Arbor Day

Cottrell Hall Amphitheatre, April 25, 2019 from 4-5 p.m.

HPU is committed to preserving our environmental surroundings and sharing our appreciation for nature.  Each year, High Point University hosts an Arbor Day celebration on campus allowing members of our campus and community to engage in environmental stewardship and to celebrate with those who assist in enhancing our twenty-two campus gardens. 

The annual Arbor Day event will feature various speakers including HPU First Lady Mariana Qubein, who has spearheaded the transformation of the campus Arboretum and Botanical Gardens.  High Point University will also recognize their Tree Campus USA status, one of only twelve universities to achieve such status.  Tree Campus USA recognizes college campuses for promoting healthy urban forest management and engaging in environmental stewardship.
