Life in Scott Hall

Phelps Scholars spend their first year in Scott Hall, one of Hope’s 11 residence halls. 

Sense of Community

Living in community becomes the Phelps Scholars’ “real-life laboratory” for practicing what they learn in the classroom. In Scott Hall, they form a strong network of relationships and expand their worldview by getting to know people from many different backgrounds. 

“I made the right decision.  Joining the program has given me a home away from home.”

Hall Activities and Social Gatherings

In addition, Resident Assistants (RAs) offer social and educational programs for Scott Hall residents.

“An RA is in charge of creating community in the hall. I'm there to make sure my residents are connected to each other and to the campus resources they need.” — Claudia, from Holland, Michigan
