5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We have good health and safety

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The doctors and security officers on campus are amazing and super nice. Everyone is friendly and always wave and say hi when you come to campus. During the snow days security officers made sure that students were able to move their cars if they needed to leave campus. I saw several officers driving around campus and they would shovel snow for students and staff when they were having trouble.

My roommate got really sick in the fall and I took her to student health. Everyone was really friendly and the doctor on campus made sure she got the treatment she needed. My roommate actually had to go home for a while so I wouldn't get sick and student health and the RA checked up on her to make sure she was feeling better and caught up on her school work. I found out when she got back that they even sent her a blanket while she was home so she didn't miss HPU too much.

Health & Safety: The presence of security and other safety measures on campus is really a reassurance when walking around. The campus is gated, which adds protection and security that is nice to have. Campus police can be seen driving around at nearly all hours and security is readily available at all times.

For a college campus, High Point is a pretty safe one. Rarely is there ever a major disturbance on campus. High Point security is a great group of people who have the students' best interests at heart. They generally don’t want to get you in trouble and are a very friendly group. Security will help you whenever you need it, and they can always be seen walking, biking, Segway-ing, or driving around campus. A great feature about the campus is the fact that it’s gated. With a completely fenced-in campus and welcome centers at every entrance, it is very reassuring to students to know that random people can’t just come onto campus whenever they feel like it. Another great feature is that once night falls, the lights come on! There are practically no dark spots, which is great if you have to walk across campus late at night. It’s kind of like daytime all night, and students are always comfortable walking around at night by themselves.

Student Health Services at High Point is pretty good. The running joke among students is that you can go in to the infirmary and no matter what your ailment, they’ll give everyone the same medication. Another bummer about the health center is that it’s not open 24 hours, which most students find inconvenient and weird for a college campus.
