ish your minds. We, the faculty and staff, are so proud of 
you and all students High Point University. 

During your years as a student here, you have seen 
many changes - academic and curriculum changes (We have 
been consistently ranked among the top tier of regional 
liberal arts colleges.), athletic changes (a full-fledged Divi- 
sion I program), changes in our lovely chapel building, a 
completely updated and expanded science building, a new

High Point Uni\'ersity, founded in 1924, currently 
enrolls nearly 3,000 students in day, evening, and 
graduate programs. For six consecutive years, US 
NEWS & WORLD REPORT has ranked High Point 
Uni\'ersity among the top tier of regional liberal 
arts colleges; and in 2000, High Point was ranked 
Number One among regional liberal arts colleges 
in North Carolina. In addition, on three occasions, 
High Point among the 20 most efficient senior 
colleges and uni\ersities in the nation because it 
has achie\'ed quality while keeping costs low. In 
1999, High Point Uni\'ersity was one of 100 senior 
colleges and uni\'ersities in the United States se- 
lected for listing on The Templeton Honor Roll of 
Colleges that encourage Character-De\-elopment; 
in 1997, the University received the National Stu- 
dent Retention Award; and in 1996, the Peterson's 
publication Smart Parents Guide to College lauded 
the Uni\'ersitv's efforts to inculcate values and to 
encourage graduation. 

Currently, two thirds of the entering freshmen 
come from states other than North Carolina; one- 
third, from more than 500 miles away, including 
nearly 1 50 students who come from countries other 
than the United States. Such diversity makes the 
campus a microcosm of the world— an ideal place 
for learning to live and work in the global society 
of the 21st century. 

The Uni\'ersity is clearly a university on the move. 
Since 1985, enrollment has more than doubled; the 
University has generated more than $41 million in 
gifts and grants; the endowment has grown from 
$8.7 million to $44.3 million; the number of faculty 
has more than doubled; the percentage of faculty 
with terminal degrees has grown from 56% to 78%; 
and enrollment in the honors program has grown 
from 32 students to 156 students. Also, the Univer- 
sity has committed $58 million to construction and 
renovation, including $28 million for projected 
construction— $15 million for the proposed Charles 
E. and Pauline Lewis Hayworth Eine Arts Center; 
$3 million for the proposed Norton Center for 
International Home Eurnishings, and $10 million 
for renovations to the University's outdoor ath- 
letic facilities. Also, during this period, the Uni\'er- 
sity has mo\'ed from N AIA, to NC A A-II, to NC AA- 
I. The Uni\'ersity sponsors numerous honor societ- 
ies and over 40 clubs and organizations, including 
four national fraternities and four national sorori- 
ties. More significantly. University students record 
more than 25,000 hours of community serxice an- 



A Week of Fun Among the Colors of Autumn 



SAB brought to campus the speed and crashes of racing through 
virtual NASCAR. This thrilUng, hold-on-to-your seat activity was the 
first of many during Fall Invasion. Fun Flicks combined students' best 
dance moves with their favorite songs to create an MTV-style music 
video. Sponsored by SAB, this was free to anyone outgoing enough to 
show off their skills.

November 4-5, 2000 



The events of Fallapalooza entertained students and family alike as 
parents arrived on campus for the annual Family Weekend. Faculty 
members were on hand to meet and mingle, and everyone participated 
in a wide array of activities. The Tower Players produced "Nunsense" 
for the enjoyment of all while the Dance-A-Thon loosened things up a

SAB attends Southeast Regional NACA conference 



The Benton Convention Center in Winston-Salem served as host to the 
National Association for Campus Activities (NACA) Southeast Re- 
gional Conference. Nine students chosen to represent High Point 
University had an opportunity to attend educational sessions and a 
live showcase of performers, allowing students an opportunity to 
negotiate deals for next semester's Student Activities Board events.

Each year the University hosts the Crop Walk for the 
city of High Point. 



The Crop Walk is a national fundraiser to help eliminate hunger in the

helped with the event: Genesis, Delta Sigma Phi, the Volunteer Center, 
Alpha Phi Omega, and Kappa Chi.

Playing and competing all in the name of fun. 



Saturday, August 28, 2000, was the day for students to meet on the 
Greensward for Derby Day. Events included the mattress race, hippity 
hop, three-legged race, dizzy bats, tug of war, and water balloon toss. 
Teams from organizations and residence halls came out to participate 
for a day of food, fun, and excitement. 

All that hard work gives stu- 
dents a healthy appetite.

Sports Medicine 

The personnel in\ol\ed in the sports medicine program have 
worked hard all year to keep High Point's athletes healthy and 
in top physical shape. Like High Point's athletics, the sports 
medicine program continues to grow by introducing more and 
more students to the field of athletic training. The many hours 
that sports medicine majors spend in the classroom and on the 
field have enabled them to learn about the prevention, evalua- 
tion, and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. The sports medicine 
staff will continue to ensure our athlete's safetv so they can 
compete to their maximum le\el.
