    Activities for Everyone!

    Garnet & Gold Sponsors:

  • Come Home to Winthrop! Join us for Homecoming and Alumni Reunion November 9 - 11, 2012!

    This is your weekend. Make plans now to spend it at our alma mater reconnecting with classmates, discovering what has changed on campus, and fondly remembering the things that will always remain the same. Whether you are a gradu-ate from 1942 or 2012, I feel sure you will agree that the Winthrop Experience changed your life.

    As you browse through this brochure of reunions, athletic events, and other campus activities, you will find there is something for everyone. Perhaps the name of a classmate receiving an alumni award will prompt you to attend the Awards Ceremony on Saturday. Maybe an early morning bike ride before heading out to tailgating sounds like a great way to start the day. Spend some time on Friday night with your classmates at the Alumni Happy Hour. Whatever your interests, the broad list of activities is designed to make ev-eryone feel welcome.

    I look forward to seeing you at Homecoming and Alumni Reunion 2012!

    Garnet & Gold Forever!
