Professional experience

Why I love Hope

What drew Theresa to Holland was its proximity to water and the atmosphere of the college town. The energy that drew her to Holland is the same one that brought her to apply at Hope College. What she enjoys most about working at Hope is the interaction with students. They offer a fresh perspective on life, instill humor into each day and keep her motivated to learn new things.
