Visiting Houghton

There’s nothing like an up-close-and-personal trip to our campus in Western New York to help you determine if Houghton is the right fit for you.


Think "Open House." These days are designed to provide you with an overall first-introduction to Houghton College. If you are thinking about visiting for the first time, an Encounter Day is an excellent choice.

Spring Encounter Day:

  • Monday, April 13, 2015

Summer Encounter Days:

  • Friday, July 10, 2015
  • Monday, August 17, 2015

More Info



An Individual Visit is the ideal choice for students and parents who prefer one-on-one interaction and who have specific requests as to what they would (and would not) like to do during their time on campus. Please keep in mind that an Individual Visit can be scheduled on the same day as an Opportunity Day.

More info


Throughout the academic year, we offer special visit days centered around certain campus events or academic areas. Whether your first introduction to Houghton or your fifth, these special days are a great opportunity to more deeply experience Houghton College.
