Why I love Hope
The people. From the moment she stepped on campus for a visit as a prospective student, the people are what made Hope special and that is still true today. (And it doesn't hurt that it's just a few miles from Lake Michigan!)
Outside the College
Lindsey loves spending time with her husband and sons traveling, boating and checking things off of their "bucket" list of iconic sporting events and venues. She also enjoys running and DIY projects at home.
