Students - October 30, 2019

Dear Students:

Fall is a special time on campus. In addition to campus happenings, cooler weather is (finally!) here, as is the fall Winthrop Magazine. I encourage you to read this edition by clicking the link below.  

This Winthrop Magazine begins with a spotlight on the fascinating work of Assistant Professor of Anthropology Brent Woodfill, who is in a race against time to save and preserve a collection of historic Maya artifacts from more than 1,200 years ago. Read more about Brent and his discoveries on pages 2-3.

There’s much more in this issue as well, including:

· A look at two destination programs – Bachelor of Professional Studies and esports – that will help put Winthrop on the radar of prospective students.

· Features on junior Justin Rose and two alumni: Jeuel Bannister Esmacher ’44, one of 38 World War II code breakers who is featured in a New York Times bestselling book, and Christopher Tidwell ’85, the CEO of Magformers, an innovative STEM-focused toy company.

· A look at some of our recent highlights, and news from the areas of university advancement and alumni relations.

I encourage you to explore the magazine by clicking on the link above. Please share the magazine with anyone who may be interested in all that is happening at Winthrop.

I hope you are having a successful fall semester, and I look forward to seeing you on campus.
