I truly love the architecture and environment surrounding Hope College. Every day I wake up to a beautiful view of the Pine Groves and get to see the amazing campus. The academics are also amazing. Professors truly care about their students, and it shows.
I, personally, wasn't a huge fan of the student body. People are very cliquey here and are quick to judge. I'm also not very religious but chose to go to a Christian college, so that is on me.
I enjoy Hope College although it is a predominately white intuition there are several things they could improve on. I enjoy my major and the people I work with.
Sometimes I experience burnout from loads of work and commitments. I have experienced a few microaggressions from white students.
Hope College is so awesome. There are so many incredible ways to get involved on campus; there's truly a spot for everyone to fit in and feel like they're at home. The quality of education here is incredible and all of the professors are so committed to their student's success. I feel valued and respected, and I have every resource available I need to succeed and accomplish my goals. I've had such an awesome experience here so far and I'm excited for what's to come!
The only negative experience I've had at Hope College was due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and really had nothing to do with the college at all. It was difficult to be a first-year student during a global pandemic but Hope College was so committed to keeping us on campus and in classes as safely as they could. Even with what was happening globally, I still had a great first year and was able to establish myself on campus.
There are many opportunities to meet the people you will click with and if you take the opportunities you will love them. There is a lot to do on campus and it is as fun as you make it.
Sometimes it can be intimidating to be a minority, but you have to be willing to be open-minded.
I loved the small community Hope College had. Everyone was very involved in various organizations and it was easy to make friends.
Freshman year dorm with no AC.
I loved the community life on campus. There were always things going on and everyone was very friendly. Professors really care about students and the campus is a great home away from home.
If you're a picky eater like myself, the dining hall isn't always the best for the main course, but there's always food to be found!
