Featured Testimonial

The financial aid office was wonderful and worked very closely with us. In fact, our daughter's financial aid was what made the difference in her coming to Houghton. Several Christian colleges really wanted her and were offering her their very best packages, but Houghton's generous scholarships really made the difference.
