6 Things – 6 Weeks

Spring Break is drawing to a close, and after we all get back to campus, there are only about six weeks of classes left for the semester! Crazy, right? I can’t believe how fast this school year has gone and it’s so weird to think that I’m already almost a quarter of the way done with college! However, there is still a lot of stuff going on before classes end! Here are six things I am looking forward to in the next six weeks!

Spring Fling

I have heard such good things about Spring Fling from upperclassmen! It’s right at the end of the semester and I’m excited to hang out and have fun with a whole bunch of Hope students before finals! It will be such a nice way to take a quick breather before hitting the books!

Working at Glik’s

I recently got hired for the summer at Glik’s in downtown Holland, so I’m super excited to start working there! I think it’s going to be super fun and an awesome experience! If you’re going to be around, make sure to stop by and say hi! They’re opening a new location downtown, so there will be both a men’s and a women’s store on 8th Street!

Admitted Students Day

Admitted Students Day is on April 12, and I’m going to be there! I’m super excited to meet a bunch of you guys who are hoping to be here at Hope in the fall and get to talk to you a little bit! It’s going to be an awesome day!

RA Seminars

We start RA training next week and I’m really excited to get to know the girls I’ll be working with a little better! I’m so excited about the group of RAs that we have for next year!


There are still a ton of events happening in the music department before the end of the year, and I’m excited to get to experience those and listen to some beautiful music! I also get to perform in one of them! Hope has such awesome and talented musicians, and it is always a joy and a blessing to listen to the final product of all their practice!


It is finally starting to warm up and melt in Holland and that means spring is coming! I have never been more excited about spring! We have had such an awful winter that I don’t even mind all the allergy attacks that are about to be upon me! Spring will be wonderful!

What are you excited for before the end of your school year? Leave a comment, tweet @hopekathryn17, or email kathryn.krieger@hope.edu. I’d love to hear from you!

“Look, the winter is past,
    and the rains are over and gone.
The flowers are springing up,
    the season of singing birds has come,
    and the cooing of turtledoves fills the air.”

-Song of Solomon 2:11-12
