  3. The End!

    Posted by Caylee Schweppe

    And just like that my semester abroad is coming to a close. In nine days I’ll be sitting in my house in Geneva, Illinois with my family who I haven’t seen for four and a half months. The best word to describe how I’m feeling at this point is content. I’m happy in Ecuador and … Continue reading The End!

    Posted by Eva Dean Folkert

    President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed it a national holiday in 1914, and it didn’t take long thereafter for Hallmark Cards to make it a national celebration.

Consumers will spend close to $24 billion on flowers, cards, jewelry and other bric-a-brac … Continue reading The Mother of All Holidays

An immense congrats to my brother from another mother @tmw519 on graduating and earning his B.A. from @hopecollege today. Getting to know you over the past 4 years has been an absolute blast - from meeting you during your visit day and watching @pollykhorn nail you in the face with a snowball to staying up late nights in our apartment studying for our Management courses together and everything in between.
Being able to call you a friend and a brother is a privilege I will never take for granted. I know you'll have amazing success down in Florida. Love you - Miami isn't ready for you baby.
Long live Dutch Chocolate! ⚓️🍫👨🏾‍🎓

  2. Walk This Way To Challenge Borders

    Posted by Eva Dean Folkert

    The project, “Challenging Borders: Displaced People,” has much it wants to teach you about people who have been displaced due to immigration, climate change, the refugee crisis, and mass incarceration. And the disciplines of art and English and science and psychology and communication all converged to do so, crossing interdisciplinary boundaries in order to challenge you about the ways you view borders — domestic or international — and the people who are affected by them.

  11. Linda LeFever Dykstra: A Song from Her Heart to Theirs

    Just call her diva. That’s what most of her students call her. But she prefers a lower case “d” and in a smaller-sized font. Nothing showy, or needy, or high profile as the definition of the word usually conjures, but just diva in a good, compact way. Like this: diva.

    “Do you think your college prepared you to succeed in law school?” It seemed pretty clear the interviewer from my top choice law school did not believe Hope College prepared me for a competitive environment. You may not know it yet, but Hope is not well-known outside Michigan. Wearing “HOPE” sweatshirts, since graduation, led to … Continue reading Alumni Feature: Tim Fry

  18. Dr. Tom Ludwig: Teaching Psychology, Using Technology, Embracing Hope

    When you grow up as the youngest of 12 children, with parents who retire when you are 14 years old; when all the men in your family are expected to be pastors or professors and when the seminary you are attending implodes in controversy; when the start of your teaching career parallels the explosion in personal computing, you would no doubt look back at each milestone and memory as influencers that tell a revelatory story of how you got to where you are today.
