Winter Fantasia

Hey Everyone! 

I hope your week is going well. This past weekend Hope’s Student Activities Committee put on event called Winter Fantasia. It took place at the Amway Grand Plaza hotel in Grand Rapids. The hotel was absolutely beautiful. There was a ballroom for dancing, food set up in the lobby, a photo booth for fun pictures, and delectable drinks stationed through out the ballroom. I went to dinner at XO with some of my friends before the dance. I kind of felt like I was going to prom, but it was a lot more relaxed. Everyone looked so nice all dressed up. My friend Katie did my hair and I wore my prom dress from senior year. 

I really enjoyed my time at Winter Fantasia dancing with my friends was a total blast, plus we rode up and down the elevators for a while and did some exploring in the hotel. One of my highlights was getting our picture with President Bultman and his wife. They are some of the sweetest people! They even crammed into the photo booth with some students. Hope is truly blessed to have such loving people guide our college.

I’m so glad the Student Activities Committee hosted such a wonderful event. It definitely ranks in my top 5 favorite memories at Hope. I really would like to go again next year, and I cannot believe I missed out on it the past two years. If you come to Hope, you’ll definitely need to make sure you check out this awesome event!

Have a great week,
