Winthrop University Reviews
Winthrop University Is great! I have made many friends, taken the time to get to know the real me, enjoyed classes that are interesting and in which the professors genuinely care about me. The material covered in my classes undoubtedly pertain to what I will be doing when I graduate. Winthrop has broadened my perspectives on many things and has really helped to shape me into who I am today. The population at Winthrop is diverse, which has allowed me to move outside of my comfort zone and engage with people and in activities that I would not have previously done. The campus offers many places to fellowship as well as the areas around campus. Rock Hill is becoming more college friendly and its great! Campus police do a great job keeping the students and campus safe, and if anything happens, they are quick to respond, inform us, and address the situation in whatever ways they feel are necessary. Winthrop has given me lifelong memories and I am forever thankful!
My uncle introduced and encouraged me to apply to Winthrop University. I refused to research the school because I did not believe Winthrop was the place for me; however, I toured the campus about three years later. One reason why is because of the campus's size. In my opinion, Winthrop is a smaller Clemson. Furthermore, the student ratio is 15:1. Another reason is the convivial atmosphere. Winthrop's faculties are organized, easy to find, and productive. For example, the student center has over four different restaurants and the workers are nice. The staff occupying these places such as the recreation center, bookstore, and admissions office are welcoming, helpful, and friendly. Last but not least, Winthrop has the graphic design program which is my intended major. Thus, I have been accepted into Winthrop University and I am looking forward to finish in two years. I love Winthrop. This is the place for me!
Winthrop is a public and coeducational university that teaches students to live, learn and to lead in their lifetime. This school provides great professors who are willing to shape you into the students that you will need to be. It is a supportive environment that fosters engaged students learning and development. It is also a very safe campus and that is one the most things I love about Winthrop University. One thing I will change about this school is the food in the cafeteria. It is not so bad, but I know it can definitely be better. Overall this is a great school and I will recommend anyone to come, because you will not regret it! Once you an eagle you will always want to be one.
