"Recollection" is a rarely used w o r d f o r t h e exact t h i n g t h a t this yearbook staff sets o u t t o do each year. In an age of digital e v e r y t h i n g ; of cell phones, Facebook photo albums, and wireless Internet, our memories have become almost instant. The u l t i m a t e challenge t h a t lies in creating a yearbook is the inevitable time-delay of t h e memories w e are p u t t i n g t o paper. W e can't tell you w h o w o n the Pull immediately after t h e w i n n i n g team swims in the Black River - but w e can remind you of t h a t very m o m e n t w h e n you pull the M i l e s t o n e o f f y o u r shelf in t w e n t y years t o tell y o u r children about t h a t day. This year, t h e 2007 Milestone yearbook celebrates the 9 0 t h edition in a long line of books t h a t began w i t h a 156-page first v o l u m e of "The College A n n u a l " whose graduating class was comprised of 14 seniors - t w o of which were w o m e n . Renamed " t h e M i l e s t o n e " t w o years later, the book has slowly evolved t o t h e silk-screened product you are currently holding, n o w g r o w n t o over 280 pages.

As w e planned f o r this 9 0 t h book, w e t o o k t i m e t o look back at t h e books t h a t came before. W e discovered t h a t t h e only years w h e n t h e book was not published were d u r i n g W o r l d W a r II, w h e n e n r o l l m e n t dropped drastically w h i l e Hope College's y o u n g men were f i g h t i n g overseas. Thus, t h e book itself became its o w n constant recollection of t h e life t h a t Hope led before any of us were students here - back w h e n chapel was m a n d a t o r y , w h e n D e W i t t had a b o w l i n g alley in t h e basement, before Cook and t h e new Science Center, w h e n biology was t a u g h t in Lubbers and Hope's only dining hall was in Voorhees. This year, w e sifted t h r o u g h photos of h o w life at Hope used t o be. W e were struck by h o w familiar many of t h e scenes were. But as you look more closely at t h e v i n t a g e photos featured t h r o u g h o u t t h e book, you w i l l notice t h a t t h r o u g h rennovations, new buildings, and a g r o w i n g student body, t h e campus adapted seamlessly t o t h e changing times. T h o u g h fashion trends have changed and t h e hair styles are d i f f e r e n t , t h e students in t h e photos f r o m years past seemed t o be p r e t t y much like those w h o w e e n c o u n t e r every day in class and in t h e Pine Grove.



The 2 0 0 6 - 2 0 0 7 year u n i n t e n t i o n a l l y became a year of recollection. The corner stone was removed f r o m Graves Hall t o reveal several artifacts (including a sermon h a n d - w r i t t e n by A.C. Van Raalte - t h e f o u n d e r of t h e Holland Academy, w h i c h became Hope College in 1862 ) t h a t revealed more about Hope's origins. Unprecedented e n r o l l m e n t numbers topped 3,200 students f o r the first t i m e . Several notable professors retired, p r o m p t i n g us t o look back t o t h e lasting impact they have made upon countless students. M a n y main events in the social life of Hope were postponed, cancelled, or moved indoors due t o w e a t h e r ; as a result w e pulled o u t pictures f r o m last year's H o e d o w n , flipped t h r o u g h Spring Fling photos f r o m freshmen year, and w e remembered. Finally, after t h e shortest t w o semesters of t h e i r lives, the class of 2007 walked across t h e stage t o receive t h e i r diplomas, after f o u r years of making t h e best memories t h a t college had t o offer. As w e packed away our f r a m e d pictures f r o m Fantasia and our Frisbees t h a t still bore marks f r o m colliding w i t h the second story of D e W i t t , as w e prepared for our first summer away f r o m Hope or geared ourselves t o take on life after college, w e were lost in recollection.

The Hope community welcomed the Class of 2 0 1 0 ^ arrival on campus in style. Following Orientation G r o u p meetings on Friday, the new students gathered in the Pine Gove for live music at the Orientation Extravaganza. The following evening, first-year students were welcomed into the Dow through a tunnel of cheering Orientation Assistants. Playfair, an event filled with wacky get-to-know-me activities, was a big hit. "Playfair was my favorite part about Orientation," said Fallon Klug. "I had so much fun meeting other people and just being g o o f y all night!" Afterward, students followed the tiki-torch-lined sidewalks to their very own luau. Sunday marked the formal beginning of the school

year as Dr. Harvey Blankespoor, professor of Biology, presented the Convocation address. The first-year students finally met some upperclassmen as all students were invited to the Pine Grove for President B u l t m a n ' s annual Backyard Barbecue. The evening wrapped up with the presentation of "Orange and Blue for Y o u , " a fast-paced, satirical look at student life at Hope College. Orientation Directors Jason Cash and Ana Frikker worked all s u m m e r to put a great program together to w e l c o m e over 800 new students to Hope College. Upperclassmen enjoy Orientation too as hundreds volunteer as Assistant Directors and Orientation Assistant group leaders to help w e l c o m e the new faces. • Jason Cash •

On S e p t e m b e r 23, the ' 0 9 Pull T e a m climbed into pits on the North b a n k of the Black River weariuy m o h a w k s and war-paint, and the previous y e a r ' s l o s s m T z t m e e t , 1 inch, on their minds. The day was cool. They were silefit as they tightened the muddy rope in their hands, and the word " V e n g e a n c e " waved on the banner above them. Then the whistle blew and the pullers screamed, and the rope surged into their pits. T h e crowd was roiling. The rope lifted off the w o o d e n boards, and the eyes of the pullers were white and wide. Their cries were primeval. C o a c h e s ran back and forth as the rope m o v e d through 18 pairs of practice-blistered hands, preparing f o r the m o m e n t that the rope stopped coming, but the rope never stopped. Pit #17 stood up to hold the rope while the anchor took up the slack and retied, and it began to rain, but the pullers kept heaving, and the Black River hissed beneath the bouncing rope. Half an hour into the Pull, the orange mark f r o m the ' 10 Pull Team was pulled over the river, and the '09 Pullers began heaving methodically. They ratcheted the Odd Year mark f r o m

the front of Pit #1 to the middle of Pit #6 before the Pull was ended by the Dean of Students, due to injuries sustained by the " 10 Pull T e a m . After 95 minutes, the '09 Pull T e a m had taken 37 feet of rope, surpassing the previous victory of the 1997 Pull Team, which had ended the Pull in just over 2 hours. Asked afterwards, the pullers said that mental drive fueled their heaves. Greg Pavlak said that, "As a first year puller, I was amazed by the passion and selflessness of the '09 Pull Team, and I truly felt that they were going to battle for me, and 1 for them.' C a m e r o n DeHaan was motivated by a picture ot recently-lost Hope senior, Paul Baeverstad, in his pit, and he shared that, "Paul was my fraternity father, and he always encouraged me to fight off anything I was struggling. The pain left my body when I looked at his picture, and I was able to heave with all of my will." In the end, the pits filled with mud, the rope burns slowly healed, and the '09 Pull T e a m took its place in the record books. Their memories were of friendship, family, and a muddy rope that bound them into one. • Christian Piers •

Singers f r o m the Chapel Choir and the College C h o r u s m e t f o r rehearsals throughout the semester, perfecting the songs which they would perform. The selection chosen for this y e a r ' s Vespers performance ranged f r o m the popular classics such as "Silent Night" to M o z a r t ' s "Veni Sancte Spiritus." H o p e ' s Flute Choir, Brass Ensemble, Symphonette, and organists contributed their versions of beautiful holiday-inspired pieces, including selections f r o m Bizet, B r a h m s and Handel. The concert also incorporated poetry readings f r o m m e m b e r s of the Hope family.

