Change happens all the time. i

As humans w e dan't realize the small changes that happen day to day, but w e can see same af the largest changes on the horizon well before w e approach them. The 2 0 0 4 2 0 0 5 school year at Hope College turned out to be one of those years. With the demolition of the old Lincoln school, the building of the M a r t h a Miller Center and the construction of the DeVos Fieldhouse, Columbia and Fairbanks Avenues showed the obvious change happening on campus— the increase of campus acreage by 40%. But change appeared in that of the class of 2 0 0 8 , the freshmen, who topped enrollment numbers, filling housing to the brim. The incoming class of 2 0 0 9 , larger than 2 0 0 8 , sparked the decision to expand Cook Hall to allow for the increase in enrollment. In this, Hope is literally becoming BIGGER T H A N THE B O X . The number of students has grown so much that Hope has felt the pushing on the walls of the old box." The development of 2

more property is making Hope larger than it has ever been before, allowing for better facilities, especially for the Communication Department, Multicultural Life, International Education, Kinesiology, and competitive sports. But in the period of improvement and growth, w e look back at the 2 0 0 4 2 0 0 5 school year and wonder whether Hope will maintain the atmosphere it is so well known for. Throughout the year, the Milestone has taken a look at how the people of Hope are changing and reforming the box in which w e live. O n the horizon, w e see Hope College and the huge changes that are happening and look to see how w e will shape those changes. As the yearbook of Hope College, w e believe documenting a year is important so w e can look back at our experiences and see the uniqueness of them as well as our contribution to the molding of Hope College growing




Student Life at Hope is more than get-togethers and events, it's a way of life. Hope prides itself on presenting student's with just about every opportunity under the sun, and then some. This truly showed this year when Hope's Social Activities Committee was voted the best Student Activities Program in the Midwest by the National Association of Campus Activities. Hope Students take great pride in offering and participating in over 6 0 organizations and activities outside of the classroom. There is something at Hope for everyone, the opportunities are endless. The 2004-2005 School year provided many of the traditional events that Hope students have come to love, such as The Pull and Nykerk, won by 2 0 0 7 and 2008 respectively. The year also offered some new twists on events such as Vegas Night, which provided o Texas Hold-em poker table, and Spring Fling, which introduced a mechanical riding bull for the first time. It was also a time for departure as Gospel Choir saw the ending of C.J. Grier's time at Hope College. Overall, student activities at Hope have proven to be in such abundance, they are bigger than the box.

A DAY TO REMEMBER by Steven Hoack

O n the a f t e r n o o n of O c t o b e r 2, 2004, the s o p h o m o r e class of 2007 faced off against the f r e s h m e n class of 2008 in the 107th P U L L . Pullers, Moralers, and spectators alike k n e w they were in for quite a s h o w once the rope was reeled in. Heave after heave, and strain after strain, b o t h Even Year and O d d Year showed their tenacity. T h e intense a t m o s p h e r e and excitement could be felt on b o t h sides of the Black River, judging by the capacity crowds c o m p o s e d of parents, friends, and Pull Alumni. A f t e r an

early stalemate on the rope, the s o p h o m o r e s slowly but surely pulled away. W h e n the final measurements were made th ree hours later, the class of 2007 was swimming in the river, after winning by a margin of 7 feet 6 inches. This O d d Year victory boosted their win total to 36. However, Even Year still remains on t o p of the all-time list with 52 wins. A f t e r this hard f o u g h t battle f r o m both teams, it was easy to see w h y this annual event stands as the oldest college tradition in America.

This long-standing tradition is one of the most popular at H o p e College, celebrating the competition between freshman and sophomore w o m e n in song, play, and oration. Using sparkling props and powerful dynamics, the freshman song w o m e n captivated their audience with their version of "Razzle Dazzle," f r o m the musical "Chicago." N e x t the graduating class of 2008 acted out in "Gilligan's Island," a unique spin on the favorite sitcom. The colorful set, energetic and laughable characters, combined with a dance sequence dazzled the crowd full of students, parents, and alumni. T o t o p it off, orator C o u r t n e y Vredevoogd's speech asked her audience

to explore what it means to "Break the current." In their play, "Jane Blonde 07," the class of 2007 solved the mystery of stolen anchor with the help of a high profile hero, and a few other familiar H o p e icons, including president James Bultman. T h e s o p h o m o r e song was a medley of some 60s hits by the Supremes including, "Stop, in the N a m e of Love." It was an oddsome performance! T h e 2007 orator was Lara Wagner. Lara spoke of "A N e w Type of Engagement" and challenged her audience to undertake a greater understanding of communication. At the end of this phenomenal event, the class of 2008 was awarded the coveted N y k e r k cup, but the participants and audience members agree that they will continue t o look forward to the N y k e r k tradition.

jart of tradition by oamaro W e b b H o p e College strives on traditions, and to be a part of any one of them— whether it is N y k e r k , the Pull, or Homecoming— is a great opportunity. H o m e c o m i n g at H o p e is about celebrating the c o m m u n i t y that we have here, and that's shown through the alumni that come back to campus and through the many students and faculty members that look forward to and participate in the weekend's activities. I have always been a part of the H o m e c o m i n g celebration since my freshman year, but being on H o m e c o m i n g C o u r t and being named H o m e coming Q u e e n exceeded my other experiences by far. Being on C o u r t with such amazi manyJ of them m yJ Ogood friends, was great. T o hear my name called over the loud speakers at the football stadium, to receive a beautiful crown and personalized w o o d e n shoes, and to see so many people cheering and excited was an experience in its own; it definitely was an adrenaline rush. 14

H o m e c o m i n g is o n e of t h o s e few times when the campus as a whole seems to c o m e together. Every year it is amazing at h o w the whole campus seems to r e m e m b e r that they can all play f o r the same team. College can be a stressful place, and H o m e c o m i n g weekend provides an o p p o r t u n i t y f o r all to relax and have a good time, celebrating the c o m m u n i t y at H o p e . An energy exists on campus that weekend, and a m u l t i t u d e of groups celebrate all things orange and blue. A select g r o u p of lucky seniors had the h o n o r of being on t h e 2004 H o m e c o m i n g C o u r t . F o r many, the favorite m e m o r v of the

whole experience was the screams of excitement f r o m the crowd and the other 8 people on the C o u r t when the King and Q u e e n were announced. Memories such as these will be carried with m a n y in the coming years. These memories are ones that will create smiles f r o m old friends, and ones that will carry pals t h r o u g h those times when they are missed terribly. H o m e c o m i n g is a time where friends can make those kinds of memories, so students can look back at their own graduation... and smile.

Sunday, May 8, 2005 marked the o n e - h u n d r e d fortieth c o m m e n c e m e n t activities in the life of the college. T w o baccalaureate services were held in the morning, at 9:30 and 11:30. Reverend David Bast, a broadcast minister and president of W o r d s of H o p e , gave a s e r m o n entitled "Living Constructively." Bast challenged the graduating class t o r e m e m b e r the words of the Apostle Paul that "knowledge p u f f s up, but love builds up." T h e Chapel C h o i r and college organist H u w Lewis provided special music for the services.

and was c o m p l e m e n t e d by warm and sunny weather. Reverend Paul Boersma provided the address entitled " F r o m G e n e r a t i o n to Generation," calling the generation to change the world f o r the better. Boersma suggested that the graduates should strive to affect this change and not be remembered for the a m o u n t of m o n e y they accrue or the a m o u n t of things they produced, but because of the way they lived. C o m m e n c e m e n t was enjoyed by graduates, family, and friends, and was also a w o n d e r f u l time for remembering a call to greatness and looking onward to a new beginning.

uoard of Education L r / r / c o ' Tssues oymposium The founder of General Motors, William Durant, once said that we should "Forget past mistakes. Forget failures. Forget everything except what you going to do now and do it." This is an amazingly accurate portrayal of the American mindset when it comes to history. Collectively, the nation largely tries to live in the now and simply dismisses past problems as being those faced by previous generations. It is as if most Americans would simply say, "race relations? Didn't that end with the end of slavery? Therefore, it was refreshing this fall when, within the context of the so-called H o p e "bubble," the campus was reminded just h o w fresh the w o u n d s of racism are. Cheryl and Linda Brown, whose father successfullv sued the Topeka Board of Education to

desegregate the school system, spoke of their famous struggle fifty years ago to attend a school with white children. Clearly, the w o u n d s caused by this kind of hatred and separation do not heal overnight, they take time. Fifty years later, the w o u n d s still fester. During the same weekend. Rev. Peter G o m e s spoke of the difficulties in dealing with the past. H e challenged the campus to be more open minded and loving and to remember that changing people's hearts take time. These are words that we should all consider hearing even if we have f o r g o t t e n a time when our fellow men and w o m e n had to drink f r o m separate drinking fountains and could not attend the same schools.

