I’m here right now on the campus of Hope College in Holland, Michigan, right on the shores of Lake Michigan. And it’s a Liberal Arts College of about 3000 students with a strong historical and current relationship with the Reform Church in America. It does have a strong religious identity – Christian identity. So, for students who are looking for that in their education this would be a great option. It’s a beautiful campus, great facilities, known for really strong science. Also, Performing Arts is great. There is a summer repertoire theatre here. So, Holland serves as a hub for the arts.
It’s not that far from Grand Rapids. It’s about 2 hours from Chicago and, again, you know, one of these Midwestern surprises. A beautiful, Liberal Arts college in a place that you wouldn’t necessarily expect, but certainly has the kind of campus that’s redolent of a Liberal Arts College in New England.
