Spring Fling – Music, Friends, Fun.

Most days here at Hope are pretty great, but none have been greater than last Friday afternoon, when SAC held Spring Fling in the Pine Grove. The sky was bright blue and faces were smiling as Hope’s entire student body lined up around the Pine Grove, waiting to enter and receive the free Spring Fling […]

Busy and Fun, A Rare Occurrence
