    Hope is, put simply, a lot of fun. But beware lest ye become too caught up in all the clubs and events and forget to do thine homework (for example, I should be doing my French homework right now). Also, Chapel is awesome, and they schedule your classes around it.

    The only thing I don't like about Hope is the winter. :) The community, however, is great! There are a lot of quirky people here, so fun/strange things happen, like the boys in Durfee hall parading around campus banging out beats on whatever they can find, or the chapel band dressing up for Halloween. Everyone is open and friendly, too!

    Hope provides so many activities to get it's students involved! We have some wonderful traditions here, like The Pull, Nykerk, the Hope and Calvin Rivalry, and more! There is something for everyone to be involved in!

    Because Hope is small, it gives you a tight community to live in, but not so tight you feel like you are on top of each other. Professors know you on a first name basis as opposed to a number in the network, and they are so willing to help you as a person, and not just as a member of their class. There are so many different small groups or programs that you can join, and there is always something you can do.

    I love the campus it is very beautiful. Hope is not too far from Lake Michigan, which is gorgeous. I am on the cross country team and love it when our workouts would end at the beach.