Many different activities were rented to entertain the students, including such favorites as Bouncy Boxing, the Purple People Eater

O r e g o n Dream Child performed, as well as returning band Farewell to February, co-sponsored with WTFIS. The return of P U S H cart races drew a huge crowd.

from the red-eyed beast. Some students seemed to feel the bull's pain. Junior Erin L'Hotta, showing her forearms, explained "I still have bruises from riding it." Despite the liability, the bull drew great attention. As for the air-brush tattooing, it attracted much attention and became quite the talk of the day. Some students inked up with, small art such as hearts and stars, while others went for the tough guy approach with barbed wire.

H e played coed and m e n ' s volleyball, as well as men's basketball. H e said, "IM's are awesome. It's good competition, you get to have a sweet team, and just have a lot of f u n . " While it is all f u n and games, competition does exist within the IM program, with everyone aiming for the coveted t o p prize of an IM C h a m p i o n s h i p t-shirt awarded at the end of an IM season.

For the second year, a "Change Challenge" was issued to everybody who was involved in Dance Marathon. They gave everyone a Ziploc bag and asked them to fill it up with as much change as they could in the week before the Marathon. People took the challenge and ran with it! Once the change had been counted and rolled by the finance committee at the Marathon, they attempted to carry it to the car in order to deposit it. With two people lifting using all of their might, the bag full of change would barely budge.

Spring Break Mission Trips


by Katie Burkhardt and Jason Cash O n Saturday, February 19th, H o p e College students kicked off second semester with Winter Fantasia, a long-standing tradition which took place at the Amway Grand in Grand Rapids. Fantasia is a formal dance described by Student Activities C o m m i t t e e Director, Sarah Burns, as "a rockin' good time." Overall the event was "classy" said Burns. T h e food, the music, and the company were all the finest quality. T h e music differed f r o m h o m e c o m i n g in the absence of a swing band, and although this made the songs of the evening strictly chosen by the DJ, requests were all he played. The food for the event was "really t o o nice to eat," said Burns. According to S A C director Katie Randa, f o o d favorites were "Chocolate covered strawberries that [were]

embossed, all edible." T h e estimated price for each individual strawberry was estimated at over thirty dollars. D u e to such extreme popularity in recent years, including this year, S A C t o o k several precautions to accommodate the event. It was held in the largest ball-room the Amway had to offer. This year's attendance was well over 500 students strong. Conveniently, f o r students w h o were conccrned about transportation to the Grand Rapids location, there was a bus available free of charge. Overall, S A C members and students alike agree that the 2005 W i n t e r Fantasia dance was "a big success."

shaking it The ballroom of the Grand Rapids Amway Grand Hotel and Conference Center was decorated beautifully. Servers hustled by, arranging and supplying many delectable treats. Winter Fantasia was made complete not only by the wondrous food (which included the ever-craved chocolate-covered strawberries) but also by the multitude of Hope students dressed to impress. The men in their suits and ladies in formal gowns and fancy dresses looked spectacular as they had fun out on the dance floor. The disc

with the unison movement of the crowd. All the while, people were making new friendships while others further developed their current relationships. As the night wore on, the crowd dwindled and people filed out. Groups and couples gathered their things, donned their coats, and headed back out into the bitter Michigan winter that awaited them, leaving behind the ballroom and the night in its splendors. As they left, they took with them photos and memories that will last for years. Winter Fantasia

It's an opportunity to meet new people and try a hand in the world of acting. Each semester directing classes need students to perform in their class projects, which were anywhere from 10-30 minute scenes. Auditions occurred once or twice each semester and have been open to anyone. M a n y students enjoy getting involved in such a great program. Student Life

by NoahDavid Lein With a cast of dozens, an even larger crew and a complete orchestra, this Fall many departments merged to undertake "Candide," an ambitious musical production based on Voltaire's signature novel, adapted by renowned composer Leonard Bernstein. Together, the Art Department of H o p e College tackled what has been called the "most impossible of all possible musicals" for its technical difficulty and interpretive ambiguity. Director J o h n Tammi discovered part of the challenge was that as the protagonist Candide travels the globe, the production must create the atmosphere of each specific location. While searching for his lost love C u n e gonde, Candide witnesses acts of war, radical religious

violence, thievery and much more. H e doubts the optimistic teachings of his t u t o r . Dr. Pangloss, w h o declares we live in the "best of all possible worlds." An ensemble of actors b r o u g h t each magical world to life, portraying everything f r o m Tunisian galley slaves to red sheep f r o m the golden land of El D o r a d o . U n d o u b t e d l y , "Candide" was one of the grandest undertakings in the H o p e College Theatre D e p a r t m e n t history. Elements f r o m all aspects of musical theatre came together and created an experience that turned potential impossibility into a spectacle of Voltaire's literary wit and Berstein's musical brilliance.

aradise, onger..." In spring of 2005, H o p e College t o o k on one of the w o r k s of playwright Kevin Kling, "The Ice Fishing Play." At first glance, this show, set in rural Minnesota, was about ice fishing; but its deceivingly simple appearance held subtle but s t r o n g undercurrents of large themes. As the cast and crew began to explore the text m o r e thoroughly, they uncovered a w o r k grounded in human relationships, and explored h o w we as h u m a n beings deal with personal loss and life in general. T h o u g h director J o h n T a m m i had previously taken on such large-scale shows as "Candide," this show contained a depth that no one had been pre-

pared for. The play relied heavily on storytelling, an aspect that the actors spent countless hours working on. Kling is a master storyteller himself, and H o p e was honored to bring b o t h him and the Guthrie Theater of Minnesota to campus. Kling performed his one-man show "Freezing Paradise" to a delighted audience; the H o p e community was able to not onlv see his play performed bv our student actors, but experience his own work as well. It gave the director, cast, and crew insight into the writing of the play, as well as a stronger appreciation for those that endure a n o r t h e r n Minnesota winter.

What has three legs, a plastic stick, and is afraid of cars?—A deer with a prosthetic leg. Oodles of hilarious (and semi-hilarious) m o ments such as this were present at the m o n t h l y show of H o p e ' s own improvisational comedy team: VanderProv. O n c e a m o n t h a hoard of students and c o m m u n i t y members filed into Wichers Auditorium in N y k e r k to enjoy the imp r o m p t u comedic scenarios that Vanderprov's nine members, three of w h o m were added after this year's tryouts, presented to the audience. Senior members J B Wernlund, Louis Ford, N i c k Van Slett, Juniors A n n e Bast, Ryan Beuschel, and J o n a t h a n White, and Freshmen Calista Peterson, Jeff Ambrose, and Erika Oglesby tickled the audience with regular hilarity. The audience knew to expect a good time with every show

lasting about an h o u r and consisting of improvisational games similar to the popular T V show "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" T h e group met weekly to familiarize themselves with the games and to build group rapport to improve stage chemistry. Early in the year they had a joint show with the professional improvisational comedy team " C o m e d y Sportz" f r o m Chicago, and, after performing with them, they were able to have a w o r k s h o p with the pro team to learn tricks of the trade f r o m some of the best in the business. VanderProv evidently learned lots because the shows were able to keep the audience laughing f r o m their first show of the year to their final, traditional Spring-fling evening show—quite a noteable year for VanderProv!

"1 really liked the opening," said Sona Smith, a participant in the first act, a dance to the song "Free Your M i n d " by En Vogue. "I t h o u g h t that was very powerful." T h e audience witnessed a comical reenactment of a J apanese folktale, "Aka Onisan to A o Onisan," enjoyed Russian poetry speaking of the "Motherland," and watched an African-American step show. Dancers and performers took their music f r o m all over the w o r l d — f r o m French love songs to Indian Bollywood pop to the distinctive Kenyan sound of the "The N i x o n Administration." T h e show included 15 different performances and highlighted traditional attire f r o m the Middle East, Latin America, Africa, Asia, and Europe. Participants were members of multicultural groups, such as H A P A or the Black Student Union, international students or simply members of the student b o d y w h o wanted to get involved. "Being an American, this introduced me to a lot of new music. It makes me want to listen to more Hispanic music," said Lindsay Strahle, a participant in "Bailalo," a Latin American salsa dance. "It makes me realize that there's a lot m o r e out there and helped me to broaden my horizons. I got to meet some great people," she said thoughtfully. Students and other members of the audience, which included high school students, m e m b e r s of the faculty and the Holland c o m m u n i t y , could appreciate the time and effort that went into bringing Images together. "There were skits and song and even dance, a little bit of everything. It was great that so many students could get involved," said Samara Webb.

