I absolutely love Winthrop! It is the perfect environment for a student to learn and to grow. With more than one hundred ways to get involved, Winthrop is the ideal university to go to. Charlotte, NC is also 30 minutes away from the campus, so most students get jobs straight out of internships there. The small class sizes make you feel right at home and your professors truly appreciate you. The only things that I would change are the meal plans, as the food available on campus isn't exactly superb. I also would suggest that Winthrop spend more of its money on improving our dorms, rather than in our basketball coach's salary. Overall, Winthrop is a wonderful school and has so much more to offer than a lot of others. I absolutely love it!
Review Winthrop University
Winthrop is an amazing school! It is unfortunate that they are so expensive and continue to increase their tuition each year because the educational experience is memorable. I had to transfer out of the institution because despite my 3.9, the scholarship amounts were little to nothing from the institution, but I recommend anyone that can afford it to attend!
The campus is very beautiful, diverse, and calm. It's perfect for relaxing with friends or even alone when you want to get away from all of the studying. There's plenty of fun activities to do around campus so you can get to know everyone. All of the teachers are sweet and truly care about your education. Going to Winthrop is like riding a rollercoaster and I love it very much!
