New Student and Family Programs

Be Sure to Attend

FAMILY WEEK 2020 - October 5-10


Dear Family Members,

Welcome! We are thrilled that your student has chosen to attend Winthrop University. At Winthrop, we understand that when a student goes to college, a family goes to college. We know that you will be an important part of your student's collegiate experience and hope that, through our programs and services, you will receive the knowledge and tools to help support your student during this exciting and challenging time.

We hope that you will take advantage of our Family Orientation program that is offered in conjunction with Freshman Orientation, Full Day Transfer Orientation sessions, Fall Orientation, and Spring Orientation.

If you haven't already, we hope you will sign up to receive our monthly e-newsletter, the Eagle Family Connection. If you attend Family Orientation and supply your email address during the registration process, you are automatically added to our list. You can also sign up by emailing us at

We also invite you to participate in the annual Family Day celebration, which is typically held the first Saturday in October. Due to COVID-19, we are unable to hold our traditional Family Day event. Instead, we have transformed this event into a week-long virtual series on October 5-10. We hope you'll join us!

Do not forget to "Like" us on Facebook! Our Family Programs Facebook page keeps you updated on what is going on in our office. If you have a question, feel free to message us or comment on our page.

We'd also like to encourage you to explore Rock Hill and the surrounding area. This is a great way to learn more about the city your student lives in, and you may find opportunities to spend time with your student.

If you have a question about Winthrop, our list of Frequently Asked Questions is a great place to start. If you can't find the answer to your question, please feel free to contact our office via email at or by phone at 803/323-2387.

At Winthrop, we view parents and family members of our students as partners in student success. If we can help you as you support your student throughout their career at Winthrop, please feel free to contact our office.  Good luck and best wishes!
