Visiting Houghton

We invite you to visit Houghton, to experience all our campus has to offer. Just find a day that works for you—we’ll plan the essentials. If time and schedule permit, feel free to attend an on-campus concert or athletic event, get a glimpse of an art exhibit, drive up to our equestrian center, and explore as much of our unique surroundings as you desire.

Types of Visits

Highlander Preview Days

If you are thinking about visiting campus for the first time, then come join us for a Highlander Preview Day.  Tour campus, sit in on a class, interact with current students, engage with faculty, and catch a glimpse of what life at Houghton is like.

Individual Visits

Ideal if you prefer one-on-one interaction and have specific requests for what to do while on campus.

Special Visits

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.

Music Auditions

All applicants to the School of Music are required to prepare and present an entrance audition. These auditions are designed to give studio faculty opportunity to meet each applicant and to assess strengths and potential for success in collegiate music studies. 

The completed music application and two teacher recommendation forms must be submitted prior to scheduling an audition. We strongly recommend, for fullest consideration regarding admission & scholarship, that auditions be completed on or before March 4.
