TOLMs 2020

TOLMs are upperclassmen students at Winthrop who work with new transfer, military, and adult students and their families at Orientation and throughout their first semester. These students work hard to train and prepare for helping new students in their transition. At Orientation, new transfer students are assigned to a TOLM who will serve as their Winthrop point person and lead sessions to give students exclusive knowledge on what it means to be a Winthrop Eagle.

Transfer Institution: York Technical College
Advice for New Eagles: Don't put too much pressure on yourself to be the best. Yes, try your hardest; but don't stress over small things. There are always ways to fix the problem, and you have tons of resources at Winthrop to help you as well.
Campus Resource Spotlight: The Writing Center

Nico Sweet

Nico Sweet

Major: Fine Arts with a concentration in Painting (College of Arts & Sciences)
Transfer Institution: York Technical College
A Campus Resource I Have Used: The Writing Center has really helped me in writing-intensive courses. I'm not a great writer so having extra help really improved my writing skills and brought up my grade.
Hometown: Fort Mill, SC
Fun Fact: I have double jointed thumbs!




TOLM Nicole HolbertNicole Holbert

Major: double major in History and Sociology (College of Arts & Sciences)
Transfer Institution: Georgia Northwestern Technical College, York Technical College
Advice for New Eagles: Take time to get to know your professors, especially within your department or in classes you're struggling in. Introduce yourself after class, and ask questions. We have small class sizes, so our professors tend to get to know their students by name. They are such a valuable resource on campus.

Campus Resource Spotlight: Health & Counseling Services (HCS) - I struggled with creating structure and processing my assignments in the midst of COVID-19, but my counselor gave me an outlet to talk through what I was going through, which helped me both emotionally and academically.
Hometown: Calhoun, GA
Fun Fact: I once hiked 60 miles in 48 hours in the Pisgah National Forest with my twin (Bonus fun fact: I’m a twin, and she also goes to Winthrop!)



Orientation Leader for New Spring Freshmen

Carrington WigfallCarrington Wigfall

Major: Theatre (College of Visual & Performing Arts) with a minor in Arts Management
Hometown: Charleston, SC
Wisdom for New Eagles: Take everything in, but don't get overwhelmed by it! College can be a big change, but Winthrop's caring community is even bigger. Don't be afraid to try something new and make a fresh start - that's what college is for!

How I Chose My Major: I went into Orientation with a major that I did not love, but after exploring my options more and meeting with faculty and staff at Orientation, I changed it to Theatre! I decided that college was the time to practice and learn more about what I loved, and that's exactly what I'm doing now. Talking to the staff, students, and alumni helped me feel confident in my decision, and because of it, I've made so many friends and have many opportunities!
Fun Fact: Despite my voice, I'm not actually British!
