Student Ratings

Overall Rating

I like the friendly, small-town atmosphere of Houghton College. When you're walking around, people will stop and talk to you, or even just say "hello," while at a lot of other schools, people don't talk to you unless they know you. I also like the fact that it is Christian, and it is not too far from home, so I plan to go home for weekends.
