Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2006

The campus is beautiful, and the education is top-notch. I feel like I'm hurting the value of my degree, but I must tell the truth about the rest. It is very expensive. Scholarship opportunities within the university are extremely limited. I took my daughter there to tour, and the most prevalent theme was we want your money in every way that we can get it. Also, it is local to us, and many of our friends go there on a regular basis to fix or rebuild things that have been destroyed by all of the partying. It now has a local reputation for major drug problems funded by spoiled, rich kids. As long as the money flows, the administration doesn't seem to mind, and they try to keep it hidden (unsuccessfully). It has changed since I received my degree. The campus is bigger and better than ever, but I would not choose it now for the reasons mentioned above. I'm thankful my daughter chose not to go there for many reasons.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2009

Pros: I graduated from a prestige school. HPU has a lots of history in NC and the surrounding area. The school has a beautiful campus and a wonderful faculty and staff. I am a proud graduate of HPU. However unfortunate, due to the decline and budget cuts in government both local and state, it has been very difficult to obtain a job in the field of public administration.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

My graduate program is unique in that it is a 5 year program to obtain a bachelors and a masters degree. I am pursuing a masters degree in Elementary Education, with a concentration in STEM. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Our graduate program effectively integrates all of the knowledge and tools that we need to be successful educators in this 21st century to keep children engaged in, and excited about school.

Degree: Non-Profit Management
Graduation Year: 2011

In additional to its exceptionally beautiful campus and state of the art technology, High Point University offers an excellent graduate program. Class room sizes are small (approx 15 max) and student to professor interaction is high. Professors are available and very knowledgeable about their particular subject matter. Each course curriculum is rigorous and intense, but geared towards a good grasp of the subject matter. Networking among students is encouraged and made easy because once enrolled, student within the same program follow the same course curricula for the two-three year duration of the program. The only con would be involvement of professors in ensuring student get good job placement after graduation.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

Our graduate program is a special 5 year fast track to earn our masters in Elementary Education. We were able to choose which track we wanted (STEM or Literacy). This is a very unique program that allows us to take graduate courses during our senior year of college, and then we have summer school and one normal year of grad school before I graduate in my Masters. I think this is a very good opportunity, and a good program to be in right now so I can come out with a masters education from a great school that is way ahead in the STEM Education compared to other schools around the country.
