    Campus activities are abundant. CAT- the campus activities team offers many on campus and off campus activities for free. Of course you also have the many amenities, such as pools, arcade, theater with new movies and free popcorn and the beautiful grassy campus. The city of High Point doesn't offer much but there are some hidden gems and Greensboro and it's many restaurants, concerts, and bars is nearby.

    High Point is a small town and not much surrounds the school, so HPU has created their own stress-free zone on campus. They have a game (arcade) room with pretty much everything from pool tables to ping pong, foosball, hoops, fruit ninja, pacman, and even karaoke. They also have their own theatre that shows movies before they are released to video or netflix. All comes at no extra charge for their students.

    There are a lot of choices for fun on and off campus that are all included in your tuition as a student. There are 3 pools, a free movie theater and arcade, campus activities team (which coordinates taking students to events like the circus, ice skating, Harlem globe trotters, etc.). There is also a gym and recreational area in the student center that student can go to during their free time where you can take work out classes, use the equipment, rent bikes, form intermural teams, etc. all for free!

    There's tons to do around campus. There are numerous clubs and organizations in which to get involved. In addition, there's church, sporting events, a movie theater, an arcade, and pools right on campus! There's plenty to see and do here. And don't forget to show your Panther pride when attending games! Sport that HPU purple!!

    Off campus. Parties on campus get broken up by midnight and you are fined for any underage drinking or any noise.

    The surrounding areas of HPU include High Point, Jamestown, Greensboro, and Winston Salem. The optimal location of the school provides students with shopping, adventure, theatrical, and laid-back entertainment venues to seek out at any time. Growing up in an area close to HPU, the options are endless of activities to do for fun.

    While the town of HIgh Point may not have much to offer, the campus activities team does so much for its students and offers it for free. They even take students on bus trips to amusement parks and other attractions.

    HPU has a Campus Activities Team, CAT for short, that organizes and plans events for the university. CAT will do events such as bingo nights, karaoke nights, or laser tag on campus and they even do events off campus (with transportation provided) such as bowling, ice skating, hockey games, and everyone's favorite - The Dixie Classic Fair! Thats only to list a few of the many events that students can do. Another exciting thing that the university does is the concerts, one per semester. I'm a junior so I have been to five concerts thus far: B.O.B, The Fray, Gym Class Heroes, Calvin Harris, and J. Cole. Even on campus, you have the movie theater and the arcade to have some fun in.

    From the Ropes Course to Greek Life, High Point has it all! There are thousands of activities to do and they all have one concept in mind: meeting new people! These activities help engage the students to build strong interpersonal skills and to maintain valuable, lifetime friendships.
