Gavin DeGraw at HPU!

The end is near!  While you’re wrapping up your school year (or maybe even your high school career), I thought I’d give you a few highlights of the end of High Point University’s school year!

Classes officially ended on April 30th and we believe another successful year at High Point University is a great reason to celebrate!  So each year, we throw PANTHERPALOOZA, one very large celebration complete with inflatable games, hot air balloon rides and tons of food and ice cream from local restaurants.

Ohhhh, and not to mention the much-anticipated GAVIN DEGRAW concert!  As I mentioned in my previous post, Dulce Winders, an incoming freshman with the Class of 2013, was our ticket contest winner.  She brought a friend, made several more and was thoroughly convinced once again that HPU is the place to be!

A few days later exams began and before we knew it, it was time for 2009 Commencement!  Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin was the featured speaker and Challenger the Bald Eagle flew over an awestruck crowd!

We’re getting closer each day to welcoming our next class to High Point University.  The Class of 2013 will be our largest class ever and we can’t wait for them to join us on our extraordinary journey!
