Hope College Reviews
I am an international student. In Hope College, it seems like they do really care whether or not you are in Hope College! The school tries to make your life and transition to USA comfortable and smooth. People are so nice here in Holland MI. Because it is a smaller school, there are lots of opportunity but still big enough to have connections and make networks. We have a great science department and our Chemistry is one of the best among the liberal arts college. There are lots of opportunity for research too. There is an open door policy for professors so you can go in and ask anytime! Also our school is a dry campus and we take pride in that!
What I loved about Hope College is that it's a small campus so you are able to recognize the other undergrads in your class which makes it much easier to approach them outside of class because they know your face as well. It is a Christian School so it is a dry campus and the parties are off campus. I love how profesors care about you as an individual and about your success. I love how there is a program for incoming freshmen that helps promote diversity. Coming in as a minority, I wasn't sure I was going to be able to make friends because of my differences with other people but the Phelps Scholars Program helped me become friends with International students and people from all over the US.
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.
