    One year ago, attending the Presidential Scholarship weekend changed our family for the better. HPU became part of our life. My son #2 knew that weekend that HPU was on his short list. After being accepted to more prestigious schools, he decided, despite a lot of pressure from family and friends, to take a leap of faith and go to HPU. He entered in the Fall of 2016 into the honors program. The opportunities he's had thus far have been amazing. HPU delivers on everything and more. In addition, my son #1 decided to transfer to HPU in the Fall of 2016 as well. Two brothers, same school, very different experiences and both having an extraordinary education and experience.
    I read everything on the internet about HPU, much good, some not so good. I was so nervous about whether or not we had made a good decision. I couldn't be more pleased with HPU and proud that my boys are part of such a warm, loving college community. So...HPU, plan on seeing son #3 in the Fall of 2018!
    What’s not to love about HPU. They have wonderful engaged teachers that enjoy teaching. They help make learning fun. HPU offers many different areas of study and are constantly adding more. The campus is beautiful. Beautiful flowers & piped musics as you walk to classes. The intramural program as well as division III sports can keep you busy either playing or watching. The food is amazing. There are many many different places to choose from including 2 Starbucks! The dorms are brand New and spacious.
