2013–2014 Huntingdon Ambassadors

College service groups provide service to the Huntingdon campus and community.

The Black Student Union (BSU) is one of the most active and involved groups on campus, hosting the annual BSU Poetry Slam and the Black History Month art show in Seay Twins Gallery, among other programs.

The Campus Activities Board plans and coordinates student activities, entertainment, and programming for the Huntingdon student body.  Members are selected after an application process in the spring coordinated by the Office of Student Life—Student Involvement, and serve for the calendar year, January through December.

The Commuter Student Organization (CSO) provides camaraderie and connections for students who live off-campus.  Special activities and events are coordinated through the Office of Student Life.  This group is open to all commuters.

Freshman Forum, the leadership group in the Student Government Association for first-year students, plans a number of events for first-year students and for the entire student body annually.  Freshman Forum leaders include a president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer.

Huntingdon Ambassadors are exemplary Huntingdon students selected to serve as liaisons between the Department of College and Alumni Relations, alumni, the student body, and the community. These young men and women also make contact with the churches of the Alabama-West Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church. A new group of students is chosen each year, with the term of one year of service. For more information, contact the Office of College and Alumni Relations at (334) 833-4563 or alumni@hawks.huntingdon.edu.

Huntingdon Hosts promote pride in the College and provide services during College social functions with visitors, students, alumni, and friends. Primarily, this organization conducts campus tours and assists visitors and prospective students and families at Huntingdon, conveying the high standards and congeniality that exist on the campus. For more information, contact the Office of Admission at (334) 833-4497 or admiss@hawks.huntingdon.edu.

The International Student Association (ISA) is open to all students who are interested in international issues, travel, culture, and other aspects of world citizenship.

Orientation Skit Night

Orientation Skit Night, Orientation Leadership Team

The Orientation Leadership Team is comprised of sophomores, juniors, and seniors who assist with New Student Orientation. These students are carefully selected and trained to serve as resources and role models as they function to support first-year students experiencing the transition into the Huntingdon family. Applications become available in the winter and are coordinated through the Office of Student Life—Student Involvement.  OLs serve  for the following spring and summer after selection.

Resident Assistants are part of the Residence Life staff.  These are paid positions filled after a careful application process.  Comprehensive training prepares RAs to facilitate safe, lively, engaging and family-like living for campus residents.  For more information, contact the Office of Student Life—Residence Life.

The Student Alumni Association was formed in 2012–2013 by two cheerleaders who wanted to cheer for the whole college and not just the athletic teams.  Join!  See the Office of College and Alumni Relations.
