    Career Services Office that assist with job search, interview skills, etc. Also, these services are available to alumni for life! They also host regional networking events (dinners, sporting events, etc.) several times a year for popular fields such as engineering, technology professionals, etc.

Students and Culture

What letter grade would you give the students/culture at your school?

    Being a religiously affiliated (Reformed Church in America) private school, the culture at Hope is generally conservative and mid-west, small town values tend to prevail. That said, Hope has worked very hard to increase diversity both in ethnicity and in experience. This has made Hope a more "worldly" place. Regardless, the campus culture is one where you can find "your people." The religious aspect can be as big or as little a piece of your experience as you decide and nothing is forced upon the students in terms of values.

    Some very new, some quite old. New buildings are state of the art. But old buildings aren't being renovated enough.

    Hope has been in a period of nearly constant construction for the past ten years. With that, many new facilities have come to campus. Some of the dorms are, of course, older, but have been kept up and renovated frequently to provide modern accommodations. In addition, many new academic buildings, performing arts center, and other facilities have allowed Hope to expand it's offerings nearly constantly.

    The Pull (massive tug of war contest)

    Competing in the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association, athletics is a big deal at Hope. Something in the neighborhood of 1 in every 5 students participates in some kind of Hope athletics. Another unique fact is that Hope has no national sororities or fraternities, but has several local chapters of each. These local societies have a capped membership, ensuring that no more than 20% of the student population is ever involved in Greek life. The outcome of that is that, while Greek life is a positive experience, enjoyed by some students, it's never so prevalent that it dominates social life at Hope.
