HIGH POINT, N.C. -- High Point University is ready to get started on a new facility for students preparing to enter the real world.
University officials broke ground on the Center for Student Success during a Fall Family Weekend event Saturday.
The Center for Student Success, a $16 million, 40,000-square foot facility, is set to open next year.
Students will be able to use the center to prepare for job interviews, search for career development opportunities and pick up new job skills.
Several university departments will soon call the Center for Student Success home. The list of offices includes the Office of Career and Internship Services, the Office of Study Abroad, the Office of Undergraduate Research, the Center for Entrepreneurship, Service Learning, and the Freshman Success Program, among others.
Parents of current HPU students will provide the funds for the building, which will be located on Fifth Street.
