First Night out

Hey Everyone!

I had my first night out with a group of friends from my dorm last night. We had a lot of fun and ate some amazing food! We drove to Grand Rapids which was about 35 minutes away. It was nice to have a study break for the night and have a big city so close to Holland. We also were able to explore the art prize a little bit last night. It was my birthday yesterday so when we came back from dinner we had some yummy cake. At first I was worried I wouldn’t have a great birthday because I wasn’t with people from home, but it turns out I had one of the best birthdays. When I woke up my door was decorated and my friends all told me Happy Birthday when i woke up. One thing i really like about Hope is the people here. Everyone is really friendly and I already feel like I am apart of the Hope community. The people here are really welcoming and nice. Even when I am being served my food at lunch the servers are so friendly and always ask how my day is going. I am glad I am a part of this friendly environment!
