High Point University: A Profile 

High Point University is a four-year liberal arts university founded in 
1924. Enrollment has grown to approximately 3,000 daytime and 
evening degree students. There are 125 faculty members with a 
student-to-faculty ratio of 1 6 to 1 . Sixty-two percent of classes enroll 
fewer than 20 students. Seventy-five percent of the facutly hold 
doctorates while the remainder hold one or more master's degrees. 
Degree programs include Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, 
Master of Science, and Master of Business Education. America's 
Best Colleges (published by US News and World Reports ) ranked 
High Point University among the top ten of regional liberal arts 
colleges in the US in 1996, 1997, and 1998. The University has 
varsity teams in men's and women's soccer, basketball, tennis, 
track, cross country, men's baseball and golf, and women's volley- 
ball. There are four national fraternities and four national sororities 
along with over 40 clubs and organizations. 

I have great faith in the future of humankind 
because I believe in you, the young people 
whom we hold in our hearts. You, the class of 
2000, are special to us as are all graduating 
classes, and on behalf of the entire High Point 
University family, I congratulate you. 

In the challenging age we need guidance. Dol- 
lars, guns, and the marvelous technological 
products of science and industry are not 
enough. We need faith which gives hope - 
something far bigger than ourselves. From 
where does it come? Always, growing societies 
record their faith in God while decaying societ- 
ies lack faith in God. Regardless, America will 
be strong with renewed faith in the love of God 
and in God's intelligent mercy. 

I am optimistic because I know you. You repre- 
sent the best in America. You have learned 
what we all must learn: that there are well- 
springs of power outside ourselves that must 
be tapped, and with God's help, they will be. 

Best wishes for a wonderful future.

Move-In Day 

New students and their families 
navigate orientation 

Some families travelled over 12 hours. ...some only 
a few minutes, all with the same goal in mind - to 
move in to High Point University. Parents and 
students navigated moving in, then on to the Slane 
Center for their matriculation packets and to check 
schedules. The Student Orientation Staff (S.O.S.) 
helped new students with that task and with their 
transition to college life. Kat Hoffman, who served 
as student core leader, along with her S.O.S. crew of 
60, helped make move-in day a smoothly-run suc-

Entertainment Committee kept the 
community busy with events 

There are many things to do during the first week 
of school besides getting moved in and starting 
classes. The Entertainment Crew, headed by Jenny 
May, planned and coordinated daytime and 
evening social events. These events were de- 
signed to assist new students in meeting others. 
Evening events included the luau, street dance, 
dessert social, movie night, hypnotist show, and 
an outdoor concert. Daytime events included an 
outdoor concert, picnic, and lawn party

Study Abroad 

Learning how the world works 

The Study Abroad Program is an important part of 
High Point University's education program. Se- 
lected students have the opportunity to live and 
study in countries such as England, Ireland, France, 
Germany, Mexico, and Spain. This program gives a 
student first-hand knowledge of living in another 
culture plus valuable experience travelling. Pro- 
grams cater to students seeking foreign language 
studies and with those who are just adventurous at 
heart. There is plenty of time spent studying in the 
classroom, but many students also enjoy short 
sightseeing trips during the weekends.

Student Activities 

Entertaining the campus 

The SAB is a division of SGA and is chaired hv Chris 
Huff. SAB produces about 35-40 events per semester 
ranging from comedians, coffeehouse singers, nov- 
elty acts to movie nights. All funding is from SGA 
and all SAB events are chosen by students. Every 
semester a delegation of SAB members attends a 
NACA (National Association of Campus Activities) 
conference. At the conference the delegation views 
talented acts from all over the US and world in order 
to decide which to bring to campus. Once acts are 
booked, a master calendar is made and the SAB board 
makes sure each event runs smoothly. 

Chris Huff and Gene Liauw prepare the display 
table at NACA.

Volunteer Activities 

Campus Connection brings together 
students with volunteer service 

High Point University is a community leader in many areas, 
especially volunteer service. The faculty /staff and students 
completed over 25,000 hours of community service on and 
off campus during 1 999. The Campus Connection Volunteer 
Center helps students coordinate their service and provides 
a valuable link to outside agencies. The Center is headed by 
Burton Martin, director, and Nick Williams, assistant direc- 
tor. Clubs and organizations regularly complete volunteer 
service projects including crop walk, fund raising, lunch 
buddies, clean ups, etc. The most successful programs in- 
clude the Halloween Carnival and Easter Egg Hunt for local 
children. Both are held on campus through student support.

