About the Alumni Association

The Hope College Alumni Association is made up of over 30,000 alumni who live in every state and over 80 countries. The Association is governed by the members of the Alumni Board of Directors, who are selected to represent a broad cross-section of alumni.

Everyone who graduates from Hope or who completed 45 credit hours is a member of the Association. There are no dues, no special requirements. We encourage you to be an active member by letting us know where you are and what you are up to, coming back to campus for reunions and other special events, and by attending and hosting alumni events in your community.

The Office of Alumni and Parent Relations oversees the Alumni Association and the Alumni Board of Directors and is responsible for carrying out all alumni related events.
