Houghton College is terrible. Absolutely terrible. Let's be honest, there's only one reason a student goes to this school, to be sheltered. It is not challenging and does not prepare you for the real world. Go back and read the reviews on this website. They've been posted since 2004 and there's two distinct types: overwhelmingly positive and realistic/negative. Those reviews that claim the high standards and benefits of a Houghton education probably didn't move onto a position in their field or never even wanted to be successful. It's true, the faculty and administration don't challenge the students to be wildly successful, rather to "keep the status quo" and "be a good Christian". The hypocrisy at this school is unbelievable and the close-minded nature of the administration and faculty really makes you wonder if the college is a black hole where logic and thought are sucked away. Here's the bottom line: a degree from this school will cost you over $100k and no one even knows the name of this school. Save time, money and your sanity. Oh and it should be mentioned that enrollment is down to catastrophic levels, faculty and staff are being cut, and the college has incurred insurmountable debt. Houghton College will probably be shuttered in 2-5 years. That's also pretty important to consider when determining the value of a "houghton education".
