Let it begin…

College has finally come! After 18 years of living with my family I am now at Hope College. I will admit I was extremely nervous about coming to Hope, but I absolutely LOVE it! 

Hope has so many fun things to offer. I have been a new student for about two weeks now. The people here are incredibly friendly. When I moved into my dorm the orientation assistants moved all my belongings to my dorm. I did not have to carry one thing. I definitely felt welcomed. Orientation was a great experience and helped me get to know other freshman. During orientation our orientation assistants toured us through the campus and and gave us a bunch of useful information about living at Hope.

Needless to say, I really enjoyed orientation. Even though I was sad to say good bye to my parents I was so busy and excited about starting college that the goodbyes were not bad at all. I was actually kind of excited once my parents left because then I could officially begin college!

Some things that I already love about Holland

  • super beautiful
  • friendly people
  • adorable downtown
  • cute coffee shops for studying
  • 5 minute drive to the beach from campus
  • great sense of community with the college

These are just some of the things I have enjoyed so far. I know there will be more to come! I’ll be updating my blog on a regular basis and would love to hear from perspective students. If you have any questions about being a Freshman at Hope; I am here to help and would love to talk with you.

Have a great week everyone!
