A Long and Storied Tradition
The Oracle. Baccalaureate. United Methodist connections. The Miss Huntingdon Pageant. The Red Lady Run. A Service of Lessons and Carols. These are just a few of the many traditions that have built Huntingdon’s history. Traditions are events, moments, and shared experiences: they remind us of a long and well-lived past and promise a future when the College is just as vital and just as loved as it is in the present. When you’re part of Huntingdon, you’re part of a long and storied tradition.
Enriching the Mind, Heart, and Spirit
Huntingdon College offers annual events that support the life of the mind, the heart, and the spirit. Along with scholarly, arts, athletic, social, and service activities, Huntingdon’s annual events have established traditions that bring people together and celebrate the relationships possible when students can know and be known.
