The Fun Stuff with Ryan

Segment #9 from High Point University


Meet Ryan, a senior marketing major from Long Island, New York. He’s going to share with you how HPU’s campus provides you with the dream student experience with an abundance of student activities. There’s so much to do on campus and we’re just a short drive to the surrounding mountains and beaches. Tell us more, Ryan.

– Thanks Alex, hey everyone. Did you know that there’s 168 hours in a week, and as a college student, you’ll be in class for approximately 20 of those? Yes, there’s homework, study time, and projects to account for, but what about the fun stuff? HPU has long understood that college should be more than just time spent in a class. It’s a time for students like me to find their home away from home, discover lifelong friendships, uncover and grow their passions and hobbies and make lifelong memories. HPU is a vibrant campus with more events than I have time to talk about. I’m president of our campus activities team and I can tell you there is never a dull moment on our campus, whether it’s our weekly complimentary food truck block party, athletic events, our seasonal ice skating rink, our student concerts, or our carnivals. We’ve had artists like T-Pain, Flo Rida, Two Friends, and so many more perform here. If you’re into sports, we’ll probably find you at basketball games in our beautiful arena, and that’s just one of 17 D1 teams here on campus. As a student, you get to enjoy these events with your friends every single year, and the campus is designed to promote socializing. Fire pits are located for outdoor gatherings year round. We even have outdoor igloos during the cooler winter months to ensure that all areas of campus are ready for your use. I never thought I’d be able to get all this life experience, career preparation and fun from a school, but HPU gave me that. Back to you, Alex.

– Wow, that is one active student body. There are so many things to do on and around campus. I definitely have to come back for some of those insane concerts or a basketball game. Thanks again, Ryan.
