Campus Strictness: I believe there is a good balance of rules and regulations at HPU that does not interfere with the social lives of students.

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

Campus Strictness: HPU has a "out of sight, out of mind" view by many RA's when it comes to some things, but security is always willing to step up and help. When rules are enforced, they seem to be effective (noise violations, parking, etc.).

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: There are definitely times when it seems that the campus could potentially be a bit more strict about things such as noise in the dorms or drinking, but overall people are responsible and respectful to others.

It is true that High Point can be a little over-the-top when it comes to campus strictness. Students understand that they have an image to uphold and want to represent their school as best they possibly can. However, this understanding goes out the window when it comes to nightlife. Parties get broken up early, and it is very frustrating to kids who just want to go out and have a good time. Because of how strict it's gotten, most frat parties don’t even provide alcohol anymore—which is just not normal for a college party. Since HPU has expanded so rapidly in the past few years, security and the administration have started to crack down on nightlife. There are heavy fines if you get caught drinking or smoking on campus. If you happen to break something in your room or somewhere else on campus, expect a massive fine, as well.

One good thing that the campus is strict about is class attendance. Your professors will check up on you if you miss class, and usually if you miss more than three, you can be dropped from the course. While some students may find this annoying, it is in the students' best interests, and it’s reassuring to know that your professors genuinely care about you and your education.

Facts & Statistics

Students Are Most Likely to Get Caught...
  • Drinking
  • Having alcohol paraphernalia left out in your room during breaks
  • Making too much noise
  • Smoking
Visitation Policies
Having friends visit HPU is super easy. They can just stay in your room, and no one will ask any questions-although you do have to register him or her online through MyStuff. An overnight guest is only allowed to stay two consecutive nights. Guests will have to register their car with security if they drive on campus, but that's an easy thing to do at the security office. Also, when it comes to food, the easiest thing to do is to conserve your own meals earlier in the week so they can use them. If you don't feel like doing this, then using dining dollars or your general account is also an option.
Did You Know?
HPU is a keg-less campus. Kegs are not allowed to be at parties, and anyone who has one faces heavy fines and perhaps a loss of social privileges for fraternities.