The four performances spanned two days. A popular event throughout the community, each concert quickly sold out. For each performance, Dimnent Chapel was filled with approximately 4,000 audience m e m b e r s throughout the weekend. The concert was aired on PBS television stations and radio throughout the nation. This tradition marks a time of celebration in the Hope College and Holland community. • Katie Moloney •

Dr. Samuel Kobia, general secretary of the World Council of Churches. His sermon was entitled " H o p e Does Not Disappoint U s " and he spoke directly to the students: "Class of 2007. take the best of Hope with you, and build an even broader community of hope wherever life may lead you." That is just what Hope College students did as they encountered the bittersweet experience of graduating. Students received their degrees at the Holland Municipal Sta24

Parents, siblings, extended families, and professors looked on as 720 students crossed the stage and accepted their degrees from President Bultman. English professsor Dianne Portfleet was elected c o m m e n c e m e n t speaker by the student body. She reminded students that, "You are the only person who has sole custody of your life, your unique personality; and only you can fight your individual battle to live a real life, to become the most human you can be, to live the j o y f u l , abundant life that Christ has offered to each of us." • Laura D o w •

Many students choose to use their Spring Break time to serve others through Hope College's C a m p u s Ministries. Groups with adult leaders scatter across the United States and into Central American and Caribbean countries to work with disadvantaged people. Destinations include cities across the country such as Queens, NY; Apache, OK; and East Palo Alto, CA. International trips reached Tijuana, Mexico, Jamaica, and Nicaragua. Planning began in the fall with the selection of student leaders, with each trip meeting frequently afterwards. Upon arrival, students built and remodeled build-

ings, taught students, and worked in soup kitchens. Junior Erin Jenkins explains, "My eyes were opened to the lives of people around me." Though the work was hard, students had challenging and meaningful experiences. • Kayla Katterheinrich •

WondepFul Touun The first stage production of the school year, " W o n derful T o w n , " is based on a book. T w o sisters f r o m Ohio move to Greenwich Village in the 1930s, where they must learn a different way of life. In the process, they face lessons that t t ^ j p i R I r n about life and love. The set was bright and wacky, Ind the costumes colorful outfits f r o m the 1930s. This proTmction was marked by its clever dialogue, jazzy music, and enthusiastic dancing. " T w o R o o m s " is a Pulitzer Prize-nominated play about a husband and wife torn apart by world conflict. The American couple lives in the Middle East until the husband

is kidnapped. W h e n the wife is sent back to the United States, she must deal with her grief by conversing with her husband in her mind.

A student-produced play, "The Shape of Things" is the senior directing project of senior Katharine Nykamp. The play explores the meaning of art, as the main uses another human being as her canvas for a final art project, dating the man and even pretending to love him, all for the sake of her project. The man changes himself for her, transforming from someone nobody notices to a handsome, eye-catching man. Essentially, the play asks, " H o w far is one willing to go for art?" The comedy "The School for Scandal" quickly became a huge hit among students, faculty, and com-

munity members alike. This production allows the audience to listen in on the conversations between close friends who lead outrageous lives. The undertones of the play explore the sincerity and simplicity involved in all human relationships. • Kayla Katterheinrich •

On Saturday, April 21, walking through the Pine Grove was a green experience. The Environmental issues Group hosted an annual Earth Jam to celebrate Earth Day and examine ecological conditions around Michigan. A f t e r a morning spent planting new foliage, students gathered on blankets and spread out on the grass in the Pine Grove. They enjoyed an afternoon of live music and poetry, which revolved around conservation of the earth and its resources. Earth Jam provides a local opportunity for students to get involved in protecting our environment. The following Friday, Hope College celebrated the official end of the semester with Spring Fling. Classes fin-

ished at 3:00 on Friday afternoon, and festivities ensued. The day was rainy and chilly, so most of the S.A.C.-planned activities were moved inside. Fewer students attended than usual, but the day was still a success. T w o of the rides were still located outdoors, including the always-popular 360-degree bike. Instead of a picnic, dinner was provided in Phelps Dining Hall. The rest of the activities, inflatable games, and live music provided by the group Oregon Dream Child were available inside the Dow Center. While this year's Spring Fling celebration was limited by uncooperative weather, students still enjoyed the entertainment provided to them. • Kayla Katterheinrich •

A new wing was added to Cook Hall, a project that was finished just in time for use this fall. It provided an additional sixtysix spots for students, mostly occupied by upperclassmen. Lubbers Hall underwent m a j o r renovations over the summer, completely changing the look inside the building. The old building was given fresh updates, including the installation of air conditioning and more study areas for students.

Along with this move came the move of other student organization offices. The Anchor also received a new office in the Martha Miller Center.

Over a thousand students, colleagues, family, and friends joined together in Dimnent Chapel on Wednesday, September 13 to hear poet and Professor Emeritus Jack Ridl read for the first Visiting Writers Series event of the semester. The night held special meaning because it marked both Ridl's retirement f r o m teaching and the first annual T o m Andrews Memorial Reading. T o m Andrews, a poetry student of Ridl's, graduated Hope S u m m a C u m Laude and became a well-loved poet, publishing three books of poetry and receiving a number of prestigious awards. His art was cut short due to his battle against hemophilia which ended in 2001. In his m e m o r y , there will now be a T o m A n d r e w s Memorial Reading every year in which a guest poet will be invited to join the roster as a part of the Visiting Writers Series on H o p e ' s campus. Following the reading, there was a reception at the Holland Area Arts Council in which visitors admired the artwork and celebrated Ridl's retirement. As a retirement gift, he was presented with an antique canoe, signed by his colleagues and personally restored by David Klooster, chair of the English Department. F a m o u s for holding his legendary class in the " d u n g e o n " — t h e basement of the A n d e r s o n - W e r k m a n Financial C e n t e r — R i d l also founded the original Visiting Writers Series in 1982. Over $28,000 was donated to a creative writing f u n d in his name to honor his contributions to c a m p u s and the series, which was also officially renamed The Jack Ridl Visiting Writers Series. • Bethany Katerberg •

When President Gerald R. Ford accepted an honorary Doctor of Laws degree from Hope College in April. 1987, he called * rX^^IVJ^I I I it the most meaningful degree he had ever received. "Because of my very, very high regard for Hope College, no degree — earned or honorary — will mean more to me than the one I received f r o m this outstanding institution," President Ford said at a convocation held in his honor. President Ford was no stranger to H o p e College. From 1949 through 1973 as a Congressman whose district included Holland, he made annual visits to Hope to discuss foreign and domestic issues with students and faculty. He frequently hosted students and faculty at his Congressional office in Washington, D.C. In 1971 he delivered the keynote address and cut the ribbon celebrating the opening of the DeWitt Center.

Hope College Theatre presented " R o s e and the R i m e " during April in the DeWitt main theatre. The show was written and created by guest artist Nathan Allen, who is the p r o d u c t i o n ' s director, in a collaborative effort with the cast and design team. "This production [was] like nothing our audiences have seen before," said Michelle B o m b e , w h o is a professor of theatre, director of theatre and resident costume designer at H o p e . "It has been an a m a z i n g opportunity for our students to work with Nathan. His entire process revolves around developing c o m m u n i t y and ensemble. He has given the students the vocabulary and tools to develop original work that revolves around story and physical action." '"Rose and the R i m e " is set in the fictional town of Radio Falls, Mich., where it is always winter. The c o m m u n i t y has been laid waste by the terrible Rime Witch, and is a world without flowers, apples, mail or dancing - but with an abundance of snow, wind and ice cream. The shining beacon in the wintry gloom is a young, mute girl named Rose, w h o takes it upon herself to m a k e a treacherous journey to the frozen cave of the Witch in the hope of changing her t o w n ' s fate. T h e cast and crew have been shaping the venue to match the story. "With the aid of customized stage designs and innovative special effects, the production team has created frozen lakes, creepy forests and beach scenes, allowing the DeWitt main theatre to take on a completely new identity," B o m b e noted. Allen is the artistic director of the House Theatre C o m p a n y in Chicago, 111., and has been working with the students throughout the school year. He began in October, with monthly intensive w o r k s h o p s for actors, directors, technicians and writers which culminated in his residency in March and April. • H o p e PR & Jason Cash •

In the nature of the liberal arts, Hope College is al-

ways exploring how to combine subjects and expand on interdisciplinary cooperation. In an attempt to give i " students more options, the Registrar has instated two new minors. Studies in Ministry and Leadership. The Crossroads Project will oversee the Studies in Ministr • y minor, and the Center for Faithful Leadership will a supervise the Leadership minor, pulling classes from Communication and Management. In addition to these new minors, the Culture Heritage classes expanded to allow more specific topics within the requirements. Some titles of these new options are "The Middle Ages," "Real Life and the Good Life, f r o m Classical T i m e s to Christian," "Treasures and Trash: What the Greeks and Romans Left Us," and "Indigenous: Native American Literature and History in (What C a m e to Be Called) North America." The expanded selection came after requests by students to allow more flexibility in the fulfillment of the Cultural Heritage requirement. Similarly the Social Science B requirement will allow Political Science 151: Introduction to Global Studies to count toward the Social Science. These new minors and changes to the curriculum will begin in the Fall 2007 semester. • Tally R e e v e r t s •

A Hope College graduate w h o appreciated his own undergraduate experience gave a $7 million leadership gift in support of the c o l l e g e ' s science center project. T h e gift was intended as both a way of saying thank you and helping new generations of students. In recognition of the gift, given by Dr. A. Paul Schaap and his wife Carol of Grosse Pointe Park, the college re-named the building the "A. Paul Schaap Science Center." Both the gift and the n a m i n g were announced at the conclusion of the 2 0 0 5 - 2 0 0 6 school year. "This is a generous and transforming gift for this exceptional facility and for enhancing H o p e ' s national reputation in collaborative undergraduate research," said Hope College President Dr. J a m e s Bultman. Dr. A. Paul Schaap, w h o is a 1967 H o p e graduate, is president of Lumigen Inc., which he founded. He noted that he has supported the building in appreciation of the quality of his education and those w h o helped m a k e it possible. "I appreciate how important my education and research experience in chemistry at H o p e have been to my career, first in academics and now in business, and I see this gift as a chance, with my wife Carol, to give back to Hope and help provide similar opportunities for students for years to c o m e . " he said. " T h e science center is a wonderful facility that offers a stimulating environment for students in the sciences. I ' m proud to be associated with the science center in this w a y .

