— Winthrop University’s campus prepped for Saturday’s “Worldwide Winthrop Day” by rolling out new t-shirts and a social media campaign.

Students on Friday were asked to swap an old t-shirt, to be donated to charity, in exchange for a new shirt they can write on and fill in the blank in “Winthrop. Better Than ....”

The school encouraged those wearing the shirts to post their photo on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. The activity is tied to Saturday’s “Worldwide Winthrop Day,” when the school will host more than 600 admitted students and their families. The prospective students will tour dorms, meet professors and have ice cream with President Jamie Comstock.

University leaders are encouraging alumni, friends and current students and employees to take part in “Worldwide Winthrop Day” by sending in photos from around the world of themselves in Winthrop gear.