Vegas Night is one of the biggest events that the Social Activities Committee sponsors. This year. Dance Marathon held a fundraiser in the form of a Texas Hold 'Em tournament. Due to the increasing populatiry of this form of poker, the event was an instant hit.

O t h e r games available included Blackjack, Roulette, Big Six Wheel, and Bingo.

Playing these games earned tickets, which could be used to towards prizes. Students entered to win the coveted t o p prize—a weekend getaway to Chicago! Some of the other prizes awarded were an iPod M P 3 player, a mountain bike, gift certificates for coffee or dinner and a C D player.

D e c e m b e r at H o p e College would just not be the same it not for the annual C h r i s t mas Vespers services that take place each year at D i m n e n t Chapel. This year was no exception. T h e annual services (for which tickets usually sell out) typically consist primarily of musical selections prepared by H o p e ' s musical ensembles, with lessons f r o m scripture and even poetry interspersed t h r o u g h o u t . It is a time for the Holland c o m m u n i t y to reflect on the real reason for the Christmas season. Director of Choral Activities and Vespers Chair, Brad Richm o n d , noted "It's a lot of hard work, but in the

end it makes for a really enjoyable experience." This was a very special year for the Vespers services because in addition to being recorded for compact disc, they were also taped by W G V U for a special television broadcast and D V D . Although this surely required a greater effort on the part of the event's producers, it also meant that this year's services will live on forever. Many thanks are due to the hundreds of students, faculty members, and volunteers that participated in and made the 2004 Christmas Vespers such a special event for the H o l land and H o p e College c o m m u n i t y .

Vespers has been a tradition for 6 4 years on campus and includes four spectacular performances. A broad spectrum of talented Hope College musicians gathered on Saturday December 4th and Sunday December 5th, 2004, for the annual sold out concert. Many students participated, including members of the College Chorus and Chapel Choir. Also participating were individual organists, the Hope Symphonette. Brass Ensemble, and flute choir, who performed seasonal pieces at the celebration, ringing in the Christmas spirit. The Vespers tradition began on December 7th, 1941, which was only a few short hours after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

How can a small school" be growing bigger than the box?' The better question would be. What is not growing at Hope?' From ongoing campus development through construction and renovation, to higher standards being placed on the academic field, Hope College is becoming increasingly more selective academically, and people are taking notice. Hope College enrollment is at an all time high, and the demand tor a small liberal-arts college with excellent academics is highly regarded. Departments at Hope are on the rise as well. Never before in the college's history has it added so much academic space to the school at once. From the newly dedicated Peale Science Center, to the soon to be completed DeVos Fieldhouse and Martha Miller Center for Global Communication, academic space is at an all time high. The Martha Miller Center will house the Communication Department, Modern & Classical Language Department, as well as the offices of international education and multicultural life. The DeVos Fieldhouse will play home not only to various sporting events, but also to the Kinesiology Department.

In addition, H o p e College is again listed a m o n g the top half of the schools named "National Liberal Arts Colleges."

H o p e College has always had a reputation as a great science school, but H o p e ' s reputation grew tremendously with the opening and dedication of the completed Peale Science C e n t e r . T h e final renovations on old Peale were completed over the s u m m e r and the official dedication of Peale Science C e n t e r on O c t o b e r 8, 2004 sealed H o p e ' s impact on the scientific c o m m u n i t y . A r m e d with a state-ofthe-art building and fantastic faculty, H o p e science students tackled their coursework, ranging f r o m i n t r o d u c t o r y biology to physical chemistry. T h e science discipline at H o p e is what draws many students here, and they were not disappointed. H o p e is one of the top liberal arts schools in the nation in providing undergraduate research opportunities, and the highly respected faculty and staff provides an excellent environment in which to learn. As many of the science students know, Peale has bec o m e a second h o m e in times such as the night before a big exam or trying to finish up a lab report, but it is the hard work and difficulty that motivates s t u d e n t s to succeed. T h e sciences at H o p e are highly respected t h r o u g h o u t the nation, and will continue to be so for m a n y years to come. by M a t t Wixson Left; A gerbil runs his course in the animal lab located in the Peale Science Center.

The H o p e College D e p a r t m e n t of N u r s i n g faculty believe that nursing is a scholarly, altruistic profession that focuses on the practice of Christ-like care to p r o m o t e the optimal health of persons. Nursing, through a variety of roles, has the unique o p p o r t u n i t y to facilitate this process. Persons, t h r o u g h o u t their lifespan, interact with the environment and strive to maintain health by adapting to environmental stressors. H o p e College provides a fully accredited and approved nursing program that is unique and innovative. It prepares professional nurses for the many career opportunities and challenges of the 21st century. The H o p e College N u r s i n g Program is accredited through the C o m m i s s i o n on Collegiate N u r s i n g Education ( C C N E ) and approved by the Michigan Board of Nursing. T h e department is very lucky to be a part of new facilities in the Peale Science C e n t e r fully equipped with a state-of-the-art skills lab and media center specifically for nursing students. N u r s i n g students are actively involved in nursing research t h r o u g h o u t the nursing courses and in a nursing research project for the research practicum. T o h o n o r students enrolled in the department, the 2004-2005 H o n o r s and Convocation took place on April 28, at the D i m n e n t Chapel on H o p e College's campus. Several nursing students received H o n o r s , and new members of Sigma Theta Tau were inducted. T h e college and department also hosted the annual Health Careers Fair on Wednesday, February 25, in the new Science C e n t e r atrium. O v e r one hundred nursing and pre-med students f r o m H o p e and Calvin Colleges had an o p p o r t u n i t y to explore externships and full-time opportunities in the health care professions with thirty hospitals and medical centers including the Mayo Clinic, Spectrum Health and Rush Presbyterian Hospital.

Maxine DeBruyn of the Hope College dance faculty has received a Lifetime Achievement Award for her work in dance education. The award was presented by the Michigan Dance Council in cooperation with the National Dance Education Organization. DeBruyn and other honorees were recognized during a reception on Saturday, Oct. 23, in conjunction with the 2004 conference of the National Dance Education Organization, held in East Lansing at Michigan State University. DeBruyn is the Dorothy Wiley De Long Professor of Dance and chairperson of the department at the college. She began her career in dance in 1959 as a high school dance and physical education teacher. She joined the Hope faculty in 1965, and pioneered dance at the college with a single course. In the years since, she has helped build the program to a full department that offers three majors and a minor. Professional companies affiliated with the college and Hope students present a number of dance concerts during each school year. In addition to playing a leadership role in developing the college's dance program, she has been active in professional associations and dance education locally to nationally. Her professional activities through the years have ranged from serving as a U.S. representative to the International Board of Dance and the Child International, a member of the Counseil International de la Danse, U N E S C O , Paris; to serving as vice chair of the Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs; to chairing the statewide Task Force on Creativity, Arts and Cultural Education; to serving as director of the National Association of Schools of Dance. She has held a number of leadership roles with the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance ( A A H P E R D ) , and is a past president of A A H P E R D ' s Midwest District. Hope presented her with the Ruth and John Reed Faculty Achievement Award in 2001. The college's Alumni H-Club, comprised of former student athletes, honored her in both 1985 and 1996.

This year H o p e ' s Music D e p a r t m e n t celebrated its centennial. T o h o n o r this event, piano Professor Charles Aschbrenner conducted research into the d e p a r t m e n t ' s history. T h e d e p a r t m e n t ' s history of passion for music continues today, even amidst changes. Dr. Stuart Sharp, the D e p a r t m e n t Chair, stepped d o w n after years of dedicated service. His successor will be Dr. Margaret Kennedy-Dygas, currently head of the Voice D e p a r t m e n t . Also, after a two year stay, piano P r o f e s s o r Soyeon Park left the department, having given many unforgettable performances. T h e presence of those music students w h o recently graduated will be missed, but their f u t u r e s look bright. T h o s e graduating with Music Education degrees will make careers sharing their passion with y o u n g musicians, while those five w h o received Performance degrees are continuing in paths entirely unique and may spotted anywhere around the globe!

