HU gives all its students the chance to sharpen their leadership skills through groups such the Student Government, which is comprised of the Senate and Executive Board members; the Greek Governing Board, which oversees fraternities and sororities; or through positions in the residence halls, such as Resident Advisor. At Husson, the goal is for every student to reach his or her potential not only academically, but as a successful, contributing, and interdependent citizen of society.

Students who prefer recreational pursuits over team sports can join group or individual activities ranging from whitewater rafting and hiking trips to aerobics and Tai Chi.
On-campus housing choices at Husson accommodate a variety of students. There are four residence halls, three of which are traditional shared or private dorms; the other is the new Darling Learning Center, which features suite-style living space for up to four residents per unit. All of the residence halls are located adjacent to one another and in close proximity to the main academic building. Whether you live in one of the three traditional residence halls or in the new Darling Learning Center, on campus living fosters individual development and enhances your connection to the residential community and the university.
