“To honor the traditions and values of Winthrop University through the engagement of alumni worldwide.”

About Us

The Winthrop Alumni Association is a non-profit organization that serves more than 60,000 alumni, the university and students. 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!

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.

Fountain Restoration ProjectFountain Restoration Project

The historic campus fountain stopped working in 2018, nearly a century after its installation. It cannot be restored but rather must be replaced to fully function again. Fundraising efforts currently underway will replace the existing fountain and restore this iconic symbol of Winthrop. Estimated cost for the Fountain Restoration Project is $500,000. The project will be funded by the generosity of Winthrop alumni, community members and friends. Learn More
