Family Weekend 2020

September 26-27, 2020

Family Weekend 2020 will not be celebrated with games on the lawn or football as is tradition at Washburn University. Like most of 2020, COVID-19 has made us re-evaluate our plans and adjust for socially-distanced, smaller activities. This year as families visit their student, we encourage them to take advantage of the mainstay attractions on campus and in Topeka.

Downtown Topeka Merchant Discounts

Merchants in downtown Topeka want to welcome students and their families with discounts Sept. 26 - 27. Just show your Washburn ID. (This is valid for students, faculty, and staff.)
