C - 12/22/2020

Do not attend this school. Academically, it's completely fine. Living on campus is completely absurd. Here's a list: - You pay extremely high costs for living in archaic dorms, which often have issues with air conditioning and water quality. - You pay for overpriced meals that will either give you the runs, or is too gross to eat. - You pay for an administration that pretends to care about you, but once you attend are obviously just trying to make money. - You pay to be under strict student rules, which upon breaking results in pricey fines (Unless you're an athlete, then you just get away with anything) - You are required to go to a set number of chapels each semester, and are subject to fines ($100 per chapel) if you do not attend enough. - COVID policies that require students who are sick to quarantine inside dorms without air conditioning, and be treated like prisoners and erased from the world as though being hidden, while mask wearing is "required" even though there's nobody enforcing it. -

Amber - 01/23/2020

I am very glad that I chose to attend Huntington University as well as be a part of their athletic program. Class sizes are perfect for me and anyone who would prefer to have the chance to connect with their professors on a good level and relate to them. The dorms are very homey and I feel extremely safe while living on campus. There is not one thing I can say that I dislike about my university.

Morgan - 06/21/2019

Although when I signed up for a student group day on campus. Upon my arrival, no one was at the front desk to greet me. At first I thought maybe I had made a mistake. It was like to college was closed. The day was supposed to start at 12:30. I got there right at 12:30 pm. I walked around for about 10 minutes, almost leaving when finally some one came and said hello. So, it was awkward at first. After the initial uneasiness, thing got rolling and I received a personal tour and day on campus. As I was the only student who signed up for that day. It was really great! Huntington University is a beautiful wooded campus. The staff and admissions people are absolutely top notch compared to other colleges I have visited. I really liked it. Though I have a couple other colleges to visit. I have moved Huntington up to 1st on my list.

Rebecca - 12/22/2018

I love Huntington University with every fiber of my body. The thing that makes it so special is the relationships that are formed at school. Not only do we get to know our peers well, but we also have the privilege of getting to know our professors very well. It is a very Christ-centered campus, and has helped me to grow in my faith tremendously. It greatly lives up to its mission statement: Christ. Scholarship. Service. I know that these four years spent at Huntington University will be the best four years of my life.

  7. Describe the students at your school.

    Unfortunately many of the students in my school are fairly immature. What I mean by this is that they have been pampered by parents for so long and so much that they have a large sense of self-entitlement and very little in the way of independent thinking. However, most of them, to an extent, are very nice, social, and do put some level of work into the classes that they care about. They are very volunteer-centric. They tend to complain alot about workloads and professors. When in classes that they like, they tend to focus and do well.

  9. What's unique about your campus?

    I enjoy the fact that, though there is an unfortunately high rate of high school mentality, there are more mature individuals who actually want to learn on this campus. I also love the professors, because a good number of them are very enthusiastic about what they teach, and they really do want the students to learn and succeed. I also like that volunteering is made very easy on this campus. The dorms are pretty nice, which is always a plus, and we have pretty good internet access, which is obviously a must for many students.

  14. What are the academics like at your school?

    Most people tell you that college takes a lot of work, and its true to some extent. I think that at HU, the amount of work you do depends on what you major in. If your a history major, you'll be in the library 24/7. If you're an art major, you'll be in the studios a lot. The professors are incredible. They bend over backwards to help you, and if you can't meet them during office hours, they'll arrange for a time that works for you.

  15. What are the most popular student activities/groups?

    The Student Senate and Student Activities Board are excellent. They are constantly coming up with events for students to take part in. This is good, considering that there isn't much to do in Huntington. The social life is great too. If there's no event going on, everyone just hangs out on campus and chills together. Open dorm nights are on the weekends, which allows for guys and girls to visit eachother's dorms.

  17. What is your overall opinion of this school?

    Huntington University is a small Christian college in the small town of Huntington, IN. If you're looking for a big party scene, this is not that kind of college. If you want something exciting to do, drive up to Fort Wayne 30 minutes north. You can walk from one side of campus the other in less than 10 minutes. HU is big enough that you don't know everyone, but small enough that your proffs know who are. The location took some getting used to. I'm from the east coast, so i'm used to having an ocean nearby, as well as lush, rolling green hills. Huntington and the surrounding areas are flat farmland; but again, it's simply different from what i'm used to.
