    Please understand: college is so expensive that the figures start to sound like monopoly money. But you are not going to find a better deal on a private, liberal arts school. The opportunities that you will find at Houghton are astonishing considering the size and location of the school. And check out some of the figures: Houghton students nearly all move on to grad school or find a job within a very short time after graduation.

    Seriously, I love Houghton College! But just a tip from someone who has gone through the selection process. If you're not in love with the campus, keep searching. Your perfect school, the place you belong, is out there somewhere! Don't settle!

    The PACE program is definitely the Bang for the Buck. Due to its accelerated pace and class structure while also including the books as well.
