What Students Are Saying

4.25 Average Rating
High Point is a very clean, organized, and up-and-coming school in North Carolina. It is a four-year university, although it is working on expanding currently and creating new masters degree programs as well. It has a generally friendly atmosphere and a lot of southern hospitality, even though most students are from the north.
Caitlin from Daleville, VA
High Point University has made me feel welcome, while also inspiring me to try new things. The extraordinary environment has given me the opportunity to play for their women's soccer team and made me a part of the school of education. This university cares for its students like no other college I have seen.
