- The students left Charleston, South Carolina, at midday Tuesday, Sept. 3, and are expected to arrive at the Winthrop campus around 5 p.m. Depending on the storm, they will likely stay through at least part of the weekend.
This is the second time in two years that Winthrop has helped the College of Charleston, a fellow public higher education institution. In 2017, Winthrop hosted dozens of its students during Hurricane Irma.
