They would love to help!

The Fried Center for Global Engagement aims to integrate the perspective of international students and scholars into the campus community, to provide off-campus study opportunities for all students, and to stimulate conversation of cross cultural and global issues, all of which contribute to the internationalization of Hope’s campus. This tradition of an international campus began with Hope’s first graduating class of 1879, which was one-third Japanese.

Are you ready to join in the tradition?

“Dada, Chai!” I hear my Mama call as I open my eyes. “Baba! Mama! Dada!” My baby host brother is yelling from outside of my bedroom window, which is obviously code for, “Dada, time to wake up, come play!” My family calls me “Dada,” (sister) because my name is very hard to pronounce for most […]
