Overall Experience: I'm a transfer student so I feel that I have an excellent insight to the true nature of this school. This campus generates so much negative energy. Students are ALWAYS complaining, getting into fights, discriminating against others, gossiping, etc. It's cause my generally positive attitude to be drained. HPU has caused me to lose a lot of hope in today's society. I transferred as a junior and before this fall 2015 is even half way over, I've decided to transfer back. This place is highly deceitful. It may look great and have great amenities, but that's all it has. If you want something more than a country club experience, enroll elsewhere. I hate to be so harsh, but I'm watching out for others as it was an expensive move.

Overall Experience: The science department has failed me. I'm highly disappointed in what this school does to deceive others. I'm sure excellent connections can be made --as most students have incredibly successful parents. But sometimes, that's not enough. I feel ill-prepared and which I didn't waste my time at such a corrupt institution. Can't wait to transfer back to my old school.

Diversity: There was a scandal with voter suppression that was (of course) covered up by the university. A professor who was discussing racism told the class how security is told to be stricter and check black people more than the white people and to not allow blacks through the gates as easily. There are so many racist, sexist and homophobic attitudes floating about campus. I can't wait to transfer back home where I feel that every human is respected.

Campus Food: Other than the Steakhouse, and if we're not talking aesthetics, it's just like any other school.

1 College Junior

Guys & Girls: They're all from Jersey, Boston and Long Island so therefore have the rudest personalities in the nation (at least where I'm from, that's the stereotype of their region) If you don't have money, you're looked down upon. Some even discriminate against new money(!) Even though the students here are BEAUTIFUL, there is not much beyond the looks. Many girls have fake boobs, nose jobs and carry designer purses as backpacks ..what's your priority there, cause it certainly isn't your books or notes. I've even heard sorority girls make fun of one of their sisters when she was wore a backpack to class. Yeah, it's that ridiculous. Unless you are flawless and wealthy, have fun fitting in.

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.
