Our community is rich with history and a kind of energy that is hard to describe unless you experience it yourself. Professors and staff become mentors and friends. Our "smallness" allows for a special kind of campus affinity - a feeling of belonging held by all. Our community is truly relational; you'll leave here with lifelong friends and a lifetime home.
As part of our ongoing transition to NCAA Division III, we have joined the highly respected Empire 8 Conference. Let your competitive side our with our expanding slate of varsity teams, or try a club sport or intramurals. Experience the excitement of our up-and-coming multi-sport complex, brand-new-turf facility, and freshly hollowed baseball and softball arenas.

"Houghton has changed how I think about the idea of community. How people treat each other and work together at Houghton is truly rare - and I'm glad to be a part of it. Houghton also has a peace and calmness that has proven very meaningful in my own life."
