            Houghton College has a rich tradition of connecting strong academics and Christian faith in producing servant-leaders. The Houghton Campus provides a supportive environment for academic and personal success. Over the years, I have had a greater appreciation for what Houghton provided me. The "new" Houghton has awesome facilities: academic,athletic,and housing. If you take a tour make sure to see the business center and new athletic complex. The leadership, faculty and staff are top notch and will provide an excellent return on your college investment. I am proud to be an alum of Houghton!

            1968-1972, Bachelor of Arts (BA), Philosophy

            Many years ago I chose Houghton College over other area schools because I was impressed with the high quality of its education. But even more than that, as a young Christian I was delighted that the school valued Christian faith and attempted to help eager minds discover their unique calling and prepare them for service to God and society. I am privileged at this stage of my life to be able to be a part of the great Houghton team of faculty and staff who are raising up a new generation of "scholar-servants" who are making the world a better place.

            Awesome new facility and programs - they have thought of everything and created an adult learning atmosphere that enhances the already strong curriculum that provides the needed education to take that next step in your career. I did it and am forever grateful to the entire staff and my cohort for their support during my journey. Don't be afraid to take the leap!
