Message from the Executive Director
March 2017

Dear Alumni and Friends:

Worldwide Winthrop Day: Show your Eagle pride on Saturday, April 8, as we celebrate Worldwide Winthrop Day! If you're near campus, stop by to join in on the day's events between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. We will welcome admitted students and their parents with music, food, beanbag toss, photos with Big Stuff, face painting and more. And alumni, we need your photos! Wear your Winthrop gear wherever you are in the world on April 8 and tweet, Instagram or post photos to Facebook using the hashtag #WUreadytosoar.

Winthrop Night with the Charlotte Knights: Join fellow alumni on Friday, April 21, for the Third Annual Winthrop Night with the Charlotte Knights at BB&T Ballpark. There will be a pre-game gathering at 5:30 p.m. at Mellow Mushroom Uptown, 255 W. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in Charlotte. The baseball game begins at 7:05 p.m. and will be followed by fireworks. Discount tickets ($16) are available for purchase at http://bit.ly/winthropnight.

Winthrop Advocacy Network: Winthrop is launching an exciting new initiative that will give our alumni and supporters a more prominent role advocating on its behalf. By joining the Winthrop Advocacy Network, you will have the chance to be better informed about the important issues being addressed at the South Carolina State Capitol and bring our many voices together to build support for legislation of importance to Winthrop's future. We will ask you to act no more than two or three times during the legislative session. Doing so will take just a few minutes but will have a tremendous impact.

Winthrop Plan Receptions Continue: The Alumni Association is excited to host regional alumni receptions with President Dan Mahony as he introduces The Winthrop Plan, the university's strategic plan through 2025. See the calendar below to find a reception in your area. We hope to see you soon so that you can learn more about Winthrop's future!
