How HPU helped you get there: “High Point University is incredible. It truly does have an extremely inspiring and motivational environment. High Point taught me to never give up on my goals.

I entered as a freshman, ready to get an education, and I left with a family.“

Professor Quinn, thank you for everything you taught me! I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to work with you.“
