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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I do not believe they offer off-campus housing. It is a requirement that 1st and 2nd year student live on campus unless you live within a 50 mile radius. There are always so many activities to be apart of and to be involved in. There is a group for everyone to be apart of. The sports that they do have are fairly good, and the intramural leagues are almost as important as the athletes on scholarship. The campus is very clean and has an "homey'' feeling that comes with it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Winthrop. It’s set in a very beautiful area and you feel really safe there. You have so much fun while learning and making friends. It’s trult diverse and everyone is so kindhearted and are there to help you. I absolutely love Winthrop. It is truly my dream college and I love the beauty, atmosphere, people, and everything there. It’s just a wonderful place to be especially if you like smaller class sizes. In my opinion, Winthrop is one of the best schools for educational purposes and to get out there and find out who you really are.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great liberal arts school with many opportunities in order to get involved and meet new people. There is always room for improvement for every college, however, Winthrop becomes a second home once you know you're way around and the surrounding areas.

I am just a visitor but I plan to enroll in Fall. Winthrop University is a beautiful school with a nice campus . The people there are very nice. The classes are small and the professors are great as well. Overall , I have heard that Winthrop is a teaching school and that’s what I want to major in. I absolutely love just about everything about the university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Winthrop University is one of the most diverse universities in South Carolina regarding student population. This diversity makes it easier to share differing ideas and have thorough discussions into certain topics and subjects. The diversity seen on campus also makes it a very open and accepting campus where anyone can feel free to be themselves without fear of judgement, this helps make for a good learning environment because you don't have to worry about what others may or may not be thinking about you. Another aspect of Winthrop that helps make the academics exceptional here, and a reason we are one of the top schools in the Southeast region, is the fact that the average class size is right under 30, with biggest being offered is not much above 60. This allows for more one on one interactions between students and the professors, who are here to help each student succeed and not hinder their success as a student. These are just a few of my opinions of Winthrop University and why I think it is such an amazing university that helps to foster the success of each student while allowing everyone to be themselves and express themselves and their ideas.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall my time at the University haas been a positive experience for me. There is a huge emphasis on learning an experiencing other cultures hence the cultural event requirement for graduation but, if that is something you value you shouldn't have much trouble with that. Another positive is that I have not had to hide my political views. There seems to be this stereotype that colleges are overwhelmingly liberal and will suppress conservative opinions, and yes, I would say that overall the majority opinion on politics here is liberal, but I have not encountered anything like that from professors. I have been able to write papers on issues such as gun control and birth control without penalty (considering I got 100% on those particular papers). Some students might dislike you for your opinion, but unless its an election year I haven't experienced many problems in this respect. Despite this I would not recommend this school if you have a disability. The Winthrop campus technically has ramps and elevators to help students with disabilities get to classes but, they don't look well maintained. Also I have very little faith in their Office of Accommodations. A friend of mine had a very severe back injury and had to avoid even mild physical activity to prevent worsening it. This was difficult considering she lived on the third floor of a building without an elevator. Luckily, though there was an empty room on the first floor that they would allow her to move into, the next semester. Despite her and her roommate pestering the school board they would not let her move in sooner. Her injury worsened and it really became unsafe for her to use the stairs. Thankfully, they were able to find a place mid semester that was not far from campus but, unfortunately that is only one battle she had with the School. It's a good campus but, if you do have a disability it might be wise to look elsewhere.
