  • The Hobbs Honors Program, the Business Club, the Accounting Club, Sigma Beta Delta business honorary, and other student organizations add depth to your studies and build your connections both inside and outside the classroom.
  • Huntingdon’s Center for Career and Vocation’s annual Meet the Firms event brings accounting firms to campus to talk with and actively recruit Huntingdon Accounting majors, and the annual Business Networking Luncheon connects students with Huntingdon alumni who are business professionals.
