The past two and a half semesters at Hope College have been a dream. After high school, my decision to attend Hope came only after having looked at and dismissing Michigan State University, which has 10 times more students. Personally, Hope College was a wonderful candidate for undergrad because they have some wonderful facilities, an amazing location (Lake Michigan sunsets!), Christian values (while also not enforcing any religious activity outside of school!) and some fine athletics.
Running Cross Country was in the forefront of my mind when I looked at Hope, and the coaches and team welcomed me with open arms. My talents as a runner have been pushed to far greater heights than I could have ever imagined were possible and for that I’m thankful.
I have the highest possible meal plan, which gives me unlimited swipes in the dining halls, and I frequently drop into the dining hall to grab a bite when I get a second, even if it's just making peanut butter toast after class. New this year, the dining hall is open all day long, even between prepared meal times, which allows for plenty of flexibility on days when my schedule is overcrowded.
The atmosphere of Hope is very welcoming. When Chapel isn’t mandatory, having a full service is all the more special because you know that everyone present wants to be there. Additionally, the students at Hope are very involved and very passionate.
Hope College is one hundred percent worth pursuing!
Hope College isn't your typical Christian College. Students like me who are not Christian can feel safe and accepted on campus. We are not required to attend chapel services, which also helps make the school open to any and all students. The school has many facilities to help students achieve including a success center that helps with time management and disabilities as well as psychological services for students who are struggling in other ways. Teachers are often available, even if it means an email, and are wonderful resources as well. Hope College is a great place to be and I absolutely have loved my time here so far.
Hope College is a small liberal arts school in Holland, MI. It's location is hard to beat. You are right next to downtown Holland and the beaches. However, Hope is not for everyone as it is a Christian college and can be very conservative at times. The student body and faculty are more liberal than the college policies represent, because the donors are a huge influence. Hope students are often genuine, kind, and extremely intentional about everything they partake in. It's a great place with great academics, but one should be aware of the social issues gong in.
Was a good place to kick off my college career. The class sizes are on the small side, so the professors know your name and put in the extra effort to make sure each student is understanding the subject matter. It's very easy to get in touch with professors outside of the classroom which is very helpful. The school is very generous and offers many opportunities that are already paid for (i.e. a trip to Las Vegas). With such a small student body, there are many opportunities to find that'll look great on your resume.

It is important that a student seeking the proper college not seek the same experience that he or she is having in high school. Many things about a person can change, and likely should change, about him or her in the first year away from home. This change ranges from ways of thinking, to challenging oneself, to living well, to the manner in which he or she treats others of all backgrounds. College is a time for fun and social activity as well, so it is important that a college-seeking student probe the availabilities of campus activities and the varieties of those activities. All in all. the most important piece is choosing a school that will challenge the student and cause him or her to grow both academically and personally.
the best thing about my school is the professors and class sizes. all my professors are so nice and easy to get along with. if you have a problem with anything they have no problem staying after class and helping you with it. and all my class sizes are small which i really enjoy.
It is a small school, with lots of things to do and people to meet.
I feel as though I was very well educated as to what the expectations were within the college and what I should expect. I do wish that I was able to have more of an understanding of how much the college course studies would take over my life and leave little time for actually socializing but I suppose that is very normal in any college situation.
Friendly, outgoing, caring people.
It's in a small town, but has a large town feeling
As a student attending an expensive private school, I need to be employed while in school so I can help my parents pay for college. Unfortunately, employment has been extremely hard to come by at Hope and in the surrounding community. I do not have a car, which makes it much harder. I would consider that the worst part for me.
Hope College is best known for the environment in and out of the classroom. The amount of students per class is small compared to larger universities and the professors honestly care about the students in their classes. The out of classroom environment is very friendly and encouraging. Everyone on campus is willing to help and support you. The Holland community is also very supportive and involved with the college students.
Someone who is reserved and keeps to themself. Also, if you have no respect for Christianity, don't attend Hope.
A student that likes a small enviorment, being able to talk and meet with other students and professors reguarally, challenged acadamically and one is willing to meet people that will be in their lives for a long time.
I pay for school myself, so the cost is frustrating.
The kind of education that I am able to get at Hope. Because classrooms are small, professors are always willing to help inside and outside of class. I truely believe that the kind of education I can get from Hope is unlike most other schools, even other small, liberal arts colleges. Hope offers so many different educational programs that anyone can find where they belong and decide what they will be doing for the rest of their life.
