02.11.2010

HIGH POINT, N.C., Feb. 11, 2010 ? “Triad Today” has been so impressed by the continuing transformation and success at High Point University, they have invited a second guest from the university to be featured on the program. Roger Clodfelter, assistant vice president and director of ?WOW!? at HPU will appear on the program at 6:30 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 12. The program airs on the local ABC affiliate, WXLV-ABC 45 (Time Warner channel 7).

The program previously featured Dr. Dennis Carroll, provost and vice president for Academic Affairs at HPU.

During Clodfelter’s appearance, he will discuss HPU’s promise to students ? to “receive an extraordinary education in an inspiring environment with caring people.”

“High Point University has invested in state-of-the-art classroom technology and other unique classroom environments,” Clodfelter says. “We are consistently adding new courses and majors that will utilize these great tools, such as trading room, television and radio studios and much more to help students gain real world experience.”

What’s more is the fact that students have all of these wonderful classroom tools and yet are surrounded in an immersive learning experience based on “values” and a holistic approach to education.

“Our Campus Concierge program, for example, models the value of ‘service,’” Clodfelter says. “It serves as a one-stop shop, scheduling tutoring appointments, providing use of complimentary kindle book readers, GPS units and more. ? Our students are surrounded by extraordinary service at HPU. We know our students ‘inherit’ the values we model and that they will apply them to their lives and the lives of others, for years to come.  It is our passionate focus on providing an environment that prepares our students to lead successful and significant lives that makes High Point University so distinct.?

The program will repeat at 10 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 14, on WMYV-My 48 (Time Warner channel 15).
