What makes Winthrop special to you?
What makes Winthrop special to me is the friendly, family community atmosphere here among the staff, faculty, and students and their families!  I love being able to meet and greet so many guests and interact with our campus population, and I try to make it a point to learn the new folks on campus and call them by their first name.  Winthrop has so many resources to offer students of all ages here too and that is special.

What is your favorite part of Winthrop?
Besides coming to a clean, beautiful, and great diverse campus, I feel safe here while at work.  I am rewarded daily while meeting and greeting prospective students and their families from South Carolina, throughout the United States and the whole world.  Being part of Winthrop's workforce that loves sharing knowledge so we all can be successful also makes me want to remain at Winthrop forever!

What advice do you have for an incoming student?
Winthrop has something for everyone (first time freshmen, military, adults of all ages) with the wide range of majors (undergraduate and graduate); smaller classrooms so professors can get to know you; clubs, student services, and resources; and professors, faculty, staff, and coaches who truly care about you, and you being successful in life because of your Winthrop education and experience.
