After High Point University
- Very Good450
I lived on campus for freshmen and part of sophomore year and it was amazing! I live in the UC (now the Wanek Center) and it was definitely the most convenient dorm to live in. There are 4 places to eat, a convenience store, a movie theater, a study floor, an arcade, and a Jamba Juice (formally Starbucks when I lived there). I decided to move to Village 2 because I wanted my own room. The only problem with this was having to drive to school (or take the trolley) and parking. I won't lie, trying to park on campus kind of sucks some times. The housing process could be improved. I wanted to live in Centennial as a senior with my group of friends, however most of the houses had been homesteaded or people were pulled in, and I personally don't think that's fair that underclassmen get better housing than seniors.

I absolutely love High Point. I think the people here are caring,energetic, and ambitious. If you surround yourself with the people who encourage you and lift you up, you will succeed here. The classes are awesome and there has not been one class where I dread going to. The professors are something that really makes High Point stand out, for they actually care about student success. They will go out of their way to make sure a student understands something. The class sizes are small, but not too small, and it encourages participation. The work load is manageable, but if you want to do well, you have to try hard. The amenities are awesome. I love High Point!

In reading all these reviews sent in by "students", I may as well just read HPU's advertisements. It appears as if admissions is using their time to write fluff reviews. Every other review is extroidinary, awesome, fantastic, great dining, pristine grounds, country club dorms. I guess the director of WOW is proud of his efforts. Five percent African Americans? If Nido could swing it, the number might be zero. He doesn't even want the staff to associate or be seen out on campus. Security is a joke. Sure they're seen, but are powerless to enforce any rules over the rich entitled customers called students. One phone call from moma and everything is forgotten. Students at HPU are NOT prepared to enter the real world. If they think everywhere they go, they will have their butt wiped the way Nido's koolaid drinking minions do while they're in school, no way. Go somewhere else and get a degree worth your time.
