HPU Campus Named One of Top Five in Nation

HPU 2HIGH POINT, N.C., Jan. 27, 2015 – High Point University’s campus has been named one of the top five in the nation.

According to 2015 Niche Best Campus Rankings, which looked at 2,245 public and private institutions across the country, HPU is No. 5 and in good company with other universities at the top of the list, such as Yale University, Stanford University and Bowdoin College.

A high ranking indicates that the campus technology, labs and classrooms are state-of-the-art; students love their campus community and have a strong sense of school pride; students are happy with the quality of campus resources and facilities; and campus dining and housing services are high quality and reasonably priced.

The Best Campus ranking provides a comprehensive assessment of the quality of campus facilities and services at traditional four-year colleges and universities in the United States. It uses data sourced from various government and public data sets, Niche’s own proprietary data, and 794,326 opinion-based survey responses about campus quality from 102,060 current students and recent alumni.

Other North Carolina schools on the list include Duke University at No. 35, Davidson College at No. 54, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill at No. 64, and Elon University at No. 94.

“As a student, I take pride in the resources and services that are available to us on a daily basis at HPU,” says senior Briayna Cuffie. “The staff and faculty love their profession and are always eager to help students reach their goals. To know my university is ranked alongside these prestigious schools validates what we students already know – that we attend an extraordinary institution.”

The top five Best Campus rankings are:

  1. Bowdoin College
  2. Washington University, St. Louis
  3. Stanford University
  4. Yale University
  5. High Point University

Being named the No. 5 campus in the country is one of many national accolades HPU has received. The Slane Student Center was recently named the No. 1 student union in the country, while HPU’s Security Department was named No. 12. U.S. News and World Report has also ranked High Point University the No. 1 Regional College in the South for three consecutive years.
