I attended HPU one semester, and I am transferring because of the poor academics. I feel as though my time there was a complete waste. Go to HPU if you want a mediocre education with great amenities. In addition to the less than stellar academics, the city of High Point is scary and unsafe. Some of the students are nice and down to earth. There is a concentration of wealth and privilege amongst the students though.

The problem with HPU is the culture. If you're affluent, from the North East, and pretty much vacation on Martha's Vineyard monthly or drive a 90000 dollar automobile, you'll fit right in. The problem is that's all there is and that's the mindset that permeates the campus, from the president to the students (the faculty, for the most part, are the exception). There's no diversity, really. If you're looking for a school in area, try Guilford or UNCG.

The college experience was great overall. This college lacks diversity in the faculty particularly in the Communications Dept. You get what you put in at HPU. Not a great school for someone not motivated to stay focused and succee.
