High Point students are definitely a good-looking bunch. The average student is attractive, preppy, and well dressed. Guys are generally seen in Sperrys, button-downs, and khakis. Girls, because of the warm weather, can often be seen in sundresses, shorts, skirts, and cute tops. Popular brands for girls are Lilly Pulitzer, Vineyard Vines, along with some more obscure boutiques. When going to class, students dress to impress. You will very rarely see students walking around in sweatpants and sweatshirts, unless they’re headed to the gym or it's finals week. Typical going-out apparel for girls is basically the same—just tighter and in darker colors.
The ratio at HPU is awesome if you’re a guy. When you’re out at night, you can almost count on there being at least three girls for every one guy. For girls, this makes dating competitive and difficult. Many freshman guys choose not to become involved in a relationship and spend most of their first year exploring their options. While relationships do exist at HPU, many students choose to remain single their freshman year, have casual hookups, or date someone from a different school. Dating someone on campus is more common with upperclassmen.