Just before Christmas, the Joint Archives of Holland removed the cornerstone of Graves Hall as Hope College geared up to renovate Graves Hall. G e o f f r e y Reynolds, director of the Archives, had been looking for any original drawings of Graves' interior. Unfortunately the cornerstone did not reveal what Reynolds was looking for, but the find still piqued historians' interest. The box included an 1878 three-dollar gold coin and an Albertus Van Raalte sermon in his handwriting. Graves Hall's cornerstone with time capsule was set in 1892 and served as the chapel starting in 1894. The hall then switched duties with the completion of Dimnent Memorial Chapel in 1929 and was converted to a library. When the Van Zoren Library was completed. Graves provided room for classrooms and offices. Winants auditorium underwent renovation in 1980. The college plans many restorations and changes including electrical updates, adding better handicap accessibility, and providing larger spaces for meetings. • Tally R e e v e r t s •

The Undergraduate Research Celebration was established in 2001 to showcase the student-faculty collaborative research accomplished at Hope College. Since then the celebration has grown to include research f r o m the arts and humanities, natural and physical sciences, and social sciences. On January 29, 2007, 275 students presented 166 research projects and works of art. To open the event. Dr. Charlotte vanOyen Witvliet, a psychology professor, gave the keynote address titled "Perserverance and Pay-Offs: Celebrating Student-Faculty Collaboration in a Decade of Interdisciplinary Forgiveness Research." Topics ranged from a classroom role-playing exercise on Civil War issues to a project focused on providing a Cameroonian village with clean drinking water. The celebration allows a space for students to share their exciting academic endeavors and also represents the rich Hope tradition of undergraduate research. First recognized in 2003 by the U.S. News and World Report as fourth in the nation for undergraduate research. Hope College is among only 35 other institutions of such honor. • Tally R e e v e r t s •

As the spring semester of the 2005-2006 school year wound down, student workers in Lubbers found themselves packing up their professors" offices for the four month internment in Graves and the library. After many years. Lubbers was preparing for a major renovation that would refresh its layout as well as its aesthetic quality. Soon after the faculty and staff had been relocated around the campus, the overhaul began. The $3 million dollar building project installed new windows and an air conditioning system; provided for twenty-eight new offices and a computer lab; updated classroom technology, including wireless access; and renewed the aesthetics. The building process maintained the classic exterior keeping Lubbers as one of the college's most venerable academic buildings. Faculty and staff moved back into the building just in time for classes to begin in the fall. The faculty were pleased with their new, refinished offices. The students greatly appreciated the new technologies and workspaces. And the air conditioning made everyone happy during the hot first month of classes. • Ryan Lincoln •

Hope College celebrated the restoration of its historic Skinner organ with a rededication concert on Tuesday, January 30 in Dimnent Memorial Chapel. Period accounts placed the original cost of the organ at $25,000. It was donated to the college by Barend Arendshorst and his sons William and John Arendsorst and dedicated and installed in 1929, the same year that the chapel was completed. As an antique produced in a bygone era the organ is irreplaceable, but its estimated value today is between $2 million and $4 million. Its recent restoration by the A. Thompson-Allen Company which emphasized preserving the o r g a n ' s original character—took nearly two years, f r o m January 2005 through the latter part of the fall semester. The entire organ, including all 2,932 pipes and the console, was removed and taken to New Haven for the work, through which the instrument was repaired and restored to its original factory specifications. In addition, the chambers housing the pipes were renovated and the chapel's roof drainage system was modified to repair and prevent water damage caused by the building's original design. The most m a j o r work previously done on the organ had been conducted more than 40 years earlier, in 1963. when it had been cleaned and completely refurbished. • J a s o n Cash •

Even as security measures internationally endeavor to prevent terrorists f r o m smuggling explosives onto aircraft. Dr. Roger Veldman of the Hope College engineering faculty is conducting research he hopes will make a difference if the unthinkable does happen. Veldman. an associate professor of engineering, is engaged in a multi-year, ongoing research effort to help aircraft better withstand internal explosions. His work has recently received funding f r o m the Science and Technology Directorate of the Department of Homeland Security, the third in a series of federal grants in support of his work in the wake of the 9-11 attacks in 2001. His work even caught the attention of local congressman Pete Hoekstra, the then Chairman of the House intelligence committee. Veldman, who has taught at Hope since 1998, has been investigating "aircraft hardening" since he was a doctoral student at Western Michigan University in the mid-1990s. His interest in the topic began while he was still an undergraduate, when a few days before Christmas in 1988 a b o m b destroyed Pan A m Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. The loss of life moved him.

V e l d m a n ' s research, which he pursues collaboratively with a team of three H o p e students, involves both conducting tests with explosives under controlled conditions at Batelle Memorial Institute's laboratories in Columbus, Ohio, and developing and evaluating computer models of the same situations. The models, he noted, are an important complement to the testing. If models can be developed that accurately reflect the actual events, tests could ultimately be conducted more cheaply and quickly via computer. V e l d m a n ' s research has progressed through the years f r o m exploring how simple sheets of aircraft aluminum react: to testing assemblies of sheeting and framework; to its current emphasis on determining lining materials that could absorb and deflect a blast near an aircraft's outer skin. He and his research team tested some such materials this summer, such as a honeycomb-shaped aluminum composite, work that will continue with the latest support.

4 0 Y6RRS M M a y of 2006 marked the 40th anniversary of the student exchange program between H o p e College and Meiji Gakuin University in Tokyo, Japan. The relationship between the two schools predates the program; a Hope graduate helped found Meiji Gakuin. In addition to normal semester-long programs, students f r o m Hope study at M G U as a M a y Term, and students f r o m M G U c o m e to Hope for a similar program each August. The M a y T e r m program has a consistent emphasis on Japanese culture, and students spend the first week traveling to various locations in Japan. "Hiroshima was by far one of the most powerful experiences of my life," said Jason Shirk, a participant this year. "It was one of those things you couldn't get out of a textbook." Other students were quick to agree that the experiences f r o m May Term were unforgettable. Students spent the next three weeks in Tokyo, attending classes at Meiji Gakuin and taking excursions into Y o k o h a m a and Kamakura. They also had the opportunity to explore T o k y o and its intricate mass transit system, one of the busiest in the world. According to Jon Dean, "Getting lost was easy. Finding the way back took a little bit of effort. And navigating the subway to class in the morning when you weren't quite awake took some getting used to." In addition to taking classes, students were able to experience Japanese home life during a weekendlong homestay program, spend time in a Japanese elementary school associated with Meiji Gakuin, hold a brief chapel service, and attend Kabuki plays, one of the more esoteric forms of Japanese entertainment. They also researched in Japan to round off projects started at Hope for presentation to their peers and professors. What made this year particularly special was the 40th anniversary celebration held at the end of the program, when Hope Provost James Boelkins and Assistant Provost Alfredo Gonzales graced M G U ' s campus with their presence. From the Japanese majors to those who were taking part to fulfill another General Education requirement, all parties involved enjoyed themselves to the fullest. • Travis Love • 72

