52 Weeks #HighPointHappy: Going Down in History

November 17, 2014

On this day in history:

 Elizabeth I acceded to the English throne upon the death of Queen Mary.

U.S. Congress held its first session in Washington, D.C. in the partially completed Capitol building.

The Walt Disney animated feature “The Little Mermaid” opened in wide release.

And you officially applied as an Early Action applicant to High Point University — this day will go down in history as the first day of your collegiate journey and a successful career.

Today, you can look back over your academic and extracurricular accomplishments of the last 13 years and be proud of where you stand today, on the verge of a bright future. Your past 13 years of hard work have all culminated to this very point, and you have taken the most important step by applying to High Point University, where your goals will be nurtured and will blossom.

Congratulations, Class of 2019! You have four years ahead of academic enrichments, personal growth and exploration, and you have come to the right place! Good luck, applicants. We look forward to getting to know you.
