Winthrop University is a fantastic university for those seeking a campus that embraces modernity in social interactions. The LGBTQ+ community thrives here. The Studio Arts program is fantastic in many ways, with a strong emphasis on student development. 8/10 would recommend for Studio or Preforming arts.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The campus buildings are old, and the dining hall hours can be strange.

I've only been here for a semester but the teachers really seem to care about the education of their students and want you to succeed. The staff are also actively trying to make the physical campus more enjoyable, adding new amenities when they can where they can.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It can be pretty expensive if you are coming from a place where you have little financial support, but what college isn't at this point.

Winthrop University has an amazing and kind student body. It is welcoming and the staff always tries to find ways to keep students engaged within the community.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Winthrop University must work toward bringing diversity to its faculty and advocating for inclusivity.

I love the diversity and inclusion within Winthrop University. Peers and Professors go the extra mile to make sure you are heard and respected.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Food on campus is not very broad. As a college student, it can be upsetting to eat the same meals every day. All of the dorms are not up to date.

I love my professors, especially my Social Work ones. I can go to them about anything and they give the best advice, academics and personal.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The food is never the same quality and can get you sick sometimes. The dorms, depending on who your RA is, might not take you seriously. Mold issues.

Like most colleges, you will run into your fair share of issues with this university. For academics, their education and arts programs are fairly good. Just be careful in choosing your professors as half of them are amazing and will immensely aid in your evolution, while the other half will make you hate everything about what you do. Winthrop has a number of great clubs and organizations on campus as well as being incredibly diverse. However, Winthrop is also shrinking and a number of said clubs and organizations and even academic programs are seeming to dissipate. So you have to be wary when looking at the programs and clubs they advertise cause not all of them exist anymore and they have yet to update the website and official club list.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The strongest issue you will have with this school is the dorm quality. So if you plan on being a resident expect to see a staggering amount of mold, bug, and deterioration problems. If you are vegetarian, vegan, and/or need allergen accommodations you will have trouble with the dining options even though they advertise as a vegetarian/allergen-friendly campus. Speaking of accommodations, if you require accessibility accommodations you might want to skip out on this school as they care very little about those who need them. Attendance is required for all classes at this school so don't go here if you see yourself having trouble showing up to class. Also for any school, you go to, do not take an 8 am. Out of the few 8ams I have had almost half of the class failed each time for attendance issues. So if you have trouble waking in the morning do not do it to yourself. The last thing I will say about Winthrop is that they are a little disorganized and will sometimes do things that make you question how their faculty and staff even have college degrees, so be prepared for really doubting this as the school you chose.