A LlFctuell lived Dr. Paul Fried, long-time Hope professor, passed away on July 24, 2006. T h o u g h his death saddened the Hope c o m m u n i t y , they honored and celebrated a life full of service. B o m in G e r m a n y in 1919, Dr. Fried w a s the son of Austrian parents, his m o t h e r a medical doctor and his father a journalist. Because of their anti-Nazi ideas and outspoken nature, Dr. Fried's parents and brothers were sent to concentration c a m p s where they eventually died. Dr. Fried endured Nazi G e r m a n jail and deportation to Czechoslovakia before making it to the United States and Hope College. In addition to his degree f r o m Hope, he received a M.A. degree f r o m Harvard University and a Ph.D. f r o m the University of Erlangen. He served with the U.S. A r m y in the Intelligence Corps in the European Theatre of Operations and eventually with the U.S. Air Force Historical Research Division. He also served as an American translator during the Nuremberg W a r Trials. All these activities brought him back to the war that had destroyed his family. In 1953 Dr. Fried joined the H o p e faculty, beginning the Vienna S u m m e r School in 1956 and b e c o m i n g director of the international education p r o g r a m in 1964. During his time as director, he saw Hope and Meiji Gakuin University in Tokyo, Japan, create an exchange program for both students and faculty. At the heart of Dr. F r i e d ' s international interests was his desire to toster international understanding and a wider worldview for Hope students. Because of his success and dedication, he received the Gold Medal ol Merit from the Austrian government in 1968 and Hope C o l l e g e ' s Distinguished Alumni Award in 1984. These, however, are not a measure of his influence and the contributions he made to the Hope College, Holland, and international communities. As Hope mourned the loss ot Dr. Paul Fried, Hope also c o m m e m o r a t e d a life well lived. • Tally R e e v e r t s •

TRUTh B ₏ T o l d The weekend of January 11-14, 2007, brought authors, artists, and theologians to c a m p u s for the Hope and Holland communities to consider the theme and title for this y e a r ' s forum, "American Idols: Losing Our Address on the Way H o m e . " This time was set aside to think about important ideas, participate in profound discussion, share stories, and wrestle with heavy questions. Well known authors Sam Wells, Lauren Winner, and Donald Miller addressed large crowds with different perspectives while Jars of Clay and Derek W e b b approached the topic through music and panel discussions. These panel discussions included some of the major contributing speakers and also their respective spouses to discuss celebrity and the issues of image, both G o d ' s and h u m a n s ' . In regards to Sam Wells' keynote address, Nicole Brace recounted, "I thought Sam Wells' talk was insightful and incredibly artful. For the first two thirds of it, he slowly unfolded his story, then as he neared the end he began to draw all sorts of surprising conclusions. T h o u g h his British style was fairly reserved, he was candid, generous, and funny during the Q & A that followed. A n y o n e who can (like Wells) answer a question on the spot by weaving together Facebook. the Civil War, and the theological assumptions of the American church deserves some recognition. I ' m glad he c a m e . " Many students and community m e m b e r s discussed the contributers' ideas in follow-up conversations, some of which turned into book groups. This y e a r ' s gathering of great minds was part of a two-year long process that involved great organization and planning on the part of the Veritas Forum committee, producing several opportunities for which many took some time to think beyond daily life. •Tally Reeverts •

Students are able to witness the grandeur of St. S t e p h a n ' s Cathedral, w a n d e r the gardens of Schonbrunn, and get lost in the artwork of Hundertwasser, Klimt, and Schiele—and in addition to this, students are able to eat some of the finest cuisine in the world, including wiener schnitzel and Mozart pastries, and indulging in a large variety of activities that can only be enjoyed in Austria. The program also includes weekend trips to Budapest. Prague, Salzburg, and other Eastern European cities, which prove to be more than exciting and filled with adventure. This year. Dr. Stephan H e m e n w a y , Director of Vienna S u m m e r School, and the Austro-American Institute worked together to develop a weekend dedicated to honoring each institution's hard work and contribution to the lives of undergraduate students. The highlight of the weekend was the traditional Viennese Ball held at the Grand Hotel in the heart of Vienna. Students and alumni alike dressed in formals and waltzed in a grandiose ballroom, complete with elegant lighting, a small orchestra, and a variety of wines. All who attended danced until the band tired out. and then b o m b a r d e d a tiny cafe for breakfast, before being whisked away by the U - B a h n . • Kristi O r a n g e •

J e f f H o l t m a n k i c k s i t i n t o g e a r for t h e f i n a l s t r e t c h ( s e e p a g e 1 8 2 ) .

NOW ,T'S pepsonnl The Hope College W o m e n ' s Volleyball team decided that this year, they were going to take it personally. After missing out on an at-large bid to the N C A A tournament last year, this year's team took advantage of some deciding matches to receive that elusive at-large bid. This was the first trip to the N C A A regional tournament for the four seniors on the team, and the first trip for the program in six years. Even though the N C A A intro-

ductions and processional were experiences to remember, the most memorable moment was the first round win over top-seeded Ohio Northern. Deena Van Assen reflected on the win by saying, "They had the top seed and beat us the last time we played them. But we were the better team, and we came to play. It really showed the selection committee that we deserved to be there." The success of the season was also amplified by the opportunity to





have home court in the new Devos Fieldhouse. The atmosphere of the building contributed to the play of the Flying Dutch in front of sell-out crowds. "We were able to reach our goals as a team, and I think we each attained the individual goals that we set for ourselves as well," said senior Amber Hoezee. Even with sixteen girls, the large team was able to unify and bring respect to a program that was looked over last season. • Kim Brandes •

N € V € R Give Up With new changes in the conference schedule, the team had a lot to adjust to. Of the twenty-three w o m e n who appeared at tryouts, twenty-three were kept. It appeared to be a rebuilding year to the players, but Head Coach Leigh Sears and Assistant Coach Lindsey Engelsman had confidence in the team's ability. Captains of the team included seniors Holly Nestle and Rachael Sauerman. and juniors Sarah Cochrane and Ellie Tresslar.

The season began with several close g a m e s that unfortunately turned into loses on the record. With a tough non-league schedule, the Flying Dutch were prepared for the regular season. Despite an early setback against Adrian, the w o m e n continued to fight and c a m e back f r o m behind, which is what they did best. They began league play in last place, but ended with a respectable second place finish. In the last g a m e of the season, H o p e traveled to Calvin where

they lost 3-1, but achieved their goal of upsetting the Knight's scoreless season. Four players received All-MIAA honors; Cochrane and VanBeek made first team while Nestle and Molenaar made second team. Tresslar and Masghati received honorable mention. Though the year did not end as planned, the w o m e n accomplished their objective of being able to play ninety minutes of solid soccer. • Sarah Cochrane and Holly Nestle •

WITIH O As winners of last y e a r ' s M I A A Championship, the D u t c h m e n returned this year to d e f e n d their title with a passion. So far, this decade has been the most successful one for the H o p e College M e n ' s Soccer team, coached by Steve Smith. This y e a r ' s team captains included seniors Jeff Carlson, Craig Root, and Patrick M c M a h o n . After suffering some early nonleague losses and a loss in their season opener, the team went on to a winning streak of 10 straight g a m e s in which


they beat rivals Calvin 4-2 and defeated previously unbeaten Albion 2-1. That winning streak, combined with a final league victory against Alma, clinched an outright M I A A C h a m p i o n s h i p title. The team went on to lose a close thriller against Ohio Wesleyan in the opening round of the N C A A tournament. The game was tied 1-1 and ended in a 5 - 3 penalty kick shootout. Seven Hope players received AU-MIAA honors. Making the first team were sophomore Jack Abe, se-

nior Patrick M c M a h o n , senior Craig Root, junior Mike Amerman, and junior Dan Tresslar who was also named the league's most valuable player. N a m e d to the second team were senior Joey On - and freshman Kevin Bartosek. Of those players, A m e r m a n . M c M a h o n , and Tresslar also received All-Region honors. Once again the team was successful. They had defended their title and were M I A A C h a m p i o n s for a second straight year. • Katie W a n d e l l • M e n ' s Soccer 173

T H E This season was filled with emotion. After three consecutive non-league losses, toe" Dutchmen rifled off seven consecutive league wins which led to a M1AA Championship. Coach Dean Kreps dressed over one hundred young men this season and made sure that each player had a specific role on the team. The team was led by the senior class who in 2003 was part of the last MIAA Championship team. The major wins for the year were on the road versus Alma and Olivet. At 174


CHAMPIONS Alma, the Dutchmen came back from a twenty point halftime deficit, aided by junior David Booko, who scored six touchdowns that day. At Olivet, the defense ran the table and held the league-leading rushing offense to minus twenty four yards on the ground. After winning the conference the team was given an automatic bid to the playoffs where it met Mount Union College. The season ended with a loss on the road to the Purple Raiders. Senior Captain Matt Erb said. "Playing football at Hope

College has been a great experience. The past four years I have made friendships that will last forever, I am thankful I was a part of such a great program." Along with winning the MIAA Championship, Hope placed seven players on the All-MIAA first teams: junior David Booko; junior Jacob Droppers; sophomore Eric Ladomersky; junior Kevin VandenBosch; junior Matt Rugenstein; senior Zach Huizing; and junior Joey Goeb. • Kevin Roschek •

