Major & Grad Year: Hotel Administration 2010 Cornell University
Fun Facts: I absolutely love being outside: camping, hiking, bushcraft, gardening, snow machining, and kayaking. I love all things homemaking: cooking, canning, preservation, organizing, interior decorating, and crocheting.
Favorite Thing About Houghton: Houghton’s location makes the college especially appealing. Nestled in the hills of western New York, Houghton offers students a sanctuary surrounded by the quiet life of rural living. The serene atmosphere engenders community and the enjoyment of a world that God made for our delight. The springtime is vibrant with floral displays. Autumn is absolutely breathtaking with flames of color dressing the deciduous trees. And believe it or not, winter holds its own beauty as pure white snow gently clothes the rolling hills and creates a sense of peace and stillness.
Why I Work @ Houghton: I accepted this job as an enrollment advisor at Houghton because I believe you are about to make a very great decision. Big decisions take time, thought, and prayer. I am excited and honored to be one of the people who will help you make that decision by praying with you, supporting you, and giving you the tools and information that you need to make the best decision for your future so that you can complete the good works that God has planned for you in advance. Houghton’s Various Options I really appreciate Houghton’s generosity to local students. High school students (homeschool, public, and Christian) are invited to take online and in-person courses at a discounted rate. What a wonderful opportunity to broaden your horizons and set new academic goals while gaining transferable college credits. Houghton also offers online associate, undergraduate, and graduate degrees. Houghton has flexed to meet the changing dynamics of our world. Adult and traditional students are given a wonderful opportunity to learn remotely. Online classes are structured to provide students with an education that will accelerate their God-given potential in a world that needs people of character with a heart for service. And of course, Houghton offers the traditional on-campus experience. With the newly established and steeply discounted rates, students can receive an affordable, personalized, and challenging academic experience that will equip them for lifelong success in their field of study.
Tip for Prospective Students and Families
God has a wonderful plan for your life. I suggest that you make your college or university choice through prayer and with the council of those you know and love you. We really cannot mess up God’s plan for our lives when we are immersed in God’s word and living in healthy fellowship. As you submit your plans to God and walk through the doors of opportunity that He opens, He will arrange your life and get you where He wants you to be for His great purpose.
