Houghton College provides "God-centered liberal arts and some science" to students who want "a challenge both academically and spiritually." Although Houghton has "a strong academic record," students feel the focus is more on religion than studying: "Houghton is a place where the students are learning to live life as a community of Christians whose sole purpose is to glorify Jesus Christ," says one student. Houghton is about "learning with God in mind," and students who are looking for "a great Christian atmosphere" will enjoy it here.
