    Even though Thompson cafe is like cafeteria food, it still feels like home cooked meals at times. The dining experience that Thompson has, is very similar to a normal buffet restaurant, very clean and modern.

    Blah!! Digs gets tiring when that all you eat, but it is good! Don't be fooled by the food in the cafe when you come there. Trust me it is totally different throughout the year. Thomson needs more to choose from. I can deal without the same greasy food everyday

    The food at the various dining places is very good!. It's not like home cooking.....but it's a long way from High School lunch! It took some time to get used to budgeting and using the Cafe Cash. However, I consider it to be a good life experience. I was determined not to run out of my cash before the semester ended. I accomplished my goal.

    The food is above average. Winthrop has all the resturants of a growing city itself and its cafe stays open late to essure everyone can get a good meal.

    The café has its days but the pasta is usually good. You can never go wrong with the salad or fries. They also have specialty days that be really good. The places in Digs are really good and they have a Starbucks on campus.

    I chose to not pledge a sorority in my Freshman year in order to firmly grasp my academic life. If I am able to continue at Winthrop, I may consider pledging a sorority in my Junior year.

    Very important on Greek Life. The Divine 9 tend to be more separated but in the end they all support one another.

    Greek life is important and a big deal on campus but in a good way. Students who meet the GPA requirement, attend the interest meeting and are well-rounded are encouraged to join Greek Life. It can be a lifelong lifetime fulfilling experience that can only be beneficial.

    Greek life is very alive at Winthrop University! You'll see them every week around common time. They have fundraisers and fun events around campus, especially during the Fall. And don't forget the cool parties they throw!

    Winthrop University has an amazing Greek Life program. I myself am involved in Greek Life. The Greek Life at Winthrop is very welcoming. They are outgoing and open for questions that interested students may have. Greek Life is very involved in Rock Hill's community as well as on campus. Greek Life is a wonderful way to be involved on campus and one can meet so many people that they might not normally have a chance to know. Greek Life is a great way to express one's passion for their school. And remember you are always wearing your letters.

    Greek life is a major part of our campus. I personally did not rush, but sometimes I wish I had. I have a lot of friends in fraternities and sororities and they all love it. Just a fun fact, our greek students have a higher average GPA than our non-greek students.

    I am a member of Greek Life and I will say that it is one of the best decisions I have ever made. This is one of the organizations that I joined my freshman year. Greek Life at Winthrop can be a lot different than the Greek Life at other larger schools. You do not only receive support from members of your own organization, but the Greek community as a whole. Greek Life makes it really easy to make friends and gives you a lot of connections throughout Winthrop and the Rock Hill community. It also allows you to have things to do that not everyone at Winthrop has access to.

    I am not a part of Greek life but I have friends who are, and they absolutely love it! There is a great group of friends they are a part of and they are all so close.
