Overall Rating

I am an out of state student and was home sick on weekends until my mom recommended I join a sorioity. My soriority sisters have been wonderful and supportive. High Point has a lot to offer academically, athletically & socially. I miss going to football & hockey games which this school currently does not have. It is a division 1 university so the other sports (basketball, soccer, lacross just to name a few) are extremely competitive and fun to watch. Freshman can have cars on campus, but because of the distance I was unable to take my car (I live in NH and High Point is in NC). Having my car would have allowed me to be able to get around the city as there isn't anything within walking distance. The school does provide transportation to and from local stores, malls and other facilities which is a hugh plus. Overall I rate HPU 5+ and recommend this school.
