After Hope College

Hope College was my second choice last year when applying for colleges, but now that I have been here for a few months I don't know why it wasn't my first choice. Hope College is a great place to go and Holland Michigan is a beautiful place to spend time in all year round. When I visited last year, I automatically fell in love with the professors and the programs and classes Hope has to offer. I am also a lacrosse player. At Hope college sports are really important, but the coaches know that school is more important. This makes for a wonderful balance of school work and sports along with getting closer with your team mates because everyone is going through the same thing. When you strive to do great in both sports and your classes, there is a larger sense of success that is overwhelming. I am so grateful to be at Hope College.

I loved Hope! It was a beautiful campus, and conveniently placed next to downtown Holland. The dorms are a little out dated, however the campus makes up for it!

I absolutely love Hope College. The community is amazing and everyone is so friendly. I already have lots of friends and find my classes very interesting! They are installing heated sidewalks outside of my dorm which is a little annoying because I have to walk around the construction but it'll be great once they're done.
