HPU Thanks 82 Passport Partners with Luncheon


High Point University Passport Partners Luncheon HIGH POINT, N.C., Dec. 21, 2012 – Business owners from High Point and surrounding areas came to the High Point University campus on Dec. 19 for a Passport Partner luncheon where the university thanked them for their partnership.

The program began in 2006 with less than 10 partners. Today, it boasts 82 partners that include a variety of restaurants and retail shops, which are identified by the HPU flags and decals on their shop windows and doors.

Passport Partners are businesses where HPU students, faculty and staff can make purchases using their HPU ID card, known as the “Passport” card, making it easy and convenient for the HPU family to shop in the community. HPU also provides student shuttles to and from many of the businesses three days a week. And the partnership doesn’t stop there; HPU often invites the businesses onto campus to promote their products and services.

“The Passport Partner program introduces our students to local businesses and makes shopping local simple and convenient,” says Lyndsey Derrow, chief campus concierge. “The retailers love working with our students and growing their business at the same time.”
