Welcome to Winthrop. Compiling information over the web is a great first step when beginning to think about where to attend college. As an admissions counselor, my job is to answer any questions you might have about Winthrop, share with you the amazing experiences and opportunities available to Winthrop students, and help determine whether Winthrop will be a good fit for you.
My name is Michael Abel, and I’m originally from Greensboro, North Carolina. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2002 with a degree in Political Science and obtained my master’s degree in Higher Education Administration and Student Affairs from the University of South Carolina in 2007. As a student at UNC, I wrote for the school newspaper, swam on the club swim team, and studied abroad in Spain the summer between my junior and senior year. While at Winthrop, you too can participate in similar activities or choose something totally different from the wide array of clubs and organizations available on campus.
I strongly encourage you to visit Winthrop to see first hand why current students, faculty, staff, and alumni are all excited to be part of this college community. Set in the heart of the small but growing city of Rock Hill, SC, Winthrop is a traditional college campus that allows for students to easily walk from their residence halls to class, the student union, or the library in minutes. A few miles from campus, students will find an historic downtown and only 20 minutes away, students can take part in all that Charlotte, NC has to offer. Furthermore, Rock Hill is just two hours from the mountains and three hours from the beach.
Please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call me (800-WINTHROP) to learn more about the Winthrop experience. I look forward to discussing with you what makes Winthrop a great university.
