Hope College

2013 Pre-College Conference for Faculty/Staff
August 22-26, 2013



Schedule of Events

Thursday, August 22

Special Note from Public Relations: We are seeking to update our file of portrait quality photos of faculty and staff. A professional photographer will be in the DeWitt Lounge on Thursday August 22 from 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Please avail yourself of this opportunity during one of the breaks or during a free moment. This will only take a few minutes of your time while benefitting you and your department immensely.

If you have not had a new photo taken at Hope, or if you would like to have an updated photograph this year, we ask that you plan to have your photo taken during this opportunity. Faculty request photos on a weekly basis for various professional uses. Please have yours taken so it's available whenever you need it. Thank you!
