About Winthrop University
Winthrop University was founded when David Bancroft and twenty-one students met in a one room building in Columbia, South Carolina back in 1886. Winthrop University found its permanent home in Rock Hill, South Carolina in 1895, when brick by brick, the one room school house was moved.
Winthrop is home of the Winthrop Golden Eagles. The university participates in Division I athletics and is a part of the Big South Conference.
About Rock Hill
Rock Hill is located in York County, just 25 miles from Charlotte,
North Carolina and about 70 miles north of Columbia, South
Upon entering Rock Hill, one will notice a sign that says “no room for racism,” the city’s bold statement on equality of all its visitors as well as citizens. One will also notice four “Civitas” statues on Dave Lyle Boulevard. Each of these “Civitas” hold discs that symbolize the four different industries in the city: gears for business, flame for knowledge, stars strand for inspiration and creativity, and a lightning bolt for energy.
