William Peace University Welcomes Huntingdon College And Covenant College To USA South Conference

By on May 21, 2012 11:29 pm

Four-Year Baccalaureate University Recognizes Two New Schools Set To Join Athletic Conference In The 2013-2014 Academic Year  

 

RALEIGH, N.C. – William Peace University (http://www.peace.edu), a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, welcomes Huntingdon College and Covenant College as fellow members in the USA South Athletic Conference in the 2013-2014 academic year, bringing an anticipated total number of 13 members to the NCAA Division III conference. The two colleges are part of the USA South’s expansion to include member institutions outside of North Carolina and Virginia, with Huntingdon located at Montgomery, Ala., and Covenant based in Lookout Mountain, Ga. Both schools presently compete as members of the Great South Athletic Conference.

 

Huntingdon College has a 158-year commitment to nurturing growth in faith, wisdom and service and to graduating individuals prepared to succeed in a rapidly changing world. The words, "Faith, Wisdom, Service," appear on its logo, encapsulating the college’s motto, "Enter to grow in wisdom; go forth to apply wisdom in service," which is engraved in stone above the door of Huntingdon’s historic Flowers Hall. Huntingdon offers nine men’s sports (baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, lacrosse, soccer, tennis, and track and field) and nine women’s sports (basketball, cross country, golf, lacrosse, soccer, softball, tennis, volleyball, and track and field).

 

Established in 1955, Covenant College is a Christian liberal arts college that exists to explore and express the preeminence of Jesus Christ in all things. Covenant’s Statement of Purpose articulates this aim in terms of three goals for Covenant College in all its efforts: to build a community of people responding to their identity in Christ, to develop programs designed and operated from a biblical frame of reference, and to provide educational experiences which foster lifelong and Christ-honoring service. The school offers six men’s sports (baseball, basketball, cross country, golf, soccer and tennis) and seven women’s sports (basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, tennis and volleyball).

 

"William Peace University is excited to welcome Huntingdon College and Covenant College as the newest members of the NCAA Division III USA South Athletic Conference and wishes them luck as we look forward to competing against them in many sports by fall 2013," said Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., president of William Peace University. "Both institutions have rich traditions of developing their students academically and athletically, and their additions to the conference will enhance its reputation as one of the finest in Division III athletics."
