Washburn University, 1700 S.W. College Ave., is named for Ichabod Washburn, a New England church deacon and philanthropist who donated $25,000 to the school in 1865. His generous spirit lives on in the likeness of “Ichabod,” the school mascot. Some 7,300 students are enrolled in arts and sciences, applied studies, business, law and nursing programs.
