What Students Are Saying

3.93 Average Rating
Winthrop has a beautiful, historic campus - along with some new and updated buildings. The class sizes are fairly small, usually around 20 - 30 students depending on the subject. The campus is easy to navigate and get around, and you won't need a car to travel from class to class.
