What is your overall opinion of this school?

it is an amazing school that strives for students to grow in many different ways including spiritually, academically, and maturity. the students are all positive and love supporting one another. the professors are always available and invite students over for dinner even. its an amazing school, but is quite expensive.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Before I came to Houghton, I cried about coming. It wasn't my first choice---which was an in-state public university with an art school that could bring a art major to happy tears---but it was my wisest choice. While it is very expensive, the school also tries to help students be able to attend. For example, they're currently providing a $10,000 automatic scholarship to the upcoming class of 2022. The people are honestly what makes the school genuine. The people here are intentionally here. They know they could have gone somewhere else, but they came here. The student body as a whole is serious about their academics, serious about their faith. To think of leaving brings me to tears now.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I loved it! Everyone there is so nice and welcoming. Their sports teams are all welcoming and don't do it for themselves, they do it as a team. The classes are smaller so you get to get as much help whenever, and the professors have schedules of when you can meet them on their doors. Everything is all close to each other so it's not a bad walk to each class.

Houghton is a great school! The rigorous academics, tight-knit community, gorgeous surrounds, and faith-centered goals create a wonderful atmosphere. The professors are highly accessible, and the small class sizes make a great opportunity for students to bond and include everyone. Highly recommend!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Just don't go here. Seriously. If you are not a Christian Culture kid then please, please go to a regular college. Houghton is either a socially underdeveloped shelter, or a cliquey Christian high school, depending on how you want to approach it. Academically this school is fine, but nothing you can't get at another average regional college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Houghton College is a place that I know everyone will feel welcomed. The professors and counselors are always available and willing to help. The coaches take sports very seriously and will do anything to help a student improve. The facilities are beautiful, and the community is friendly and vibrant. I chose Houghton College because I know that I wont regret it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My home away from home. As an out-of-state student I really found a school where I was accepted and challenged to learn more and apply my knowledge. The Christian culture has changed my relationship with God and has been something that I have very much enjoyed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I find Houghton College to be a place where one learns, grows and is challenged by the community. I have made my best friends for life there, found my passion for my future career and learned so much about myself and the world. The professors are great, they are super personable and incredibly wise and helpful and the college is also incredibly safe and relaxed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really liked Houghton College until the dean of the music area told me that we as christians needed to fight back against people who call us bigots and racists. And we should focus on being more conservative. I'm not sure what he was talking about, but he sounded like he had some strong, radical opinions. My son has placed a deposit with Ithaca for the fall. The program seemed much stronger with no conservative radicals.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

My name is Jenna Munro and I am a current music education/vocal performance major at Houghton College. If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would tell myself to definitely work on note taking and better time management (not procrastinating on homework). I would tell myself as well that I can’t constantly be working on homework, that I do need to make time for myself and to go out and have some fun with friends. Another thing is that I would let myself know that I need to keep my priorities in order so that I can stay on task more easily. I would also like to have the chance to tell myself that my high school friends aren’t what defined me and that I’m not always going to have them around. One more thing that I would have liked to let myself know is that I can’t be so shy around people and that I have to go and make new friends.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I had known what my work load was going to look like and what types of classes i had in store for me.
