Ichabods at Night

Ichabods at Night 

Calling all seniors!  Wondering what it's like to live on a real college campus?  You're invited to stay the night in Washburn's premiere residence hall or one of the welcoming Greek chapter houses for our "seniors only" event, Ichabods at Night!  Whether you're just starting your college search or have already received your acceptance letter, Ichabods at Night is the perfect opportunity to experience a slice of college life.  

You'll be paired with a current student who will help you cheer on the Ichabods at an NCAA sporting event, share dinner with you in Stauffer Commons, and show you what Topeka and Washburn have to offer!  And don't worry, the event is free, so all you have to worry about is bringing your bedding.

An Emergency Contact and Release Form needs to be signed by the student (or a parent/guardian over the age of 18) and turned in when the student comes to campus.
