Traditions

   

Honor Code Signing Ceremony

The High Point University Honor Code was adopted by the, Administrative Council, faculty, students and Board of Trustees in a general referendum on April 17, 1997.  When a student accepts an offer of admission from High Point University, they in turn are agreeing to abide by the University Honor Code.  Take a photo as you sign the honor code with the rest of your classmates!

Touch of Life

This tradition involves placing your hands in the David R. Hayworth Park waterfall as a symbol of good luck for academic and personal success during the year.

Derby Day

The first Saturday after classes begin marks the HPU tradition known as Derby Day!  This field day style event held on the Kester International Promenade includes games ranging from tug-of-war and volleyball to water slides, obstacle courses and more.  Oh, and don't forget to try some Derby Day corn!

The Gratitude Project

This six-year long tradition organized by the Student Alumni Council gives members of the HPU family an opportunity to share what they are thankful for and express their appreciation during the Thanksgiving season every year. 

Purple Friday

Whether your on campus, or in California, Friday is HPU Purple Friday!  Proudly procalim your HPU pride and school spirit by wearing our school colors while you work and play!
