Helpful reminders for our future Ichabods: 

  • Bring your photo identification!  You'll need it to get your iCard.
  • Take a look at the map HERE for information on building and parking lot locations. The parking lot to the north of the Morgan building will be closed due to construction. Sorry for any inconvenience.
  • This day will be full of lots of new information to many of you. Make sure you are ready to take learn a thing or two. We wouldn't want you to miss out on anything important now would we?
  • If you want to meet your classmates on Twitter, keep up with the #WUNSO14 hashtag.  Drop in, say hi, and get to know everyone. Make sure you ask questions, take pictures, and share your Washburn experience. We believe that making connections with each other and us as early as possible is one of the best ways to make your college career a great one.  Bonus?  Your tweet could be featured on the big screens during lunch!
  • Do you prefer Facebook?  Then take a gander at our 2018 Graduating Class Group. It's private, just for you all, so ask your Admissions Counselor about getting access. While you're at it, make sure you like the University on Facebook!  It makes us super happy!)
  • Who doesn't love Instagram?  Again, use the hashtag #WUNSO14 and tell us what your favorite part of the day is!
  • Check the FAQ page on the Orientation website.  If you've got questions, it's likely that others have had 'em, too, so make sure you catch up! If the page doesn't answer your question, talk to an admissions counselor or send us a tweet. 
  • HAVE FUN!  This day is for you, and we want to make sure it's a great one.
  • Tell us why you became an Ichabod on Ichabod Interactive with pictures, videos, podcasts, whatever your heart desires!
  • We are excited for you and your future as an Ichabod. If you'd like to be a part of our "Future Bod" interview series, let us know. We will be asking you a few short questions and featuring you on our various social mediums. Pretty painless really. There will be a sign up sheet at registration and we hope that you join.
