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.

Huntingdon College offers annual events that support the life of the mind, the heart, and the spirit.
