At Hope College, we know that how we lead is how we live: with passion, curiosity and an anchored conviction to serve the world through our gifts.
It’s no secret – the best way to get to know Hope is to spend time on our campus. Our goal is to create a memorable visit experience in-person and online that will help you decide if Hope is the right fit for you.
College has gotten too expensive. Hope College is doing something about it. Our long-term ambition is that every single student who comes through Hope receives tuition fully-funded up front. Graduates will then pay it forward: commit to donating to Hope College so future students can have the same transformational experience.