W h e n the Art D e p a r t m e n t moved into D e Free Art C e n t e r & Gallery, a remodeled furniture factory, in 1982, they realized they were getting the advantages of a modern, well-equipped facility combined with the history of craftsmanship found in an older building. The D e p a r t m e n t of Art and Art H i s t o r y is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design. C o u r s e offerings in the D e p a r t m e n t of Art and Art H i s t o r y are structured in f o r m , content and sequence to provide a foundation in the fine arts for both the art student and the liberal arts student. The curriculum affords opportunities for study and creative work in the visual arts through studio practice and art history. T h e D e p a r t m e n t of Art and Art H i s t o r y faculty members are teaching, producing and research oriented artists and art historians. The department offers assistantships to qualified upper level students. Students majoring in art at H o p e College participate in a wide variety of activities including apprenticeships in Europe, N e w York City, Chicago and Philadelphia, contacts with visiting artists and lecturers of national importance, field trips to museums such as the Art Institute of Chicago, the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Toledo Museum of Art, exhibition experience in the D e Free Gallery, and so much more. Art graduates have gone into graduate work in studio and art history, practicing fine artists, sculptors, painters, printmakers, and photographers, teaching on the college, secondary, and elementary levels, as well as a slew of other professions. Art history professor and department chairperson, Carol A n n e Mahsun, noted "Studio majors experience a rigorous foundation in two and three dimensional studies as well as advanced courses using the materials and tools of antiquity, through the technology of the 21st century." The opportunities for art majors are undoubtedlv on the rise.



The Depree Art C e n t e r and Gallery at H o p e frequently offers art exhibitions and exhibits of famed artists f r o m around the globe. F r o m May 14 to June 16th a retrospective exhibition and sale was held of the late artist, Stanley H a r r i n g t o n . The gallery m o u n t e d oil paintings, gouaches and prints by H a r rington, a 1958 H o p e graduate of English. H a r r i n g t o n served as Professor of painting at H o p e f r o m 1964 to 1968 helping establish the first gallery space at H o p e College, until his untimelv death in 1968. This exhibition "is particularly apporopriate right now - this year would have marked his 70th birthday," stated Delbert Michel, exhibition curator and friend and colleague to Stan. T h e exhibition featured a selection of his paintings, both oils and acrylics, f r o m a large b o d y of work created in his shortened life. H a r r i n g t o n ' s brush work is rich and his color palette, earthy. His work is well crafted, and his images are subtle. ( P h o t o by Jason Cash)

In its fifty-first year, O p u s continued to spread words and art around H o p e College and the H o l land c o m m u n i t y . T h e y met once a week to discuss art of the written variety. They carpooled to poetry readings. T h e y produced two handsome and provocative issues of the O p u s literary magazine. A f t e r slight design and printing delays, their Fall 2004 issue came out in early January 2005. T h e issue featured poems, stories, paintings, and photographs by twenty-seven students. They celebrated by co-hosting, with the Veritas F o r u m , a combination poetry reading, concert, and i m p r o m p t u art gallery in the Kletz, entitled Caffeinated Expression. A record number of pieces were submitted for the spring edition of O p u s , which provided their editorial board extra incentive to meet, drink tea, and order Chinese. The Spring 2005 issue featured poems, prose, and visual art by over thirty diff erent students. Some O p u s members were reportedly spotted blitzing the campus with poems in the wee hours of April 1, the night of the hotly contested Poetry Blitz; but this, of course, is merely hearsay. Glenn Lester was the editorin-chief; other editorial board and design crew members included Ashley Boer, Beth Fredericks, Kathryn Frens, Lauren Eriks, Brad Haveman, David Lee, Maggie Machledt, Clayton O r r , Melissa Sexton, Beth Sutter, Ginny Trover, Sidra Tees, Emily Wegemer, and Anna West. 62

T o think that such names as G w e n d o l y n Brooks, Maxine Kumin, Li Young-Lee, and Joyce Carol G a t e s have walked the sidewalks of H o p e C o l lege and have read their work on Eighth Street is amazing. T h e Visiting Writers series, f o u n d e d by Jack Ridl in 1982, provided seven nights of readings by ten writers over the course of t w o semesters. Aside f r o m the Mary Pipher reading, each VWS event this year occurred at the Knickerbocker Theater. T h e College, Multicultural Life, the English D e p a r t m e n t , the Cultural Affairs C o m m i t t e e , and the W o m e n ' s Issues Grganization a m o n g others sponsor the Visiting Writers Series. T h a n k s to these organizations, all events provided by the Visiting Writers Series are free of charge and open to the public. This year H o p e hosted writers f r o m as far away as Beirut, Lebanon, to as close as Lowell, Michigan. T h e diversity of writing satisfied many tastes as poets, essayists, novelists, memoirists, and even psychologists stood at the podium to read selections f r o m their works. Although H o p e did not offer masses of listeners, H o p e ciid o f f e r an intimate atmosphere for writers to share their w o r k and opinions and for students to ask questions and learn. In "Audience" Maxine Kumin, w h o read in the Fall of 1995, captures the experience well when she wrote, "In Holland, Michigan, arriving on a delayed flight and whisked f r o m the airport to the reading hosted by H o p e College, I found myself on stage in a renovated movie theater. Every seat appeared to have been taken. A student jazz group was warming up the crowd. I was overcome with paranoia; everyone would steal away when the poet rose and approached the podium. I was wrong. It was a memorable evening." T h e Visiting Writers Series creates a unique opportunity f o r readers and writers to enjoy and experience the work of important writers.

Many H o p e College Students tend to feel isolated in H o l land, Michigan, but Model United N a t i o n s gives students a way to actively understand h o w world organizations work. Participating in Model U N allows students to learn how the Security Council, the General Assembly, and the International C o u r t of Justice work; all have very different processes for working through issues. N o t only did those involved in the class have to understand the issues at hand but also the processes of their particular group. F o r example some students were involved in the Secu-

rity Council, particularly the Sudan Crisis. This activity made students more aware of the genocide and civil unrest going on in Sudan due to the drastic differences in people groups there. Being a part of Model U N helped students realize the importance of being aware and involved in the world. H o p e College students w o r k e d for m o n t h s to prepare the program for approximately 900 high school students, and all of the H o p e students' hard work paid off as yet another successful Model U N concluded.

Most H o p e students have at least heard of Dr. Fred L . J o h n s o n 111, assistant professor of history at H o p e College. His enthusiastic, sometimes loud, lectures have inspired students across disciplines, and this inspiration shows. In 2002 students voted him their favorite faculty member, and now he has another award to add to his collection, a " H o p e Outstanding Professor Educator" (H.O.P.E.) Award. The 2005 graduating class presented this award at the C o m mencement ceremony, held at Holland Municipal Stadium on Sunday, May 8, at 3 p.m. Dr. Johnson came to H o p e in 2000, bringing his expertise in 19th-century U.S. history, U.S. military, and Africa. Growing up m Washington, D.C., he went on to earn his bachelor's degree

from Bowie State College. From there he obtained his master's and doctorate from Kent State University. Unlike most professors, Dr. Johnson served as a corporate trainer and officer in the U.S. Marine Corps. While at Hope, Dr. Johnson has worked with communication professor Dr. David Schock to produce a documentary examining the history of the Ku Klux Klan in Michigan. H e has also been researching the Rwandan genocide, which includes witnessing the War Crimes Tribunal in Arusha, Tanzania. H o p e students find it easy to see why Dr. Johnson received this award— they know he's passionate about history and really interested in his students. {information taken from PR News Release) by Tally Reeverts

Dr. Rhoda ^anzen W h e n P r o f e s s o r R h o d a J a n z c n was considering accepting an English position at H o p e College, she stressed her need t o be able to choose the topics and c o n t e n t of her classes. H o p e College assured her that they had no "specific agenda or small w i n d o w " to what she could teach. This supportive, n u r t u r i n g e n v i r o n m e n t c o n n e c t e d well with her personal teaching p h i l o s o p h y and vision. P r o f e s s o r Janzen does not grade on a preconceived n o t i o n based on b a c k g r o u n d , political stance, or religious beliefs. According t o Janzen, she assigns grades based on " n o t what you believe, but h o w you position it." J a n z e n has chosen to teach at the collegiate level due to the engaging a t m o s p h e r e of the classrooms. As she puts it, the men and w o m e n arc clearly "engaged" in the course material and m o r e than eager t o engage in a t h o r o u g h l y academic discussion following the reading. Raised in a conservative M e n n o n i t e c o m m u nity, Janzen k n o w s well the conservative lifestyle. However, additional life experiences and living places such as South D a k o t a , Canada, C e r m a n y , France, Italy, and California have helped b r o a d e n her perspective of the world. She firmly believes in the idea of c o m m u n i t y , and appreciates all that H o p e does t o foster this feeling of connection on campus and b e y o n d . P r o f e s s o r Janzen significantly enjoys spending time in the classroom with her students, yet she also likes the quiet productive a t m o s p h e r e of her office. Janzen is currently w o r k i n g on three different b o o k s : a grammar b o o k , appropriately

