photoWelcome HPU Parents!

We are Darrell and Nancy Blackwell (Shane ’15) from Charlotte, North Carolina.  As HPU parents we have quickly realized the importance of embracing our HPU family and supporting the amazing opportunities this community offers.  High Point University provides extraordinary academics, small class sizes, world class professors, superior facilities, numerous study abroad opportunities and is ranked nationally in ‘America’s Best Colleges.’

As President Qubein always says, “Your present circumstances don’t determine where you go; they merely determine where you start.” The starting line is here at High Point University and this holistic approach teaches students the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of learning.  It shows them the significance of relationships and encourages them to form purposeful connections in their communities.

Have a wonderful year and welcome Class of 2017!
