The success of every student is the focus of everything we do.

  • Students Sponsor Community Yard Sale for Haitian Relief: Do you have some items in your home, room, or closet that you have previously loved but no longer need? Consider donating them to the Huntingdon College Haiti Relief Yard Sale. Donations will be accepted at the Hut the week of January 25–29 (this week). The sale will be Saturday, February 13, 8:30–11:00 a.m. in Cloverdale front yard. Questions? Contact Brandy Freeman ’13 or Brian Smith ’94, chaplain and director of community service. Sale proceeds will be donated to the United Methodist Committee on Relief, 100% of which will go toward Haitian relief efforts. Items not sold will be donated to Goodwill or another local charity. (Meanwhile, $224 has been collected so far in the yellow buckets for Haiti Relief peppered around campus--thanks to all who have donated!)
  • ADCP Chips in for Haitian Relief: The Baldwin County campus of the Adult Degree Completion Program is holding its own fund-raiser for Haitian relief by selling bracelets of the Live Strong variety in Huntingdon red that say “Hawks for Haiti.” Faculty and students may purchase them for $5 each. Royal blue bracelets with the words “Hope for Haiti” and “Hearts in Unity” may be purchased by the public for $10 each. Donations are going to Doctors without Borders. A supply of these bracelets will be available through Huntingdon Campus Ministries, with profits benefiting the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR).
  • Cloverdale Moves Continue: The Office of Student Financial Services has moved from the Cloverdale Campus to Wilson Center on the main campus. The Registrar’s Office and Business Office will move next week. Thank you for your understanding if you experience delays in processing during this time of transition. Moves already completed: Jane Williams’ office (college travel and event planning) is now in Wilson 115, and the Office of Institutional Assessment and Compliance is in the Registrar’s Office side of the new office space in Wilson (which, if you haven’t seen yet, you ought to check out—it’s great!).
  • Attention Pre-Professional Students: Huntingdon’s Pre-Health Professions Committee will hold its first meeting Wednesday, January 27, 11:45 a.m. in Stallworth Dining Room, Russell Dining Hall. All pre-professional students are required to attend. For more information, contact Dr. Steven Guthrie, assistant professor of biology.
  • CCV Presents Fashion Show and Career Fair: The models have been selected and the carpet is ready to be unfurled for the Center for Career and Vocation Fashion Show, Monday, February 8, 7:00–8:00 p.m. in Ligon Chapel. Models elected by their peers in the junior and senior classes will be dressed by Banana Republic and show their best (or worst) in four categories: Interview, Business Professional, Business Casual, and What Not to Wear. Two days later, put your new fashion knowledge to the test at the CCV Spring Career Fair, Wednesday, February 10, 11:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m. in Russell Dining Hall.
  • Alumnus Brings Birmingham Show to Huntingdon Stage for One Night Only: The Montgomery community will have the chance to see “Bully! An Adventure with Teddy Roosevelt,” the award-winning and highly acclaimed one-man play about the life of the nation’s 26th president, thanks to a generous gift from Huntingdon alumnus and trustee Herb Patterson ’71. Patterson is funding a one-night-only performance of the production, which stars Alan Gardner of City Equity Theatre (Birmingham), Tuesday, February 16, at 7:00 p.m. in Ligon Chapel. The performance is free and open to the public. “Bully!” enjoyed a successful seven-performance run at the Virginia Samford Theatre, Birmingham, in November.
  • Planning for a Jam: CloverJam 2010 is coming the evening of Saturday, April 10, and the Office of Student Life is seeking student input on the band you would most want to invite this year. The list is lengthy: Government Mule, Vertical Horizons, Jars of Clay, Drivin’ ’n Cryin’, Candlebox, Corey Smith, Cracker, Everlast, Colbie Caillat, Cowboy Mouth, Little Feat, Lonestar, The Machine, Papa Roach, Restless Heart, Rooney, Squirrel Nut Zippers, The Wailers, Tower of Power, Arrested Development, BoomBox, Dave Barnes, De La Soul, Drive by Truckers, Edwin McCain, Finger Eleven, Soul Asylum, and The Bellamy Brothers. Register your vote now with an email to Dean of Students Frank Parsons. The event is a benefit for the Muscular Dystrophy Association in the name of Hayden’s Heroes and our own Hayden Fielder, grandson of Tech Team director Rick Bruner.
  • Internship Interest Surges: Interest in serving in internships is on the rise among students, as it should be. There is perhaps no better way for students to learn what they do or do not like to do and where their talents may meet the world’s needs. This semester, Huntingdon interns are serving at or for Rehab Associates, Cain’s Chapel UMC, East Alabama Medical Center, Impact Alabama, American Cancer Society, David Kahn Realty, Jenkins Brick Co., Dr. Matt Holley, and Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences, among other places. To learn more about internships, see the CCV pages on the Huntingdon Web site.
