    The tuition is one of the lowest in Kansas. This made Washburn my first choice from the get go. Parking is also free, another cost saved! There are also so many events and activities it is hard to believe the acitivity fee is as low as it is. Overall with all the services like Health, Help, Fitness, entertainment, etc that you are getting makes Washburn a great choice.
