Topeka is one of the most “livable” cities in the U.S.

Recent national surveys rank Topeka high for quality of life attributes including:

  • Topeka was ranked as the 9th top well-being small community in 2012 by Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, which measures physical health, emotional health, healthy behaviors, work environment, and more.
  • Topeka was rated 30th among all cities ranked in the Gallup-Healthways study of health and well-being. The Topeka MSA jumped up to the impressive ranking of 30 from 178 in 2009.  And, Topeka was ranked number five on the list of Top 10 Small Cities when all cities were divided by population.
  • The Topeka MSA was ranked #17 of the Top 25 Best Cities for the Next Decade by percentage of Workforce in the Creative Class. 
  • The United Way of Greater Topeka reports that per capita Topekans give 50% more than the average Kansan and 250% more than the average American.
  • Topeka ranks 7th among 75 mid-size cities for volunteers.

In addition to a cost of living that’s 8% to 10% below average, you’ll also find quality neighborhood schools, housing of all types and price ranges, a regional medical center that serves all of northeast Kansas, historic, educational and fun attractions, sidewalks in most neighborhoods, easy access to parks and trails throughout Shawnee County, civic organizations for every interest and myriad arts and culture activities.

We’re also investing in our community with GO Topeka’s Economic Development Program funded by a half-cent sales tax and a 10-year Street Program designed to provide long-term maintenance for our roadways.

Is Washburn private — or public?
Washburn is a publicly funded, independently governed, state coordinated university. The school was established in 1865 as Lincoln College by a charter issued by the State of Kansas and the General Association of Congregational Ministers and Churches of Kansas. In 1941, the citizens of Topeka endorsed Washburn by voting to establish a municipal university, supported in part by the city and governed by a local board of regents. In 1999, the university's primary funding was moved from city property tax to county sales tax sources, with the school retaining status as a municipal subdivision of the state. In addition to local financial support, Washburn has received state funds since 1961, which have been coordinated by the Kansas Board of Regents since 1991. Washburn is governed by its own nine-member Board of Regents.

University funding sources: The University is funded by local sales tax, a state operating grant and student tuition.

Mascot: The Ichabod. Washburn's mascot honors the school's early benefactor, Ichabod Washburn, a 19th century Massachusetts industrialist. The original design of the studious-looking, tuxedo-clad figure was created in 1938 by Bradbury Thompson (ba '34), who became an internationally recognized graphic artist.

On campus:

  • Enhancements to campus in the past decade include the renovation of Stoffer Science Hall and Whiting Field House, and the construction of a Student Recreation & Wellness Center, an art building and Washburn Village, a 192-bed apartment-style housing complex.
  • The Mulvane Art Museum is the oldest accredited art museum west of the Mississippi River. The museum's permanent collection, though international in scope, emphasizes the work of artists of Kansas and the Midwest.
  • Washburn is home to KTWU, the first public television station in Kansas.

Washburn's influence in the community extends beyond the traditional classroom. Hundreds of youngsters are welcomed to campus each summer as participants in sports camps, while others explore their creativity at the ArtLab and through programs offered by the Mulvane Art Museum. Washburn hosts the Quest Academic Competition that brings high school students from across the state to vie for the opportunity to participate in championship matches produced and televised by KTWU. The campus is a center for cultural, sporting and educational activities. Annual events include Sunflower Music Festival, the Mulvane Mountain/Plains Art Festival, the Silent Film Festival and events at the Andrew J. and Georgia Neese Gray Theatre.
