3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I came to this school because it seemed amazing and it was at first. This school IS Disney World in a nut shell. My problem was when it came to the weekends I didn't have much to do. I didn't have my car on campus so I couldn't really go off campus. And even when I went off campus there wasn't much to do. I planned on transferring last semester but I joined a Sorority. I then started to think about transferring again and I am going to because the school doesn't feel like a college to me.

Overall Experience: Loved my time at HPU! It's like a country club and you don't appreciate how accessible the teachers, administration, and resources are until you leave. Additionally, the school really focuses on educating you as a whole person and not just a student. Hence why the student body is full of well-rounded and friendly people.

Overall Experience: I do not like the school. I think it is overpriced, not enough student diversity, the academics are not challenging, the campus is very small and it is in a very bad location that makes it difficult to go anywhere if you do not have a vehicle. The positives are that the campus is beautiful and the dorms are larger and nicer than most schools and HPU has multiple pools.

Overall Experience: Attending High Point University has turned out to be an incredible journey. Although it is often mistaken by an over-the-top college it is giving me the an extraordinary education surrounded by great people and amazing amenities. The school's policy is hard work and determination. There is an air of excellence roaming the streets of this campus and its contagious.

Administration: There are a couple things that security over reacts to. For example they don't allow uber's on campus which is obnoxious. There are other things that security really needs to tone down but for the most part they do a good job of making sure everyone is safe.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: High Point is not the greatest or safest of towns so most people chose to live within the gates of campus.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Its alright. Nothing too crazy but for the size that our school is it is decent.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Everything is about 15 minutes away so if you have a way to get there its nice but if you don't have a car its pretty impossible.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received a Presidential Scholarship which was great but it was not enough. I tried to go into the financial aid office on many occasions and spoke to multiple different people and it was horrible. They were all disrespectful, rude, and made it seem like I was a bother to them just by being in their presence. I experienced this twice by myself and then when my dad came to visit he experienced it as well.

Campus Food: Minus the caf everything is way better than any other college I've seen. The only issue I have is sometimes I find the food to not be very filling at places like Farmers Market and the Bakery.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I have lived in the University Center and I felt like I was living in a hotel. Of every single college I have seen, nothing is even comparable to the dorms at High Point!

Administration: The administration at the school upholds all of its standards and expectations for students as promised. They are fair in their decisions, but their main priority is to keep the campus safe, which they do very well.

Scholarships: I was part of the Presidential Scholarship program at High Point University, and while I did get the financial aid that I needed in order to attend the school, the program was really stressful for me and was a hassle. We had a large scholarship dinner and an interview process, all of this spread over two days, and the whole weekend was business professional. The whole thing was really intimidating, but it was the only reason I was able to afford the school, so I'm thankful for it.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Overall, the food at High Point is great. There are several places to eat at that offer different types of food. The cafe is good if you're in a hurry or low on magic meals, but there's also the Farmer's Market if you want something really healthy.

Administration: The leniency allows the students here to make their own decisions. They don't always make the right decisions, but they have the freedom that they need to learn and grow.

Scholarships: Financial aid is given to so many students that you rarely receive as much as you need, but it's nice to have some help.

Campus Food: Students from other schools that I bring to HPU campus are jealous are the vast options and the quality of the food, with the exception of the food offered at the caf which is ordinary.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Overall, the HPU experience is nothing less than “extraordinary." Most students are happy to be attending such a fantastic school and are actually sad to be going home at breaks. The campus has such a welcoming atmosphere that students feel that they are at home no matter how far they have to travel to get there. Students become so involved with friends, clubs, sports, and organizations on campus that leaving all of that to go home is sad for a lot of students. When it comes to preparing students for the future, High Point gives them every opportunity, and all they have to do is take it. High Point produces well-rounded students who are prepared to enter graduate school or the job market as soon as they graduate. With a focus on a real world experience in the University's education, students leave HPU with the competence to jump into the workforce. Through internships and hands-on classroom work, students can feel confident they have the skills to succeed.

High Point is different from so many other schools because it is a small school with large-school facilities. The University has the resources of big schools, but the friendly and caring atmosphere and personal attention of a smaller institution. Professors know students by name and take an interest with what they are doing in and out of the classroom. High Point values a student's whole education, not what is just limited to the classroom. The professors and administration work on molding students not just academically, but also instilling in them a sense of generosity, self-awareness, and kindness toward their environment and fellow man.
