Hope College Hockey 2016–2017

As in every year since the early 2000s, Hope College has had a men’s ice hockey team. Last year, we finished with a great record of 20-5, but unfortunately we lost against the Central Michigan University and did not make it to Nationals. This year has been different. Our record has been 20-9-1, which is by […]

Hope College Athletics: 2015-16

The school year, including our varsity athletic seasons, is slowly but surely coming to the end. In recognition of athletic events, Ben Lemmen, 2014 Hope College graduate, directed and produced a highlight video called Hope College Athletics 2015-16. In the other words, here is what it means to be a Flying Dutchman!

If Ya Ain’t Dutch, Ya Ain’t Much

As a first year student here at Hope College, I have had the opportunity to meet some pretty awesome people. From the soccer players, to Young Life leaders, and even the school chaplains; I feel like I know some of the most important people on campus. One of those important people is a buddy of […]

433 Miles

433 Miles. Six hours and twenty-four minutes. That’s all that separates me from my front door. When I first committed to Hope, distance didn’t seem like that big of a deal to me. Sure, Pittsburgh is a long way from Holland, but in my naive, eighteen-year-old mind, I thought it would be easy. Now, I’m […]

The Highs and Lows of a Collegiate Athlete

Often times as people, we throw all of our weight into temporary happenings. Don’t worry, I’m the exact same way. To prove it, let me tell you a quick story: Last weekend, my family came to visit for the first time this school year. Naturally, I had a “picture perfect” plan in my head of […]

Last Day of Undergrad Classes

This year has officially come to a close! That’s right, today is my last day of classes and it’s pretty bittersweet. I don’t think it’s hit me quite yet because I’m excited just to be done with homework and projects, but I will greatly miss the friends, professors and routine of each day. However, I […]

Last Intramural Season!

This truly makes me sad to say that the last intramural season I will ever participate in at Hope has just started. Intramurals have really been such a highlight for me through my four years here and I honestly will miss playing various sports and hanging out with friends. This season, I’m playing co-ed soccer and […]
