The People You Meet

Hey Everyone!

Two weeks have gone by and things are already off to a great start! Classes are challenging but oddly enough they are awesome in the same way. The real meaning of this post is to tell you all how amazing the people you will meet at Hope College are!

  1. You are going to meet some of the kindest, most genuine people you ever will! (your best friend and maybe even life long relationship!)
  2. The hardest part is remembering names! You will meet so many amazing people that you will struggle with remembering names, it just is that way, but it is awesome all in the same!
  3. The students and faculty are unlike any other college. Nothing compares to the people I have met here! I could not be happier! Everyone truly cares about you, even if you have never met them or if you cannot remember their name.
  4. The people at Hope will be genuine and really ask you how you are doing. The charisma of the students here is amazing! The campus is beaming with happiness!

One of the nicest things about Hope College is that they create a lot of opportunities and activities for you and your newly made friends to do! This allows you to get to know each other and have a blast all at the same time! The area of Holland is wonderful as well! Downtown is so close to campus that you can walk a block and get frozen yogurt with friends whenever! There are some awesome beaches around as well! I got to go to a place we call “The Bowl” and watch the sunset the other night, which you cannot beat a Bowl sunset!

The following night I went to the State Park Beach which is equally amazing! It is beautiful as well and has beach volleyball courts and a big pier you can jump off of! In reality though, it is the people you go on these adventures with that make it so amazing!

Thanks for letting me share about my friends!

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!
