We took our first official escorted tour this weekend at High Point University in High Point NC. OMG!!! If Julia decides NOT to attend I will find something to get my Masters degree in and enroll. Sam was sold too. WOW! Probably not the smartest thing to tour a school like this first, as I am not sure many schools will come close to this! Their philosophy is "Expect Extraordinary". I am sure a lot of what is there is NOT necessary for a great college experience but hey, if they provide it, why not! There are no words to describe this place...country club or resort come close!
This greeted us as we drove in. SOLD!
Just one of many fountains
Along this promenade are benches with statues of people throughout history that represent "extraordinary" and they play classical music through the speakers 24/7. All the classroom buildings line this area.
A typical classroom.
The view from the stadium
The view out of one of the study areas that also have outside deck seating.
Cool tables in 1 of the student centers...there are 2.
The main entrance. All entrances are gated...A mama's dream!!!
The soccer field
The High Point Panthers
Sam and I enjoying Maleficent while Julia attended the soccer ID camp.
Camp went really well and she was asked to come back in August! She scored 2 goals during the game!!!
We did more self guided tours through a few schools on the way home. She is doing another ID camp and an official guided tour of another college later this summer. It is really kinda fun. Things sure have changed since I went to college years and years ago and the process is much more involved. I did not have a good college experience so I want to make sure my kids choose the right place for them and the right major. I am thinking by the time Lulu gets through school... I will just suggest the mail order degree!
