Kristin Diekevers started in Admissions in 2007 and has served in many roles from admissions representative to large-scale event planning to leading a group of recruiters and the student tour guide team.

As senior associate director of admission, Kristin leads our Campus Experience and Engagement team whose goal is to create opportunities, largely through on-campus visit experiences, to authentically connect prospective students to the Hope community as they consider calling Hope home for four years.


  • B.A., management and communication, Hope College, 2007

Why I Love Hope

Kristin believes that Hope is a place where challenge spurs growth in body, mind and spirit. She is inspired by the community: the people, the accomplishments, the compassion and the deep roots. She is proud to wear her alma mater’s apparel and get the not-infrequent “Go Hope!” from complete strangers.

Outside the College

Kristin most loves experiencing new things and new places with family and friends, whether in her own backyard or far from home. When traveling, Kristin, her husband, Joe (an ’06 Hope grad), and their two children are happiest near friendly people, nature and water.

She likes being active: dancing, playing basketball and volleyball, running, walking, and hiking then cooling down with a good book (especially historical fiction, Brit lit or a good ol‘ rom com). Kristin is a lifelong learner, so any time she can make it to a theater or dance performance, concert or insightful lecture or watch a well-done documentary, she’s happy.
