Welcome Week 2019

Welcome, New Students!

Welcome Back, Current Eagles!


We are excited you are part of our community! Welcome Week at Winthrop is one of our biggest and best traditions. It's the official kick-off to the academic year. Upperclassmen and new students are encouraged to take advantage of all that Welcome Week has to offer - meet friends, get engaged, and find something new to try!

The events and activities planned during Welcome Week are designed to be informative, engaging, and fun. Some sessions provide strategies and tips for academic adjustment, while others help you identify resources and opportunities for involvement on campus. Still other activities offer opportunities for entertainment and making new friends, as well as earning Cultural Events credit.

All students are expected to attend the mandatory events listed on the schedule (as they apply). These events are designed to assist you in making a successful transition to Winthrop University.
  • Mandatory Freshmen Event
  • Mandatory Transfer & Adult Student Event
  • Mandatory Resident Event
DSU sponsors many of the Welcome Week activities. For a better idea of what to expect during Welcome Week, check out this video from DSU from the 2018 Welcome Week!

We invite you to take part in all that Welcome Week has to offer and are so glad to have you here as a contributing member of the Winthrop Community!

If the Office of New Student and Family Programs can be of assistance in any way, please feel free to contact us at 803/323-2387 or via email at orientation@winthrop.edu. We look forward to seeing you at Welcome Week events!
