Reegan at Houghton College
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
I'm from Rochester, New York, and I'm a junior here at Houghton College. My major is clinical psychology, with a minor in communications. Houghton College is located in western New York, about an hour south of Buffalo and Rochester. If you're familiar with those two cities, um, and it is a small Christian school. So we have about 1000 and 14 students here again is small, but that has a lot of advantages. So the student to teacher ratio is also very small, which allows you to be able to meet one on one with your professors when you're struggling in a class or just need a little bit of extra help. I know that I've had some classes that I've struggled with in the past on I've heard my other friends from bigger schools just go man like, I really need help and I can't meet with my professor necessarily. With Hogan now, that's that's not as much of a struggle, which is what I absolutely love about it here. It's a small school, so you really get to know everybody. Um And so when you're walking down any of the trails or going to class, you're almost always gonna pass someone that you know, um, that you could say hi, thio on it. One of the things I love about hoping is the athletics. I am a three sport athlete, so I do soccer, indoor track and lacrosse. Um, and one thing about Houghton being a D three school is that I'm able to do multiple sports and, um, still succeed in my academics because they really care about your academic. So you're able to work with your coaches, work with your professors and make sure that you're still getting Thekla quality education that you need but also have the enjoyment of being able to play sports competitively and add a collegiate level. Um, and what I also love about Houghton is just the fact that it's so Christ centered. So in your academics, your teachers are often praying before class. I've had teachers do DeVos before class, which is super awesome. Um, in every single one of my athletics, I've had, um, chaplains who are willing to meet with you one on one and give DeVos Thio, um, your team and they just help you grow. It is such an exciting environment to be, and especially if you are eager to grow close with God, which is something that I was definitely wanting to dio. Why did I choose Houghton? So when I was little, my sister went here and I just remember going around with her and she's saying hi to all her friends and just a community that was here and how you could just really feel the Holy Spirit on campus. The athletics is so great, Andi, I have just absolutely fallen in love with it since I was in fourth grade. I just remember being like, Oh, it is where I want to go. We have things like spot events, which is a huge talent show that happens every semester. Um, and there's also things like I have an amazing race tomorrow, which is gonna be super awesome. So there's just a lot of ways to stay connected on campus. Um, and there's also worship events like coin that happens every Sunday or mercy seat That happens every night on Ben. So it is definitely a place where you can find and dig a deeper relationship with God, a great community, a great place to do athletics. So if you are looking for small Christian school I'm telling you how in this where to go. Ah, bit of a journey through just giving you a tour of what ho and is like, um, yes, I just fall along.
