Which Dining Hall Is Better – Cook or Phelps?

My first semester, I lived in Scott Hall, which meant I had to eat in the Phelps Dining Hall. Phelps Dining Hall is mostly for freshmen and sophomores. The second semester I moved to Cook Hall, so I gained an access to Cook Dining Hall. In order to be able to eat in Cook Dining […]

Another Birthday in the Drez

Brooke’s Baked Donuts | Better Than Good Time?

If you go to Hope currently or are a recent alumni, you’ve probably heard of Good Time Donuts. This is the sketchy little donut shop that everyone goes to in the middle of the night to get some hot, fresh pastries. Their donuts are nothing short of amazing, but I’ve realized how bad for you […]

The Fall Break Fridge Frenzy, featuring Fantastic Food

A few weeks ago while speaking with my mom on the phone, she asked me what type of cake I’d like to have for my 20th birthday (count it down, everyone– my birthday is in fourteen days!). I pondered it for a moment– Chocolate? Vanilla? Pumpkin Spice (it is Fall, right)? But I had only […]

Hope College’s Annual Chicago Trip!

Hey Folks! As I promised, here is another post, and it’s a happier one too! Last weekend, I had the privilege with 2 other SAC (Student Activities Committee) members to plan the annual Chicago trip. This trip had so much planning behind it, and I didn’t realize this until I jumped in the bandwagon. But, […]

Time to get Merry!

While enjoying a marvelous and relaxing break, I helped prepare my family’s house for the Christmas season.