They followed that up with some strong showings at other invitationals to prepare


for MIAA competitions. Hope finished second at both M I A A meets, leading to a second place finish in the conference. Following conference action, the men set their eyes on the N C A A regionals. The Dutchmen went into the regional meet as an unknown and left with a fifth place overall finish - their highest finish since 1991. On top of the team success, TerLouw and junior Seth Weener each qualified individually for the N C A A Div. Ill National meet and had strong

showings despite a treacherous course. Leading the way for the Dutchmen was TerLouw, who received Most Valuable Runner for his strong finishes throughout the season. Sophomore Rob Bailey received the Most Improved Runner award after dropping two minutes off of his 8k time and being a strong contributor. The Best Newcomer was awarded to freshman Ben Miller who was a consistent fifth man for the team. • James Ralston •

BEQINNINQ This season witnessed the beginning of a new era for the M e n ' s S w i m m i n g Team. Heavy recruiting d o n e by Assistant Coach Jake Taber brought in thirteen talented freshmen to bolster the roster to thirty-one, the largest swimming team in H o p e ' s history. The team was led by senior captains Jake Holton and Kyle Waterstone and junior captain W a d e Engers, as well as six other experienced seniors. Preseason training began as soon as 182 Sports


the athletes were on campus, as well as the completion of many team traditions, including a camping trip. BBQs, the nick-naming team members, and an open water swim in Lake Michigan. The season started officially in September with the usual day-in and day-out practicing, but for this team it was anything but typical. The combination of senior leadership and young talent provided an outstanding training environment that led to a second-place

ERA M I A A finish, two new school records (freshmen Philip Heyboer in the 400 yard IM and Ryan Nelis in the 100 yard Butterfly), and seven men qualifying for the N C A A championships in Houston, TX. The national team of freshmen Heyboer, Nelis, Matthew Rose, sophomores Stephen Kurti and Ryan Vogelzang, junior Chas Vanderbroek and senior Holton went on to accomplish many season best performances. • Jacob Holton •

spirit of ^ This year's teams cheered both the football and basketball teams at Hope to MIAA Championship titles. The cheerleaders have the integral role of keeping the enthusiasm and moral of the crowd up throughout the game. Their cheers are the heart and soul of the atmosphere on game day—providing energy, spirit, life and intensity. Every year for four days in early August, the Hope squad attends an annual camp in Milwaukee, Wiscon-




sin. It is the largest regional cheerleading camp in the country and hundreds of cheerleaders take part. This year, Hope took home a first place trophy for the Fight Song Competition in the Small Coed Division as well as blue ribbons in all their evaluations. In addition, the Hope team received the Honorable Leadership Trophy. They were voted by all squads in the division as the team that they would most like to be a member of, and the team that made

everyone s camp experience more enjoyable. Surprisingly, there were no seniors on Hope's squad this year. Instead, the teams were led by a strong junior class. The elected captains for the football season were juniors Emily Mills, Amanda Scheeringa, and Jon Wissink. For the basketball season, the captains were juniors Jon Wissink, Alicia Voyles, and Amanda Scheeringa. •Katie Wandell*

With an emphasis on outworking the opponent, the team played every game this season with a sense of urgency. The year started rough with a weekend trip to Wisconsin in which the Dutchmen lost both games to tough CCIW teams. The Dutchmen responded to this setback by winning 16 straight games and rolling through the M1AA league play, winning by an average margin of nearly 20 points. The Dutchmen finished the regular season with 21-3 record, 13-1 in conference.

A first-place finish in the league, however, was not the only goal for this year's team. While hosting the MIAA tournament at the DeVos, the Dutchmen suffered a tough loss to rival Calvin. Thanks to outstanding play throughout the season, the Dutchmen earned an atlarge bid into the N C A A tournament. The Dutchmen traveled to Aurora, IL to face Chicago in the first round. A strong performance by the Dutchmen, led by senior and conference M V P Steve Cramer, set up a record 5th

game between Hope and Calvin for the season. Hope then moved back into the Sweet Sixteen for the second consecutive year. The Dutchmen would then go on to beat Carroll College 89-77 at Wisconsin Stevens-Point and move into the Elite Eight where they eventually lost to Washington University 58-55. The Dutchmen finished with a 26-5 record, three All-Conference players and an Elite Eight appearance, making this season a memorable one. • Brett Jager • Men's Basketball

RHE NCUJ side pF o RIVOIRY This season, Hope made history in a 99-92 dual-meet victory over Calvin. They had not defeated Calvin since 1985. Senior Scott Langille said, "It was exciting to beat Calvin for the first time because we achieved a goal that had seemed unattainable when I first came to Hope. W e really came together as a team and worked hard to fill holes where we were weak." Hope went on to finish second in the MIAA behind Calvin . "I thought the Championships went well," senior

Aaron Kenemer said. "The highlight of the season was the Calvin dual meet, but 1 thought we really had some good performances throughout the season. W e realized at the Championships that we weren't as deep as Calvin, but w e ' r e happy with the second place finish." The team ended with a 5-1 MIAA record under the leadership of its co-captains: seniors Kenemer, Kyle Smith, and Ryan TerLouw, and junior Nate VandeGutche. Four Hope athletes earned first place at the MIAA Cham-

pionships: senior Andrew Denninger, Langile, sophomore Sean Bergsma and TerLouw. TerLouw also qualified for the Division III national meet where he finished fourth in the 1500 meter run. "Ryan is one of the most humble people I have ever run with," Kenemer said. "His performances are a direct result from his hard work." TerLouw is just one example of the hard work that the athletes put in and the results that come from their efforts. • J a m e s R a l s t o n •

Repichin The team began the year under the continued leadership of Coach Karen Page, in her tenth season as coach. The team contained three returning letterwinners and was made up of seven freshmen, a sophomore, a junior, and a senior. Ashley Leary, the t e a m ' s sole senior, led this year's team as captain. The schedule started with several indoor matches at H o p e ' s Dewitt Tennis Center which left the Dutch with a 1-2 record. For spring break.


the team took its annual trip to Hilton Head, South Carolina. There they had a four game winning streak that ended with a 5-4 overall record entering the regular season. Five of the t e a m ' s nine regular season dual matches were at home. Hope beat rivals Calvin 7-2 and edged St. M a r y ' s into their first M I A A loss, 5-4. Hope ended regular season play with a 6-2 M I A A record and a third


place finish overall (a spot higher than last season's finish). Likewise, the team finished third in the conference tournament to close the season.

On ond oFFTh€ COURT The previous season ended with a second place finish to the Kalamazoo hornets, which left the team with a sense of desire. There were big shoes to fill with the departing of five contributing seniors but the remaining players were up to the challenge. The team, led by the sole senior, captain Stephen Malvitz, was comprised of three freshman and six sophomores. The only way the team was going to be able to compete was if they trained hard. In Hope tennis terms, that

meant being the first ones on the court and the last ones off. They started the season with a 2-1 record before traveling to South Carolina for spring break matches. There they had a record of 32 for the combination of a 5-3 overall record. With the remainder of their matches, Hope would have only one home match. The t e a m ' s goal was to make every tennis court like their home court. They did this with their infamous " L e t ' s G o D u t c h " chant. The " H o p e

Road Warriors," as Coach Gorno called them, ended the year 4th in the M I A A with Malvitz making the All-MIAA first team and freshman John Gardner making A l l - M I A A second team. The tennis team continued its sportsmanship legacy by winning another Stone Memorial Award; this year, presented to Malvitz. Hope has won eight of the last ten awards, confirming that the athletes apply what they have learned at Hope to all aspects of their lives. • S t e v e M a l v i t z • Men's Tennis

The DREAM College Softball: some see it as just a game, to others it means living out a childhood dream. The 2007 Flying Dutch Softball team consisted of 21 players; nine juniors, three sophomores, and nine freshmen, along with Head Coach Karla Wolters and Assistant Coaches Deb and Matt Sleeman. The team left their spring break in Florida realizing they had to step up to be competitive in the MIAA. As junior Katie Immink stated, "Florida is 198


a n me that brings the team together; it helps the team bond for the rest of the season." With snow and rainouts, the final week of regular season held a crucial amount of MIAA games, eight games in six days. Each game required the determination and strength that the players worked on during the off season. The team ended with a 25-13 record and concluded their season as

third in the conference. If the team was satisfied with third, then there would be no motivation to work hard for next year. However, with the team's love of the game and passion to play, working hard in the off season to be a better team is not a chore, but a desire. The 2008 Flying Dutch have already started to train for next season, their first season in a new stadium, and another season to live out a childhood dream. • Kylee B r o u w e r •

