Success Week was implemented to provide students with a week geared towards preparing for finals week. At other universities, the week before finals is normally called "Dead Week." Washburn University wanted to promote positivity and to create an environment that students achieve the utmost excellence. Along with allowing students ample amount of time for studying, the week is filled with events that are created as an outlet for stress relief.
Washburn Student Government Association's student engagement committee in charge of preparation for the events that happen throughout Success Week. They start a year in advance for collaboration on these specific events. Each event has been tailored to fit the majority of students' interests.
