This section discusses areas of particular concern to students and their life around campus.
- Tuition & Fees
- How high can tuition go? How has the burden on students changed over the last few years?
- "High Technology" is used as a marketing theme to attract students to Washburn University. So, does the administration put its money where its mouth is?
- Student Employment
- Washburn University benefits a great deal from students willing to work for very minimal wages.
- MU Food Service
- "Students are our Business" is the marketing theme in the university's dining services brochure. In FY03, students purchasing meal plans gave $53,165 to the university in unused purchasing. And still food services suffered a $211,827 operating loss.
- Swimming Pool
- The future of the Garrett Natatorium at Petro Allied Health Center is questionable because of needed repairs and the ongoing annual maintenance costs. However, closing the pool for these reasons seems inconsistent with opening a $5.5 Student Wellness and Fitness Center with annual operating costs of $600,000.
