What Students Are Saying

4.12 Average Rating
Get a box fan, sign up for every club's mailing list you want, and say 'HI' to everyone you see. Come to Hope ready to experience all that you think you'll experience, plus some more that you never would have expected. You can really get a whole lot out of your first year if you are actively engaged in the campus.
Isabel from Albuquerque, NM
Bring warm clothes, Michigan gets cold quick! Also, get involved there are so many events going on, and lectures outside of class that are really impressive. It may seem weird to go to educational events, but they are totally worth it.
Julia from Bowling Green, OH
Visit first- and make sure to attend classes while you're there.
Kelsey from Sycamore, IL
It seems that prospective students are here every weekend, so if you are interested in Hope, absolutely contact them for a prospective weekend or for a tour. You can stay with current students in their dorms and go on a tour of the campus. If you live far away from the campus, you may be eligible for different programs that help you pay to get to the campus.
Hannah
Come prepared to work hard, but know that you're going to have a lot of fun as well. If you're interested in research, make sure you talk to your professors about it; sometimes all you need to do to get into a research lab is ask.
Dale from Grandville, MI
Make sure you spend the night and attend classes to see if this is the right fit for you.
Talk to students in your similar interests and they can relate their personal opinion on the topic rather than the advisers or professors, although they give great insight too.
Alison from Portage, MI
Just like any other private college, Hope does require a good deal of money to attend. However, they are very helpful in providing financial aid for those students that truly need it and are willing to help as much as possible. The undergrad programs that Hope has are all great and some of the best around. Hope is one of the only private schools that offer dance as a major, and have a great and heavy dance program. Apart from that, they also have great science and pre-med programs. All of the professors at Hope are very qualified in their fields. Most professors have written their own books. Professor Matt DeJongh received the Fulbright and National Science Foundation awards for some of his bioinformatic research.
Russell from Delaware, OH
I would definitely consider Hope College if you like the home town setting of a town. Holland is a beautiful city, with a wonderful downtown which is only about a 4 minute walk from campus. Hope is a rather small school, which makes it easier to get to know people, and faculty.
Lindsey from Holland, MI
Visit the school at least twice. Spend a day exploring the campus and talking to professors in your fields of interest. Take a walk through down town Holland.
Robert from Niles, MI
Hope's small size helps you meet new people who'll be your friends for life.
Amanda from Livonia, MI
