HIGH POINT, N.C., May 20, 2011 — High Point University was recently chosen as a member of the 2010-2011 Colleges of Distinction, a unique online college guide to assist students, parents and counselors.

Celebrating its seventh year, the Colleges of Distinction list is based upon exemplary commitment to four distinctions: engaged students, great teaching, vibrant communities and successful outcomes. The list focuses on what “really matters in a college experience.”

Colleges of Distinction makes their selections based on the value of the education and experience the school provides, and highlight schools that offer a holistic education, which is exactly what HPU prides itself on.

HPU is one of six colleges in the state to earn this distinction.

At High Point University, every student receives an extraordinary education in an inspiring environment with caring people.
