About Us

The Winthrop Alumni Association is a non-profit organization that serves more than 60,000 alumni, the university, and students. Members of the association promote the growth and progress of the university, encourage loyalty among former students, strengthen tradition, and engage prospective students to attend Winthrop. The Executive Board serves as the governing body of all Winthrop alumni and oversees association business, and all active alumni are eligible to serve on the Executive Board. Graduates of Winthrop are automatically members of the Association. A student regularly enrolled at Winthrop for at least one year who does not graduate becomes a non-graduate alumna/us, while students who completed less than one year may request approval for non-graduate alumni status. There are no annual dues or special requirements for becoming a member. All it takes is dedication to actively stay in touch with the university.
