Staff Report From York County CEO

Friday, September 7th, 2018

Praised for its diverse student body and beautiful campus, Winthrop University is considered among the "Best in the Southeast" by the Princeton Review.

Winthrop is one of 143 schools that the company recommends online at "2019 Best Colleges: Region by Region," a feature posted on its website.

Other notable mentions in Winthrop’s profile were the university’s cultural event requirement, Division I sports teams, professors’ availability and the Lois Rhame West Health, Physical Education and Wellness Center.

Winthrop President Dan Mahony said he is pleased that the Princeton Review has noted the diversity and value of the Winthrop experience.

“It’s gratifying to see the Princeton Review continuing to recognize the variety of attributes that make Winthrop a truly special place to earn a college degree. The university has built a well-earned reputation for a student-focused education that equips our graduates to succeed in their chosen fields and as informed citizens,” said Mahony.

The Princeton Review compiles its list based on institutional data collected directly from the colleges, visits to schools, input from college counselors and the opinions of the Princeton Review’s staff. Students rated their own schools and answered questions about themselves, their peers and campus life. Schools selected by the publication as “Best Colleges” are considered “academically outstanding and well worth consideration.”
