As a transfer student, Winthrop is the worstQuite BrightArt & Design Department
As a transfer student, Winthrop is the worst school to go to. I enjoyed myself more at my past college and learned more too. I made a 3.9 GPA at my old college; however, here at WU, I am having troubles maintaining a B! The teachers here are usually unkind! I had one teacher who criticized her class very very unkindly. I have a job and the teachers her make it sound like they want you to quit your job to only focus on their class. There is no chance to advance at Winthrop, there is no opportunity. I already told a friend whom was thinking about going to Winthrop to save the troubles and go somewhere else. Winthrop is by far the worst university. Save your money, save your time. The teachers here do not care about your success and administration is a nightmare.

I absolutely loved my experience at Winthrop, andQuite BrightEnglish
I absolutely loved my experience at Winthrop, and now that I work in higher education, I value it even more - I guess I didn't realize how rare it is to have actual relationships with faculty and staff when you're a student. It makes me sad when I talk to students and learn that they've never had a one-on-one conversation with a professor during their entire college experience. I learned so much at Winthrop and my English professors were whip-smart, funny, and engaging. Most of all, I knew that they cared about me as a student, and that I could talk to them about pretty much anything. I agree that Rock Hill sucks, but I wouldn't change a thing about my undergraduate years. Winthrop is a gem.
