Huntington University Reviews
I love the small class size and how connected I feel with my classmates and professors. One on one conversations with peers and professionals are vital to honing one’s craft, and that’s one of Huntington’s greatest strengths. While the food isn’t the greatest, there still is good community and resources for connection that make the campus homey, safe, and pleasant to live on. Also, as the the campus is small, the rooms are rather large and housing is very nice!
I loved the community all over. My first year experience was nothing like I expected, but was more than I could have asked for. The professors were so willing to get to know the students (and continue to be so willing), the upper classmen were wonderful to be around and really took the first year students under their wing. The food was pretty good at our Student Center, however not so much at the main dining area (the cookies were always fabulous though!). I truly enjoyed all of the opportunities there were to get involved and get to know your peers. I wasn't too overwhelmed with what to join because they made it clear what was going to happen. I was also able to obtain a job on campus while keeping my grades up. Overall, the experience has been wonderful and I'm excited to attend there again in the fall!
The education at Huntington University is truly spectacular. Although more expensive due to it being a private university, the cost was more that worth the level of education I received here. It is hard to find a department here that does not have at least one if not many beloved and invested professors that help change students lives for the better. My greatest issue with the institution is that it does not seem like the students are heard by the administration when they express their wants and needs. This means that the community heavily suffers and many students leave because of rules and regulations that are only supported by a small group of officials whom these rules to not affect. College is more than academics and in the case of Huntington, religious vision. Huntington lacks the freedom to be a little crazy and learn from it. The expectations and rules of the community can make students feel like small children with how they are treated.
