          There are no reviews for Hope College yet,
          be the first one to review.

          • Testimony
            2009-2013, Bachelor's Degree

            The opportunities that Hope provides its students and alumni are unparalleled. The care and passion that professors and facility members bring to each and every lesson will make graduating one of the most bitter sweet moments of your life. You know you are ready for your next step, but you won't necessarily want to leave Hope's community. The community of Hope is really the difference, it seems that whenever I wear a Hope hat or Hope shirt in public I'm stopped by someone who is looking to go there, is currently there, has recently graduated or knows someone who went there. And there always willing to share their favorite Hope moments.

          • Testimony
            1985-1989, B. A. cum laude

            I would recommend Hope to any prospective student. Hope's professors taught me to think analytically and they took a personal interest in me as a student and as a person. I see professors I haven't seen in 25 years and I'm amazed when they remember me by name. That speaks to why the alumni association is as strong as it is and why Hope continues to produce leaders in all fields.

          • Testimony
            1966-1970, Bachelor Of Arts

            In my immediate family (siblings, in-laws and families), 18 are Hope graduates and 2 others attended for 2 years or more. As an alma mater, Hope has never disappointed any of us. Liberal arts education is the best, because you are prepared to think, analyze and adjust to new things. Who would have believed that an English major would be Business Director in charge of $17 million in budgets and grants? It's that kind of life change for which a liberal arts education can prepare you.
