HPU voted most spoiled
High Point University was crowned the most spoiled college in the United States by now.msn.com.
In a light-hearted article that started with “We’re not jealous or anything, but...,” HPU beat out four colleges for the title including:
Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine
Smith College in Northampton, Mass.
Pepperdine University in Malibu, Calif.
Long Island University in Brookville, N.Y.
"When you are recognized along with Pepperdine University, Bowdoin College and Smith College, institutions that are founded on strong academic programs like High Point University, you are in good company," said Roger Coldfelter, vice president for communications at HPU.
"We believe that by modeling the values of generosity, gratitude, fellowship, joy and more, our students will inherit those values. This is a commitment to our belief in a holistic, values-based education."
So, what does the campus have that makes the students spoiled? In addition to their far-from-traditional cafeteria called The Cafe which offers tons of selection, HPU students also have eight other restaurant choices including a five-star steak house, bakery and bistro. The students also have access to fitness centers and the Extraordinare Cinema.
The msn.com article also says the campus has an ice cream truck, live music in the dining hall five nights a week, free snacks between classes and classical music playing on the promenade between passing periods.
The comprehensive fee to attend HPU is $39,800 for the 2012-2013 academic year for a student living on campus. This is assuming the student will choose a standard double room for housing. On-campus students can incur additional fees of up to $ $7,250 per year if they spring for the Luxury Deluxe living quarters in University Center or Centennial Square.
