A Profile 

High Point University 
is a four-year liberal 
arts university 
founded in 1924 and 
related to the United 
Methodist Church. 
Enrollment is 
approximately 2,000 
with 100 full-time 
faculty members. 
Degree programs 
include BA, BS, MS, 
and MBA. 




It is indeed an enormous privilege to 
congratulate those of you who make 
up the Class of 1997. While there are 
some older students, all of you are 
truly filled with youth and hope, 
energy and aspiration, and you can 
embark now on a new journey along 
life's way. Every parent, mentor, 
professor and friend watches you and 
wishes you the very best. You have 
worked relentlessly for your wonderful 
achievements. I congratulate you on an 
honor hard earned, thus well deserved. 

To the rising sophomores, juniors, and 
seniors. Let me say, I wish for you 
God's speed as you continue with your 
study and your work. Working with 
you is a great pleasure. One of the 
greatest blessings of life is for us to be 
involved in something that evokes all 
of our allegiance. My wish for you is 
that you will be as happy in your work 
as I am in mine. I know you to be 
mature persons - loving, responsible, 
and productive. 

I have learned through the years that 
besides my trust in God, I have derived 
the greatest strength from the 
kindness, love, and complete 
understanding of loved ones and 
friends. I know that nearly all of you 
who graduate as well as those students 
who remain have learned that. Others 

With warmest regard and appreciation,

University Conduct 
Code preamble) 

The library serves as a quiet place to 
study and work as pairs on projects.

purposeful community - a place

Open & Just 

Second, a college or university is an open community 

- a place where freedom of expression is 

uncompromisingly protected and where civility is 

powerfully affirmed. Third, a college or university is 

a just community - a place where the sacredness 

[supreme worth] of the person is honored and where 

diversity is aggressively pursued.

High Point University has a 

commitment to providing cultural 
enrichment through their study abroad 
opportunities. Students who qualify 
have the choice of study in England,

also been popular and educational.

During the holidays our campus displays acts of 

charity, generousity and fellowship. Halloween and 

Easter parties are organized by the University 

students for the local elementary children. Christmas 

(and other religious holidays) are recognized during 

the week before exams through the traditional 

chapel service and lessons and carols. By celebrating 

our traditions we grow closer as a community.

Celebrating holidays 
also means celebrating 
traditions. Some of our 
traditions have been 
adopted or developed 
just for our campus to 
help make our 
community unique. 
Students have also 
contributed to these 
traditions by organizing 
events which happen 
year after year. 
Tradition binds us 
together and helps us 
remember our history 
as a community.

events, artist hospitality, 
and technical duties.

High Point University is more 

than just students or faculty. It is a 

community involving many 

people and many roles, all of 

which blend together to form our 

university. We work, we play, we 

learn, and we grow together.
