Awards and Recognition

Why I Love Hope
Some of Nate’s very best memories occurred at Hope. He was involved in many aspects of community life while at Hope, including Gospel Choir, Nykerk, the Pull and many intramurals (including finally winning the Frisbee Golf Championship after way too many hours of practice . . . way too many).
Outside the college
Nate has a couple of great kids. One of his bands took tours through Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico playing music. He loves athletics and really looks forward to attending Hope sporting events now that he is back in the area.
Other Interesting Facts
Nate met his wife the first week of college (it did, however, take her a full year to accept his invitation for a date). His blind-draw roommate is still his best friend. During his second semester of sophomore year, Nate and the aforementioned roommate took a break from college and traveled the western United States backpacking and camping. Nate actually registered for junior year classes from a pay phone at Arches National Park.
