Huntingdon College

Huntingdon College was established on February 2, 1854 as the Tuskegee Female College. Its name was changed to Alabama Conference Female College in 1872. In 1910, its campus was moved to Montgomery, and the college was renamed the Woman's College of Alabama. It became a coeducational institute in 1934, and was given its current name the following year. The school's campus is spread across 71 acres of land in Montgomery, Alabama.

Huntingdon College offers academic programs in subjects like art, biology, mathematics, history, communication studies, language and literature, psychology, sports studies, and teacher education. Several music programs are offered through the Huntingdon Academy of Music as well.

Huntingdon College's athletics teams are known as the Hawks, and participate in softball, baseball, basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, tennis, football, and volleyball. The school is a member of the Great South Athletic Conference, NCAA Division III, and the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.
