a specific program, make sure that you are on top of your grades from day one! Yes, it is a lot easier to ruin your GPA than keeping it up, but the hard work is worth it!
