A Top Christian College in New York State

Houghton University maintains a niche as the only nationally recognized Christian liberal arts college in New York State, according to U.S. News & World Report.

Located in the hamlet of Houghton, NY, Houghton’s residential campus sits on the Allegheny Plateau at roughly the 1,300-foot level, on the site of the former Caneadea Indian Reservation of the early 1800s. Fifteen miles to the north are the Genesee’s magnificent Portage Falls and Letchworth State Park, voted the #1 State Park in the United States.

On all sides is the scenic beauty of the rolling hills and northern hardwood forests of Western New York State. Allegany County, with extensive state forest land, abundant wildlife, and cross-country and downhill ski trails, is rapidly developing into a leading recreation area of Western New York.
