In the years your student attends Hope College, we hope you, too, will be a part of the life of Hope.

The Parent Relations Program wants to connect you with other parents and with opportunities to be involved. Our Parents' Council serves you by fostering dialogue among parents, families and the college. They also act as ambassadors to promote the college and support its mission. Whether you are nearby or hundreds of miles away, there are many ways to be involved.

Highlights of the Parent Program include Summer Send Off Picnics, Orientation, Family Weekend, the Parent E-Newsletter, Volunteer Opportunities, Parent Access Chats and many other great ways that parents can play a supportive role while their son or daughter is enrolled at Hope.
