Huntington University is a Christian liberal arts college in Indiana

new international student orientation

August 21-25, 2013

Soon you will begin your college adventure at Huntington University. Our orientation program is designed to help you adjust academically, personally, socially, and spiritually. You will arrive several days before classes begin to settle in and have the opportunity to meet other students who have lived overseas like you. During this time we will provide activities and discussion that will address cultural adjustment, help you understand necessary policies and procedures while familiarizing you with the campus, college life and opportunities at HU.  And of course, we will have fun! 

Orientation is for ALL STUDENTS WHO HAVE LIVED OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES - Commuter and Transfer students too!