T h e title of this b o o k has not yet been determined. P r o f e s s o r J a n z e n enjoys reading novels by H e n r y James and poetry by Donald Justice. Elizabeth Bishop's "The C o m p l e t e P o e m s " inspired her as a y o u n g student and still influences her writing. She fervently advocates the benefits of daily exercise, and believes that H o p e College could benefit f r o m more on-campus coffeehouses to encourage the circulation of ideas via conversation between students. Some students hold the opinion that J a n z e n ' s classes are t o o difficult, but her classes encourage students to take a critical look at social issues and concepts t h r o u g h literature and poetry. O n the lighter side of things—if she were to try o t h e r professions or areas of study, R h o d a would choose either Theology or the position of naming paints for a paint company. She prefers decaf coffee to tea and is interested in pop culture and, interestingly enough, romance novels f r o m the 1930s. She also organizes her b o o k s by genre and chronological order. Megan P u r t e e and Tally Reeverts, students of Rhoda at one time or another, recommend any of Janzen's classes because "she makes grammar interesting" and she is "a captivating professor."

than expected

I he 2005 W o m e n ' s T r a c k season started off a little uneasy with the resignation of t h e previous head coach, and s o m e ladies were a bit nervous f o r t h e t u r n o u t . Yet, as s o o n as the c o m p e t i t i o n started, t h e w o m e n proved t o be b e t t e r t h a n t h e y had expected. O v e r Spring Break, t h e team traveled t o Jacksonville, Florida f o r the week, m a k i n g stops at b o t h Coastal C a r o l i n a U n i v e r s i t y in M y r t l e Beach, South Carolina and E m o r y University in Atlanta, G e o r gia t o c o m p e t e . I he week proved to be successful f o r training and c o m p e t i t i o n f o r everyone. T h e w o m e n had a lot of d e p t h in each area of events, senior captain Emily Schlitz excelled in the th rowing events, while f r e s h m a n Lindsay Lange came in s t r o n g in virtually any event she c o m p e t e d in (100m hurdles, 400m run, 400m hurdles, 200m run, 4x100m relay, t h e 4x400m relay, and the H e p t a t h a l o n ) . Lange also b r o k e t h e school records in a b u n d l e of events as well ( s o m e of which were over 20 years old). A l o n g w i t h that, she qualified f o r nationals in several events as well. O n the distance team, t h e w o m e n were all very s t r o n g , including senior Tina Pike, w h o w o n b o t h t h e 5000m and the 10,000m in the M I A A c o n f e r e n c e finals.

Women's Track


H o p e ' s Baseball team strove to win the M I A A championship and gain a berth into the N C A A f o r their 2005 season. Head Coach Stu Fritz laid out the team's goal before the start of the season—" O u r goal for this year, as even year, is to win the M I A A championship and earn the right to advance to the N C A A championships. Being the team that we are, having the reputation that we do, teams look at us with a big target on o u r back. Being in that position is good for us, it shows us h o w tough we can be. Everyone knows the M I A A championship has to go through Holland." " Although the D u t c h m e n placed secorid in the M I A A , they made an improvement on last year's third place finish. Great senior leadership helped the team work hard f r o m pre-season through post to earn a record of 22-16. With that leadership came the abilities of t w e n t y - o n e returning letterwinners. Many of these players won All-MIAA awards, and those players were senior Vance N a r d i n with the position player of the year award, junior J o n E d m o n d s o n with first team honors, s o p h o m o r e Mike VanderVelde with second team h o n o r s , and junior Geordie MacKenzie with second team honors. Nardin won quite a few h o n o r s in his last season for the D u t c h m e n . T h e American Baseball Coaches Association voted him on the Mideast All-Region first team. H e also batted .416 in all games (fifth highest on Hope's all-time hitting on base percentage), and topped the M I A A in league games with .460 average. H e also has the fourth highest record at H o p e for stolen bases with twenty-one. In one of the season's highlights, the D u t c h m e n headed south to Port Charlotte, Florida, f o r spring break to play at the Port C h a r l o t t e Sports Complex, formerly h o m e to the Texas Rangers. With the best spring break record in three years at 6-3, the team made a great effort especially by the pitching staff. 1 he baseball team had a great season despite falling short of the championship in a heavily competitive M I A A league.

Many factors piay into what makes Hope College what it is: the Dutch heritage, the great academic departments, the beautiful campus, the Christian liberal arts aspect, the location, and the rich traditions. All of these factor in to it, but the essence of Hope is contained within the people. The people bring Hope alive. They live, work, eat, breathe, and recreate at Hope. Most importantly, they bring their diverse backgrounds, thoughts, and ideas to share with others. In stepping outside the box of their home lives, they grow and stretch in new ways at Hope. Hope also evolves and expands as its students venture outside the college, exploring through internships, study abroad, and involvement in the community. The people make Hope College what it is.

Starting with a Smile by Elizabeth Johnson

If you have not yet had the chance to be on top of DeWitt Theater hanging a thirty foot banner welcoming yet another new class to Hope, you have missed out. My first memory of Hope is of being swarmed by students who rushed to move me into my dorm room. Although they were carrying heavy furniture and boxes, they were always smiling and seemed happy to be there! I vowed to do the same for every class until I graduated, and I can happily say that I have succeeded. I have been involved in many things at Hope, but the one thing that I love more than anything else is going back early to set up the campus. Each year, this begins with hanging that banner and ends with welcoming in those new faces with my own large grin. Through Hope was many different experiences throughout the years, the friendliness and smiles are lasting impression that I will always keep with me. I am happy that I can walk away knowing that I got the chance to smile back.

Nykerk has been an unforgettable part of my college years. As a Song Girl I sang my heart out, and as song coaches Emily Llewellyn and I helped others to do the same. We grew to love our "oddmazing" Song Girls. I consider it an honor to have been on the 07 Coaching Team. Before the ten coaches even met our girls and boys, we made some decisions about the direction we wanted Nykerk to take. We all committed ourselves to unite the three events more than they were during our freshmen and sophomore years. We were also dedicated to bringing back what is called "Nykerk Spirit" between Even and Odd Years. The whole point of Nykerk is to have fun. I ' m proud to say that's what we did!

Senior Eric DeBoer receives a loving birthday rally from his friends while wearing a hat that embodies the frue soirif of what it means to be a Dutchman. Although Deboer is duct-taped to an aluminum ladder, he is always eager to boast of his love for Hope College, In the final weeks of senior year, this idyllic scene on a balmy April evening serves as a reminder to us all to embrace any chance to remain young at heart, especially in college.

Those students who live in Kroker apartments affectionately refer to it as the "on-off campus." For the lucky few who get to experience eighth street living, they enjoy spacious windows that flood the rooms with light, one Pathroom for every two people, and even a dishwasherl However, some drawPacks occur during snowstorms when illegal parking seems to Pe the only option, you have to allow an extra ten or fifteen minutes to get to class. Yet the advantages win us over, and we remain proud to call Kraker home, Py Jill Aardema

When the weather begins to get warmer, students are more than willing to leave the confines of the cement block buildings to seek higher education in the more comfortable surroundings of the Pine Grove, From basic studying, to subreme relaxation, the 'Grove is auite arguably the heart of Hobe's campus. (Photo by Ashley DeHudy)





While walking to and from classes, it is not uncommon to know many people along the way. Such random sightings of friends might Pe rare at larger univeristies, Put with a student Pody of slightly over three thousanO, these coincidences are merely a pleasant routine in the daily commute. (Photos Py Jason Cash)

One of the more convienent aspects of life at Hope is the navigaPle size of the campus. Even if the one o'clock Rhetorical Analysis class meets on Eighth Street and is immediately followed by Biology in the Science Center, such an arOorous journey is completely feasiPle in the ten-minute period Petween the two classes.

One of the most reoognlzeoble buildings on Hope's campus, Dimnent Memorial Chapel unquestionably plays a key role in everyday life. Whether they regularly attend the three chapel services held on weekdays, frequent "The Gathering," or simply enjoy its Gothic architecture Ouring the walk back from class, most students on campus enjoy the stoic, old-world sense of p e a c e radiating from its stone walls. Seen from nearly every corner of campus, Dimnent is the hub of a thriving community. (Photo by Tally Reeverts)

On any given day, Hope sees thousands of flyers, advertisements, and announcements, Students and organizations paper the hallways with notifications and cover our residence halls with informational Prochures. However, whenever there is an on-campus camedien, concert, or birthday, the massive signage Is such that no one who lives here can say they didn't hear about it.

