The annual April and June Freshman Registration Weekends provide an opportunity for freshmen and their parents to become more familiar with university life by spending a weekend on campus. Students meet peers, faculty, staff and administrators and register for fall classes with an academic advisor.

New students and transfer students are expected to attend an orientation for several days before the beginning of the fall semester. This program assists new students in gaining a perspective on the Huntington University experience. The focus of orientation is to help students adjust academically, personally, socially and spiritually while familiarizing students with campus policies, procedures, services and opportunities.

Small groups meet for discussion and mutual support with an advising team of a faculty member and an upper-level class student during orientation. For all new students, this group also meets as a class for the first five weeks of the semester. The emphasis for the course is the integration of faith and learning.

An abbreviated orientation for new students is also conducted at the beginning of the spring semester.

Parents' Orientation for New Students

Sessions for parents and guardians are held during Registration Weekends to provide an opportunity for families of new students to learn more about the University and how the University seeks to partner with them in the education of their students.
