Hope offers more than 300+ programs in over 60 countries for off-campus study.  Freiburg, Santiago, Tokyo, St. Petersburg, Seville, Rabat, Paris, Valparaíso, Sydney…. the world is wide open.  Interested in learning more??  Contact the Fried Center for Global Engagement or stop by the MMC 109 to meet with the staff or peer advisors. 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?

Lessons from the Concrete Jungle
