Fun Facts

  • In 2011, High Point University purchased an entire mall—Oak Hollow Mall in High Point, North Carolina.
  • Kester International Promenade at High Point University is home to many incredible sculptures of historical figures, including Mother Teresa, Leonardo DaVinci, Sacajawea, and Ludwig van Beethoven. And since they're all plopped down on benches, you can take a seat (and a selfie) next to them!
