Athletics & Recreation

As a Houghton Highlander, you can let your competitive side out to play one of our 18 NCAA D-III sports.Or perhaps intramural or club sports are more your style. And naturally, all of our teams need fans - the louder, the better.

In terms of recreation, you name it and you can find it here: hiking, camping, skiing, swimming, canoeing, and even a ropes course in the Houghton Forest. We're also about 15 minutes away from Letchworth State Park, with gorgeous waterfalls and hiking trails.
