Alumni and Friends, 

Our next Winthrop University Alumni Book Club selection is “Libertie: A Novel” by Kaitlyn Greenidge. The reading period is Oct. 14 - Dec. 16, so be sure to get your hands on a copy - physical, digital or audio - before we begin. To join the Virtual Alumni Book Club, click here.

Save the dates for Homecoming and Reunion celebrations this fall! The Alumni Association will celebrate milestone reunions and Homecoming over the course of three weeks this fall. Due to continuing concerns over the COVID-19 delta variant, a single traditional Homecoming and Reunion weekend for alumni is not possible this year.

Instead, alumni are invited to come home to Winthrop one of three weekends - Oct. 8-9, Nov. 5-6 or Nov. 12-13 - to take part in festivities that best meet your schedule and interests. The Alumni Association is planning a variety of activities so there will be something for everyone!

If your class year ends in '1 or '6, you are celebrating a reunion this year! You should have received a Class Reunion brochure in the mail that outlines all of the activities for your class. If you did not receive reunion information, please contact the Alumni Association at or visit the class reunion website for details.

Represent the WU! Available for a limited time, we are offering a 2021 Homecoming T-shirt! Purchase your T-shirt for $15 by Monday, Oct. 11 to wear during Homecoming and Reunion weeks. T-shirts will be shipped to the mailing address you provide in your order. Please note T-shirts can only be mailed inside the United States. We look forward to seeing you in your garnet and gold! E-mail or call 803/323-2145 if you need more information.

Find out more! Visit the Homecoming and Reunion website for the complete list of activities and information on how to register. If you are unable to attend in person, virtual events will be hosted as well. Below are some of the events you can take part in whether you celebrate in person or virtually.

We look forward to safely celebrating with you!

Winthrop Ever Stand,
