Washburn University, or WU for short, is a co-educational, public university located in Topeka, which is the capital of the US state of Kansas, as well as the county seat of Shawnee County, having a population estimated at a number of more than 122 000 inhabitants, during the 2000 census. The name of the city, in English translation means ''to dig good potatoes'', and it was chosen by its founders because it ''was novel, of Indian origin and euphonious of sound''.
WU was established in 1865, by a charter issued by the State of Kansas and the General Association of Congregational Ministers and Churches of Kansas, and it first started as Lincoln College, on land donated by abolitionist John Ritchie. In 1952, the Washburn Board of Regents officially changed the name of the school to Washburn University of Topeka, which was quickly reduced to simply Washburn University.
Washburn's athletic teams are known as the Ichabods (men) and Lady Blues (women), who compete in NCAA Division II, in al the traditional college sports. Their distinctive color is blue.
Among the most resonant names, on the list of notable WU alumni, there are: James Reynolds - actor who portrays Capt. Abe Carver on NBC's ''Days of our Lives'', Greg Brenneman - chief executive officer of Quiznos, former chief executive officer of Burger King Corporation, former chief operating officer of Continental Airlines, Brig Gen Arthur S. Champeny - only man in U.S. history to receive the Distinguished Service Cross in three separate conflicts: World War I, World War II and Korea, and Henry Justin Allen - 21st governor of the State of Kansas, among others.
