    #BodWW13 - Welcome Week Approaches!

    Welcome Week at Washburn University is our chance to roll out the red carpet for you!  These exciting days of events start with Move-In on August 15th and goes through Traditions Night on August 19th. 

    imageimageimageimageimageimage

    If you want to start school off on the right foot (or the left), join the WU Run/Walk.  Or maybe you want to get a head-start on making new friends — the Meet and Greet and Casino Night are where you want to be.  Perhaps grabbing ice cream and a free show is more your speed, in which case we’ll plan to see you at Sundaes on Sunday and the Big Screen Event.  You can’t go wrong.  And remember, you can come to any and all events, so start getting excited!  A full schedule of Welcome Week events can be found here.

    As you gear up for the festivities, tag your tweets and photos with the official Washburn Welcome Week hashtag: #BodWW13

    imageDon’t forget to check in with us!  Each Welcome Week event has a Foursquare check-in.  If you check-in to ten or more Welcome Week events, you get a free shirt from Admissions!

    And last, but certainly not least, don’t forget to sign up for your FREE Freshman Class t-shirt.  We look forward to seeing you on campus and GO BODS!

    Meet Angela!  We’re so happy to have her on board!

    Angela relocated to Topeka in July 2013 to become the new Assistant Director of Admissions. In this role she works primarily with transfer students and their families as they make college choice decisions. She is originally from Louisville, KY, but her career in higher education has also taken her to Charlotte, NC and three locations in northwest Ohio. She earned a B.S. in Accounting, a M.A. in College Student Personnel, and is currently completing a Ph.D. in Counseling and Personnel Services, with an emphasis in College Student Personnel. Angela enjoys baking, singing, indoor rock climbing, and spending time with family and friends, especially her young niece.

    Meet Noelle, one of the three high-fidelity mannequins (and her infant) that students in Nursing and Allied Health programs work with to simulate childbirth.  

    Students in these programs are using practical, hands on skills from their first semester and throughout their entire education with the help of simulators such as Noelle.  

    If you’re interested in a career in nursing or other health professions, and working with Noelle, get in touch with us!

    Do you know what a meme is?  Not all of our Admissions Counselors were very sure - but what great sports they were!  

    We asked them all to imitate an internet meme.  Just for kicks - you know, something to show to the whole internet.  

    The results, as you can see, were pretty LOL-worthy.  

    What is your favorite meme, Ichabods?

    In case you don’t know this - Matt Hall really loves sports!  

    Matt is from Sabetha, Kansas. He graduated from Washburn University in 2011 with a BBA in Marketing and a BA in Kinesiology, happy with what he’d accomplished with the help of Washburn’s knowledgeable and enthusiastic faculty. As an admissions counselor, he has enjoyed being able to remain close to campus and involved in campus life. A self-proclaimed “small-town kid,” he loves working with students in his recruitment territory, northwest Kansas. When he’s not working, he likes to play basketball, golf, and guitar; watch sitcoms; and completely nerd out for Harry Potter.

    Meet Mackenzie Stolz! Mackenzie works with transfer students and students from community colleges around Kansas.  

    Mackenzie came to Topeka in 2011 from Evansville, Indiana after earning BAs in Public Relations/Advertising and Spanish, the latter of which she taught at the high-school level. So far, she has been quite impressed with the quality of Washburn’s academics and the faculty’s commitment to supporting students. When she’s not helping transfer students with the admissions process, she watches movies, plays board games, and fixes up the house, where she likes to hang around with her husband and her dog, a mongrel who is no less cute for being so unusual looking.

    Meet Blake Bryant!

As an admissions counselor at Washburn, he works with high school students from southeast Kansas, Johnson County and Missouri as well as the New England states. He enjoyed attending a university that was relatable to his mid-sized high school. When he is not on the road Blake likes, to hike, rock climb, cook, catch-up on TV series on Netflix, and playing on Apple devices. One day he hopes to adopt a retired greyhound and they can jam out with one of Blake’s 84 Pandora stations!
