Welcome to the 175th issue of Houghton!

In 1970, Dean Liddick ’60, Director of Public Information at Houghton, inaugurated a new publication for Houghton alumni and friends called Milieu. The new magazine format replaced what had formerly been a series of three newsletter-style publications.

The first issue was deemed an “experiment” that sought to convey the “flavor and effectiveness of today’s Houghton” via features, campus news and alumni stories. The magazine has evolved over the last 45 years, varying in size, length and the number of issues printed per year.

Today, the magazine we call Houghton exists to communicate the values and vision of the college, to connect alumni from across the decades, and to engage and encourage readers in their Christian faith, vocations and service throughout the world.

First issue, December 1970

First full-color cover, March 1985

New cover design, Summer 2000

First issue called Houghton, Fall/Winter 2009
