Review Hope College
Greek Life is amazing! I'm now on the inside, but I was on the outside for my freshman and half of my sophomore year. Greek Life is a blast and teaches you so many things about leadership, working with people. Yes there is partying a lot, but you gain an amazing community. You get your sisters or brothers in your organization, but Greek Life is also just one big family. A lot of non-Greeks don't like Greek Life, so that makes Greek Life band together more and support each other. Each organization has an on-campus Greek cottage which are usually really nice, but not everyone in the organization lives there (usually only 5-10 people). Most organizations also have off-campus houses that they continually have from year to year.
I loved getting placed with my roommate. Housing does a great job to make sure students are comfortable. It is important to note that housing does what it can but can't always fix the issues. The residential life staff are really fantastic. They go through a great training program and they all really love what they are doing. I loved living in Lichty my freshman year as it was smaller and a lot less drama than other dorms can have. I loved the community that was present when I lived in Vorhees. The RD and RA's there were fantastic!
Hope College was an excellent choice for me! I love the experiences that I have had, the friends that I've made, and the education that I am receiving. I have numerous opportunities to grow in my faith, whether it's bible studies, chapel services, or other campus ministries events. The sporting events are fun to go to, especially basketball. It's so fun to sing, "Oh when the Dutch go marching in" all together and cheer our dutchmen to victory. My professors are really helpful and have my best interest in mind. Hope College has been one of the best decisions that I have ever made.
