Happy 90th Birthday, High Point University!

Ice cream sundaes on Sunday can mean only one thing — a birthday party!

At a Founder’s Day celebration on campus this Sunday, High Point University marked it’s 90th anniversary since it’s doors first opened on September 14, 1924. And we must say, HPU is as timeless as ever.

As we look back on the last 90 years, we are reminded of what has made students #HighPointHappy for decades.

Let’s take a stroll down memory lane together…
