What Students Are Saying

3.93 Average Rating
Get to know your advisor.
Molly from Summerville, SC
Try to make friends with almost everyone you meet, because the new faces may be the faces that make it far into your future.
DO NOT BE AFRAID TO SPEAK IN CLASS!
Also, become close with your professor's, it will be a lot easier for you at the end of the semester. If they know you from the first day, then they monitor your progress a little more closely and it helps you stand out in class.
Nontombe from Columbia, SC
Talk to people. It's easy to make friends if you just talk to them, and professor's really appreciate students who speak up in class. Ask questions. Winthrop loves critical thinkers. When you have something to say, there is someone to listen.
Rachel from Lexington, SC
Always do your reading assignments. Even if you do not talk about it in class does not mean you won't be tested on it. I had a proffessor that did lecture and never refered to anything in the book. I failed the first test because half the test came from the book. Also, learn how to bargain hunt for books. Either have a friend you has already had the class leaned you their book, become buddies with someone in the class, or do like I do and buy the edition before the one the teacher wants (unless it is a math class). Books relatively stay the same from edition to edition with statistics changing. If you have a previous edition you will be okay on the readings just get with a classmate to make sure all the statistics and terms are correct or have not been added too. Learn where quick spots to grab food are on campus between classes or carry lots of snacks to get you through until you can get a meal. You don't always have time to stop at the cafeteria for lunch before your next class. Don't waste your money at the vending machines either. Walgreen's is in walking distance (everyday I did this), go grab snacks and drinks there weekly or daily to carry with you during the day so your not wasting those much needed quarters at the ball game later that day.
Chelsea from Columbia, SC
There are only 5 things you need to know to survive at Winthrop.
1: check your email, important things that a Winthrop students need to know are sent through email, so check your email daily
2: DO YOUR WORK!! I can't stress how important it is to do your work. It is so easy to get behind in classes because it is REALLY HARD to get back on track.
3: Get involved in extra curriculum activities on campus. Getting involved is more important than you think, when your grade point average is doing so well, you'll have extra curriculum activities to fall back on.
4: If you need help, don't be to afraid to ask your professors. Remember, NO QUESTION IS A DUMB QUESTION.
5: Try to get a job if you can, unless you have cash flow from somewhere else. Having money at Winthrop will help you tremendously.
If you follow these 5 simple rules you will be a succesful college student.
Eric from Rock Hill, SC
Get involved in as much as possible because it gives you multiple opportunities to meet new people. This is going to be important because one you get to a new place it can feel quite lonely, but getting to know the people around you will make college life much more comfortable!
Hannah from York, SC
always carry cash with you because you will never know when you need it. and when you register for your second semester just wait until everyone else has finished, you will still get the classes you need. there's this thing called eagle express, kind of like a campus grocery store, when between the hours of 11 and 5 you can get a quick lunch when your in a hurry to class.
Jacquin from Columbia, SC
visit the college and town to see if a small community feel is right for you before applying.
