Criminal Activity Off-campus
Huntingdon College enjoys and strives to maintain constructive, harmonious relationships with the residents of Montgomery and neighboring communities. Students must respect the rights and property of those who live and work in these communities. Students who violate this principle and/or whose behavior jeopardizes the College’s positive relationship with local communities may, if applicable, be subject to criminal/civil prosecution. The College will also take disciplinary action separately from any civil or criminal proceedings and will not be subject to challenge on the grounds that criminal charges involving the same off-campus incident are in litigation or have been dismissed.
