Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of off campus dining options available that offer good student discounts, variety and convenience.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Everyone at HPU who is Greek, joined because they felt they couldn't make it on their own. So they called mommy and daddy up and said, "Hey, can you send over some money so I can buy some friends?"

Guys & Girls: Most people spend their time brainstorming ways to make themselves sound rich. You will probably later find out that they are struggling to pay for school.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: If you make a noise, you are getting written up. Good luck freshman.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: After your 5th month here, you will get tired of the smell of the café. You will be sick of eating Chick- fila, Subway, and the Bakery (which is not filling). And then you will be like... omg I want to eat off campus, then realize you are in the boondocks. Good food though...

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: Facilities are probably the best in the country.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: Everything is so easy. Ice cream truck.. free. Monday night movie... free (with popcorn and candy and drinks). Well, you are technically paying for this stuff.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Work hard, and you got it.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: Ethnicity- Not diverse. If someone wants to say it is, know that that is simply a lie.

Religion- NO. Everyone is Christian, and some very dedicated Christians. Have not met any Jewish people.

Social- Everyone wants to look the same. Like robots. They all love Lily, Jack Rodgers, Greek Shirts, and anything else preppy. Conservative is everyone's middle name.

Off-Campus Dining: Once you leave campus, there is NO WHERE to go. You are in the middle of now where, especially if you are coming from the northeast. There is fast food, and a couple of restaurants that close very early. Soooooo, you have a couple fast food options, gas stations, and hobos.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Overall, the HPU experience is nothing less than “extraordinary." Most students are happy to be attending such a fantastic school and are actually sad to be going home at breaks. The campus has such a welcoming atmosphere that students feel that they are at home no matter how far they have to travel to get there. Students become so involved with friends, clubs, sports, and organizations on campus that leaving all of that to go home is sad for a lot of students. When it comes to preparing students for the future, High Point gives them every opportunity, and all they have to do is take it. High Point produces well-rounded students who are prepared to enter graduate school or the job market as soon as they graduate. With a focus on a real world experience in the University's education, students leave HPU with the competence to jump into the workforce. Through internships and hands-on classroom work, students can feel confident they have the skills to succeed.

High Point is different from so many other schools because it is a small school with large-school facilities. The University has the resources of big schools, but the friendly and caring atmosphere and personal attention of a smaller institution. Professors know students by name and take an interest with what they are doing in and out of the classroom. High Point values a student's whole education, not what is just limited to the classroom. The professors and administration work on molding students not just academically, but also instilling in them a sense of generosity, self-awareness, and kindness toward their environment and fellow man.
