Lead change on campus

Hult Student Association

Lead change on campus

Represent your class by running for the Hult Student Association. Elected by fellow students, these representatives play a critical role in the education experience at Hult. They advocate on behalf of other students' specific issues, as well as the wider community. This is a group that has the power to influence school-wide decisions and call for change on campus. It’s also a lot of fun.

Be social and live well

Outside of the classroom, social activities give you a break from your studies and a chance to meet and mingle with your classmates from around the world. Your campus events calendar will be filled with cultural exhibitions, holiday get-togethers, trips to top local attractions, and volunteer opportunities. Large-scale all-campus events like the Hult’s Got Talent show and the annual boat cruise on San Francisco Bay will be some of your best memories. To help you stay healthy and happy during your busy year, you’ll also have access to ongoing Health and Wellness resources and events.

Get to know the Bay Area and beyond

Yosemite National Park

Get to know the Bay Area and beyond

Studying in San Francisco gives you a chance to discover Northern California’s beautiful coast, mountains, parks, and getaways. Drive a few hours in any direction from the city, and you’ll be able to ski the resorts surrounding Lake Tahoe, sip wine in the vineyards of Napa Valley, explore Yosemite National Park, or surf and stroll in Santa Cruz. Our Student Services team organizes Hult student group trips to many of these places and more throughout the year.

The Hult Prize

All our students are encouraged to compete in the Hult Prize, the world’s largest student entrepreneurship competition and movement for social good. Founded by a Hult alumnus, funded by the Hult family, and in partnership with former U.S. president Bill Clinton, teams of students from all over the world compete to win USD1 million of investment in their idea that will change the world for the better. It’s a big deal.
