Distinctive Hope: See you Soon!

The closing weeks of summer always carry a mix of excitement and anticipation as the college prepares for the students’ return. The award-winning Hope campus (please see “Campus Scene”) stands ready as an oasis of tranquil beauty in this image taken in the latter half of July. Actually, the campus stands more than ready. With the premature end of on-campus instruction in March and the months of stay-home, stay-safe that followed, it has been far too empty for far too long. It needs students — and faculty and staff — in the same way that a stage needs players to have life and meaning. Members of the Classes of ’21 through ’24, it needs you. You are missed, you are eagerly awaited and we are looking forward to seeing you in this scene soon.
