Health & Safety: I feel very safe and secure when I am on campus. The gates and security checks allow this and help with any problems concerning security for HPU.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The ability to network within HPU is great. The career internship expos happen quite often on campus and the opportunity to find a job for after school is definitely presented to our students often. All students need to do it take advantage of the opportunities given.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Because of the department i am in I love the professors at this school. The Spanish department at HPU has great professors who care about your success within the program.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I technically live off campus but since I have a car I find it very nice. I like where I live very much and find the building to be great. I love how there is a food option near me and my building is kept very clean. There's never anyone who is too loud and the convenience of getting to campus is nice.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I can't find it in my to take greek life seriously. They have control over our campus and statistically are only 30% of the student body. On our campus non-greeks take a very cynical approach to how they view greek life.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I work in the athletic department at my school so I am a little bias when it comes to our facilities and our teams. When it comes to fan support only mens basketball, mens lacrosse, and mens soccer generate a sizable fan base. Other than that fan support is slim to none. Our teams are pretty good and are getting better each year. One thing that is seriously lacking is the school spirit outside the games. When people attend a game it's pretty spirited but on campus the spirit isn't up to par.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: HPU is a school with great opportunity and people. The friends I have made at this school are friends I'll have forever but I can't help but think that I could've found friends at any school. HPU does have great opportunities but I can't be sure if it's the best place to study my field of study.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I genuinely feel safe at all hours while on campus. I could be walking by myself at 3am and I would feel completely safe.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors at this school truly care about you and your future! They are more than willing to help you in any way that they can. The courses are also incredible but you really have to be studious in order to get the grades that you want. The class sizes are fairly small, which is great because you can engage with your professors more.

Overall Experience: I think that you will most likely get a job when graduating from HPU, but it does depend on your major.

Campus Housing: I love everything about living on campus except for the PRICES!!!!! I am upset only because the Tier 1 options are absolutely terrible and off campus, but Tier 2 is $3,500 EXTRA, and so on and so forth with the rising tiers.

Greek Life: I am non-Greek, but my friends who are in Greek are wonderful. However, there are a lot of bad things that go on behind the scenes, or so I have heard.

Athletics: All I have to say is that we need more student involvement at games. It would make the environment a lot better.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This school is absolutely incredible. I have been given so many opportunities to better myself, and the surrounding community of High Point. However, some of the students here are not the greatest people to be around. But there are definitely amazing students on this campus, too!

2 College Freshman

Diversity: Not much diversity on campus which creates many minorities to form different cliques and isolate themselves. Or they have two different group of friends; one with different races and one with all the same race

Drug Safety: Administration turns a blind eye to a lot of drug use. Had to deal with a roommate first semester who got caught using drugs multiple times and was never kicked out or removed. Student life said that they take a "forgiveness approach" to drug use.

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.
