The Huntsman Student Board serves as an instrument for greater student participation and as a forum for students to voice their opinions about issues of concern to them. Student Board members frequently organize panel discussions on subjects such as study abroad, internships and recruiting. They also facilitate informal mentoring between upper- and underclassmen in the Program.

Student BoardThe Student Board also works to build a sense of community through social events such as pizza parties and coffee hours. In the past they’ve organized trivia nights, karaoke and trips to Phillies games. They even coordinated an all-Huntsman team for this year’s Relay for Life. Such activities help to maintain the close ties formed between Huntsman students during their freshman year, even after they spread out across campus and across the world during their semester abroad.

The Student Board consists of twelve members, four of whom are selected by the current members and eight of whom are elected by their peers.
