Attend Summer Experience before your freshman year, you'll earn credit hours, meet other freshman and learn your way around. Be sure you go to class. Classes are small and you will be missed.

    High Point University is definitely an extraordinary university. So far, all of my professors have really worked with me to help me learn and do well. The campus is gorgeous and has everything you need or want.

    This University has an amazing campus. The faculty and staff really care about the success of the students. All of the amenities at the school, help make adjusting to college life away from home so much easier.

  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    I live down the street from this school and I actually applied and was accepted this past year. I got only $10k in scholarships, which, if you look at the overall cost, barely makes a dent in the burden of debt you'll have to accrue if you choose to go here. I know a lot of people who go to this school and they have very mixed reviews: alumni say it doesn't prepare them for the real world, current students say it's got everything they could want in a university, and outsiders write article after article it seems on both the gentrification and the 'Disney-land' aesthetics of the campus.

    High Point is a fantastic school. The education and opportunities that we receive are top notch. The environment set by our campus and faculty sets HPU apart from the rest.

    High Point University has a variety of fields to study, a variety of clubs/academics to join. It has many opportunities to explore; study abroad, volunteer work, off campus activities, etc. This school is definitely one for those who want to accept every challenge thrown at them and do extraordinary things.

    In short, High Point University is perfect. You get everything you could ask for- perfect campus, classes, dorms, and activities. Of all my college visits and choices, HPU has stood out the most just because of the way they connect with students.

    I graduated from HPU in 3 years! Yes, that is unheard of because most college advisors screw you over for requirements and lack of knowledge. Classes are small and advisee-advisor ratio is also small so you are always taken care of because they have the time.

    It's a beautiful campus, but beauty cannot make up for the sub-par education, especially in the realm of sciences. If you are into liberal arts, then HPU may be for you. If not, I suggest looking elsewhere.
