ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA - Winthrop University will welcome new students and transfer students during Orientation sessions in June and August.

Freshmen entering in the fall are required to attend one of four Orientation sessions. Family members are encouraged to take advantage of Family Orientation, a program offered concurrently with the first day of each of the student sessions.

Review the schedules for freshmen, transfers and families for the two-day Orientation sessions:

Freshman Orientation sessions are as follows: Session I is June 15-16, Session II is June 20-21, Session III is June 23-24 and Session IV is June 27-28. Transfer students entering Winthrop this fall may take advantage of Transfer Orientation in August.

Orientation is a program designed to assist new students and their families in adjusting to life as a Winthrop student. During Orientation, new students meet current student leaders, faculty and staff, receive information on academic expectations, opportunities for involvement, and what it means to be part of the Winthrop community and to live in the residence halls.

In addition to registering for classes, freshmen will receive a copy of the university's common book, “The Girl Who Smiled Beads” by Clemantine Wamariya.

Alicia Marstall, interim director of New Student and Family Programs, Miranda Knight, assistant dean of students, and the student Orientation staff have designed programs and activities so students will interact with upperclassmen, Orientation faculty mentors, key campus personnel and each other to build a web of support for their Winthrop experience.
