Winthrop University Reviews

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.
I joined a program known as Eagle STEM where 15 students took a Chemistry and Math class over the Summer for 6 weeks. While I was there, Winthrop faculty and students treated the group amazing! The campus was gorgeous and there were plenty of things to do while on campus. It's a wonderful university and a great place to call home!
They take safety very important and have call buttons all around campus. The campus is surrounded by fast food restaurants, stores, and beautiful scenery. They have a lot of food choices on campus as well, which are really yummy. I suggest checking out Miso if you ever go to visit.
