ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA — Nearly 1,000 admitted students, their families and friends will take over campus on April 8 for Worldwide Winthrop Day!

Winthrop University’s annual event celebrates new students’ acceptance and shows them what it’s like to be a Winthrop Eagle. Winthrop officials will welcome everyone at 10 a.m. in Byrnes Auditorium.

The rest of the day will feature campus tours; opportunities on how to get involved at the Student Life Showcase; a closer look at their chosen track through academic meetings; and more.

Additional activities begin at 11 a.m., including:

• Photos in the Big Red Chair
• Free popcorn
• Music and dancing on the Community Concourse and Campus Green
• Caricature artists and face painting
• Corn hole

A new addition to this year’s event is the alumni panel, which will be from 1-3 p.m. in the Edge. Four young alumni will return to campus and conduct a question and answer session for attendees.

Current students and local alumni are invited to these activities.

If visiting campus isn’t an option on April 8, alumni and Eagle supporters across the globe can still share their Winthrop pride that day by wearing Winthrop gear. Post your photos to the Winthrop University or Winthrop Alumni Facebook pages, tweet them or Instagram them using the hashtag #WUreadytosoar.
