You Belong

Houghton is known as a friendly place.  We hold doors for each other, actually make eye contact and say hello. And when someone asks how you are doing, they honestly want to hear the answer.

To us, community means more than just being friendly; it's how we do life together.

As a Houghton College student, you will be KNOWN— mentored, cared for, supported and guided— while you are here and into your future.

It's all about community
In Their Words
"Houghton is a place where there is so much potential for growth, both in faith and friendship. I have made wonderful Christian friends who have encouraged me, helped me, and prayed for me. Houghton has become my second home."

Hike the trails in the Houghton Forest or splash in the creek that runs through campus. Camp out in our lean-tos or learn how to ski or snowboard on our ski hill. Try out horseback riding, build a campfire in the woods and roast marshmallows, or kayak down the Genesee River.
