This past Saturday was not a typical day here at Hope College.
Saturday was the 117th Pull competition between the classes of 2017 and 2018.
As a freshman I knew what the Pull was about. I had read about it, experienced the hype, witnessed the intensity building as rally banners were hung, practices started and the rope was run around campus. However, all of that did not come near to preparing me for watching the actual event.
I do not know how the Pull team does it. For three hours they push themselves to the limit. The Pull is truly something that you can only experience at Hope–there is nothing else like it. The intensity of it was overwhelming and so cool to watch!
