A message from High Point University President Dr. Martinson 


ongratulations Class of 1998 

■ W**.*j 

We are proud of you. When I 
was a boy, I learned a verse by 
Longfellow which has haunted 
me in a good way: 

Lives of great men [women] all 

remind us 
We can make our lives sublime, 
And departing, leave behind us 
Footprints on the sands of time. 

What a splendid message that 
sent to me in my youth - it still 
does. Each of us is special, and 
we want to use our live for 
something that counts. We want 
purpose and direction. I prayed 
for that in my youth, and I still 
do. I think all of us want purpose 
to our existence, that which 
motivates us to do good and 
even great things. What is good? 
What is great? Goodness and 
even greatness to me is giving 
from the heart, anything else is 
a cheat on life. 

In spite of what we may read 
and hear about our society in 
need, I have great faith in 
students. You are the future, and 
I have faith in you. Our prayers 
go with you always. 

With highest regard,

We arrived on campus our freshmen year knowing no one. As we 
began to participate in activities, we recognized faces and remembered 
names. Acquaintances and friendships were formed as we served our 
campus and our community. As seniors, we realized the value of that 
community and the process which brought us to that point.

Our Community 

First, a college is an educationally purposeful community - a place where faculty and 
students share academic goals and work together to strengthen teaching and learning 
on campus. 

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] or the person is honored and where diversity is aggressively pursued. 

Fourth, a college or university is a disciplined community - a place where individuals 
accept their obligations to the group and where well-defined governance procedures 
guide behavior for the common good. 

Fifth, a college or university is a caring community - one in which the well-being of each 
member is sensitively supported and where service to others is encouraged. 

Sixth, a college or university is a celebrative community - one in which the heritage of 
the institution is remembered and where rituals affirming both tradition and change are 
widely shared.
