Houghton Ranked in the Top 50 Christian Colleges in the U.S.
Houghton College has been ranked number 38 among the best U.S. Christian universities and colleges by Christian Universities Online.
According to Christian Universities Online, “This list attempts to present a ranking of Christian colleges and universities taking into consideration a variety of quantitative values. They first began with regionally accredited schools that were also either accredited by TRACS or a member/affiliate of CCCU. Focusing on these accredited schools, the ranking was compiled considering which offered the highest degree of personal attention (student-to-faculty ratio), selectivity (acceptance rate), financial assistance (percent receiving financial aid), and student satisfaction (retention and graduation rates).”
These factors were all given equal weight and thus led to the compilation of the 50 best Christian colleges and universities in the U.S.
Over the past years Houghton College has remained a top ranked Christian liberal arts school in the U.S. Most recently Houghton was featured by the Fiske Review with a rating of four out of four stars for quality of life.
Houghton also has received top ranking as a Best National Liberal Arts College by U.S. News & World Report; ranked in the Top 4% of Colleges Nationwide by Forbes; as one of the Best Colleges in the Northeast by the Princeton Review; and as a 2014 Best Value Liberal Arts College by Kiplinger’s Finance.
