Featured Testimonial

When looking for colleges, I only visited Houghton once, but it was a place I could picture myself living and thriving in, almost as if it was already familiar to me. The safe, comfortable campus, hidden in the midst of an incredibly beautiful landscape, seemed like an exciting new home.
