Settle In

full orientation groupOrientation eases you into college life and into Huntingdon College.

During Orientation, students meet in groups led by Orientation Leaders (OLs), who are Huntingdon upperclassmen. Each OL’s main goal is to welcome incoming students into the Huntingdon family and to assist in the college transition of the newest Hawks. At the same time, parents attend sessions designed just for them. There is no cost to attend an orientation session.
