Ciara's Travel Schedule

Admissions Counselor Ciara FriersonHola Y Bienvenidos!  My name is Ciara Frierson and I am the bilingual Admissions Counselor at Winthrop University. I am a Columbia, South Carolina native, but graduated from Stratford High School near Summerville, South Carolina.  After high school, I made the decision to attend Winthrop University, and never regretted my choice.

I chose to call Winthrop home due to its small sizes, its central location, and the many resources and organizations that the university offers to help position students for academic success.  In May of 2015, I received my undergraduate degree with a Bachelor of Arts in the Modern Languages and a concentration in Spanish.

While attending Winthrop, I was inducted into Sigma Delta Pi, the national collegiate Hispanic Honor Society, and served as community service co-chair for Plain Jane, an all women's organization. In addition to this, I served as a Spanish Peer tutor in the Academic Success Center where I had the opportunity to provide one on one peer tutoring to students for who found learning a foreign language challenging.  I also took advantage of studying abroad in Seville, Spain for a semester.  This experience helped me gain a command of the Spanish language and culture.

As a bilingual Admissions Counselor I want to help you through each step of the admissions process. My advise to prospective students is to embrace the Winthrop experience.  We encourage all of our students to Live, Learn, and Lead.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me at  I look forward to sharing information with you regarding opportunities available at Winthrop.  Buena Suerte!
