"The smaller class size and having the actual professor teaching the material is one of the many facets of the education at Washburn University that sets the school apart from other universities. I knew my professors each personally and they were always willing to take extra time to spend with me if I needed additional help. I feel my life has been enriched through the education and experiences Washburn University and its professors afforded me." - Holly Kennedy, '14, software developer

"Washburn University's Actuarial Science program provided the opportunities I needed to position myself higher than actuarial students coming out of other universities. The program provided classes that prepared me for great success in the preliminary exams, helping me pass several exams before graduation. If I hadn't decided to go to Washburn for Actuarial Science, I don't think I would've had half the success I've had in this field." - Brian Oxendine, '14, ASA-designated actuary

"My time at Washburn was rewarding and I couldn't have chosen a better university. The mathematics and statistics courses were top notch, and were taught by excellent professors who challenged me and who always had open doors to help students. Everyone shares an enthusiasm and passion for math, which is motivating. When I graduated I felt prepared and ready to start my career in math education." - Paige Spade, '15, high school math teacher
