Admissions Counselor: Kim FosterWelcome to Winthrop!  My name is Kim Foster and I am an Admissions Counselor.

Hailing from Columbia, South Carolina, Winthrop University was my "home away from home" for several years. I graduated from Winthrop in May 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and a minor in Social Sciences.  During my time at Winthrop, I became involved in the Ambassador Program and the Peer Mentor Program. I also participated in a variety of volunteer services.

Winthrop provides numerous opportunities for students to grow and acquire skills in leadership and professionalism.  Our wide array of organizations gives students the freedom to expand and develop skills that will be useful throughout their lives. My advice to new students is to get involved and never be afraid of something new.  New adventures and experiences are waiting at your door!

My experience in assisting and mentoring new students as a Peer Mentor created a passion for me to serve in higher education. My goal is to simplify the college selection process for you and your family!  I am very excited to be a part of  your college journey and will be happy to help whenever I can.  If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me at  I look forward to seeing you on campus!
