For more than 100 years, Winthrop University has been a place where people have relished living, learning, and working. It is an environment that abounds with opportunities to be intellectually challenged, to build strong relationships, to research professional interests, and to excel in one's chosen endeavor. Integral to Winthrop's growth is the strength and happiness of its people. Therefore, much consideration is given to create an atmosphere that's truly fulfilling to its students, faculty, and staff and an environment with room for everyone to grow.
Winthrop University and the City of Rock Hill partner in a variety of initiatives focused on supporting Rock Hill's growth as a classic "college town," with all the livability, walkability, local business vitality and varied activities for which college towns are known nationwide.
