"Winthrop was very influential in preparing me and giving me the skills I needed to succeed...My time at Winthrop really challenged me. It’s a school where you really earn your education. Faculty make sure you put in the time and effort to develop everything you need…Faculty members like Associate Professor of Mass Communication Nathaniel Frederick and Professor of Political Science Adolphus Belk were so encouraging.
