Life at Huntington University provides a wide range of co-curricular opportunities for learning and building relationships. Campus government, the fine arts, sports, and clubs are all available.
Campus student government is conducted through the Student Government Association (SGA). The President of the SGA serves as a member of the University’s Board of Trustees. Students also serve on most faculty and administrative committees.
Huntington University publishes two periodicals for which students have the opportunity to serve as editors, writers, managers, photographers, and reporters for these publications. The Huntingtonian is the University newspaper produced on a monthly basis by the editorial staff. Ictus is the annual literary magazine produced by the student members of Sigma Tau Delta.
Fine arts options for students invite participation in a wide variety of music, art, and theatre activities. Musical ensembles provide opportunities for both instrumental and vocal performers. Some ensembles focus on special musical styles, which may range from Renaissance to contemporary music. Music ministry through Christian service teams enables talented students to represent the University throughout the year. Drama and musical productions provide opportunity for expression in theatre under qualified coaching. Frequent photographic, painting, and sculpture exhibitions represent student work.
Clubs, classes, honor societies, student professional organizations, and residence hall groups provide a further range of activities. The Forester Lecture Series brings a variety of special speakers to campus. Frequent concerts, programs, recitals, and other musical events are presented through the Merillat Centre for the Arts and by the University Music Department. The Student Activities Board (SAB) regularly sponsors special entertainment with films, games, Christian contemporary music concerts, and special projects. A broad intramural sports program encourages active participation by all interested students. Multicultural Activities Council (MAC) encourages the community to explore how race, ethnicity, and multiculturalism impact our communities.
