Student Life

Feeling like a part of something bigger than yourself is paramount to experiencing what college has to offer.

At Harford, we encourage students to engage and connect with all aspects of campus in a way that enriches their own life as well as the lives of others.

Harford provides a robust student life and we encourage you to take advantage of the many opportunities available to connect with each other and with the larger College community. We offer an inclusive culture where students learn about themselves and others through experiences beyond the classroom. Whether you choose travel, volunteer, social, athletic, leadership or cultural activities, you're sure to meet new people, have some fun, and learn a little along the way.


HARFORD OFFERS ALMOST 30 REGISTERED STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS. Which one interests you? Check out all of Harford's clubs, activities, trips, and volunteer opportunities by downloading our events app called Presence.


The College Store

Need a textbook? How about some Harford Fighting Owls spirit wear or a gift to show off your Harford pride? The College Store, located in the lower level of the Student Center, is the go-to place for everything Harford. They offer online and in person ordering and provide convenient hours to assist you.