The large stone bench In front of Graves Hall was a gift from the class of 1910, Smooth lines and classic design inspire contemplation, but students seldom c o m e here to relax. However, on this sunny afternoon, this bench provides an inviting location for junior Benjamin Manting to take an afternoon nap,

The WallbyAAegcrpurtee Tucked away in a dark hallway in DcWitt between W T H S and the A n c h o r office, the Wall resides. Almost anyone involved in a Student Organization has had f r e q u e n t contact with the Wall. It has spent years providing a safe b a c k d r o p for creating s o m e of the many signs that frequent the lesser "Walls" of Phelps and the Kletz. U s i n g large paint markers, creativity can a b o u n d in making signs for residence halls, Greek events, and swing dance parties. This Wall stands testament t o all the student events that have been advertised using its corrugated surface. A n y o n e w h o has used the Wall has left their mark s o m e h o w , t h r o u g h boldly displaying Greek letters, drawing rainbows, or simply dropping a marker on the floor. As many of these student organizations anticipate the fall, and brand new offices in the Martha Miller C e n t e r , this wall may become obsolete. Perhaps there will be new Walls constructed of cement and c h r o m e . H o w e v e r , those of us w h o created masterpieces here will never forget the days when the key to any successful campus event was the creation of effective signs using the ever-present surface of the Wall.

he Tale of the Squirrel... by Gregory Borst Most of us have seen him happily looking for acorns near College East or scurrying around the trash cans by the Dow. O n e look at this special squirrel and you are in love. N i c k n a m e s for this infamous creature abound around campus; some call him "Stumpy" (probably because his tail is a s t u m p ) , others insist on "Squabbit," as he looks like a cross between a squirrel and a rabbit, and yet another faction knows him as "Butch. The tail-less squirrel is no doubt becoming one of the foremost icons of H o p e College, as familiar as the beloved Anchor. It is unclear how long this beloved squirrel has been present around H o p e , but some seniors remember him f r o m their freshman years here, suggesting that Stumpy is

W i t h

NŠ Tail

at least four years old. A n o t h e r quandary facing the student fans of Squabbit is the question of how exactly he lost his tail. A recent survey revealed a plethora of possibilities, including a freak accident involving a Frisbee (thus the regulations on Frisbee golf); a war between black and grey squirrels; an unusual mating between a squirrel and a rabbit; or possibly that G o d made him tailless for our entertainment. Whatever the case may be. Butch is the most popular of all the squirrels around campus. With luck, this much-loved campus icon will stick around for many years, but no matter what, he will always have a special place in H o p e College lore.

The Alley funs between D y k that •fui stra Hall and Gilmore Hall is a familiar sight to most freshmen. W o m e n w h o live in either of the all-women residence halls pass t h r o u g h it daily on the way t o class and when coming back to their rooms. Men use it to visit their girl friends, extremely conscious of the strong concentration of w o m e n w h o reside at this corner of campus. During the winter, the alley remains at least ten degrees warmer than the surrounding grounds. A n y girl w h o has ever had a w i n d o w that looks out on the alley can attest to its uncanny ability t o significantly magnify any sound that occurs within a seventy yard radius. Several stairways and even a small grassy knoll provide ample locations for late-night conversations. This alley, although small, helps t o add to the experience that is a freshmen year at H o p e College. ( P h o t o by Tally Reeverts)

The various groups at Hope College bring many diverse and unique opportunities to students. Participating in a group helps students get out of the residence halls, learn outside the classroom, serve in the community, and get off campus. Some groups, for instance Dance Marathon, involve hundreds of students and many different facets of activity. Other groups, like the Chess Club, get together a small number of people in order to improve at the game of Chess. Whether large or small, the groups at Hope provide great experiences for students to enjoy themselves and get outside of the box that papers, exams, and stress can build.

But a f t e r everyone w e n t h o m e f o r the s u m m e r , b o t h Meyers and Schuen remained in t h e S A C O f f i c e t o begin m a j o r p l a n n i n g f o r t h e big w e e k e n d .

T h e entire w e e k e n d was the culmination of all of this time and dedication. A n d while it m a y have passed b y m o r e quickly than a n y o n e could have imagined, it was s o m e t h i n g that i m p a c t e d every single s t u d e n t in s o m e f o r m or a n o t h e r while t h e y were at H o p e College.

Residential Life seems to reach all corners of campus. From Resident Assistants to the Director of Housing, the organization works side-by-side with a large portion of campus—students, custodial staff. Dean of Students, Student Development, and Campus Safety to name a few. This year Residential Life provided "The O t h e r Shoe," the Cottage Chili Cook-off, and the Residential Life Garage Sale as all-campus activities. Within each community— such as Phelps Hall or the West Green Neighborhood— RAs, Neighborhood Coordinators, and Students Resident Directors facilitate community through activities like block parties, movie nights, barbeques, self-defense classes, and how-tos. Members of Residential Life not only uphold college policy, but they also provide informal counseling, roommate mediation, a helping hand in moving furniture, and random information about Hope. Hope College Residential Life in 2004-2005 provided a great experience to those who participated. Student Assistant Resident Director of Dykstra Hall, Heather Dykstra, said, "Residential Life has introduced me to a new community of support and friends and has been an enriching experience." Though maybe not always seen as a campus organization. Residential Life has one of the higher rates of participation on campus. Orientation / Residential Life

A yearbook is more than a publication. It is a historical artifact, tangibly documenting an entire year as experience by a unique student body. Just as the Milestone seeks to reflect the changing of Hope's seasons, this book also echoed the shifting in the team responsible for its creation. This was undeniably a growing year for the yearbook staff. The co-editors, sophomores Jason Cash and Tally Reeverts, were in charge of a staff comprised of mostly underclassmen. Many of them were working on their specific sections for the first time. The editors-in-chief started planning the book's theme and cover in June at a Walsworth workshop in Ypsilanti. The staff came together in mid-September to plan out the year. November 4-7, 2004, Jill Aardema, Jason Cash, Tally Reeverts, and Walsworth representative Anthony Perez made the nine-hour journey to Nashville, Tennessee to attend the National Coll ege Media Convention to learn new computer software and pick up the latest design trends. The staff met even' Wednesday to discuss story ideas, brainstorm feature articles, and ensure that all the important H o p e College-related events would be covered in the next 212 Groups

Milestone yearbook. Highlights during the year included a delicious Christmas dinner and an end-of-the-year exam-week party courtesy of advisor Diana Breclaw. As both the year and its book drew to a close, staff members bonded in their cozy office while they raced to place each picture and edit every story. The end result provides the entire community with a fresh look at the enduring spirit of Hope College and the traditions that shape its identity.

W T H S has had another great year. With over 60 Disc Jockeys the air waves were full of H o p e voices. Aside from providing H o p e and the community with the most up to date alternative music and a wide variety of specialty shows, W T H S also provided campus with three great concerts. Matt Wertz returned to a sold out crowd and wowed the audience with some of his new music. There was also a Kletz concert with David McMillan and a concert at Spring Fling with Farewell to February, that provided students with new music and fun. It is hard to believe that this was the last year W T H S will spend in the DeWitt center. With a new location and an new image next year in the Martha Miller Center, this year was spent remembering the past and celebrating the changes that are to come. O n e way this was accomplished was through the use of live remote broadcasts from football games and other events, as well as a large promotions drive at the start of the year.

by Tally Reeverts Planning for the sixth annual H o p e College Dance Marathon began almost immediately after the fifth annual Marathon ended, and we had some big goals in store for our campus in order to "Keep Hope Afloat" in 2005. O u r Miracle Families participated in the Homecoming parade by decorating their bicycles and wagons with H o p e spirit. They pedaled the' streets of campus, excitedly tossing candy out to all of the kids watching the parade. At our Christmas party, Santa read a story and delivered some presents, and everybody made some fantastic holiday crafts. Whales, dolphins, and turtles were spotted in the Dow swimming pool for the pool party. Miracle Children and students alike enjoyed splashing around in the water. O n e of the highlights at the Marathon was being able to watch Ali Aardema swim for the first time in a long time. She is an avid swimmer but had been unable to use her Make-a-Wish backyard pool due to a relapse in cancer. Her doctors cleared her for swimming the week before the Marathon, though, so Ah did not hesitate before diving in! This year. Dance Marathon partnered with Classical Bridal to offer a wedding expo as a fun new way to raise money. Local businesses displayed their wedding items to start the "Senior Scramble" planning early—the highlight of the event was our Miracle 216


Children's participation in the fashion show. They strolled down the aisle of Dimnent as flower girls and ring bearers. Another fundraiser took place at SAC's Vegas Night when the Dream Team, with newly acquired dealing skills, provided a Texas Hold 'Em tournament to continue in fundraising. This was the first year we had Miracle Children at the Marathon as official dancers. Hannah Selig, Ali Aardem, and Duncan Bocks stuck out the whole night with the other 240 student dancers. These kids among others really do benefit from Hope's effort. Throughout the year, nearly one third of the campus participated in fundraising. $103,012.08 was raised for the DeVos Children's hospital to help run a variety of programs that greatly impact the lives of children and families treated at DeVos.

