Students - December 17, 2021

Dear Students:

It is hard to believe that we are wrapping up 2021 and that 2022 is just around the corner! We are finishing a successful fall semester, and December Commencement is tomorrow!

I want to share with you the fall Winthrop Magazine, which contains several compelling stories and profiles that may interest you.

I encourage you to read about:

  • The Fountain Restoration Project, which is underway to raise funds to replace the iconic front-campus fountain that holds many memories for our alumni and campus community;
  • The unique Scout projects that provide beauty and functionality to on-campus spaces;
  • Important initiatives from the Department of Human Nutrition to address food insecurity and the availability of fresh food in our local community;
  • The recent passing of two notable women – Louise Pettus ’43 and Anne Springs Close – who personified generosity through their gifts of time, service and resources to make Winthrop a better place; and
  • The latest campus news, alumni news and university advancement updates.

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 look forward to welcoming you back in January for another successful semester of learning. I hope you and your family have a peaceful holiday season.
