At High Point University, part of the inspiring environment takes place outside of the classroom. In a typical year, two-third of the entering freshmen come from states other than North Carolina; one-third, from move than 500 miles away. The university works to plan a calendar jam-packed with both educational and entertaining opportunities. All of these activities are complimentary to our students.