T h e year was 1995 and H o p e C o l l e g e m e n ' s basketball assistant coach. M a t t N e i l , had a vision. A vision that t h e t e r m " h o m e - c o u r t advantage" w o u l d truly m e a n w h a t it says. A decade and t h o u s a n d s of s t u d e n t s later, this vision has b e c o m e a reality -a loud reality. As H o p e C o l l e g e m e n ' s team celebrates a c e n t u r y of basketball, their loyal fan base celebrates a similar milestone, ten glorious years. C o a c h Neil, a 1982 H o p e graduate, has n o w been w i t h t h e team as an assistant f o r 16 years. If it w a s n ' t f o r N e i l ' s vision, t h e r e is a g o o d chance that H o p e o p p o n e n t s w o u l d n o t fear a H o p e h o m e game, as t h e y n o w do. T h e D e w C r e w , s p o n s o r e d by M o u n t a i n D e w , has a slew of traditions that set themselves apart f r o m a typical college s t u d e n t section.

This g r o u p of fans has created such a stir that H o p e ' s basketball legacy has gained r e n o w n o n a national level. Earlier this year, E S P N cameras came t o H o p e d u r i n g t h e C a l vin game t o film f o r t h e series " T o p T e n C o l l e g e Rivalries."

InterVarsity Christian Fellowship is an international fellowship group on college campuses. InterVarsity's purpose is to establish and advance witnessing communities of students and faculty who follow Jesus as Savior and Lord: growth in love for God, God's Word, God's people of every ethnicity and culture, and God's purposes in the world. At Hope, InterVarsity seeks to fulfill this mission through four different aspects: prayer, small group Bible study, large group fellowship, and discipleship training retreats. 1 his year forty students participated in InterVarsity's unique indepth small-group Bible studies called "K-Groups." InterVarsity also had weekly prayer meetings in which students came together, prayed for each other and for the campus, and on occasion went into the dorms asking for prayer requests. During the spring semester, InterVarsity also featured a video series called "Where is God in Sex, Love, Dating and Marriage." Students had a small and large group discussion on these topics in relation to the book Song of Solomon. Another key aspect of InterVarsity is discipleship training retreats. This year, InterVarsity students went to three retreats: one in the fall, winter and then spring. At these retreats they met up with hundreds of other InterVarsity students at other college campuses, and together they learned how to further God's kingdom at their schools.

Habitat HunWiity

Habitat for Humanity brings together volunteer labor and donated resources to build and renovate decent, affordable homes for low-income people in need. Homeowner partners invest 250 to 400 hours of "sweat equity" labor and buy their home with a no-interest, no-profit mortgage. House payments are recycled to build more houses. Habitat for Humanity builds on the principle that all God's people deserve a decent place to live and that our community is a better place when that occurs. Hope College's Habitat for Humanity is affiliated with Lakeshore H F H . They had workdays ever other Saturday, doing all things from framing to painting. They also sponsored a spring break trip in which they participated in the collegiate challenge. This year a group of 18 students went to Bunnell, Florida. They worked with four other schools to put up a house in four days. They got to spend the days in the beautiful sun, working right along the side of the homeowners. The)' were so grateful that it made the week worth it! 220

The hustle and bustle of students, loud chatter, and laughter fill the historic Dimnet Chapel. It is early in the day for many students, but the joy of seeing friends and spending time with them pushes the tired feelings aside. A single note from the keyboard on stage silences everyone and directs their attention to the front. It is time to begin another Chapel service at Hope. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings are when Hope students come together to praise God and learn a little more about how we should live our lives as growing Christians. Before a message is presented to the crowd of inquisitive minds, a group of about a dozen students and faculty direct the attention to a favorite thing for many students: praise-and-worship singing. The Hope College Chapel Band may only sing a couple of songs, three days a week, but there is so much that this group brings to the effort. Many people would think since the word "band" is used to describe the musicians who are part of the group that they are performers, but that's really not what the group is all about.

Above: Sam Pedigo a n d Caitelen Anderson sing for the band. Band's main focus is not to sing musical notes or be praised for its effort. Each Chapel morning, the band members stand in front of the crowd of Hope students simply to provide a way to worship God and show how he can be glorified by our hearts and minds through music. "To me, it is all about using the gifts that God has given to me to benefit others and help them worship. I am just a tool for the Lord. When I am up there, nothing matters. I don't feel on stage; I just feel one with God." said Sam Pedigo, a member of the Chapel Band. The group is composed of 30 students, ranging from sophomores to seniors and is directed by faculty Dwight Beal and John Ornee.

President Maggie Machledt, Vice Presiaent Nina Healy, Historian Melissa Sexton, Treasurer Kathleen Ludewig, Publicity Kathryn Frens, Postal & Member Correspondent Carol Guess, PuPlicity/Web-site Kathleen LuOewig all helped to plan events throughout the year.

Amnesty International is the world's largest and bestknown human rights organization, and Hope's current chapter has been around for about four years. The group met every other Wednesday at the Amnesty House, which was Beck Cottage, for letter writing and discussion of current human-rights related events. Amnesty's main activity is responding to Urgent Action letters, which are human right violation updates sent out to members all over the world. Members then respond with a letter to the given address, typically a governmental leader in the country where the trouble has occurred. O f t e n times, piles and piles of letters from all corners of the world flood the oppressor and the

situation betters, if the prisoner is not freed. Though Amnesty mostly deals with heavy subjects like torture and imprisonment, they also celebrate victories and accomplishments. At Christmas time, Amnesty has run an activity called Holiday Action Cards, where tables in Phelps are set up with card-making materials and students are invited to send holiday cards with messages of hope to prisoners of conscience. Amnesty also hosts information tables and a variety of speakers throughout the year. The group is small, but as anthropologist/ author Margaret Mead said, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

The dictionary defines 'family' as a group of people united by common interests, convictions, or characteristics. Its community, fellowship, and being in the company of friends. The 07 PULL team became a family and a part of a tradition that extends well beyond our own self. When the team came together freshman year they shared similar characteristics. They were new to the school, eager to meet new people, and anxious to challenge themselves mentally and physically. They endured long practices each day and began taking steps to form their family. They rapidly developed a close knit community within the team, however, P U L L day came and went and they watched their opponents swim. Those who returned sophomore year came with a common interest and a desire to win. They had felt the pains of loss and wanted to persevere and know success. They struggled through practice. They had good days and bad but they became a stronger family because of it. They worked hard at practice and they encouraged each other. They laughed, they cried, and they prayed together. They knew what it meant to be completely selfless for their teammates and their coaches and on October 2nd their family swam together in the Black River. For their family, and for odd year, it is a day that will not be forgotten.

by Amy O'Connell After all the canvassing is done, the flyers are down, the commercials and debates are deflated, our efforts to change the nation in turn changed each one of us. The 2004 election left many of us with a newly found charge to try even harder to voice our opinion and continue to fight for a better America. The friendships and bonds hold us together and remind us of the moments that brought us smiles. The best thing of all is that we rework, rebuild, and return for a new fight on a new day. In the meantime, we are proud to make up a vital part of this campus- keeping balance and character in attendance.

Here's a typical problem, you get two pictures from your mom of your little cat giving birth, and your email box is full! All of a sudden, you aren't receiving important work emails, your professors are getting on your back because you aren't responding to any of their emails, your fellow classmates can't ever get a hold of you; and you're Just plain going nuts! This is just one of the many issues that Student Congress has encountered this year. As the representatives of the student body. Student Congress works with the Administration and faculty to initiate positive changes for the I students in the Hope • • College Campus C o m munity. While most notably bringing Mahatmas Gandhi to campus, working

with SAC to put on Homecoming and participating in Relay for Life and Dance Marathon, they also did a significant number of things that deal with the workings of everyday life. 24/7 identification building access happened due to the advisement of Student Congress. All winter long. Student Congress has worked with Campus Safety to create overflow parking spaces. This is in addition to the reduction in cost for cottage space parking passes. Finally, students without cars on campus will be able to travel to Meijer for years to come using the shuttle service provided by congress. And as for the email problem, by working with G I T they were able to gain additional space in email accounts, so you can see that one last picture of your new kittens. Just a few of the ways that they can continue to help the campus in the years to come. by Jen Yamaoka

Below right: The group closely watches Erica Oostlng as she teaches a new song.

