'High Point University continues to be dedicated to the enhancement of the campus and seeks to maintain a learning environment complimented by a diverse landscape. Our faculty, staff, students, and donors along with landscape designers, local garden clubs, scientists, and others joined together to make our dream of a campus arboretum a reality,' says Dr. Nido Qubein, president of HPU. 'HPU wants to ensure that our campus will be protected, enhanced, and stand as a symbol of our commitment to nurture the gifts of nature. The Arboretum and Botanical Gardens are significant and highly visible residents of the High Point University campus while greatly impacting the quality of life of our campus and community.'
