Window to Hope’s History: Timeless and Timely

Although from an earlier era, this image is timeless in the ways that matter: students enjoying one another’s company in the Pine Grove — one of the most iconic and beloved spaces on campus. The year in which it was taken, 1968, also shares a link to the present not visible: It was the last time that Hope was able to hold tuition steady prior to the fall of 2020 and this year. As explained in the preceding story, when the newly launched Hope Forward initiative is fully funded, the students who gather in the future will join their forebears of even earlier decades in not paying tuition at all.
