It's All About Community
For a school with a little over 1,000 students, Houghton’s student body is surprisingly diverse—and that is what makes our community life so special.
Every day you'll rub shoulders with people from different countries, church denominations, Ethnic and cultural backgrounds. We think that is a good thing.
At Houghton, we make it a priority to live and learn together as brothers and sisters in Christ.
Find your niche
The possibilities are virtually endless.
Play an intercollegiate sport. Run for student government. Write for the campus newspaper. Perform in a music ensemble. Volunteer in the community. Join the Ultimate Frisbee Club or tutor refugee children. With so much to explore, you are bound to find something you love.
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.

Feel like you need some space?
As a Houghton student, our 1,300-acre campus is yours to explore! Our stunning outdoor setting makes it easy to find a place to pray, think, study or play. 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.
