Conventional wisdom says that a repeat customer signals a good experience, but that’s not really an appropriate model to use for a college (although Hope welcomes students who have left and return!).  In the end, it’s more meaningful that many parents who attended Hope are happy to see their children do the same.  Pictured are 10 of this year’s third- through sixth- New Generational Students, a fraction of the 117 generational freshmen or transfers newly enrolled at Hope this year.  From left to right are:  
Row 1, Hannah Bredeweg (third), Abigail Bache (third), Elizabeth Duistermars (fourth) and Amelia Waalkes (third); Row 2, Dominick Byrne (third), Caleb Hoekstra (sixth), Gabriel DeJongh (third), Garrett Borgman (third), Thomas Hoffman (fifth) and Brennan Church (third).
