Overnight Visit

Join us to experience the best of Hope’s campus on a Thursday or Sunday evening during the academic year.

An Overnight Visit is the best way to see what campus life at Hope is all about. Providing the greatest insights into campus life at Hope is our goal. We offer this experience on the evenings prior to our Anchor Days (Thursday and Sunday evenings) for admitted seniors only.

Here's some of what you can expect from your Overnight Visit:

  • Explore award-winning downtown Holland, only a couple blocks from campus
  • Cheer on Hope athletes at our state-of-the-art athletic facilities
  • Join current students for a round of frisbee golf
  • Hang out in the residence halls with Hope students: Can you picture yourself here?
  • Experience the Gathering (Sunday evening Chapel service)
  • Spend some time with current students in the Bultman Student Center
  • Watch the sunset over Lake Michigan
