Recap of #HopeHomecoming 2014!

I can’t believe #HopeHomecoming was about a week ago! It seems as if it was forever ago because time just flies! Anyway, Homecoming was such a great time. I was able to be present and even participate in some of the events that happened, which was a lot of fun!


So last Friday, Student Activities Committee (SAC) had their annual Homecoming Hoedown! Even though the weather was wet, windy, and cold, students came and it was a great outcome. There was so much cider, donuts, and fall foods. The line dancing was also pretty awesome, no doubt. Check out the slideshow below for some awesome pictures!


I started off my morning early by volunteering for the Flying 5K Hope College hosts. It was a lot fun because I volunteered with Kristen, a great friend of mine. Although it was very chilly, it was fun to see the runners and being part of the help was also satisfying. Later that afternoon, I participated in the Student Life fair where there was a table for SAC and my fellow directors and myself shared information with students and alumni about our organization. Following that, the Taste of the South: Memphis Blues & BBQ was happening, so I also ate the food and boy was it great!!! Saturday, although gloomy, was made a joyful day because of the outcomes of the events!!


Sundays are for homework, right? Anyway, that’s what I did a bunch of. No surprise there for ya. But another highlight to last Sunday was The Gathering service. Let me tell you, the worship music was on point, and the message was also very eye-opening. I love Gatherings such as those. It just refreshes and reminds me of how great God is and how amazing Hope College is. I’m truly blessed to go here!

I can’t believe this was my last Homecoming as a Hope student! It’s crazy how fast time flies during your time here. Stay tuned friends, fellow blogger Leslie and I have a new vlog surprise waiting for you. If you haven’t seen our other ones, make sure to check them out! CLICK HERE to see awesome vlogs about Hope!
