HIGH POINT UNIVERSITY:
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,
US NEWS AND WORLD REPORT has ranked
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-

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

that sports medicine majors spend in the classroom and on the
