Admissions Counselor: Craig GeroWelcome to Winthrop University.  My name is Craig Gero,  I am excited that I am part of the Winthrop Admissions team!  I am from West Palm Beach, Florida.  I graduated from Florida Southern College in Lakeland, Florida with a Bachelor's degree in Business Personnel.  While at Florida Southern I was part of a National Championship Baseball team.  After graduation I worked in student services in a college setting for 26 years.  I believe that my experience will help me assist you in making your college decision.

There are many factors that will go into you making your college decision.  You will spend more time outside the classroom than in while attending college.  I believe, that Rock Hill, South Carolina provides the perfect college environment to allows students to have the small town feel while living in the 5th largest city in South Carolina.  We also are just a short drive from the large city of Charlotte, North Carolina.

Winthrop has great academic programs, long traditions, smaller enrollments and a BEAUTIFUL campus.  If you have not had a chance to visit our campus, I would suggest you take advantage of the many opportunities to do so.  Typically, after visiting colleges, students will know quickly if they have an interest in that institution.  In addition to the beautiful campus, Winthrop provides numerous opportunities for students to grow and acquire leadership skills that are required in today's world. Winthrop has many clubs and organizations that will allow you to get involved.  Students that are more involved outside the classroom do better inside the classroom.

During my career in higher education, I have learned that students can feel overwhelmed by the college decision process.  That is normal but also where I will help.  Please do not hesitate to contact me no matter how small the question.  I look forward to meeting you and your family in the near future.  And remember, Go Eagles!!!
