How about that Convocation Ceremony?
One of High Point University’s most treasured traditions, the 2014 Convocation Ceremony welcomed the largest class of incoming freshman we’ve ever seen — 1470. That’s 20 more students than the population of the entire student body in 2005.
All of you sat on Roberts Hall Lawn as Challenger the Eagle flew over your head and we introduced you as official members of the HPU Class of 2018, and what a diverse class you are! You are valedictorians, Eagle Scouts, national champion athletes and leaders among your peers. We are so honored to have you!
Welcome, Class of 2018!
