    Come with an open heart and an open mind. Embrace Houghton's unique style of community life. Small school? Yes. Small town? Yes again. This is not the college experience that you see on TV. This is something better. This is life-changing. Come prepared to give: the more you are willing to give, the more you will get back. The people you meet here, the classes you take� they can change your life.
