Huntingdon Invites Families to Host Day

Montgomery, Ala.—The Huntingdon College Office of Admission will offer its first Host Day event of the 2009–10 academic year, Saturday, September 26. Prospective students and families are invited to attend this free event. Huntingdon Host Days are offered from 8:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the College’s historic main building, Flowers Hall. During Host Days, prospective students and families may tour the campus, meet with Huntingdon faculty, staff, coaches, and students, and learn more about the admission and financial aid processes at Huntingdon College.

The September 26 Host Day coincides with the College’s second home football game of the 2009 season. Families are invited as guests of the College to stay for the football game at W. James Samford Jr. Stadium, across the street from the main campus. The Huntingdon Hawks face Louisiana College at 1:00 p.m. For more information or reservations, contact the Office of Admission at (334) 833-4497, 800-763-0313, or

Subsequent Host Day events will be offered Saturday, October 31, 2009, and Saturday, March 6, 2010. Reservations for these events may be made by calling the numbers above.

The fall 2009 class of more than 300 new students represents a sixth consecutive year of enrollment growth at the College, which was notified last month of its inclusion in the latest edition of the Princeton Review’s “America’s Best Colleges: Region by Region.”

Huntingdon College, grounded in the Judeo-Christian tradition of the United Methodist Church, is committed to nurturing growth in faith, wisdom, and service and to graduating individuals prepared to succeed in a rapidly changing world. Founded in 1854, Huntingdon is a coeducational liberal arts college. Huntingdon students benefit from access to technology, with a laptop computer provided for each full-time student, theirs to keep at graduation; from travel-study, internships, and service learning opportunities; from an environment of small classes and personal attention to students’ needs; and from a broad-based liberal arts curriculum that sharpens communication and critical thinking skills. Placement rates into graduate and professional schools are, in most cases, more than twice the national averages.
