Hope College

Hope College

There are a lot of really great things about Hope College. It's right on the Main Green, so all my classes are really close. The Blue Room and the Campus Market are right next door, so if I'm running late in the morning or need a late night snack, it takes just a couple seconds to go get food. Hope also has really big rooms, and is a smaller freshman unit, which I think contributes to a better sense of community.

Built in 1822 and named after Hope Brown Ives, Hope College is the oldest residence hall on campus. In 1959, Hope College was reconstructed into the building that stands today. A four story brick building on the Main Green, the building's location is often considered amongst the best of all the residence halls. Hope College is currently used as a second-year building.
