At High Point University, part of the inspiring environment takes place outside of the classroom. In a typical year two-thirds of the entering freshman come from states other than North Carolina; one-third, from more than 500 miles away. As a result, students tend to stay on campus over the weekends. In fact, even students who could easily go home often don’t because their friends at High Point don’t and because there is much to do on campus and off.
The Office of Student Activities works to plan a calendar jam-packed with fun and exciting opportunities. Every week we offer a variety events from Monday movies in the Extraordinaire Cinema, Wednesday Night Live events such as coffee houses or karaoke, and venture trips off campus to different places in the surrounding community. All activities are complimentary to our students! Students can find out about upcoming events through Facebook and Twitter and the Campus Concierge Daily Email.
Campus Activities Team (CAT) is a student run organization that works to plan all the great activities on campus each semester.
High Point University is located in North Carolina on the east coast of the United States. We are fortunate to be located in the city of High Point, a city of 100,000. High Point is a member of the Piedmont Triad, which is an area with a population of over 1.4 million people. Some of the national and global companies in the local area include AT&T, Bank of America, Citicards, FedEx, Honda Aircraft Company, Klaussner Furniture Industries, Krispy Kreme, Lincoln Financial Group, Mack Trucks, Polo Ralph Lauren Corporation, Proctor and Gamble, The Volvo Group, UPS and many others. North Carolina has a mild climate, allowing us to enjoy a few days of light snow in the winter, long fall and spring seasons and warm sunshine in the summer.
High Point University is committed to providing some of the finest residential communities and options in private higher education in the country. With over 75% of our entering freshmen coming from 45 states other than North Carolina and many foreign countries, High Point University is by design a very residential campus. All of our students are required to reside on campus until they have reached senior status, unless they commute from their parent’s permanent address. Living on campus within a student-focused, caring community provides wonderful opportunities for students to get involved in all areas of academic and campus life. High Point University provides an environment where students can thrive both in and out of the classroom. Our Residential Communities are a big component of the campus life at High Point University, and the Office of Student Life takes pride in the support that we are able to offer our students through our Residential Community.
To assist each student while residing on our campus we have professional full time Resident Directors that reside in certain buildings across campus. This Resident Director is responsible for the basic maintenance, cleanliness, disciplinary, and day to day operation of his or her residence hall(s). Each hall/floor has a Resident Assistant. Resident Assistants are upperclassmen students who serve as a para-professional staff member. Resident Assistants have been carefully selected and trained to serve as role models, peer helpers, and provide information to their residents. Resident Assistants run hall programs to support their residential community, serve as a liaison between the student and the Student Life Staff, and if necessary, write disciplinary reports to help the Student Life staff constructively correct violations of the High Point University Conduct Code.We have staff on call 24 hours a day to assist with student needs anytime of the day or night. Each building has Resident Assistants that are on duty each night. Resident Assistants assist with nightly incidents ranging from students who do not feel well to opening a door for a student that has forgotten their key. In addition to the Resident Assistants who are on duty, there are also two Resident Directors who are on duty each night. If a student needs to go to the Doctor, Emergency Room, is having a roommate conflict, we are there to support and assist. Our door is always open to our students when there are concerns or issues that need positive resolution.
