While the college does not require personal visits to campus by prospective students, it does strongly recommend them. Students and parents are encouraged to visit the admissions office — where campus tours, class visits and faculty conferences can be arranged.
A Visit Day provides a more structured campus visit than an individual visit, but still provides the flexibility to create a day that best suits a prospective student’s needs. Activities include campus tours, class visits, chapel service, student panel discussions, financial aid presentations, lunch in the dining hall and academic information sessions with Hope faculty.
Visitors should meet at 8:30 a.m. in the Maas Conference Center, at the corner of 11th Street and Columbia Avenue. Pre-registration is preferred, and can be arranged by calling 616-395-7850 or online at www.hope.edu/admissions/visit.
Participation is free. A complimentary lunch is provided for students and parents wishing to eat lunch in the dining hall.
