Drug Safety: I would say I've heard of very few case of any drug related accidents on campus.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: HPU is one of the only gated communities on campus and 24/7 security makes me feel as though I'm always protected. Night time isn't really a problem because at night the campus is as bright as day.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: HPU is like a dream come true. At HPU I feel as if I'm able to achieve anything I set my mind to, as long as I believe in myself, and ask. HPU is dedicated to making me feel at home and welcome while I take my courses. HPU does its best to accommodate me and my fellow students into the places we need to be to excell.

Campus Housing: The dorms on campus are like those of a dream. When you step into your dorm you feel as though you're in a high end hotel. From the cleaning that takes place every day to the constant updating of furniture and amenities over the summer, HPU guarantees that student won't be disappointed with their rooms.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Personally I'm not a part of the Greek Life on campus, but the Greeks have a lot invested into community service and helping people on campus. During rush in the Spring, some people become so busy that their entire life gets rearranged, but other than that Greeks are normally really flexible in their time, and almost everyone on campus is friends with at least someone.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: While HPU doesn't have a football team, we do have a wide variety of sports and other athletic equipment. From our state of the art gym for students (located in each residential area), to the high quality fields, HPU caters to every athletic need, including a ropes course and an ice skating rink for less traditional people.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My school has a way of treating each student like individual successes. At High Point University, we are encouraged to strive to our greatest potential, and they refuse to let you fall behind. Here at HPU, even outside of classrooms everyone is here to help you, from the ladies in the dining areas to the campus enhancement team, everyone here makes you feel as if you have something to offer the world and that's just what makes this place feel like a family.

Overall Experience: I love High Point so much. I would choose this school all over again if I could.

Party Scene: Nightlife is good at High Point. People usually go out Thursdays to bars around town. Most people are over twenty one when they go to bars. There is a club called Limelight 20 minutes away that people like to go to on Thursday nights, too. Parties on campus are fun and go on every single weekend.

Academics: Our academics are amazing. The professors stand out when compared to other collages. They actually care about your success and will go above and beyond to help students learn. The course load is manageable. The study areas are beautiful and relaxing. A lot of people go to the Learning Commons or Smith Library, which are open 24 hours.

Diversity: There is not a lot of diversity on campus. The average student is white, upper-middle class, christian, and straight. When it comes to diversity, the student body is very accepting and welcoming. Nobody is ostracized because of race, economic background, political beliefs, religion, or sexual orientation.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The drug scene, like any school, is there IF you look for it. I have not looked for any drugs, so I have not come across any. Yes, there are drugs here, but there is absolutely no pressure from anyone to partake in them. If you surround yourself with people who are into drugs, then you will be around it more. Due to our awesome security, there are a lot of charges with drugs because High Point is strict about it. There needs to be a better punishment for drugs, because right now it is only fines.

Health & Safety: The campus security is absolutely amazing. I have never felt unsafe on campus. They are constantly all around campus. They really do care about the students.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: 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!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: We have a wonderful and new Student Success building, which concentrates on exactly that, success! There are career/ internship centers that will help guide and find future internships and careers. There are centers that will help you build a resume and cover letter. The academic clubs provide great resources and connections.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great. All the dorms are really fantastic and go above and beyond the average dorm experience. The best options for freshmen are the tier 2 housing, for there are better amenities. Depending on which building, you can have your own room, full size bed, granite counter tops, full size kitchen, and/or private bathroom.Tier 1 housing is a little bit cheaper and doesn't have everything that tier 2 has, but still has great amenities. Freshmen get the best housing options. All the hosing atmospheres are different and change year-to-year. Millis is usually the party dorm, but there are people there who do not go out, too.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Our Greek life has a pretty big impact on campus. They are constantly promoting service events that the whole campus is invited to and encouraged to participate in. They are well respected by everyone on campus. Greeks do not have a bad reputation at all. They are usually very involved on campus and in their school work. Greek parties are pretty fun and people enjoy going to them. Greek housing is available!

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Our varsity sports are pretty popular and people enjoy going to the games. Our basketball, soccer, and lacrosse team are probably the most popular teams around campus. People absolutely love to participate in intramural and club sports.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Their is 24/7 security here on campus and their are several resources to turn to in case of an emergency. The university is a gated community and so nobody that is not a student cannot come on campus without being checked in by a security officer at the gate. The only thing that I worry about is that students charged with rape are still walking around on campus. I personally feel that if someone is charged with something like that, they should not be allowed here on campus especially if it is gated because that means that we are gated in a space with bad people.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most of all my classes I really enjoy. The professors make you feel welcome and they are here to help us be successful. We are welcome to ask questions any time and they are extremely good at responding back within 24 hours. The main goal is for us the students to excel.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I am satisfied with the housing that I was placed in. I love my room and the hall that I am on! The housing is just how I pictured my freshman college experience to be dorm wise.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not a part of Greek life, but I know that they do great things and they are like a community within a community.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The students support their university in any way possible!

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.
