Hope College is my valentine (Well, sort of).

In honor of Valentine’s Day tomorrow, I decided to ask some of my friends why they LOVE Hope College! Here’s what they had to say!


Freshman nursing major; Has been to Africa twice!

“I love the fact that we can worship and grow in our faith together.”


Freshman nursing major; Her middle name is Valentine!

“I love Hope College because you are supported in everything you do, not only in your faith, but also in academics and achievements.”


Freshman special education major; Has no sense of smell!

“I love being able to have close relationships with professors.”


Freshman nursing major; Won a pie-eating contest!

“I love Hope College because I met lifelong friends here.”


Freshman chemistry major; Has played clarinet for 10 years!

“I love that Hope is small enough that you get to know your advisors on a personal level and they can help you get on track for the job you want to have.”


Freshman education major; Loves Taco Bell!

“I love Hope College because of the friendly Christian-based atmosphere and all of the lovely smiling faces!”


Freshman social work major; When she was little she threw tantrums in the grocery store for broccoli!

“I love Hope because I love my cluster.”


Freshman communications major; Her last name is the same as her birthday month!

“I love the Christian atmosphere!”


Sophomore management major; Someone has been named after her!

“I love Hope College because I look good in navy.”


Freshman undecided on her major; Used to have a pet hedgehog!

“I love Hope because the people here make me feel like I’m at home and they’re very accepting of who you are and where you come from.”
