Orientation student smilingROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA - Winthrop University will welcome new students and transfer students during Orientation sessions in June, July and August.

Freshmen entering in the fall are required to attend one of five Orientation sessions. Family members are encouraged to take advantage of Family Orientation, a program offered concurrently with the first day of each of the student sessions.

New transfer students entering in the fall are required to attend one of six Orientation sessions. Family Orientation is offered during each full day Transfer Orientation session.

Here are the schedules for students and families for the two-day Orientation sessions:

Session I is from June 12-13
Session II from June 17-18
Session III from June 20-21
Session IV from June 24-25
Session V from Aug. 14-15

Orientation is a program designed to assist new students and their families in adjusting to life as a Winthrop student. During Orientation, new students meet current student leaders, faculty and staff, receive information on academic expectations, opportunities for involvement, and what it means to be part of the Winthrop community and stay in the residence halls.

In addition to registering for classes, the freshmen will receive a copy of the university's common book for 2019-20, “Just Mercy” by Bryan Stevenson.

Callie Smith, director for New Student and Family Programs (NSFP); Lori Harris, office manager; and the student Orientation staff have designed programs and activities so students will interact with upperclassmen, Orientation Faculty Mentors, key campus personnel and each other to build a web of support for their Winthrop experience.

Students and families are highly encouraged to download the "Orientation at Winthrop" guide within the Winthrop University Guides app, available for iPhones and Androids. The app has information about Winthrop, the NSFP office, Orientation students and staff, and more. The Orientation schedules are currently available in more detail on the app as well.