Campus Changes 

High Point University campus 
continues to grow 

As we approached the millenium, our campus 
made some significant improvements. Hayworth 
Chapel gained a larger vestibule and new out- 
ward appearance, including a beautiful steeple. 
Next door, Haworth Hall of Science made a 
similar transformation, adding more classroom 
and office space. Parking lots were enlarged, due 
to the influx of more commuters and a greater 
need for convenient parking. The LAC became 
the Academic Services Center which caters to all 
students and their academic needs.

Residence Life 

How we spend 70% of our time 

Only 30% of students' time is spend in the class- 
room, making residential life an important part of 
one's college career. There are over 800 students 
residing on campus, most in double occupancy 
rooms. Resident assistants, located on each floor, 
help plan activities, especially in the beginning of 
the year to help students get to know each other. 
Each hall is a bevy of activity - from study groups, 
impromptu get-togethers, and laundry visits,to just 
hanging out in the lounges. It may be hard to adjust 
to living among others, but in the end, it's a great 
way to be a part of the community.

75 Years of Excellence 

High Point University celebrates its 
diamond anniversary in 1999 

In 1924 High Point College was founded. Seventy-five years later, the 
dreams of our founders are being realized: a beautiful campus environment 
filled with educational opportunities and a student population that mirrors 
the world. In the past 7 decades High Point University has earned numer- 
ous academic distinctions. Since 1995 it has been ranked among the top ten 
of regional liberal arts colleges in the US by America's Best Colleges (a 
publication of US News & World Report). It has also placed among the top 
20 most efficient regional institutions in the nation, in 1997 received the 
National Student Retention Award, and was bestowed grants from the 
Kellogg and Toelo Foundations. The Campus Chronicle newspaper has 
been listed as one of the top 20 campus newspapers by the American 
Scholastic Press. As we venture into the next 75 years, who knows what 
outstanding achievements await our community. 

Dr. Jacob Martinson leads High Point University into the 
new millenium. 

Among the 1 20 colleges and universities affil 
ated with the United Methodist Church, Hi$ 
Point University is one of the fastest-growing 
institutions. Campus enrollment in 1999 
more than 3,000 students. 

High Point University became a member 
Big South Conference and NCAA Division 1 » 
1 999. High Point University competes in 7 men' 
sports and 7 women's sports.

on the Greensward. Teams from organizations and 
residence halls met up for an afternoon of friendly 
competition. Games included mattress race, hippity 
hop, three-legged race, dizzy bats, and water bal- 
loon toss. This event was sponsored by IFC and 
Panhellenic to help boost community spirit. The

Once Upon a Mattress 

A comedy musical draws appreciative 
crowds during Parents' Weekend 

The Tower Players presented "Once Upon a Mattress" on No- 
vember 5-9, 1 999, an offbeat comedy musical based on the tale of 
"The Princess and the Pea." In the plav, a talkative Queen and 
silent King rule a kingdom where no one is allowed to be 
married until their son the Prince has wed. The Queen wants her 
son to remain a bachelor and devises impossible tests for mar- 
riage "candidates." Her plan works until a loyal knight, Harrv, 
(driven by his desire to wed his beloved Larken) finds Winnifred, 
a charming (and not very shy) princess. With the help of the 
wizard, minstrel, and jester, Winnifred passes the sensitivity 
test (the pea in the mattress) and wins the heart and the hand of 
Prince Dauntless. 

'rince Dauntless and Winnifred study together 
a order for her to pass the Queen's test (in order 
3 be married). 

The Queen confronts Larken as she tries to run away 
(disguised as a boy) when she realizes she and Harry 
cannot marry.

fun went to Delta Sig and Kappa Delta. Student 
Activities Board walked off with the coveted Panther 
Spirit Award. The SGA Vice President Award went

unusual and fun floats - a boat. 




Residence Hall 

Living on campus is a valuable experience during 
one's college career. The residence life staff helps 
make that experience as positive as possible. The 
campus is divided into two sections: East and West 
Campus. West Campus is supervised by Rans 
Triplett (AD), Matt McLendon ( ARD) and Ted Sikes 
(RD). East Campus is supervised by Leslie Veach 
(AD), Mary Beth Ritchie (ARD) and Beverly Nunley 
(RD). There are 27 RAs (resident assistants) divided 
among East/West Campus. Each RA is trained at 
the beginning of the year and is responsible for 
every aspect of his or her individual hall.
