Thanks to all alumni, friends and families for participating in Virtual Homecoming Week 2020, Nov. 9-14! We enjoyed a number of events from Big Stuff Hide and Seek, Facebook Live events, coffee chats, "Spirit Check" challenges, fitness and cooking sessions, social media takeovers, online socials, and virtual tours and exhibits.

Head over to Facebook to view video highlights of the virtual events and check out Instagram takeovers from Mat Fretschel ’03, Byron Putman ’94 and Zainab Ghadiyali ’09. 

Class Reunions

Check back for more information about class reunion activities and events that have been rescheduled to spring 2021. Alumni with class years ending in ’0 or ’5 will soon hear more from the Alumni Association about spring activities, which will include the Class of 1970 50th reunion wine and cheese reception and class dinner, class reunion gatherings, the Winthrop Archives memorabilia display, trolley tours and the Alumni Reunion and Awards Luncheon.

Student Events

Because Homecoming and Reunion Weekend is a tradition the Winthrop community looks forward to each year, the Division of Student Affairs is considering hosting a spirit week in the spring 2021 depending on guidance at that time from the CDC and DHEC; however, activities have not been confirmed.



Please check back for the newest information and follow us on social media for the latest udpates. For questions or assistance about Homecoming and Reunion Weekend, please contact the Winthrop University Alumni Association at 800/578-6545 or email
