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.

Campus Housing: The school offers hotel-like dorm rooms that have everything from a microwave to a fridge. For those that choose not to spend the extra money on that, the regular dorms are great for meeting other people, for studying, and for keeping your room the temperature you like it.

Party Scene: The parties are okay. I have only been to one but everyone says they are pretty cool and there is at least one every weekend.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food is good in my opinion. The cafe has a variety of foods to eat, it's not the same thing everyday or one particular food. Subway and Chick Fil A is good and the Grille is really good. It's a lot of options in my opinion even healthy ones.

Greek Life: I like our greek life, I just wish they had more greek life options.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The facilities are great for athletics, I love them and they have everything we need.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing options themselves are really great, but it can be hard to get them, some of them are very high in price, and sometimes parking can be bad. I think the prices should be lowered a little especially since off campus housing houses most upperclassmen.

Administration: I like the campus administration, they do a good job at keeping us safe.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I wish they offered more scholarships for students and made it easier for students to get financial aid. They should be sending out emails or a form of notification once a month about scholarships we can apply for.

Administration: When it comes to rule breaking such as fast driving, jumping in the fountains, and noise complaints during exams, the school is pretty strict about fines and punishment. Alcohol and drug use, not so much.

Off-Campus Housing: I only know one person who lives off campus, but the school helped him find a place and the school provides a shuttle to pick up as well.

Local Area: High Point is not the safest area and some of the locals do not particularly care for the university as we seem to be taking over the city.

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.
