Eagle Experiences

"As an incoming student to Winthrop, I always looked at involvement as a way to elevate my Winthrop Experience. Of course, my main focus is academics, but that wouldn’t be the full 'college experience' I wanted. I turned to many clubs and organizations to try to find my fit, and luckily I found it in the Office of New Student & Family Programs (NSFP). This office allowed me to gain a newfound connection to my institution that I never thought was possible while giving me the opportunity to reach other incoming students to help elevate their Winthrop Experience as well."

 "Working with the Office of New Student & Family Programs (NSFP) has shown me that I’m capable of being a leader. This office has believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself and has pushed me to be my best self."
