Celebrate at Homecoming on October 3-6, 2013.

    On October 3-6, 2013, the tradition of Homecoming continues!  We look forward to celebrating Hope College and the relationships that form there with alumni, faculty, staff and students.

    Weekend highlights include:

    • A Resource Center serving as your Homecoming Hub for directions, answers to questions, tours of campus and an interactive Hope Scavenger Hunt where you and friends can explore some of Hope's world-class facilities and score some great prizes.

    • With Hope's small class sizes, there is room for you! Classes without Quizzes will give you the chance to attend a Hope class on Friday and see a favorite professor just as you remember them.  Maybe you'll even learn something new!

    • Experience Hope's Championship Athletics first hand with home volleyball, soccer and football games. Some sports will even host alumni games where you can get in on the action.

    • There will be two reunion events at Homecoming. One event will include the classes of 2003-2013 and another will be for the classes of 1988-2002. More details will be announced soon and volunteer groups will be formed to work on these events celebrating the 0, 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 year reunions.

    • We know you care about more than your class year.  In fact, we know you care more about the relationships you formed in activities like Chapel Choir, Greek Life, and other student groups, major or activities.  That's why Homecoming has plenty of space for informal get togethers and affinity events. Stay tuned to see which of your groups is getting together.

    • Celebrate Hope, Homecoming and the fall season at the Saturday afternoon Fall Fling BBQ.  Join alumni, faculty, staff and current students for a great time in the Pine Grove! 

    • Finish the weekend on Sunday basking in the stained glass light of Dimnent Chapel as campus ministries leads campus in the Homecoming Worship Service.  If you are around for the evening, check out The Gathering.
    Don't forget to book a room at a discounted rate and help spread the word. Schedule and registration details will be posted in the months to come.
