Hope International University Reviews
I liked Hope International as it was an extremely friendly community. It is a Christian school that enforces religious class which is totally understandable, but I absolutely loved how the religion professors did not force you to interpret or read the Bible a certain way, but they would mention ways you may or may not think of the texts. They let you think on your own, but still did a great job at teaching the material. However, administration is a bit messy as they seem to be extremely unorganized. You really need to keep track of papers and submissions as they can get forgotten about or lost!
Since it’s a small private school you really get to have a closer relationship with your professors, counselors, advisors and fellow classmates. Even during this pandemic Hope has done their best to make learning easy and fun!
Ironically, Hope International University lives up to it's name. For students, like myself, who come from low-income areas Hope is a great place to turn too. They provide scholarships for all their students! The campus is small but as a result of that the community is safe and friendly, a home away from home. Whether you're a Christian or not the relationships created with students, faculty, and professors goes beyond the classroom and prepares you for life, your career, and a source of encouragement for difficulties life throws your way. It challenges you academically and the professors aren't there for the paycheck only, they are passionate scholars who desire their students to grow academically, so they can become scholars as well. Hope successfully lives up to its name.
