The Start of a New Semester, New Challenges, and a New Year

Hey Everyone,

I hope all of your breaks were wonderful. We have one week of our new semester down and it is looking like it will be bringing all new challenges. Change of major, higher-level classes, starting another job as an overnight host, and the opportunity to meet new people in new classes. Although there may be challenges, there are also some great things coming back. Seeing all the people you care and enjoy spending time with is awesome! Your hallway becomes your family. They will be there for you and be the ones you get to spend a lot of your day with. It helps when you have such great people in your hall. I am very excited for this new semester, new experiences with friends, and new opportunities.


Yesterday I got to have a great time at the Hope vs Calvin mens basketball game, even though it came with a disappointing loss. However, I got to cap the night off with the Gungor concert and a donut run with friends. I cannot tell you guys enough how blessed you will be by the people around you here at Hope College. The people and community are what make this place so amazing, on top of all the wonderful academics, great athletics, fantastic faith opportunities, and beautiful campus.

Hopefully all of you are enjoying being back as school as much as I am!
Thanks for reading!

I am a transfer here at Hope College, I am studying Psychology and am really enjoying my time here! I was born in Holland, MI, but grew up up north in Traverse City, MI. My parents have moved back down to Holland which is where I call home now! If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