Hope may not have made it to the N C A A tournament, been league champs, or even won an individual tournament, but while those things are applaudable, they are not what defined this team and made them great. The fall season kicked off with a two-day tournament at G V S U , and while the players were less than enthusiastic about their finish, they remained optimistic about the rest of the season. After Hope played in several touma-

ments, the fall season was interrupted by an early snow before the final 36hole M I A A tournament that changed it to only 18 holes. Unfortunately, the team never made it to Bedford Valley for the tournament due to an auto accident on their way there. The accident ended the season abruptly; thankfully, there were no serious injuries. The spring season got off to a shaky start when April snow caused H o p e ' s home tournament to be can-

R€fiTn€SS celled. In the MIAA, Hope ended up in fourth place at the final N C A A qualifying tournament, and while that may not seem like an overly amazing finish, the team was still happy with how they played. The Hope College W o m e n ' s Golf Team doesn't have a trophy to remember their golf season by, but they have the lifelong friendships that will always remind them of their accomplishments. • Holly Sneller •

Dutchmen continued a decade long legacy of success—by completing their best season thus far. Following last year's M I A A cochampionship, the Dutchmen won an outright M I A A championship title this year. Leading this successful team were its co-captains: junior Matt Sattler and seniors Mike Rodgers, Matt Van Beek, Bill Lutke. and Mike VanderVelde. Of the t e a m ' s talented roster, seven players made all-conference teams: Rodgers made first team and was

voted the league's most valuable pitcher; junior shortstop Brian Baker made first team and was voted the most valuable position player; Mike VanderVelde, sophomore Matt VanderVelde, and sophomore Dustin Wuis also made the first team. In addition. Lutke and junior Sattler were named to the second team. In addition to winning the M I A A championship, the Dutchmen competed in the N C A A tournament in the Mid-east Regional. In this doubleelimination tournament, the team suf-

fered an unfortunate 9-1 opening round loss against the defending national champions, Marietta. The Dutchmen then bounced back with an impressive 5-3 win against Wooster, the nation's top-ranked team, before being eliminated from the tournament in a close game (6-5) against Ohio Wesleyan. With the win against Wooster in the N C A A tournament, the team's overall record was 29-13, setting a new school record. • Katie Wandell • Baseball

Founded in 1974 as a Club Sport, Hope College Lacrosse is one of the oldest lacrosse programs in the state. The team has long competed with schools in the Great Lakes Region as an independent club, but has recently joined the Central Collegiate Lacrosse Association (CCLA) conlcrcnce of the M e n ' s Collegiate Lacrosse Association (MCLA). In this conference, Hope's team has the opportunity to compete in regional and national championships that are overseen by the MCLA. Before the creation of the C C L A conference, Hope was the sole source of any sort of regional tournament that declared a champion. Although a sanctioned contest does now exist, Hope has also started a MIAA tournament that now occurs every spring. The team chose to do this partly because of tradition, but also because we believe that it provides a place for non-CCLA MIAA teams to exhibit their skills and compete for a title. • M a t t G r o s s m a n •

The Hope W o m e n s ' Lacrosse team had a strong line-up this season with many returning players, including six seniors. They also had many skilled f r e s h m a n join the team. They started practices in the fall and continued training throughout the year focusing on ball handling skills, running an effective offense and powerful defense, and communicating as a whole team. All of their g a m e s were played in March and April versus teams predominately f r o m the West Michigan area. This year they hosted a playday at Hope on April 14. Four teams attended and despite the cold, the day was a success. The t e a m ' s record reflects a losing season, but does not accurately show the progress and improvement the team made. T h e sport of lacrosse is quickly growing, as is the w o m e n ' s lacrosse program at Hope. They are excited for the coming years and the opportunities to face strong competition in the future. • Allison P a u t l e r • Front r o w : C o u r t n e y M i l l e r , A m y L i n t o n , Colleen Kelly, Sarah Havlik, Jami Rubin, Sarah Shrier; Back r o w : A s h l e y T i m p n e r , Allison Pautler, Lauren Brierley, Kayla K a t t e r h e i n r i c h , Caitie Leads, T a r a h F r o n , C h e l s e a S h o r t , S y d n e y K o n n y , K a r i n S w e a s , Tracy B e n j a m i n , H e a t h e r G a r r e t t .

e College does indeed have a water ski team! Although the ski team was only recently recognized by the college they have been around for ten years. Despite the college's small size, and their independent, student-organized team, the team does very well for itself. They compete in trick skiing and wakeboarding, slaloming, and j u m p i n g - all possible events. The ladies and gents are heros as they scramble out of sleeping bags and the warmth of tents into their still-wet suits and are off the dock at eight am on cool September mornings. They may be some of the greatest cheerleaders around, and they earn the respect of Big Ten schools year after year. The water skiers and wakeboarders head out to tournaments on ski lakes around the Midwest weekend after weekend each fall and spring. They go for time on the water, great competition, camping and a unique type of family! The team will only continue to grow and improve over the next few years. • Katy Eagen • Katy Eagen a t t e m p t s a j u m p d u r i n g a meet. • Katy Eagen exits t h e w a t e r a f t e r a run. • p h o t o s courtesy of Katy Eagen •

Orientation weekend.

Residential Life is dedicated towards ensuring quality living for the 2,500 students on Hope College's campus. Their mission was to maintain a safe and fun environment for the current and incoming students. The duty of the RAs was to apply their skill to help each of the students they lived with, depending on their own individual needs. An RA funtions not only as a person to go to for help, but also as a friend, companion and confidant. This year provided a very strong Residential Life staff within each dorm, apartmenl, and cottage community. Each R A had their own unique qualities that benefitted those who lived with them. The Res. Life community also sponsored events such as the hot-dog eating contest and brought a new pool table to Kollen Hall. Right before Spring Break, the 1:1 campaign continued Res. Life's mission to promote safe behaviors in regards to alcohol. • Hillary Delhagen •

P nclnoRed in hope Anchored in Hope, Orientation 2006, could never have taken place without the Orientation staff made up of a group of current students dedicated to giving the new students the best possible introduction to Hope College. The two Student Directors this year were Jason Cash and Ana Frikker. They selected the rest of the staff during the spring semester, and spent the summer planning and preparing for Orientation Weekend. The first group of staff members that the Directors selected were the 23 Assistant Directors. They assisted with staff selection, and also returned to campus ten days before the new students arrived to help with the final stages of preparation and to train the nearly 200 Orientation Assistants. During the summer and the training days, the staff bonded with one another and worked hard prepare for the arrival of the new students on August 25, 2006. During Orientation Weekend, the Orientation Assistants helped the new students move in and met with them in small groups. The Assistant Directors worked with parents and families, and the Directors oversaw everything. The weekend was a smashing success, thanks to all of the staff who gave of their time and energy. • Adriana Frikker • T h e c o l l e g e j o u r n e y b e g i n s as f r e s h m e n register w i t h t h e Residential Life staff. • Assistant d i r e c t o r , A b b y D e V u y s t speaks t o O r i e n t a t i o n Assistants on Freshmen M o v e - I n D a y . • p h o t o s c o u r t e s y o f PR. •

What once began in T a c o m a , Washington, with one man choosing to make a difference and raise money for cancer by doing what he loved - running marathons, has spread to c o m m u n i t i e s throughout the United States. It has even reached our little community of Hope College. This year 518 students and faculty of Hope College gathered together for one cause — to fight cancer! In doing so. they participants brought hope to Hope College. They gathered together to honor those who have survived cancer, those that have died f r o m cancer, and those who are fighting it one day at a time. This year Hope C o l l e g e ' s Relay for Life raised $40,688. The efforts of Hope College to bring awareness and to help fight cancer will not go unnoticed and the lives of everyone involved will be dramatically changed. It's about being a c o m m u n i t y that takes up the fight. • Erin J e n k i n s •

