Hi! I am currently going to be a sophomore so these are my thoughts on Hope. If you come from a very diverse high school like I did it will be difficult to adjust to the change that this school is very white. While I did have some racist encounters with students it was not many. But I will say that this school does indeed care about its students. I had a problem with my first res hall and actually was able to move to a new dorm and building relatively fast. Their concern for me was amazing and the move was def a step up and made me enjoy the college experience even more. If you are a POC or any minority I def recommend you do the Phelps Scholars Program. You get to live in Scott Hall (which is where I ended up moving too) and it is just amazing. It is probably the most diverse dorm on campus because everyone who is in there are people who come from different backgrounds. So I def recommend you live there if you are used to a diverse background. I wish I had more space to type....

This school sucks your creative energy leaving you a depressed, husk of a person. This is only the case if you're confident, smart, and willing to have difficult conversations. Seriously, if you're black, latino, trans, gay, or even a smart, cis-gendered male avoid this place and the plague. Honestly, you're better off going your local community college.

Attended with goal of matriculating into medical school. Did that and so much more. Forged my faith, met my wife, played in several bands, recorded an album and made life long friendships. It is an excellent school in many fields. Noteworthy is that is ranks 4th in the US for NSF grants behind Stanford, U of M and one other school, MIT I believe. And only 10 minutes from Lake Michigan. What is not to love.
