Overall

I was excited for Houghton until my meeting with the dean of music. He said some radical things to me and my son about the persecution of christians. He said non-christians thinks we are bigots and racists and now we must be more than conservative than ever. The rest of the school seemed very nice and welcoming. I don't want to judge the rest of the school on the music area.

Overall

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.

Academics

Houghton College has rigorous classes, with many options. The professors are friendly and helpful and make themselves available to talk to or share concerns with, even outside of class time. The class size is fairly small, with most classes having fewer than 30 students.

College Life

There are many different clubs and organizations on campus - enough for almost anyone to find one that interests them. Organizations like the orchestra are open to anyone who qualifies, not just music majors. The Science Honors program is open to anyone, not just science majors.
