Winthrop University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (6)
Winthrop University is great for those seeking a small-mid size school, with excellent curriculum and professors. Rock Hill has a small-town feel but you are only 15-20 minutes away from Charlotte. The campus on Winthrop is beautiful and one of its best attributes.
Winthrop University offers a very diverse set of Psychology classes. Most students in the psychology program do intend on continuing in a graduate program and professors are very helpful in understanding that. Most courses are rigorous, but definitely prepares you for any graduate program. Professors are very helpful and personable, especially the department head.
Overall great experiences while I was at school. The professors were deeply invested in how you did on a day to day basis and were always available to help when needed. Past the curriculum, I don't feel like every situation in the career field I was prepared for. That is the one thing I think they need to improve at least in my area of study. Other than that, I was very happy with my choice of attending college at Winthrop University
Winthrop has a very diverse student population as well as degree options. There were students varying from a music or theology major to chemistry and computer science. I was an athlete at Winthrop and enjoyed everything about it. I still keep in contact with some of my professors because they really are there to encourage you to follow your dreams. I chose Winthrop because of how safe the campus made me feel and how friendly and inviting everyone was. I felt right at home at Winthrop.
I received a BA from Winthrop University in History. The classes were well structured with realistic expectations. Professors were easily accessible, and most were excited about teaching. Access to information was great, on campus and through the internet. Librarians are staffed and easily approachable. The databases are up to date and have almost limitless acceptable information. Campus was always active, and the surrounding town had stuff going on if you decided to go and look for it. All and all, a great experience. Just be sure you do your research on what is available with your degree upon completion. I'm starting a Masters of Teaching at Clemson in May. I'm hoping this will help future students decide where to go, but also that I'll get some financial help for my future.
Winthrop University has a small music department but the quality of instruction and musicianship from of the student is just as good as any of the large Universities such as University of South Carolina, and Furman University. The professors are very caring, and knowledgeable of their subject matter. Winthrop's location also adds to the education experience. Rock Hill, SC is located in an school district that has great band programs and is close to Fort Mill, SC, home of the Carolina Crown Drum and Bugle Corp. Winthrop does not have a marching band. This allows for music education majors to work with the local marching bands as instructors and teach private lessons to middle school and high school students. Winthrop size also allows student's to participate in other ensembles that may not involve their major instrument. I was a trombone player but I was also able to sing in the chorus, sing in an opera, play in small ensemble such as trombone quarter and jazz combos. Overall I loved my experience at Winthrop and it was a great college choice for me and it highly recommend it.
