Huntingdon College (Ala.) Adding Men's Lacrosse

West said the College is exploring options for partnerships as well as funding to build facilities to accommodate the new sports. "All options are being explored right now. We know of good facilities already available in the area, and have also formed a special committee of the Board of Trustees to explore this matter and other matters related to future growth in both the athletic and academic programs of the College. This is a particularly exciting time to be at Huntingdon College."

Huntingdon has experienced unprecedented growth in the student population in recent years. Since 2002, overall enrollment has grown by more than 50%. During the past eight years, the College has reinstituted academic majors in accounting, elementary education, religion, Christian education, physical education, music education, and biology education, and added a major in youth ministry and a worship leadership concentration in the music major.

In addition to men's and women's cross country, the College has added football, men's tennis, and women's golf, as well as marching band, jazz band, pep band, concert band, and a dance team during the same time period. The growth has enabled the College to operate with no tuition increases for the past two years.

Grounded in the Judeo-Christian tradition of the United Methodist Church, Huntingdon 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.

The College offers The Huntingdon Plan, components of which include laptop computers provided for full-time students, theirs to keep at graduation; travel-study, internships, and service learning opportunities; an environment of small classes and personal attention to students' needs; and a broad-based liberal arts curriculum that prepares students to enter multiple career paths. Placement rates into graduate and professional schools well exceed national averages.
