Houghton College is a great place to go if you want to focus on academic growth and intellectual cultivation, however the rigid and antiquated student behavior codes and constant threats against individualism and personal choices flood the social context there. Even though I started attending the Wesleyan college as a traditional christian, I became repulsed by the way students were treated for having different ethical beliefs and exerting their right to make personal choices. This school will not hesitate to tarnish a student's college records because of infractions to the code of conduct. The college presents itself as a safehouse for Christian folk, but is in fact a cesspool in which the "righteous" swim among the reform students and students are supposed to adopt a one note frame of mind.
