It's a great school that I'll be transferring to next semester.


Great family feel when you’re at Huntingdon college. It’s a smaller school so it is very easy to get to know all of your peers. School is very beautiful and prestigious to be a small private liberal arts college. Favorite part about attending Huntingdon was smaller class size, this allows you to really get to know your professor.


Great school just very expensive

  12. What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

    The administrators are not in tune with the students needs. They are too concerned about the colleges image and not concerned enough about what the student body needs. The school has a dry campus policy which would be fine but the school uses this to persecute students who deviate from this dry policy which hurts retention rate incredibly. The biggest problem with our school is the Provost, Sid Stubbs. He is not concerned at all with the students and is making it his goal to make it incredibly difficult to graduate.
