Winthrop University strives to offer its students a setting in which they can mature culturally, as well as intellectually. In an effort to provide a well-rounded education, the Winthrop faculty has approved a cultural events policy. The purpose of the cultural events requirement is to establish and foster a life-enriching pattern of cultural involvement. A record of student attendance at cultural events is included on semester grade reports and becomes part of the student’s permanent record and senior audit.
By attending cultural events, a student experiences firsthand the diverse offerings of culture and artistic expression found in a community. Approved cultural events cover a wide variety of programs both on and off campus. Events that are selected are chosen from areas such as plays, films, art exhibitions, dance, and musical performances or from lectures of general appeal. The Cultural Events Committee determines what events are accepted for cultural event status.Each semester, a calendar of approved cultural events is prepared and posted. Over the course of a semester, more cultural events are added to the calendar as they are approved.
