It kind of varies between the semesters and my classes are there are mixed between lecture and interactive stuff. What did you look for while searching for colleges? The biggest thing that I was looking for when searching for colleges was that it was a Christian school, which Houghton is. What makes how indifferent than other schools? I what makes holding different? I would honestly say the community I know it sounds a little bit cliche. I got ah, whole box in the mail where all my other schools that I applied to I got, um, just letters and envelopes. Houghton sent me this box full of confetti and balloons and stickers and, um ah, personal note as well as my acceptance letter. So that was one of the very first things that I noticed about Houghton standing out from the other schools that I was looking at. Um yeah, just to sum it up, I would definitely say just the intentionality of everyone here as well as the sense of community. What is your favorite thing about hoping? My favorite thing about Houghton is probably the people I've made some really good friends here? Um, I know their lifelong friendships, so I've been really thankful for that. I'm a junior music education major at the Great Vegetable of music at college. So why did you choose? Hoping I chose how in? Because when I visited, I met a lot of really great people.

Houghton is different than a lot of other schools because of, um, the community that we are in here and ah, lot of that attribute to the fact that we are a Christian campus and all are all here for the same purpose. Eso It's really great, you know that you have people to count on wherever you turn. What is your favorite thing about Houghton at home? And we have, um, pretty small classes because we're a small liberal arts college. So we get a lot of one on one time with professors and unique attention given to us by the professors, which has given me a lot of opportunities to grow in ways that I don't think I would have had a bigger school.
