    As a private college, Hope can be rather expensive, but decent need-based and merit-based aid can be provided upon acceptance. At the very least, a Hope degree is not at all a waste of time; academics are taken very seriously, the college has a great reputation, and there is always something to do on campus or in Holland. While schools do exist that carry more prestige or are more well-known, I honestly have yet to meet a Hope graduate who was not satisfied with his or her experience. Fair warning: it's a bad idea to throw money at a school like Hope without the intention to give it your all. Professors are helpful, enormous resources are available to you, and coursework is meaningful, but in the end, that bang for the buck rests on your effort.

    The school really makes sure you get what you are paying for, and professors like to make sure you know this.
