"Washburn offers a great program to fulfill the requirements for The University of Kansas' school of pharmacy program. The teachers are great and the courses where challenging as they should be. Overall tuition is affordable when compared to larger campuses. Not saying Washburn is a small school but maybe medium sized, a person can get to any building in about a 10 minute walk. Washburn has a large library with 3 floors to study at, great for finals week. The only thing I would say is anyone who also would be a science major, the parking lot around the science building is small and can fill up fast. I recommend getting to school about 10-15 minutes early to score a decent spot in the parking lot. I didn't have any problems after I started arriving earlier. Again, Washburn is a great school that offers the courses needed to fulfill pre-pharmacy requirements, at a cheaper price than the pharmacy schools."

Degree: Fitness Trainer
Graduation Year: 2012
"Washburn is a school with extreme diversity and opportunity in the city of Topeka, Kansas. I initially went into the athletic training program as a last resort and it was the best decision I made in my life. The instructors there challenged me outside my comfort zone and pushed me to be excellent and to strive through adversity. The deepest appreciation I had for the athletic program was the opportunity and motivation by the program and instructors alike. I will forever bleed blue and white as a Washburn Ichabod."

"Washburn was the perfect small college for me to begin my education career. It provided me with small class sizes that allowed me to get to know my professors on a personal level. I was given many opportunities to succeed at Washburn whether it was through academics or campus involvement."

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016
"Washburn University's biology program is phenomenal. Although arguably the toughest biology program in the state, I learned a great deal and made connections with all of my professors with the small class sizes. The labs are intimate and in-depth and easy to get into, unlike the larger state schools in the area. Help can be easily attained from the professor themselves with ease."

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2011
"Because of the education that I got at Washburn University, I was able to pursue a career in marketing. I would like to see a greater focus in digital media communication. So much of what is expected when you graduate, is the ability to be able to communicate with potential clients through digital media."

"I had 2 of the best professors at this school. Sadly one has since passed away. I loved the school! The financial aid department was not the best. I lost out on a lot of money because of their inability to help students, but that was a long time ago. Nothing that can be done about it now."

"Washburn University is the perfect college for a person looking for a one-on-one education. Even in the general education classroom professors make time to know each student. The class site never exceeds 30 to 35 students! Wowzers! For such a "small" school Washburn is one happening place."
