“Medium-sized” Winthrop University in South Carolina “is a public university, which is reflected in its diverse student body, but it has a private university feel in terms of the small size of classes, the caliber of the faculty, and the beauty of the campus.” There are many programs and options here. Business and education majors are especially popular. As at most schools, professors are “hit or miss.” Some are “almost never available.” Many others are “easy to approach” and “passionate about what they teach.”
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