In the fall of 2006, 39 individual freshmen embarked on a three week journey to grow both physically and emotionally. They stepped onto the practice field as individuals, but left as one family. Even Year Pull takes great pride in what is known as the pull family. It is the character of service and self-sacrifice that allows these individuals to grow closer than ever imagined. The pullers went through a rigorous training regime for three weeks in preparation for Pull Day. The coaches had the honor of teaching and guiding the freshmen through training. Under the close supervision of the eleven coaches (who were on the '08 pull team), pullers and moralers alike were taught how to lie on the rope, how to respond to call-sets, what it meant to "inch-up" and what it meant to be a part of the Even Year tradition and work as a team. On September 23, 2006, the rigorous training and preparation culminated on the banks of the Black River. Led by Pull coach Dan Tobert, who gave out the call-sets, the Pull team of 2010 attempted to rip rope from their unseen rivals on the other side of the river. Even Year Pull holds great respect for Odd Year, its school, and most of all each other. Pullers did not pull for themselves, but for the man in front of them, behind them and the family that supports them. Enough is never enough. • A a r o n K n i q h t o n




All Odds

V/enqefince Beginning with the rally in the first week of school, the class of 2009 established a tenacious tone for the 109th Pull. With more pullers and twice as many moralers trying out for the team, the intensity level rose as they prepared to defeat their perpetual Even Y e a r rival, the class of 2010. With the sound of their competition only a block away, the team put their hearts, aggression, pride, selflessness, and determination for revenge on the line everyday. The t e a m ' s inspiration was " V e n g e a n c e " ; vengeance over their 2005 loss of twenty feet one inch to the 2008 Pull team. "Sharing the same goal with everyone else on the team really brought us together as a family," said Gretchen Davis, morale for pit 15. "It d o e s n ' t matter if this is your first time trying out or returning after last y e a r ' s loss. W e are a family." The coaches selected for the 2011 Pull team plan on using the m o m e n t u m of this m o n u m e n t a l win to teach technique and values to next y e a r ' s freshmen. • M e g h a n Beachum • Above: Ruth Hagan arid Elliott Mast reap vengeance on t h e 2010 Pull Team. • Below; "17 U p !

During the first Saturday of November, a month of rehearsing culminated in Nykerk Night, as a panel of nine judges score the events to determine a winner. The freshmen song girls performed "Our Favorite Things," the freshmen play was "Back to the Future," and the orator Laura Kay Stritzke spoke on the topic "Letters to the World." Even year displays unique traditions, from the seating arrangement of the song girls to the pull references in the play.

N y k e r k is all about working hard, having fun, and participating in the traditions that m a k e Nykerk great! The w o m e n and men of the Class of 2009 turned out in large n u m b e r s to participate once again in the Nykerk C u p Competition. The Orator for the Class of '09 was Ayannah Abiade. She spent three weeks prior to Nykerk preparing her speech titled. "Proceed at Your O w n Risk." The '09 Play this year w a s " K n i g h t m a r e on 9th Street," starring 15 sophomore w o m e n . While these w o m e n memorized, rehearsed, and worked on their costumes, their Playboys built their set and kept them in good spirits. The 90 w o m e n of '09 Song worked hard to perfect their sound and motions in "Happily Ever After," and their Morale boys amused them with skits and brought smiles to their faces with posters and gifts. Although preparing for the competition was a lot of work, it was also a lot of fun. The traditions and unity that make up Odd Year Nykerk give it a special place in the hearts of all participants, whether past or present. On Nykerk Night, the Class of '09 proudly performed their best, and were ecstatic to ^ h ^ t h e ^ C u p , but the greatest reward was the friendships they f o r m e d through Nykerk. • A d r i a n a F r i k k e r •

With high energy dance routines for football season, basketball season provided an opportunity to incorporate some hip hop into the choreography. Another highlight of every season is the annual Guy/Girl Performance. The squad was also invited back to perform for the second time at a Detroit Pistons game. The Pistons performance was a great way for the team to bond during the three-hour car ride. The squad ended its official season with a tribute to its Miracle Child, Tatiana, at Dance Marathon. With great hope lor the future, the squad looks to add m e m b e r s to both teams next year and just keep on dancing! • Kristen Rose •

Sacred Dance exists to glorify, serve, and worship our Holy God through choreographed and improvisational movement. to realize G o d ' s purposes f o r us, and to fulfill them with our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. In addition to exploring this realm of worship through m o v e m e n t , we use dance to reach out to worshipers at Hope, in Holland, and elsewhere, by drawing them into sacred worship, teaching them, and calling them to greater purposes. Sacred dance is not a club or a performance group - we are a ministry w h o accepts dancers with little or no experience as well as those with many years of experience in dance. All are w e l c o m e to join in dance worshipping our Lord. • A m y P r u t z m a n •

The Hope College Gospel Choir is composed of more than 90 students who have one goal in mind: to glorify their God through the art of worship while using different types of Gospel and Contemporary Christian music styles. Under the leadership of choir director Bryan Lowe, the choir traveled to many churches around the area throughout the year to participate in various worship services.The Choir has also worshiped with the college's chapel band in Dimnent Memorial Chapel during chapel and Gathering services. The choir performed alongside the c a m p u s groups Silent Praise and Sacred Dance. During the year the choir also worships with other college and university c a m p u s choirs around the area during the Gospel Festival. • Chris Lewis •





UJ€R Silent Praise is a student-run organization that seeks to praise God through the use of American Sign Language (ASL) with worship music. M e m b e r s do not need to have any prior knowledge and experience with A S L or the Deaf culture—in fact, exposure to a new culture is one of the many reasons why m e m b e r s might be drawn to the group. Silent Praise met every week to learn n e w songs one sign at a time, which were taught to the g r o u p ' s leaders beforehand by the g r o u p ' s mentor, an official interpreter. These songs ranged f r o m old-fashioned h y m n s to upbeat, modern hits, including " S h o w Your Power," and " H o w Great Thou Art." The group began in 1996, and since then has seen a growth f r o m five m e m b e r s to upwards of thirty. About two times per month, a group of three to five m e m b e r s attended a local church and performed along with their worship team or as a special event. In addition. Silent Praise was actively involved on campus, including p e r f o r m a n c e s at chapels and Gatherings and in special events, such as the Gospel C h o i r ' s Spring Concert. • Ross Knoll • Front r o w : Emily Slavicek, Theresa W i g t o n , Heidi

B«nn<=R Y€fiR The Hope College Chapel band, which leads the c a m p u s community in worship three times a week at chapel and Sunday nights at the Gathering, underwent a change in leadership this past year. With the midyear departure of Dwight Beal during the 05-06 school year, the worship team was left without a director until the C a m p u s Ministries team hired Josh Banner as Minister of Arts and Music. He began at their annual start of school retreat, and progressed nicely over the semester. Also, the team was able to record a C D full of this y e a r ' s favorite songs, as well as a few old hymns as well. Entitled " A w a k e My Soul." it was a studio record instead of the usual live recording but was still well received by many students. Jonathan O e g e m a said, "This recording does exactly what it's name says. Listening to this C D is a great way to bring back memories of the j o y f u l and uplifting chapel services that we had over the past year." • M a t t W i x o n • Josh B a n n e r , Paul C h a m n e s s , a n d Jason D e W a a r d are w o r k i n g in t h e n e w s t u d i o i n t h e b a s e m e n t o f t h e c h a p e l .

In the fall of 2006, Will Nettleton started a Hope-based chapter of Acting on A I D S (AoA), an organization to create awareness and activism of the global A I D S pandemic at colleges across the nation. Here, A o A has strived to learn, discern, and then act on the H I V / A I D S pandemic. Hope participated in the Lives are at Stake Campaign on Word A I D S Day 2006 where 1250 pictures of HIV affected children on stakes were placed in the Pine Grove to be picked up and worn by people w h o would then read and pray about the child. Also, A o A along with a Hope a l u m n a raised $1400 that allowed the first official HIV testing, counseling, and treatment referral to begin on January 19, 2007. Other events included the Grand Rapids A I D S Walk, organizing speakers, and attending the national A o A conference. As a new student organization, AoA plans to continue to raise awareness and advocate on behalf of those affected by H I V / A I D S . • W i l l ' i m N e t t l e t o n •

Founded in the fall o f 2 0 0 5 . the Hope chapter is a part of the national organization, E W B - U S A that is a non-profit organization that seeks to bring a higher quality of life to developing communities worldwide. Students achieve this through the implementation of sustainable engineering projects. The Hope chapter was given the opportunity to help bring a cleaner, more available water supply to the small village of Nkuv, Cameroon in West Africa. Twenty engineering and nursing students worked together throughout the year to develop a system that would provide more accessible clean water and also teach the villagers about health and hygiene. Members of E W B - H o p e traveled to Nkuv twice during the 2006-2007 school year to test the effectiveness of the biosand water filters that were installed in May 2006. The teams also focused on learning about the c o m m u n i t y ' s current health status, beginning to construct a water d e l i v e ^ ^ v s t e r ^ w i t h i n the village, and developing a relationship with the members of the community. • Becky L a t h r o p •

