Hope College Reviews
I will say that I wish it was a little more diverse and accepting to people who aren't white, Christian, and able-bodied and neurotypical. I have seen struggles with how disabled students are treated, as well as neurodivergent students, which is slightly disappointing since the College preaches acceptance of all. But, those issues have been in select corners of Hope, and there are many places and people who want to help!
Overall, I'm grateful for my opportunity to be at Hope, but I always think there's room for growth.
With regards to academics, I also fee well served. I have been able to put the principles I pick up from classes into practice through internships and by studying off campus.
I do acknowledge that Hope is not as diverse as I would have liked it to be, especially as someone from six thousand miles away but I think the college is making effort to grow and I am looking forward to positive change.
In all, I think Hope college was the perfect place for me even though it has areas where it genuinely struggles.
