What is your favorite local restaurant in Rock Hill? – Nishie G

What is your favorite event to attend in Rock Hill or local area? Christmasville

What is your favorite thing about Rock Hill?  I love that Rock Hill feels small even though it is not. It’s like getting a small town and a city all in one. Having Charlotte nearby is an added bonus.

Why should a student pick Winthrop?   Winthrop is a place to learn to think critically and problem solve. You can learn from people from all different walks of life and learn how to work together to solve problems.

What advice do you have for students during their search process?   Check out the city/town that surrounds each school. You are going to live here for the next four years so, you should probably know how to get to Target and if the feel of the city fits who you are.

Favorite Food? All of it, I love to eat!
Favorite Book or Author?  Da Vinci Code - Dan Brown
Favorite Hobby?  I love to hike with my family.
