    Houghton helped to sabe my life. I transferred from a terrible and desperate situation, and for awhile [at Houghton] I was only meeting encouraging and loving people who challenged me to become the best me, and to grow in spite of everything. Also, my relationship with Chrust was completely turned upside down in the best way as my original opinions were challenged and the way in which I viewed the world was broadened.

    Warning: do not come to this school if you are not prepared to be challenged. Houghton College will stretch you academically and spiritually in ways you may not have expected� if you are willing. Are you willing?

    Houghton College is a small-town, Christian college, surrounded by an outstanding community. I felt the warmth of people's hearts the first time I set foot on campus. The experience thus far is truly unremarkable and well worth it!

    Houghton College is a small, friendly campus where you get to know your professors and peers. It is a Christian campus which means you have to attend chapel each week, and there are numerous Christian activities going on during the week. The campus is in a very, very small town in Western NY.

    Academically Successful while reaching limits that you didn't know you could reach. Financially high for an average adult that has no savings or source for obtaining additional funding other than outside sources.

    Houghton is a great place to make amazing friends and learn from professors that have a passion both for their subjects and for their students. It's a safe, fun environment in which to become the person you were created to be. Plus we have a nerf club, of which I'm the secretary.... it rocks!

    Houghton gives off a sense of maturity. Students here respect what's yours, whether you choose to never lock you dorm room door, or to leave your jacket and books lying in the lounge while you eat dinner. And you rarely go through a day without someone holding a door open for you, and you reciprocating the favor.
