Student Success


As you become an Ichabod, all first-year students are invited to Washburn University’s Opening Convocation 4:00 p.m. Monday, August 21, 2017 in White Concert Hall.  Convocation is the traditional beginning of an academic year, where you as a member of the Class of 2021 are officially welcomed into the Washburn community of learning.  President Jerry Farley leads the ceremony as we begin to develop your identity as an Ichabod.
