    Again: no millennial I know comes right out of college to a 5-star steakhouse once a week. So, why expose them to that in college? Study what matters.

    There are many different dining options. We have Starbucks, Jamba Juice, Chick-Fil-A, Subway, the Café, the Bakery, the Grille, the Diner, and the Point which is like a sports bar. There's a plethora of dining/food options. We have convenient stores, and Domino's delivers! You'll never go hungry here.

    There are tons of options. They have the upscale restaurant at the Wanek center. A panera type bakery place, Chick-fil-A, Starbucks, subway, and a ton of other places.

    The food here has a good variety and the employees love their jobs serving the students. Also, we have a steakhouse, which is available for each student once a week as part of the meal plan.

    The food at High Point University is one thing I don't think I can really complain about. They have a wide array of options that fits everyone's palate. The foods range from vegetarian to a sports bar-like restaurant. There are some food places that are familiar, and some that are unique to the university. Either way, whether or not you want to try something new, you have a number of options. Sometimes, it cane get annoying having to pick from those options every day, but it is more than can be said for most colleges.

    A huge part of our campus. SO much fun. Everyone gets along. Tons of Panhellenic love to go around.

    Greek life isn't like the movies on this campus. Most of the sororities and fraternities are friendly and welcoming. However, you are not allowed to rush until second semester of your freshman year--this allows you to look into Greek life and make sure it's something you want to do. Not everyone gets into their top picks, but I think everyone gets into Greek life.

    The greek life rocks- at least one party every weekend. Most of the people are part of the greek life. The downside is that there's so many more girls than guys at HPU, so a lot more sororities than frats.

    There are many top sororities and fraternities at HPU such as Kappa Delta, Kappa Sigma, Alpha Gamma Delta, Beta Theta Pi, and so many more. The Greeks are involved in a lot on campus from philanthropy to intermural sports to leadership positions in clubs and classrooms. There are also some service sororities and fraternities on campus that are nonpanhellenic.

    Greek Life makes up a pretty significant percentage of campus life, around 40% of students are involved in a fraternity or sorority. If you want lifelong friends and to make a difference in the community with service projects, I suggest you check it out. Plus the housing in the village is excellent!

    Big - they have been kicking off almost all fraternities recently replacing them with start up frats that are dry and only have about 10 people in them.

    As freshman, a student at High Point University cannot rush until the spring semester of their freshman year. This gives students time to adjust and check out the sororities and fraternities at HPU. Greek Life is a great option to look into if a student is interested.

    I am not involved with greek life, but I would say about one forth to a third of students are involved with it. What is nice is rush is differed so you don't rush until spring semester, allowing new students to get accustomed to college life before they rush a sorority and over commit themselves.
