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.
