Wingate University


Wingate University is known for its focus on preparing students for the future. A quick look at Wingate history shows why.

Wingate University has established itself as a leading North Carolina university today, but it wasn’t even a college when it was founded in 1896. The Baptist associations in Union County, North Carolina, and Chesterfield County, South Carolina, sought to provide literacy education from first grade through high school.

At the time, public schools were scarce in the Carolina Piedmont. The location was chosen because it was close to the Seaboard Air Line Railway. It was also close to Meadow Branch Baptist Church.

The Wingate school was built on 10 acres that had fine oak trees and a spring.
