5 College Freshman

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.

Transportation: Not having a car on campus really is not a big deal at all, and though it is an added bonus to be able to venture off campus, the shuttles and trolleys run at regular intervals. The scheduled buses and shuttles to and from airports around breaks are really fantastic, as they are "free" for students.

Weather: Though there have been some days with snow, ice, and rain, the weather is really a mood changer for students on campus and everyone is truly excited and up beat.

Campus Housing: I think that the housing options are really wonderful. There are plenty of different choices, though these definitely come with the added cost. The dorm options for freshmen are very available, and though the housing process can be stressful, there are plenty of options to accommodate everyone.

Off-Campus Dining: There is a variety of food options off campus though they tend to be slightly synonymous with one another.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I find the academics to be quite challenging, though I know there are definitely courses in which I have not be challenged thus far. The academics and overall learning environment is not quite as intellectual as some other schools.

Diversity: The diversity present on campus is not quite as high as I was hoping for, though there is a good deal of diversity in specific topics.

Local Area: The city of High Point is known as the Furniture Capital of the World, so all of the buildings downtown are just furniture galleries. some areas of high point are pretty sketchy and there isn't much nightlife or great jobs. Greensboro and Winston Salem would be the best places to go but they are within a 30 minute drive.

Athletics: We have great facilities and many NCAA, Club, and Intramural sports. The downside is that we don't have a football team. Our basketball team is great and gaining national recognition so the games are fun to go to. Students can join the Panthers den which is the cheering sections for sporting events.

Transportation: There are shuttles that will take you to different parts of campus for free all throughout the night. The drivers are nice and usually prompt

Diversity: The campus is mostly Caucasian, but as the school is gaining popularity it is gaining diversity. I think that the school is working to make the school more culturally diverse. High Point is pretty expensive so most people who attend either come from wealthy families or have great scholarships.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: As long as you aren't causing a scene then security doesn't care. It also depends on who your RA is. Some won't care if you have alcohol or are making noise while some are more strict.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: You can often find parties in the greek village, but there isn't much off campus. Not many bars or clubs close, so you would have to take a trip to Greensboro or Winton Salem

4 College Sophomore

Weather: I love the warm weather in the fall and spring. The winters can be pretty cold and sometimes we get snow. The good thing about snow is that when even a tiny bit of snow falls campus pretty much shuts down.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Immediately outside of campus is not the best area, but there are some decent restaurants for a quick bite. If you travel about 15 minutes away there are some nicer restaurants and shopping areas. There are a lot of restaurants that are passport partners where you can pay with your student passport and sometimes get discounts.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The school seems to try to keep people on campus rather than let them live off campus. We have to live in campus housing until we are seniors, which can be expensive.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are always kept clean and facilities are very nice. Campus is somewhat small so you are never too far from your classes. There are very nice dorms that can be lived in, but it raises the price. As you move up by year the price of housing sometimes increases. I do not like how we have to live on campus until we are seniors. I would like to move off campus to save money but I need more credits.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I love being in the Communications program. The professors often have real world experience and really make an attempts to ensure everybody's success. With this program there are a lot of long term projects, but if you budget your time efficiently then the workload is not too overbearing. There are organizations on campus that will assist you in getting internships and jobs in your desired field.

Majors: The Strategic Communications program is awesome and I have loved all of my professors. I would definitely choose this major again. My plan is to have a career in advertising and graphic design which fits perfectly with my Graphic Design Minor. The only concern I have about finding a job is how competitive the industry is, but I am confident that i will be able to find a job.

Diversity: Diversity is okay. It could be better but the school cost a lot so there is a slim chance that it wont be as diverse as other colleges

Technology: We have free printing in all of the dorms and everyone has there own computer but if a computer is needed the library's have them

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I think it is good if you want to join because you have people looking out for you. But if you do not want to join it is okay too because your going to have friends if you want them

3 College Freshman

Local Area: I havent really been off campus to know about what goes on outside of campus

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.
