Just Around the Corner

04.3.2013
This time last year I was in your shoes. I had paid my deposit, picked my classes at Early Registration in March, and interacted with many of my soon to be future classmates and friends. I couldn’t wait to be at HPU, which was clear to my family and friends because it was all I […]

A Beautiful Day To Get Involved

03.14.2013
The weather is beginning to change and it’s a beautiful day here at HPU! Something that isn’t changing on campus is the involvement and leadership opportunities available to students.   One of the first things that attracted me to High Point University was the fact that it was an active university, on campus and in […]

I cannot believe my freshman year of college is coming to an end, already. It’s just about time for Spring Break here at High Point University, which means midterms are coming to a close. Are you nervous about exams in college? Don’t be, because at High Point University, the professors genuinely care about their students, […]

Experience is Key

02.28.2013
Sometimes people ask me how it is being a biology major and having “all of those science courses.” Honestly, the thing that I enjoy most about my chemistry and biology classes is putting the things I’ve learned into practice and learning about how others are doing the same. Science classes aren’t just sitting around and […]

Presidential Scholarship Weekend

02.21.2013
Presidential Scholarship Weekend is an exciting time at High Point University! I remember being super excited to get back on the beautiful HPU campus but I was also a little nervous about the interview portion of the weekend. My guess is your emotions are pretty similar. I’m here to tell you, be confident and really […]

HPU Takes on the Harlem Shake!

02.15.2013
As the sun shined and weather rose up to the high sixties, I hatched the idea to make a “Harlem Shake” video for High Point. Little did I know that with such little planning and advanced notice, High Point’s students and faculty would rally around to make the event a total success. The “Harlem Shake” […]

I’m thankful for…

11.20.2012
Can you believe Thanksgiving is only a few days away? I certainly can’t.  I have definitely had more than enough time to reflect on the things I am thankful for, and I couldn’t be more excited to head back home to New York and spend Thanksgiving at home, with my family. However, we, the students […]

From the Darkness Comes Light

11.14.2012
Luckily, it has been a beautiful couple of weeks here at High Point but it goes without saying that the destruction that Sandy left behind still hangs heavy on the hearts of High Point’s students. With so many of us hailing from the North, like me, countless people have been affected in some way by […]

The Right Choice

10.23.2012
As we return from fall break, I realized that in just 8 short weeks High Point University has become my home. While I was home, almost everyone asked me the same question. “Are you enjoying college?” I didn’t even have to think twice before an emphatic “Yes!” flew out of my mouth.   Thinking back […]

Have you heard?

10.18.2012
Can you all believe that I’ve been part of the High Point University family for three months already? I certainly can’t. Midterms are already over! Yeah, I can’t believe it either. Oh well, I truly couldn’t be happier to call High Point University “home” for the next four years.   Have ya’ll (too southern?) heard […]

FALL IS HERE!

10.10.2012
…and I kind of LOVE it! Fall is one of my favorite seasons. Chilly weather, changing leaves, hot chocolate, warm clothes, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and bonfires (just to name a few things) are definitely a nice break from the sweltering heat of summer. Also, with fall comes another one of my favorite things…FALL BREAK! I can’t […]

The American Dream

09.18.2012
Two weeks ago I had the extreme pleasure of attending the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC. About two-dozen students including myself were busy filming “The American Dream Project,” a reality show that analyzes whether or not the stereotypical ‘American Dream’ is still alive and how it impacts average citizens in today’s society. I was ecstatic […]

Painting the Town Red. Well, Purple.

04.3.2012
You know those times when somebody says, “What did you do this weekend?” and you’re like, “…nothing”? This was not one of those weekends. I spent my weekend in Charleston, SC with the High Point University Honors Program. It was incredible! We left on Friday afternoon, and got to Charleston around 5:00. We had the […]

I see you riding Downtown with the girl I love And I’m like… haiku………. Welcome back HPU! Okay, so I have this self-diagnosed problem of nostalgia—so I like to think about the past… a lot.

A Roof Over Your Head

02.22.2012
I’m dedicating this blog to all of you upcoming freshmen that are having panic attacks about housing. Let’s get one thing straight:   There is not a single bad place to live at HPU.   It’s the honest truth. Our oldest dorms would be a dream-come-true to students at many other colleges.   I remember […]

Keep Calm, Stay Warm, Go Greek!

02.14.2012
Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. I’m sure that’s what all the girls in sororities say as they go to formals, chapter meetings, and other Greek events. Rush wasn’t too long ago, but you can’t tell because everyone’s borrowing letters, throwing up signs with their hands, using bags, and really just taking whatever they can get their hands on that […]

你好! (Sound it out.)

For the majority of you that don’t actually speak or understand Chinese, that means “hello” in Mandarin.  You’re probably wondering whether or not I actually speak the language myself, and I am here to tell you that yes, I do. I started taking Chinese last semester, here at High Point University, and I can honestly […]

*Cough Cough*

01.30.2012
I think that we can all agree that getting sick is no fun at all. (DUH, silly statement I know.) In high school you can just have your parents call in and get you excused for the day but, sadly, it doesn’t work that way in college. There are essentially no excused absences. You miss […]
