Welcome Week activities

Once again, it is time for Washburn University’s annual Welcome Week. It is filled with several activities that provide students the perfect time to make new friends, meet professors, win prizes, and learn more about not only Washburn activities but events around Topeka as well.  

Some of the Welcome Week activities include Rock the Rec, personalized campus tours, Bods on the Town, Casino Night, Sundaes on Sunday, the campus picnic, WU Fest, and several others.

Among these activities is Dash for Dollars, an activity that gives students the chance to win up to $500. Students can participate in different activities that will provide them chances to win different prizes. The event will have a “game show host” that will help keep the audience’s participation while they race to be one of the students that gets to enter the Cash Cube and have that chance to win the cash prize. It will be held this Friday Aug. 17 at 8 p.m. in the Washburn A/B room.

Another activity to look for during Welcome Week is Traditions Night. It is an event based solely for the purpose of learning about all the Washburn traditions including the fight song, cheers, and much more. It will be held at the Moore Bowl in Yager Stadium this Monday Aug. 20 starting at 8:30 p.m.

From finding one’s way around campus to enjoying casino games, welcome week has it all. For more information about Dash for Dollars, Traditions Night, or to see the full list of Welcome Week activities, visit www.washburn.edu/admissions/welcome-week.html
