What Students Are Saying

4.12 Average Rating
Hope College provides a well balanced experience of both education and fun. You receive rigorous training to be successful in the future but you also have a chance to communicate with others and create strong bonds and fond memories. Being a small liberal arts college, you can really feel the connection among everyone and their passion for education and a wonderful college experience.
Pamela from Los Angeles, CA
Hope is a great place for students who are committed to being involved in their education and getting the most out of the college experiences Hope has to offer. It really does feel like friends and faculty are there to support you and help you get everything you could possibly want out of your time at Hope. For every stereotypical event, tradition, or group of people, there are at least three opposites available so you can always find what fits best.
