While we were in charming North Carolina, we also paid our very first visit to the beautiful High Point University campus. We’ve had three HPU students staying with us this summer, all interning for media companies.
Here are some photos from our visit, and some of the terrific information we learned!
Media Fellows Program
Each year 16 incoming communication majors are granted membership into High Point University’s Media Fellows Program through the Nido R. Qubein School of Communication. Media Fellows live in a living-learning community their freshman year and have options to travel abroad. During their college career, Media Fellows also participate in summer internships at national media companies, participate in seminars related to their major and produce a Capstone project their senior year.
From the cinema on the first floor to the upscale restaurant on the fifth floor, to the two-story state-of-the-art “gaming and restaurant” concept and much more, students enjoy multiple environments for fellowship all in one central location.
Slane Student Center
At 90,000 square feet, Slane Student Center is the definitive center of activity for HPU students. The university’s 450-seat cafeteria, campus post office, bookstore, meeting rooms and recreation areas, including a basketball court, aerobics room, cardiovascular center, fully equipped weight room and indoor running track, are located here. Outside, Slane is a popular gathering place for students with a tiered dining terrace, basketball courts, the Maynard Swimming Pool and 18-person Jacuzzi.
As you can see, we had a great time exploring HPU’s vast campus. We are excited to have HPU students staying with us this summer, and hope to continue to welcome them again next summer!