Silent Praise is a student-run organization that performed praise and worship songs in sign language throughout the year. Previous knowledge of sign language was not necessary to be a part of the group, and students performed around much of the Holland area at local churches and youth groups. This year, the group changed most of the leadership team, and took on new direction. In years past. Silent Praise learned the performed songs in what is called "Signed English." This year, they learned the songs in American Sign Language. The major difference in this is that Signed English signs most of the words that are sung in the song, and American Sign Language signs what the song is really saying. For those who do not know sign language, this change went unnoticed, but for the deaf that watched the signed performance, it was much easier for them to understand the song. Also, this year a speaker from Wycliffe Bible Translators came to speak, who was working to translate the Bible into many different sign languages. There was also a weekend retreat at a local church after Christmas Break. Meetings were held once a week on Thursday nights to learn new songs. Overall, the group had an awesome sense of community within itself.

A program for children led by Bob Boersma and Fonda Green, CASA is a wonderful example of what caring is all about. These two people have given and continue to give their all in order to make the program run smoothly each semester. They even gave their time in the summer, for a "Summer CASA" program that ran at H o p e College during the summer months. Many were lucky enough to be involved with such a program. The program is for second to fifth graders from all sorts of schools from the Holland school district. CASA students range from many ages, ethnicity's, talents, and likes and dislikes. CASA tutors are Hope College students, who dedicate their time for one semester, two times per week, for a two hour period. During the two hour periods, homework was worked on, games were played, snacks were eaten, and fellowship between elementary school students and college 速 m * students occurred. This fellowship really touched both parties, for what a child can offer an older person and vice versa was quite meaningful. A student really became comfortable with his/her tutor after a while (some right away), and this really opened up a door for progress, both emotionally and scholastically. I he tune spent in CASA with students was a time most cherished by everyone. When a person walked into a room full of students and tutors, one would see without a doubt the happiness looming in the room. The children were smiling, and the tutors were just as well, if not even more. The children benefited greatly from this program, for it fa.r: gave them four hours out of school to practice reading, math, spelling, etc while having fun with it. It showed them in a less intrusive manner that school is fun, and gives them the desire to study for the importance of their future. N o t only do the students benefit, but APove: A CASA volunteer paints eggs with her the tutors do just as much, for children have a beautiful way about CASA kid for Easter time. them.

(Photos Py PR) made it known each time they were there. 1 hey were always thanking Bob, their tutors, really anyone to whom they thought had made it possible. This program really leaves the children feeling strong about themselves, and their ability to achieve in school. Most of all, CASA advocates effective study habits and instills determination in the students to succeed. CASA is a beneficial program to all that enter.

Two new buildings were in the process of being constructed, the DeVos Fieldhouse and the M a r t h a Miller Center for Global Communication. The DeVos Fieldhouse will house offices for the department of kinesiology and the colleges athletic training program, and will become home court for the volleyball and men's and women's basketball programs. The 1 0 2 , 0 0 0 square foot building is being built on Fairbanks Avenue south of Ninth Street. The fieldhouse is being named for Richard and Helen DeVos in honor of their foundation's leadership gift. The total project cost is $ 2 2 million. The M a r t h a Miller Center will house the departments of communication and of modern and classical languages, as well as the offices of international education and multicultural life. The 4 9 , 0 0 0 square foot building is named in honor of the late M a r t h a Miller, who died in 1999 at age 9 6 , in recognition of a $3 million leadership gift her family made on behalf of the project through her estate. The project totals $12 million.

W visits Holland President G e o r g e W. Bush fired up more than 12,000 supporters at the O t t a w a County Fairgrounds in a September visit to the area. In an atmosphere at times more like a rock or country concert, the enthusiastic c r o w d packed into the grandstand and temporary bleachers cheered loudly and w a v e d cardboard "W"s as the president arrived -- and throughout his 36-minute address. "Nothing like a little Dutch hospitality on the campaign trail," Bush said following a brief welcome by U.S. Rep. Pete Hoekstra, R-Holland, and an earlier speech in which M a y o r A1 M c G e e h a n promised the president a pair of wooden shoes. In his speech, the president -- interrupted by shouts of four more years! and the occasional W e love you, George! -- largely echoed the themes he outlined in his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention. About half his speech dealt with issues of security and terrorism. Crowds swarmed in when the doors opened at 11am, and the President spoke around 1:20pm. The Holland Sentinel contributed to this story.

The fraternities and sororities of Hope College provide an opportunity to become a part of a community dedicated to fellowship and service. Participating in the Greek Life helps students create bonds and friendships that will extend past their college years. They also enter a world of long-lived traditions that enhances their experience at Hope and allows them to take a step outside of the box of everyday life. Joining a fraternity or sorority means more than wearing Greek letters—it's a lifetime membership in a group that cherishes friendship and loyalty.

Promethean rroternity /\ farewell state me nf by member Walter Nelson T h e P r o m e t h e a n Fraternity began as a f r a t e r n i t y that was based a r o u n d the idea that G P A was the m o s t important thing when it came to education. O v e r time the fraternities view on what was i m p o r t a n t changed and because of that we left the house and decided that multiculturalism was the m o s t i m p o r t a n t part of our education. Because of this shift in perspectives we, as a group, decided that t h o s e people w h o we wanted t o surround ourselves with were not necessarily t h o s e people who just getting great grades but t h o s e people w h o could bring a different perspective and people w h o m we could learn f r o m . W e began as a g r o u p of c o m p u t e r science students w h o all t o o k the same classes and would only hang out with each other, but our fraternity soon learned that spending time with s o m e o n e just like yourself was not going t o help you learn about different cultures, perspectives and worldviews. W e decided to branch out f r o m the c o m p u t e r science d e p a r t m e n t to other sciences and eventually spread into the international education office and f o u n d many of our new members there. Within the international student b o d y we f o u n d not only a great g r o u p of friends but also a great group of worldviews that lead t o s o m e amazing discussions and the tradition of holding open minded discussions with professors, advisers, administration, and new members. Diversity was s o m e t h i n g that we

f o u n d i m p o r t a n t and because of that I feel that the Promethean Fraternity offered s o m e t h i n g different f r o m the other Greek organizations. Instead of following the crowd we made our own way and had our own interests and o u r o w n idea of why we would even want to join an organization like this. A l t h o u g h we are not going to be a r o u n d next year, we have hopes of s o m e o n e or some people restarting this organization in the near future. W e feel that the ideals of the P r o m e t h e a n Fraternity are very different f r o m t h o s e of any other organization. W e held ourselves to a higher academic standing as well as a higher social standing. Part of what made us a great organization was that we were a group of friends. N o t an organization or a business but a group of friends f r o m different cities, countries, races and life experiences. W e enjoyed a group setting that was supportive of each o t h e r academically, spiritually as well as supportive in the fact that we all c o m e t o the table with a different perspective. It is u n f o r t u n a t e that we will no longer be an active organization but we have had to make the difficultchoice to let this organization dwindle down because of lack of serious participation. W e are a group of friends and have realized that we will be that and will be able t o have that c o m m u n i t y w h e t h e r we pay dues or not. Delta Sigma Theta / Alpha Kappa Pi

Phi Siqma rrdfernity By Mitch Cumings

In their first complete year as a recognized fraternity at H o p e College, Phi Sigma Kappa has made its presence k n o w n t h r o u g h its continual involvement with various organizations and events. T h e first national Greek organization at H o p e , the Phi Sigs raised m o n e y and participated in Dance M a r a t h o n and Relay for Life. T h e fraternity also t o o k the H o p e College C A S A program under its wing and now helps f u n d the tutoring program for at-risk y o u t h in the Holland area. T h e y have helped local Grace Episcopal C h u r c h with rummage sales, interior painting, and playground cleanups. T h e Phi Sigs are also responsible for the annual Greek Week Powder Puff Football t o u r n a m e n t . This year, they t o o k h o m e Greek Awards for both Risk Management and Best B r o t h e r h o o d Event. In early March, Phi Sigma Kappa brothers spent a weekend in Cadillac, MI on a b r o t h e r h o o d retreat. D u r i n g this time they tackled important issues facing the fraternity and revised their C h a p t e r C o n s t i t u t i o n . T h e y spent part of one day on the slopes of Caberfae Peaks. They also team up annually with the Sigma Iota Beta (Syballine) sorority to plan the Fall Bash. This yearly event has proven beneficial in welcoming new students to H o p e and serves as an example of the importance of proper risk management procedures for college events. This relatively new group at H o p e College has worked long and hard to raise the bar for Greek organizations. With the e m b o d i m e n t of their Three Cardinal Principles - Brotherhood, Scholarship, and Character - they are quickly be coming a great asset in p r o m o t i n g the image of H o p e College and the reputation of fraternities not only locally, but t h r o u g h o u t the nation.
