The downside of this college is being far from fast food places and limited shops nearby. The positive side is that it is far from distractions. I have made some friends from places I may never go to(like Africa). You are only bored if you choose to sit in your dorm room alone. Many different activities are available to students.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

This is a Christian college, they talk and teach about God.

Houghton has provided a place where I feel comfortable exploring different academic interests. The professors are incredible and very personable, which has been a blessing.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Houghton College has a system of beliefs rooted very deep in the Wesleyan church. It can sometimes feel isolating if you have differing views from the college.
