ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA – Praised for its diverse student body and beautiful campus, Winthrop University is considered among the "Best in the Southeast" by the Princeton Review.

“It’s gratifying to see the Princeton Review continuing to recognize the variety of attributes that make Winthrop a truly special place to earn a college degree. The university has built a well-earned reputation for a student-focused education that equips our graduates to succeed in their chosen fields and as informed citizens. We’re pleased to see our students sharing their positive feedback with the Princeton Review, which reaffirms that they are receiving an exceptional Winthrop experience,” said Mahony.

The Princeton Review compiles its list based on institutional data collected directly from the colleges, visits to schools, input from college counselors and the opinions of The Princeton Review’s staff. Students rated their own schools and answered questions about themselves, their peers and campus life. Schools selected by the publication as “Best Colleges” are considered “academically outstanding and well worth consideration.”

The schools in the "2018 Best Colleges: Region by Region" list also are rated in six categories - academics, admissions selectivity, financial aid, fire safety, quality of life and green adaptability. Criteria for each rating is available here.
