Claire's Travel Schedule

Admissions Counselor - Claire Mooney-MelvinWelcome to Winthrop!  My name is Claire Mooney-Melvin and I am excited to be part of the Winthrop admissions team.  Originally from Chicago, I have since migrated to the Carolinas.  After high school, I headed to Saint Louis University where I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education in 2007.  After completing my undergraduate studies, I moved to Southern Illinois University where I obtained my Master's in Education in 2010.  I worked in the athletic department at Winthrop University for three years before becoming an admissions counselor in 2013.

With the size of our campus and the diversity of our student body, be prepared to find a variety of majors and activities to participate in.  We are proud to have everything from 18 NCAA Division I sports to Greek Life to over 150 clubs and organizations on campus.  In the classroom, you will find that our small class sizes and engaged faculty provide the perfect environment to help you succeed.

Choosing a college is a difficult decision.  I am here to provide guidance and assistance as you make your decision. I encourage you to visit our beautiful campus to see everything that Winthrop has to offer!  Please don't hesitate to contact me at with questions throughout the once-in-a-lifetime process.  I look forward to seeing you on campus!
