Connecting to Houghton College

Friday, May 23, 2014
Friday, May 30, 2014

Strong connections between new students and the college community are foundational for success in and outside of the classroom. At Houghton, we have created a program to facilitate these important connections called Transitions 101: Connecting to Houghton.

This one-day program will prove invaluable in helping students (and parents) make the transition to Houghton.

If you submit your enrollment deposit, registration form and your course preference form by the dates posted below, you will be given your preliminary schedule on that day.

Monday, May 12 for the May 23 Transitions 101
Monday, May 19 for the May 30 Transitions 101
