Hope and Holland have shared a common history ever since the Reverend A.C. Van Raalte founded both more than 170 years ago. As the town grew and diversified, Hope, too, expanded. Its original “Five Acres” blossomed to 200, and ten students to more than 3,000. Van Vleck Hall, built in 1857, is just a block from the Pelletron particle accelerator on campus today. In the 21st century, Hope is a distinguished four-year liberal arts college that effectively combines academic excellence with a vibrant Christian faith. This supportive and welcoming college attracts students from all over the country and around the globe. With a student-to-faculty ratio of 11:1, Hope’s internationally recognized teacher-scholars engage students in collaborative, graduate school-style research in all fields of study.
