Science at Houghton: Shared Vision
Within the next 10 years, Houghton College desires to develop the premier national undergraduate natural science and mathematics division amongst Christian colleges of similar size. We are committed to offer a program in the sciences that is adapted to our diverse, technological culture. It must prepare our graduates to be competitive in the global economy and to adapt to rapidly changing job markets. Rigorous scientific and mathematical training in currently relevant scientific fields is required to position our graduates for entry into the national and international professional and graduate programs of their choice.
New $2,500 Scholarship for Alumni Children
Executive Director of Alumni Relations Dan Noyes is pleased to announce that Houghton College will honor its alumni and their children by offering an annual scholarship of $2,500 to all accepted applicants for admission who have at least one parent who is a Houghton alumnus. Recommended by the Admission Office and endorsed by the Alumni Board in their October 2008 meeting, this award will apply to all new first time students (alumni dependants) who enroll from 2009 onward. Students who remain in good standing can renew this award annually up to a maximum of four years.
The alumni scholarship is an ongoing scholarship program that will benefit alumni and their children for years to come. All who attended Houghton or United Wesleyan College for at least one semester, whether on the traditional campus or as part of the Adult Education Program, are considered alumni and are eligible to have their children benefit from this scholarship.

The Houghton College Alumni Board has proposed a use for the former Walldorf house on Main Street that will bring it back to its historical roots. The newly-renovated Walldorf Alumni House will be a place where Houghton College alumni can meet and where out-of-town alumni can stay the night. Initial plans were drawn for the 125th anniversary celebration in October with the input of the Alumni Association board. Detailed plans are currently being drafted.
