Washburn and the community

Whether it be Topekans visiting the Mulvane Art Museum or cheering on Ichabods and Lady Blues athletics or Washburn students volunteering and working in area schools, hospitals or small businesses, there’s no denying the connection between Washburn University and Topeka. 

Find out how Washburn can enrich your life with classes, events or activities of all types. Washburn can even help you put your best foot forward with professional development opportunities and consultation. And you can come to campus to enjoy the annual Mulvane Art Fair, Sunflower Music Festival or a concert or play. There's always something to do.

You can even host an event on our beautiful campus or purchase retired items at auction.
