4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The girls at this school are very nice and approachable

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Campus is like no other college. Literally there is not a speck of dirt out of place. Everything you could ask for is at your finger tips. Food on campus is available till 2AM and on top of that, there is a free 5 star steak house to treat yourself to once a week. the dorms are incredibly nice. The library is 24/7. Academics are incredible, for example the business school is replicated from Harvard's business school with no lecturing but rather round table discussion. The kids here are all nice and inviting, but they do seem stuck up and full of them selves, mainly because most all of them are good looking, rich, and drive bentleys. But if you try to fit in, it truly is the place for you. Parties are crazy, especially in the Greek Village. Even if you don't plan on coming here, you at least need to come see this place. Its a resort rather than a college. All that is missing is a waterpark. the tuition is really worth the money here at High Point

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The people are generally good people when you find those that you form your relationships with.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Guys here are cool, most of them are laid back and preppy. Girls are kind of an issue, most of them are snobby and want you to know how rich they are. Mostly everyone here comes from money, and most people show it. Girls wear Lilly Pulitzer a lot. Guys wear khakis, pastels, sperry's and of course Vineyard Vines

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.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

High Point students are definitely a good-looking bunch. The average student is attractive, preppy, and well dressed. Guys are generally seen in Sperrys, button-downs, and khakis. Girls, because of the warm weather, can often be seen in sundresses, shorts, skirts, and cute tops. Popular brands for girls are Lilly Pulitzer, Vineyard Vines, along with some more obscure boutiques. When going to class, students dress to impress. You will very rarely see students walking around in sweatpants and sweatshirts, unless they’re headed to the gym or it's finals week. Typical going-out apparel for girls is basically the same—just tighter and in darker colors.

The ratio at HPU is awesome if you’re a guy. When you’re out at night, you can almost count on there being at least three girls for every one guy. For girls, this makes dating competitive and difficult. Many freshman guys choose not to become involved in a relationship and spend most of their first year exploring their options. While relationships do exist at HPU, many students choose to remain single their freshman year, have casual hookups, or date someone from a different school. Dating someone on campus is more common with upperclassmen.

Social Scene
First-semester students are very outgoing and generally excited to meet new people and explore different party scenes. Mostly everyone goes to the frats on the weekends and will party-hop from one house to another. There are also parties in the apartments, usually run by the different frats that live there, and in the dorms and off-campus housing (The Village, Terrace apartments, and townhomes). The second semester is a bit more divided because of the influence of Greek life. There are a lot more closed parties second semester, but they generally open up around 12 a.m. People begin partying on Wednesday night either by going to bars or clubs in the area or in an apartment somewhere on campus.
Hookups or Relationships?
Relationships at High Point span the spectrum. There are students who are blissfully single and are only looking for random hookups, and there are also freshmen who are engaged to be married. The most common relationships on campus are hookups and relationships with people from different schools. While there are couples on campus, many students choose to date from home and/or nearby schools. Girls and guys are definitely open to relationships, but they aren't in any hurry to settle down and get serious unless they know they've found someone special.
Dress Code
High Point is definitely a school with an attractive and presentable student body. There are people who dress very preppy, which is the majority of the campus, in Lilly Pulitzer, Vineyard Vines, and Ralph Lauren, to name a few brands. Most of the guys wear pastel shirts and shorts with Sperrys, while girls wear sundresses and generally look nice 99 percent of the time. There is the small percentage of people who wear sweats to class, and while this is acceptable, at least for morning classes, it's not common. When going out, most girls wear jeans and a nighttime top or dress with heels or cute flats/sandals. Guys wear button-downs and polos with shorts/jeans and Sperrys/sneakers.
