Montgomery, Ala. – Every student at Huntingdon has a unique daily routine, a class schedule that varies from semester to semester, and their own ways they contribute to the life of the College outside of the classroom. Over the coming weeks, we’ll ask a number of Huntingdon students to journal a day in their life at Huntingdon to highlight the Huntingdon experience and to showcase campus life.
Myles Johnson ’26 is a sophomore from Florence, Alabama, majoring in history with plans to obtain certification in secondary education. He shares his day in the life of a Hawk on Monday, February 5.
“At 7:00, my alarm went off and I took a quick shower to wake myself up. I swung by the dining hall for breakfast before doing a final review for my make-up Ancient Greece exam. At 9:15, I headed over to Dr. Witcher’s office to take the test that covered Athens, Corinth and Sparta. My hand still hurts from all of that writing!
I walked back to my room in Trimble Hall at 10:30 and scrolled through Tik Tok to relax a little after the exam. I had an 11:00 Torah class in Flowers Hall with Dr. Abernethy. The topic of today’s class was the promises that God made to Abraham. I then met my basketball teammates in the Tomberlin Fitness Center for a 12:15 lift with Coach Willis. Today we worked mostly on arms and core. I walked back to the dining hall after the lift with some of the guys and grabbed a turkey sandwich from Miss Ruby and a couple of slices of pizza. I took a shower and grabbed a nap.
At 3:00, I headed back to Flowers Hall for my last class of the day with Dr. Ball. It’s a medieval Europe course and we discussed the Germans and the rise of the barbarians. At 4:15, I sprinted over to Roland Arena for basketball practice. We worked to prepare for our home games this weekend versus Piedmont and Covenant. At 6:45, we were done with practice, and a couple of my friends went with me to Moe’s for Moe’s Monday. I got a burrito and you already know I got some queso, too!
We got back to campus around 8:00. I took my last shower for the day and did some reading and studying for my Tuesday classes. I was done with homework by about 9:30 and I sat around the dorm with some of my roommates playing 2k and UFC for the rest of the night. I went to my room at about 11:00 and fell asleep listening to music and watching Tik Tok. It was a full Monday!”
