This past weekend “Fly-In Weekend” happened and I was one of your hosts, so if you are prospective student, this is something that you may want to think about.
The Fly-In program kicked off on Thursday night at 7:00 p.m., where the visiting students gathered with their hosts in front of the fireplace in Phelps Dining Hall. By the way, it is called Fly-in Weekend because students fly in to Hope from all different states, like New York, Utah or California. Continuing back, we gathered at 7 p.m. to play some ice breaking game and to have a little informative session of what is happening for next 48 hours the stay.
On Friday, the prospective students had an all-day program and then we went to a basketball game. The day starts at 8:30 a.m., where there is a student panels, actual classes visits, campus tour and trip in the Holland area and to the beach. The we went to a dinner and 7:30 p.m. basketball game. The next day, they were flying back to their respective states.
It is a great event for anybody who really wants to experience a Hope College over the night. You sleep with an actual student for two nights and everything is set up for you. So definitely something to think about if you are highly interested in Hope College.
