4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Winthrop is a great and positive campus! I love the diversity and unity that is strongly encouraged. I also love the student organized events, they are a great way to meet new people. The only not so great thing about this WU is the high tuition, other than that the school is amazing.

Overall Experience: I love Winthrop. The campus is beautiful & rustic. The energy that we are given from our superiors travels across the whole school. We have wonderful spirit for sports. The only thing I would change is that we don't have a football team. When I applied to Winthrop, I didn't think I would get in so I focused more on other schools. I started looking more into the school & I realized I loved it. I just love the energy or school gives off. It's amazing.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My favorite experience was the games and activities. Winthrop is very organized and what makes them unique is it is a small school. If I could do it all over I wouldn't chose a different school because Winthrop is located in my home town.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Winthrop University is one of the smaller campuses in the South Carolina area but we are very diverse in ethnicity, views, standards, and cultures. With a campus of our size it is easier to interact with peers and professors. At Winthrop University you are more than a number, you are a name!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My school is a great place to go because the student teacher ratio is great so you get more time with your teacher. There is a lot of things to do at campus!

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: My school is like a big family. Here everyone including the teachers are very nice to the students, they try to help us out as much as possible. Somtimes it gets really boring if everyone goes home all at one time, and tuition is a little expensive.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: They offer a lot for the students. They also make sure that everyone is comfortable.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My university is a family! It's not too big or too small, just the perfect size for an undergrad like me. I love how personable my professors are because it makes the college experience that much easier. Transitioning from being a high school to college student was rough, but I couldn't be happier with my decision.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I haven't attended on a regular basis as of yet. I am happy that I have chosen WU. I have had an opportunity to stay on campus with friends and I enjoyed it, and think that it is and will be a great fit for me. I am looking forward to attending in the fall.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Winthrop university is a great school. It have a beautiful campus and it is known for it's academics. It is a very diverse school. Students come from many different places and everyone is kind to one another. It has an awesome atmosphere. The only downside is the cost to attend.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: There needs to be better communication between the departments so that students can get all their classes in and done on time.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Great academics, great professors, beautiful campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall experience at Winthrop University has been great so far. Not only is the beauty of the school has made me want to stay at such a place, but the teachers and the atmosphere on Winthrop's campus has also kept me there. Most, if not all, of the teachers are open to make sure your success in their class is possible, which is why I love it, because they care. There is nothing like a faculty of teachers/professors that show the love for their job as well as their students like at Winthrop University. Though Winthrop University is a great school the cost for the education there is terrible. If I had the chance to choose a different school, then I may have done it just, because of the cost of it. Other than the cost for Winthrop's education, it is still a great school with great people.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: During my senior year i got overwhelmed with the college process. I chose Winthrop because they seemed to be a easier school to get into. I did not have to second guess whether or not i would get accepted. I am a smart young man and want to go to a more challenging college.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I decided at the last minute to apply for the best scholarship the university offered. We made sure the application was in on time, though just barely, and everyone in the office was really helpful and helped us make sure that everything was in. After that, I never had a problem getting my scholarship money.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Going to Charlotte on a thursday night is your best bet

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I prefer to eat off campus

3 College Junior

Administration: They issue a lot of tickets. I never actually had an encounter with any of the officers at Winthrop.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Thompson is the worst when it's time to go home for holidays and a lot of the food selections are constantly repeated. The best time to eat in Thompson is breakfast.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: They send constant email reminders to keep you updated.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: They should really update and renovate the dorms. Compared to other campuses, they seem very outdated. Courtyard has really nice dorms but they're very expensive.

3 College Student

Athletics: The gym is where its at I can play basketball and then hit the weight room right after way better than my high school gym.
