Hope College is stronger when families are engaged in the life of the college. We invite you to be part of our community while your student attends Hope. 

Whether you live nearby or thousands of miles away, there are many ways to be involved in the life of the college and serve as a resource for your student:

  • Summer Send-Off picnics
  • Orientation
  • Family Weekend
  • Parent e-newsletters
  • Volunteer opportunities

Our goal is to help you in play a supportive role while your student is enrolled at Hope. It is also important to connect with other families. This happens throughout the year at Hope events, and the Parents' Council serves you by fostering dialogue among parents, families and the college.
