These days are designed to provide you with an overall first-introduction to Houghton College.

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.
