What Students Are Saying

3.64 Average Rating
Visit Houghton College at least once to see what the community is like. The campus is beautiful and the students are welcoming.
Joel from Flanders, NY
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.
Hannah from Grand Junction, CO
Apply early. Also because of the price look for scholarships. If you email the financial workers they will be more than willing to help you find scholarships that apply directly to you.
David from Houghton, NY
The whole cost of college factor did play a major part of my decision in coming here. Don't be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone. God will always provide for you regardless of the circumstances and situation.
