Parent Programs

Dear Parents and Family Members,

Welcome to Winthrop University! We are very proud and thankful that your son/daughter chose to attend WU. For those of you who are sending your child to school as an incoming freshman, take a moment and pat yourselves on the back. Congratulations on getting your son or daughter this far! For those of you who are sending your child back to school, congratulations to you as well and good luck for another successful year.

Winthrop University provides services for parents to integrate and engage themselves into the WU community, serve as a source for information, and to “bridge” the relationship between family and the faculty/staff at Winthrop. Current programs and services that we offer are the monthly Eagle Family Connection e-Newsletter, Family Orientation, and Family Day.

Remember, please encourage your child to get involved on campus. Studies show that students who get involved and build relationships with faculty and staff are more likely to graduate than those who do not make connections. Winthrop has over 180 clubs and organizations that help students fill their niche.

Please be assured that the Division of Student Life Staff is very interested in the well being of every student here at Winthrop University and anticipate the opportunity to partner with you in their overall success.

If you ever need assistance or have any questions, please feel free to contact the Office of New Student and Parent Programs at 803/323-2387 or via email at We are available to help parents and family members!
