Undecided? HU’s Got You.

Huntington University offers over 70 academic pathways for students to embark on. With so many options, incoming students may feel outside pressure to choose a major without actually wanting to pursue a career in that field.

Living Out Your Faith at HU

If you asked me four years ago if I thought going to a Christian university would push me to become stronger in my faith, I would have told you the choice was too safe. I had so many doubts, but this one was the loudest: If I was surrounded by like-minded people and consistent messages of faith, would I be prepared to live in the “real world” when I graduated?

More Than Marketing

The Spirit of a Forester language clarifies who we are and guides who we become. Like the creeds of our Christian tradition, the Spirit of a Forester was our very intentional effort to define what we believe. Our creed has a direct impact on our everyday operations in a way that goes beyond the foundational purpose of our mission statement, beyond any marketing campaign.

What’s Important: University Reputation

Your relationship with your alma mater has the potential to be an ongoing relationship that lasts the rest of your life. As you would in other potentially lifelong relationships, you want to determine your compatibility with the schools you are considering.

What’s Important: Geographic Location & Grounds

When geographic location is one of your top priorities, you are likely going to pick a school based on where it is situated. How close (or far) do you want to be from home? Will you do your best work in the heart of a bustling city or in the close-knit community of a college town?

What’s Important: Value

When value and cost are your priorities for your college experience, you want to see the numbers. You want to know: What is the investment — of time, of finances, and of energy — that you will need to make to complete your education? You want to hear the stories of what alumni have done before you.

What’s Important: Community & Interconnectedness

When community and interconnectedness are your top priorities, you want to find a university that has the right feel. People who value community and interconnectedness often come away from a campus visit saying something like, “When I stepped on campus, I just knew this was the place for me.”
