Winthrop Admissions Counselor: Gabriel PaxtonWelcome to Winthrop University!  My name is Gabriel Paxton and I am excited to be a member of the Winthrop University Admissions team.  I am from Rock Hill SC.  I graduated from Winthrop University in 2017 with a Bachelor's degree in Political Science.  While at Winthrop, I ran Cross Country and Track for the Eagles as well as participated in the Honors program.  I also spent a semester of my undergraduate studies in Prague, Czech Republic where I studied central European culture and politics.

After graduation from Winthrop, I attended Central European University in Budapest, Hungary where I completed a Master's degree in Nationalism and Religious Studies.  I have experience working with various student led initiatives, NGO's and international governance organization such as the UN.  All these experiences and opportunities are tied to my initial decision to attend Winthrop back in 2014.

The college search and admissions process is an exciting and important step!  As a Winthrop graduate, I know the amazing experiences that this campus has to offer - from small class sizes to involved professors, Winthrop is most importantly a university that values your personal success.  I hope that through helping you in this decision, you may see how wonderful Winthrop is.  The opportunity to achieve a world class education in a small, personal environment is unparalleled.  Beyond the classroom, Winthrop can offer you the ability to see the world, push yourself and grow as a student.

Moving forward in your admissions process, I cannot wait to show you how you can find your place here in this diverse and eclectic Winthrop community!
