Preview Day: DiGs concourse 


Preview Day Schedule of Events

Preview Days provide an in-depth view of academic and campus life at Winthrop. Faculty, staff and students are available from our academic and student life areas to tell you more about Winthrop and to answer your questions. The schedule also includes a student-guided tour of the campus and a tour of a sample residence hall room. Optional departmental tours are available for a more in-depth academic experience.

You also have the option of ending your day by cheering with our students and mascot, Big Stuff, as our Winthrop's men's basketball team competes against Charleston Southern at 2;00 p.m. Tickets are free and will be distributed at the athletics table from 9:00 - 10:00 a.m. during the academic showcase.
