Orientation is a dynamic program designed to guide you through your transition into college life, in general, and Huntingdon College, in particular. The program provides an opportunity for students to connect with other incoming students, meet upperclassmen as mentors, interact with faculty and staff, register for fall classes and receive more information about academics and student life at Huntingdon. A separate program for parents is held simultaneously at each session to better acquaint parents with College services and resources.
At Orientation, students meet in groups led by Orientation Leaders—select sophomores, juniors, and seniors who have enthusiasm and knowledge and want to share both with you. These students are chosen for their strong leadership abilities, their consistent character, and their love for Huntingdon. Their main goal is to welcome incoming students into the Huntingdon family and to assist in the transition of the newest Hawks.
