Where Passion, People and Purpose Unite

Winthrop continues to distinguish itself as a university of first choice, grounded in a student-centered education provided by a faculty committed to prepare students for successful and fulfilling lives. Individually and collectively, Winthrop University donors and philanthropists have an immediate impact upon the sustained quality of education provided to our students. Winthrop continues to receive national recognition, including its eighth-place ranking among Southern public universities by U.S. News & World Report, due in part to the private support of our donors.

Carra Lyons '18

My Winthrop Experience

More than a decade ago, Carra Lyons ’18 had a life that looked very different than it does today. She had to abruptly stop her K-12 education at the age of 12 for family and financial reasons. She obtained her GED at 17, started at York Technical College at 21 and then transferred to Winthrop, where she would graduate from the honors program.
