The school was founded as High Point College by the United Methodist Church in 1924, it achieved university status in 1991. The 300 acre campus features traditional collegiate red brick architecture, much green space and tree lined walkways. The venerable Roberts Hall, the first construction at the school’s founding, dates to 1924 and serves as the Administration building. This landmark building with its clock tower are part of the school’s logo. The NC Piedmont region, whose name literally means “foothills” is rich in cultural American history. Winston Salem hosts “Old Salem” as a living history museum similar in scope (but smaller in size) to Colonial Williamsburg. It is an active and growing area with much to offer.
