Why I love Hope

Kristyn loves the students! Hope students are very engaged in their academics, the life of the college and each other. They step into leadership positions in organizations, offices and departments to bring the campus to life. As a staff member, Kristyn appreciates their drive, passion, dedication and the ability to get to know them and their stories.
