If you are notPhilosophy
If you are not an evangelical Christian culture kid please, for the love of yourself, go to a regular college. Meet regular people. Have a real college experience. Please.

Question
Shady campus administration, a lot of sketchy thingsNot so brightEducation
Shady campus administration, a lot of sketchy things going on behind in the background. Not a lot of partying going on which can be good or bad depending on what you want. Academics are good and campus is beautiful. Truly my problem comes with the administration and their handle on issues. Several sexual assault cases have slipped through the cracks. Bad handle on when a student committed suicide. Community can be oppressive and stifling after a certain point.

Question
Houghton College was an awful experience for myself.Other
Houghton College was an awful experience for myself. It is quite a bubble and if you don't happen to fit, well that's too bad! People definitely don't try to welcome you in and make you feel comfortable. The professors are very smart, but the faculty don't go out of their way to make you feel valued as a student. I feel more valued by my independent cat than I did by over half of the staff and professors of Houghton College. If you decide that, "Houghton is the place for me", you will experience more hypocrisy than you could have possibly ever imagined.
