From High Point University

High Point University is The Premier Life Skills University. Having radically transformed the campus since 2005 under the leadership of President Nido R. Qubein, HPU knows transformation well. That’s why leaders commit to preparing students for the world as it’s going to be, not as it is. HPU is a values-based intuition that arms students with the life skills employers want. This is best showcased by the 97% placement rate for graduates employed or continuing their education within 6 months of graduation. At HPU, every student receives an extraordinary education in an inspiring environment with caring people. By focusing holistically on transformational education, HPU attracts students from all 50 states and nearly 50 countries. A $2 billion investment in academic programs and student life facilities proves HPU’s commitment to transformation. The university’s call to action is simple and profound: Choose to be extraordinary!
