The people here are amazing! Everyone is super friendly and accepting. The professors care about your life, and they want to see you succeed academically. The school is set on a beautiful campus full of trees with a small lake at the epicenter. During the fall when the leaves change color the campus is just so nice to walk through. I highly recommend this place!

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!
