Hope alumni know that their relationships with the college and with each other do not end at graduation.

Alumni have proven generous with their time and advice to students and fellow graduates. Through lifelong learning and career development, relationships formed at Hope change lives both on campus and in communities everywhere. Tapping into the potential of this network is a powerful way to bring your career to life.

When you graduate with a Hope degree or complete at least 45 credits, you are officially a member of the Alumni Association. It’s free and an automatic part of your lifelong relationship with Hope. As a member, the college and alumni volunteers will work hard to keep you in touch with your inner Dutch through events, affinity connections and career resources.

You can stay connected and be an active member by updating your information, making plans to connect at a Hope event, referring a student and exploring ways you can get involved.
