Hey, class of 2024! The Step2Success team is beyond excited to meet you and support you as you begin your college journey. The program coordinators for this year, Kristin Hill, Adil Keri and Mikayla Zobeck, have been diligently preparing for the great memories incoming freshmen will make connecting with this program.

Our pre-orientation program allows incoming students of color the opportunity to move-in the day before orientation. This is a major benefit to many incoming students because there are lots of perks to moving in early! Our student volunteers will also be available to assist you move in to your dorm and help get you started at Hope. 

Of course, we don’t stop there! Incoming students and current students will participate in fun activities that allow you to meet other new students and connect with the Hope community. 

Building a Community

Our program provides students with a network of support by helping them connect with faculty, students, and administrators who will be essential to making their experience at Hope exceptional. We also hold activities that help build community and foster cross-cultural relationships in a fun and interactive way. Our program doesn’t end at the end of the pre-orientation event because we assign you an S2S peer-mentor to assist you with all areas of your transition at Hope. Another big draw for our program is that it’s FREE! So, you can join by signing up to start your college experience on a great note.
