How HPU helped you get there: “High Point University has helped me get to where I am now because of the fantastic professors. The professors really believe in each and every student, and they help them reach their full potential. It’s nice having small classes where each professor knows your name and cares about how you do in class.
I used Career and Professional Development to update my LinkedIn for a very professional presence. I also used the office to learn about the career fair which allowed me to meet Tom James on campus.“
Most impactful mentor at HPU: “Larry Quinn is the most impactful mentor I’ve had at High Point. He taught me that a career in sales would fit my personality perfectly. He helped me realize my full potential.”
Most impactful moment at HPU: “My most impactful moment at High Point was my initiation into a fraternity. Pi Kappa Phi has helped me grow not only as a student, but also a person. Greek Life is a great opportunity to grow your connections and relationships. After I joined a fraternity I have made the dean’s list for the last six semesters.“
Advice for underclassmen: “Use all of High Point’s great resources. Join clubs around campus, use the office of Career & Professional Development, and focus on growing and becoming a better person each day. If you follow this advice, success will follow.”
