While social distancing guidelines and closures due to COVID-19 make connections among our alumni family challenging, Winthrop has rescheduled class reunion activities and events from November 2020 to Spring 2021 to help ensure we can safely gather and celebrate.

Class reunion activities that will be moved to Spring 2021 include events for the following classes that would have celebrated in November 2020: 2015, 2010, 2005, 2000, 1995, 1990, 1985, 1980, 1975, 1970, 1965, 1960, 1955, 1950, 1945.  These events include the Class of 1970 50th reunion wine and cheese reception and class dinner, class reunion gatherings, Winthrop Archives memorabilia display, trolley tours and the Alumni Reunion and Awards Luncheon.

At this time, Homecoming activities and events will be hosted by Winthrop as planned for the week of November 9-14, 2020. These events include student activities, Homecoming on the Green, Winthrop Athletics events and Homecoming tailgate.
