Health & Safety: Many students have been attacked after being forced by the university to smoke cigarettes off campus. Some students have also been left in the dangerous city of high point left to their own device to get back to campus after being dropped off by university transportation and left in dangerous and unsafe areas. Highpoint U is more concerned with its image to prospective students than the actual well being of its current ones.

Academics: Do not go to High point university if you are looking for good academics. I recommend this school for students who need to be constantly babysat and are not yet very mature. This school focuses more on unnecessary garnishes like a free ice cream truck and waterfalls instead of focusing on academics. The student life is very close minded and if you are not a perfect straight edge student then they will quickly find a way to remove you. The surrounding area is also very bad many kids have been mugged after being forced by the university to travel off campus to smoke cigarettes

Parking: Cars on campus is free and open to freshman and parking lots are ugly so the campus has very few.

Guys & Girls: Come from Money – Everyone seems to come from money and the girls are all cute and the guys are all lax bros. Regardless of what they come from, every one is nice, decently smart and knows how to chug.

Majors: Major or Minor – It was fairly simple to apply for a major. You just fill out a form and turn it in. There wasn't anything special that I had to do for my Graphic Design or Game design major.

Greek Life: Greek Isn't Everything – A lot of students on campus do the greek life. Not everyone does though. The Greeks are there mostly for parties. They don't do much else and each Greek house has a label. It's okay not to go Greek.

Facilities: Slane Is Diverse – Slane center at HPU is the hub of everything. The office of student life to Chick-fila is in Slane. Starbucks to the Gym. They even have a bookstore, that doesn't sell books. It's not very quiet if you're looking to study, but an awesome place to meet up with friends. It even has a post office. Every student at HPU has gone to Slane for something.

Campus Strictness: Campus Security – Our campus security is determined to make sure the students of HPU are always safe. As important as this is, many college students wish it didn't come along with the punishment of participating in underage drinking. The security team understands we are just trying to have fun and enjoy our college experience, but if they see something that does not look safe or acceptable to them they will definitely handle it.

Off-Campus Housing: At High Point University you are not allowed to live off campus until you have reached senior status. That means you are either a senior or earned enough credits to equal those of a senior. This does make living options more limited, but at HPU there are so many other places you can live on campus. By living on campus for so many years you really meet a lot people and stay as a close community.

Academics: Awesome Professors – At High Point University every professor is friendly, helpful, and professional. They are always available when you need help and treat you with respect. You are not treated differently because you are a student; rather, many professors act as if you are one of their colleagues they are educating.

Facilities: I truly beleive you will not find a more beautiful campus than High Point University. The architecture is gorgeous, and campus enhancement makes sure the ground and building are perfectly maintained at all times. We have two student centers, both holds tons of activities and many options for dining. There is a concierge service in each center to help with any of your problems. Our main library is beautiful with four levels, each with a different noise level. Hot chocolate and tea is available in the library for late night study exams and the staff there is amazing. On the other side of campus, there is the learning commons. This is beautifully decorated and another great place to work. There are books, computers, printers, and basically everything you would need to study. It is just like a second library only smaller. Campus activites will keep the students enertained. Each semester we have a concert with a major artist, this spring the fray is comming. There is also trips to the ice rink, shopping centers, and big movie premiers for free. The campus movie theatre shows movies each monday and friday, complete with free popcorn, snack, and soda. The arcade is a lot of fun and has anything one could want, including a photo booth where my friends and I get tons of pictures. And it is all free. The campus is beautiful, and the staff will go out of the way to make your college experience an extraordinary one.

Campus Dining: Dining on Campus – High Point University offers several locations to dine at on campus and off-campus. The really listen and cater to the requests of the students for variety, affordability, quality, and nutritious options of our meals. They also provide dining dollars to use per semester if a student runs out of meals so that we are still able to afford campus food. High Point also partners with many community restaurants with promotions & deals to generate business off campus.

Facilities: The facilities at High Point University are excellent because they are readily equipped with the resources and tools we need to take full advantage of them. The free cost of the gym and weight room equipment is a plus. Also hours of operation are convenient depending on your personal preference of when you'd like to use them. Eating places are plentiful and convenience stores, although charging extremely high prices for small quantities, is convenient in that if you don't have access to a store off campus, you can almost get anything you need here.

Health & Safety: Campus Security – High Point specifically has a campus security system and availability so that all students are aware of what occurs on campus and what measures are used to cater to certain situations. HPU is one of the safest college campuses that I have visited and other visitors that do not attend HPU might agree. The campus is well-light at all times of the day and there are several emergency boxes to access if the time calls for it. They have a text message system which corresponds to the email system keeping students in the know of campus security. They also have a unique crime stoppers anonymous where students can report a crime via text without their identity being revealed. I feel extremely safe on campus knowing that security is one call away and any time I need them.

Guys & Girls: Guys at HPU – A lot of the most attractive guys are frat d***heads. The most normal guys either get kicked out, transfer, or aren't in frats. Lambda has the best guys.

Campus Strictness: Security needs to take the strictness down a notch. This campus is getting more boning every year socially.

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.
