5 College Senior

Campus Dining: The food on campus is excellent. The variety is very good. We even have a steakhouse on campus that is amazing and is part of our dining plan. You will not go hungry and is much like "Mama's cooking".

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Love my school and the food available. So many options!

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 Freshman

Campus Dining: There are tons of options!!

4 College Senior

Campus Dining: All the food is pretty great although sometimes you gotta go off campus because you get tired of it. That's with all schools though.

Unlike a lot of other colleges, High Point’s food is both varied and delicious! There are so many different places to eat on campus that students rarely get bored. Most students agree that the bakery, "The Grille," and the steakhouse are the best places at which to eat and make use of these options the most. Besides these favorites, there are plenty of other places to choose from on campus. The only problem with the food on campus is that students love eating it maybe a little too much. The Freshman 15 is a constant worry for a lot of students, and sometimes it’s hard just to have a salad when there are so many good options from which to choose. This isn’t to say that HPU’s student body is overweight, since most students choose to eat whatever they want and just work it off at the gym. 

The variety of food on campus is amazing. Whether you want a healthy option like a salad, vegetarian options, or hot wings to munch on, HPU caters to everyone’s taste. The campus does a great job of providing every student with eating options, but when you get sick of eating on campus, there are plenty of other options in downtown High Point. The most popular off-campus eateries are Cook-Out, McDonald's, La Hacienda, and Giannos. So if you ever get bored of eating on campus (and have a car), there are these popular spots (and many more!) from which to choose.

Did You Know?
  • Birthdays at HPU are very special! On their birthday, students get a free Starbucks card for a free Starbucks drink!
  • To make reservations at the 1924 Prime steakhouse, you have to do it a week in advance from your reservation time. Also, the reservations fill up quickly, so it's best to do it at midnight the week before. Reservations can be up to six people, and you're required to dress nicely when dining (e.g., dresses or nice pants/skirts for girls; nice pants, button-downs, and ties for guys).
