What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Winthrop because it’s small and class sizes are small! The campus is also BEAUTIFUL and you also stay connected. The food is great I love that they have Chick-fil-A, and a cafeteria with good food. The professors are nice and always willing to help students by offering office hours.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have visited WU and love the campus. The layout is beautiful and I can't wait to be a future eagle in January 2020!! The sport teams are D1, but WU is missing a football team. We are working to make one and make WU an even more exciting school. I have heard the Pre-Dentistry program is absolutely amazing and I look forward to graduating with a pre-dental major.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Winthrop University because of it's beautiful campus, ideal location, and quaint small-town vibe. Located in the heart of the Carolina's, Winthrop holds connections with major business cooperations in nearby Charlotte and boasts a talented art and theatre program. The science degree programs are particularlly outstanding. Perhaps my favorite aspect of this college is the small class sizes (they cap all classes at 30 students.) It is refreshing to have professors who care so much about their students' success. My overall experience with Winthrop Universtiy has been positive. I love my school!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Winthrop is a small enough but big enough school where student can pursue their education and enjoy the campus activities. Winthrop is also a great school due to the small classroom setting you don't have to worry about not being noticed by your professor due to having over 50 student in one classroom. I would totally recommend students to Winthrop University because even though the school has a small setting you still get that great college experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Winthrop University is that it is a good school. Everyone there-faculty, staff, students- is so friendly and welcoming. The professors are very willing to help you-even outside of class. Some of the classes that are required seem pointless or are drawn out too long. For example, ACAD, the "College 101" class this class did help with my adjustment to college; however, after a certain point, the class was busy work and took much-needed attention away from other classes. Some of the resources that they have are ASC tutoring and the writing center. Winthrop also offers many on-campus job opportunities (such as tutoring). The campus is beautiful (when it is not raining) and feels very safe. I feel very safe at night because there is the police forces' presence due to locking up buildings and doing rounds. The dorms are very nice and pretty clean. The only time that they get messy is on the weekends because the custodial staff is not there. Rules are enforced and followed and campus-wide there are not a lot of problems that arise.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Winthrop is a mediocre school. There is no football team, which makes the school more depressing than you think as that's one less social event to attend. It is a suitcase school, this place is a total ghost town during the weekends, so if you want to have that college experience, you may want to look into a different school. On campus housing is poor and the food has given a number of students (myself included) food poisoning. Professors are okay, a lot of them contradict themselves and do not show up to office hours. Some teachers do not care if the entire class is failing and the institution is slow to recognize poor professors which causes a lot of students to suffer. The school overall is not bad, but it does tend to carry a depressing vibe on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great campus and place to study, filled with great people and awesome places. It gives people the feel of big city living without all the traffic, plus it’s only 30 minutes away from Charlotte. The class sizes are small and the professors learn/know the students name. They are very easy to reach either by email or during their office hours.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Winthrop is a good school if you like a small class size and a small campus. The food is terrible and the housing is not the best. Teachers are easy to reach and usually willing to help, which can substantially improve grades. Partying does happen a good bit but usually only every other weekend. Overall it is not a bad school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that Winthrop University is an excellent school to go to especially if you would prefer to be in an environment where professors know you by name. The campus is small and quaint, but there is still plenty to do on and off campus. There are a variety of clubs and organizations to fit all tastes, whether you incline to help the community or to jump from a plane from 30,000 ft willingly; to each his own. The size of the campus is very convenient because instead of having to waste gas driving to each of your classes as you would have to at a huge college, students can walk to all of their classes, therefore saving gas and working out at the same time. How pleasant! Winthrop has an awesome gym right next to the student center at the heart of the campus for the students who want to attempt to stick to their new year's resolutions. Fantastic! Unfortunately, unless you are an avid Walgreen's shopper, then there are not many shops nearby that one would be interested in. However, there is an Earthfare down the street a couple of blocks if you are feeling organic, you will have to drive there and utilize that gas, but that's okay because you can use the gas that you didn't use on campus! Outstanding! Plus, you can't put a price on good health! Now I must be honest when I say that if you are a freshman, chances are you will not like freshman housing, but one must expect this. Let's just say, it gets better as you go up in the ranks like pay in the military. Overall Winthrop University is a great school, and I would recommend students to come and join the eagle family.
