The Opportunities Holland Provides

Hey Everyone,

This weekend I got to see my family and run my first half marathon. The half marathon was called the Park2Park. It was put on by Holland Hospital. Holland is a beautiful city, with multiple sites to see. This half marathon took you on a run throughout some of the most beautiful and peaceful parts of town. This is a picture of my cousin, uncle, sister, and myself after finishing the half marathon.


There are many other options as well. For example;

1. Every Wednesday and Saturday morning they host a farmers market downtown, this is always a good time and you can get some healthy, fresh food as well!

2. Downtown Frozen Yogurt bars will do fundraisers that are fun for all of us.

3. If you are able to be in the area for a couple days after the school year ends, you can see the awesome Tulip Time Festival! This festival exibits the awesome heritage of Holland and is a lot of fun as well.

These all are just a few opportunities that Holland puts on. Hope College also takes the time to really put on a lot of fun opportunities for the student body and surrounding community.

Fall Break is in one week, definitely something to look forward to! A nice long weekend to spend with family relaxing and catching up on the sleep that you miss out on during the hustling and bustling of the college life. It also gives you something to look forward to at the end of a busy week of classes, activities, friends, and homework! Thank you all for listening, I hope you had an awesome weekend and that you aren’t as sore as I am or as sore as the Pull guys are.

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!
