The Huntsman Program not only offers a unique education integrating language, the liberal arts, and business, but students also enjoy the benefits of a small, supportive community that many describe as a “home away from home” and a large, vibrant Ivy-League university full of opportunities at their fingertips. Students often say the sense of community within the program, beginning with the living/learning community in the first year, is one of the most beneficial aspects of the program. All Huntsman freshmen live together on the third floor of Kings Court/English College House, where they develop lifelong bonds between students from diverse backgrounds, in an environment that encourages them to practice their intercultural and linguistic skills on a daily basis.

During the required Study Abroad semester, students gain global awareness as they live abroad for a semester and apply their advanced language and area studies training to real life and classroom settings.
Living and Learning Community
