What Students Are Saying

4.25 Average Rating
Come to an Open House or schedule a Campus Tour, no other university will out shine High Point University!
Shana from Lexington, NC
Make sure you come to visit the campus. It will blow you away with its beauty and luxury.
Jane from Raleigh, NC
You must visit the campus! You will be amazed from the moment you drive in as you are welcomed by your own personalized parking space which will be followed by flowing fountains, statues, and flags decorating the campus. You may want to come to an Open House where you will hear a presentation given by President Dr. Qubein. He is an amazing leader and visionary.
Lindsay from Raleigh, NC
Apply for the scholarships very early. You can't apply if you are transferring or after your freshman year. Scholarship deadline ends in December so you can deffinitely apply for them even if you haven't gotten accepted yet. Basically, HPU is looking for leaders with school spirit, determination, and good values. You have to be more than just an SAT score or GPA.
Natassia from Southern Pines, NC
Take a tour of the campus, I'm sure when you see that High Point University gate you will automatically fall in love with this campus!
Autumn from Germantown, MD
Visit the campus for sure! It is beautiful, but don't just accept pictures you see on social media, come see it for yourself; you'll love it. I highly recommend applying for scholarships. There's a lot of costs that are part of the college experience. I'd also try to get in touch with other students if you can, even email admissions, try to get connected with the school community. It will help you adjust to the college life!
Frankie from Saint Albans, VT
Don't be afraid to talk to students you see on campus. We are more than happy to talk about our school. Also, take the time to meet some professors and sit in on a class. That's a great way to see what it's like.
Nikki from Gainesville, VA
Come for a campus visit, and if possible, stay with a current student for a night or two. I hosted a couple of high school seniors and they said it definitely helped with their decisions and idea of what life on campus is really like. Don't hesitate to stop a current student when walking around campus, because we will answer any questions you may have, or if you want to chat, that is definitely great as well.
Ashley from Virginia Beach, VA
Apply early and get involved. If you know that you are going to be a double major or in a major that is difficult, apply to do summer experience. i recommend it to get ahead.
Meredith from Clarksburg, MD
Tour the school. At first I thought this school couldn't be right for me but when I toured the school for myself I knew right away that HPU would be home for me.
