We need alumni to keep Hope strong and vibrant.  Here are 10 ways you can support the college in your everyday life...
  1. Include Hope College in your prayers.

  2. Stay current on information about the college by reading News from Hope College and the Alumni e-newsletter, or use myHope. Set www.hope.edu/alumni as your homepage or as a favorite on your computer and check it regularly.

  3. Let us know how to communicate with you by updating your profile. Also let us know about changes in your life; such as a career change, milestone, or an award you have received.  You can post a class note here.

  4. Help make Hope better known in your area by speaking highly of the college and your experience here.  Wear Hope College attire, or put a Hope license plate holder on your car.

  5. Make Hope known to prospective students and families by communicating with the youth of your community and sharing with friends and family looking for colleges. Refer a student to admissions.

  6. Support the college financially by contributing to the Hope Fund or other special projects of interest.  Or refer potential supporters.  Let us know if we should contact an organization or individual to financially support Hope.

  7. Submit nominations for alumni awards, including the Distinguished Alumni Award and the Young Alumni Award.

  8. Visit campus during your class reunion, Homecoming, or special event.  Or come anytime—you are always welcome! 

  9. Attend events in your area, including alumni office sponsored events or arts and athletic events.  You can even volunteer to plan an event in your community.

  10. Offer to volunteer or provide leadership if called upon.   Such as assisting with career mentoring and placement for students and alumni by volunteering for the Career Resource Network.
