I Can’t Right Now, I’m Busy.

It is now Winter Break Eve, and I am ready to flee. But, I just can’t. I have SO much to do between now and tomorrow before I take a mini vaca in a town where there is more snow and it is colder. Wow, my break just sounded really melancholy. So, to make it […]

Choosing Your Dream College

I’ve been in your position before, class of 2018. It’s the last half of your senior year, and for many of you, you haven’t decided where your next journey will take you. Where will I be for the next four years? For some of you, you’ve had your heart set somewhere, and for many of […]

#Snowpocalypse Part 2

Happy Wednesday to all! I made it to the halfway point of this week. I never thought this would happen assuming how cold it’s been. This week, West Michigan experienced a Polar Vortex thing. As I mentioned in my first #Snowpocalypse blog, Hope College cancelled class at noon last Friday because of deteriorating weather. From […]

#Snowpocalypse

From frigid arctic air, ice, and ungodly amounts of snow, Hope College has endured so much already this semester. I’m pretty sure that this fine institution has made HISTORY. Why? 2½ snow days in ONE SEMESTER. This school never closes because of snow because we’re a residential college. Meaning, the majority of students live on-campus, and […]

Pursuing the Nursing Major

Hey readers! This past October, I posted a blog regarding the ins and outs of the nursing major here at Hope College. If you want to read that, click here. It’s information heavy (maybe); just a fair warning! But what I want to do now is to post about it again, because I’ve met so […]

Winter Wonderland

It’s so great to be back at Hope, folks! I have settled and moved back into my apartment, and bought my books for the upcoming semester. I only needed 3, but the total was still over $300 with used books, and I even tried looking on Amazon. Oh, the struggles of being a poor college […]

#Hope2018

Hashtag Hope 2018. You’re in, but what now? Before I answer that, you have NO idea how excited I am for the Hope College Class of 2018. Me, along with the student bloggers have been glued to the Hope College Facebook App answering your questions and introducing ourselves. It’s quite fun. What I am most […]

Choosing Hope College

Isn’t it a great feeling to be on break, everyone? Just sitting and relaxing, not doing anything? By the end of exam week, my brain was fried, and it needed to recover. I can safely say that my brain is at optimum functioning. Anyways, seeing as many students from the Class of 2018 are receiving […]

Seven Ways My Christmas Ornaments Support My Decision to Attend Hope

Even my Christmas tree agrees: Hope is the perfect spot for me! Even though I’m 7 hours from home, when you find the right place for you, it becomes a home away from home. You may have heard the term “Home Sweet Hope,” and it couldn’t be more true. From the first time I stepped […]
