Pursue Your Passions

Hickory Campus


Discover everything our historic and dynamic campus has to offer.

Between its quaint small town feeling and being a commutable drive from major cities, Hickory is truly the best of both worlds. You'll have access to everything from internships and community service to a wealth of outdoor recreation opportunities in the foothills of Western North Carolina.
