What Students Are Saying

3.67 Average Rating
Have some pretty good choices and good food.
Anita from Topeka, KS
The food in the cafeteria is phenomenal. They have a select variety and it's affordable as well.
Taneshia from Topeka, KS
There is a cafeteria, a corner store in the commons, and a small coffee shop in the library. The food in the cafeteria is just ok, it kind of tastes weird though.
Psychology Student
The food is not that great. Very greasy all the time and the options during most of the day are limited. The best time to eat is during lunch because all the serving areas are open and you have the most choices to feed your appetite.
Richard from Topeka, KS
Again, I live at home and eat at home. But they do have lots of food options on campus. They have a little market store where you can conveniently get your daily goods, and they also have a dinner. There are also many vending machines for a quick snack.
Devin from Topeka, KS
Washburn has a very nice commons area where you can grab a quick bite to eat, along with smaller coffee shops were you can get snacks and a drink of choice.
Tya from TOPEKA, KS
There are five different options for students to live in at Washburn however their is only two for incoming freshman. The one in which I stayed in is called the Living Learning Center or as we students know it as the LLC. This building is primarily for incoming freshman and is connected to the Ichabod shop and the memorial union. The dorm rooms are double occupancy with two rooms with a shared bathroom. Each hall has an RA whose primary goal is to help students whether that be emotionally or with problems that they might face with their classes. On the first floor there is a front desk where students can go to if they don't know who the RA is. Now, on the second floor that is where the fun is whether a student has fun in the game room or just has some fun washing and folding their laundry in the laundry room then that's the place to be. Students typically enjoy their first year being an Ichabod I know I sure did being away from home is scary and complex in a new environment but all I can tell incoming students is to enjoy and have fun!