Led by President Laura Stark, Vice-President Brian Straw, Director of Communications Shannon Craig, and Director of Finance & Administration Danielle Revers, the Hope Democrats had a successful and busy year. The Democrats kept busy volunteering at the Ottawa Democratic Parly Headquarters and helping Psychology Professor Scott VanderStoep with his State Senate run. To help raise awareness about voting, the Democrats co-sponsored a Voter Registration Drive with the Hope Republicans. In October, the Hope Democrats hosted Mark Brewer, chair of the Michigan Democratic Party, Senator Carl Levin and Governor Jennifer Granholm. The Hope Democrats celebrated election night success with a party while watching the results come in. Election night did not see the end of activity from the Democrats, who held a successful bone marrow registration event, sponsored a candlelight vigil in honor of the fallen soldiers in Iraq, co-sponsored a State of the Union viewing with the Hope Republicans, and participated in a nationwide community kick-off day for Senator Barack O b a m a ' s campaign. • Shannon Craig •

The mid-term elections of 2006 served as another powerful catalyst for Hope Republicans' activities. The organization hosted several events including a visit by Representative Pete Hoekstra and gubernatorial candidate and Hope alumnus Dick DeVos, Also, the organization sponsored and participated in some wonderful on c a m p u s functions. As per tradition, the m e m b e r s walked in the H o m e c o m i n g parade. Several students donned campaign shirts, carried placards, and passed out flyers with candy promoting the candidates. Hope Republicans served free root beer and treats at the S A C sponsored Haunted Vault in Kollen in the fall. In the spring, the Hope Republicans partnered with the Hope Democrats to host a State of the Union Address party. The event was extremely well attended and demonstrated the w o n d e r f u l relationship these two organizations have historically had on campus. M a n y of the Hope Republicans leaders are seniors; therefore, the organization is very grateful for their leadership the past couple years and is excited for the future. • R y a n Lincoln • H o p e Republican m e m b e r i n t r o d u c e s Dick DeVos' this fall at an e v e n t c o o r d i n a t e d by t h e H o p e Republicans. • Act i v e m e m b e r s o f t h e g r o u p s h o w t h e i r s u p p o r t f o r D e V o s d u r i n g t h e H o m e c o m i n g Parade. • Dick D e V o s speaks t o an a u d i e n c e a t D i m n e n t C h a p e l r e g a r d i n g c u r r e n t issues a n d his p l a n if e l e c t e d g o v e r n o r . • P h o t o s C o u r t e s y o f PR •

The 2007 book marks the 90th anniversary of the Milestone yearbook. The cover and divider pages were designed to reflect previous years, as covered through actual photographs used in previous books. The theme, "Recollection"" also stemmed from these past editions of the Milestone. With a core staff of eleven students, the Milestone staff ranges f r o m freshmen to seniors with varying levels of experience. They started their year with a trip to the Walsworth Yearbook Publishing plant in Marceline, Missouri, to design the cover for the 2007 book and to see how the Hope yearbooks are published. As the year drew to a close, staff members spent increasing amounts of time working on layouts and placing photos. The staff continues to improve the quality of the book it produces, while providing a timeless m e a n s for students to recollect this year of their lives at Hope. • M e g a n Pu r t e e *

The Inter-Fraternity Council is the governing body of the m e n ' s Greek system at Hope College. They were led this year by their president, Christian Piers, and advised by Matt D ' O y l y . The men of the Inter-Fraternity Council decided this would be a year of change, and through hard work and determination there was much progress made. Greek men of all chapters united in the Pine Grove for an early fall barbecue and extended the invite to all Hope College men. Through the support of the administration and the implementation of IFC, every Greek man received a personalized Greek Life t-shirt, which helped develop unity among brothers of all organizations. The Inter-Fraternity Council facilitated another successful winter rush with many new faces joining the ranks of each fraternity. In the spring, the IFC helped organize the annual Greek Week celebration on H o p e ' s campus with fun events for all Greeks to enjoy. Along with each of these events, the Council was directly involved with Greek Men Take a Stand, a group that was started two years ago by Christian Piers. This organization is directly involved in educating and keeping each Greek man at Hope accountable for their behavior towards women. They also worked with the Center for W o m e n in Transition. All in all, it was another great year for the Inter-Fraternity Council and Greek life as a whole. • Paul Carollo • C h r i s t i a n P i e r s , p r e s i d e n t o f IFC, l e a d s a w e e k l y m e e t i n g . • M e m b e r s o f t h e C o s m o p o l i t i a n f r a t e r n i t y t i e r i b b o n s o n a t r e e as a s y m bol t h r o u g h a p r o g r a m called FRAT, Fraternities Reaching A c c o u n t a b i l i t y T o g e t h e r , w h i c h w a s o r g a n i z e d b y IFC. • p h o t o s c o u r t e s y o f M e g h a n B e a c h u m a n d C h r i s t i a n Piers •

Senior and President of the Fraternal Society, Ryan Payne volunteered on the Family Relations committee for Dance Marathon. He is seen here w i t h the their Miracle Child, Dylan.



The Fraternal Society was established in 1834 at Union College in Schenectady. N Y by ten men w h o believed in the pursuit of friendship, love, and truth. In 1864. Dr. Philip Phelps. Jr., a Prater a l u m n u s and then president of the Holland Academy, re-activated the Fraternal Society. T w o years later the academy b e c a m e H o p e College, with Dr. Phelps as its president. Praters have helped to ameliorate the already beautiful Hope College c a m p u s by bearing their names on many academic buildings. The Fraternal Society has perhaps the c o l l e g e ' s most f a m o u s alumni; A.J. Muste, an activist in the United States civil rights m o v e m e n t ; Dr. James Poppen, neurosurgeon who operated on the assassinated President Kennedy; M a y o Hadden. retired admiral of the U.S. Navy; William Wichers, Knight of the Orange; John Kuizenga, eminent theologian; and James Bultman, the current president of Hope College. The thirty-one active Praters are seeking a wide variety of degrees in order to leave legacies as their alumni have. In athletics there are m e m b e r s in football, soccer, hockey, lacrosse, baseball, and track. During Greek W e e k the Praters, along with their sister sorority, the Sigma Sigmas, captured the highly coveted wiffle-ball championship. Outside of their studies and sporting endeavors the Fraternal Society finds time to give back to the community, ' participating in their annual Stu Post raffle which raises money for P a r k i n s o n ' s Disease. If you looked at the dance floor of the gym you may have seen some Praters getting down at Dance Marathon. They also put on a Thanksgiving Party for the CASA students. T o wind down all m e m b e r s head north for the end-of-the-year festival known as " H o g Bash", where the active members roast a pig. The mission of the Fraternal Society is to willfully suspend ourselves into the balance of spiritual, mental, physical, and emotional capacity by upholding the standards of the fathers of our organization. This includes enriching new members of Fraternal with the ways of brotherhood. The Fraternal society strives to create and nurture leaders necessary for the world outside of H o p e College. The brotherhood is undying, the loyalty is unquestionable, and the friendship of fraternal is forever. • Brian Gatliff • Fraternal • O m i c r o n Kappa Epsilon

Under the leadership ot two presidents, Laura Rojeski in the fall semester and Kate Stacey in the spring semester, the Sigma Sigma sorority underwent a year of growth and change. The Sisterhood Enrichment Chair committee was started by Erika Oglesby with the idea of encouraging fellow women and building on a solid foundation of friendship. The year started with the annual canoe and camping trip and H o m e c o m i n g festivities. The Sigmas enjoyed visiting with alumni at the annual Alumni Brunch and spent some quality time with their brothers, the Fraters, on their "Neverland" inspired float. In November, the women traveled to Grand Traverse Bay Resort for their Formal. The spring semester lived up to its infamous reputation with an Informal celebrated at the Cadillac Sands hotel, the induction of seventeen new members, and an Army themed Date Night. With members involved in the Cheerleading Squad. Dance Marathon committees, intramural sports, the Milestone, Nykerk, Pull, Student Congress, VanderProv, and the W o m e n ' s Issues Organization, H o p e ' s campus is greatly impacted by the influence of H o p e ' s oldest sorority. At Swan Song, they said " g o o d b y e " to fourteen seniors. The history, the wisdom, and most of all the friendship of these women will be cherished and missed dearly. • M e g h a n B e a c h u m •

By definition, to be " C o s m o p o l i t a n " means to be a "citizen of the world," and this year the Cosmopolitan Fraternity took that definition literally. Inspired by a M a y trip to Tanzania, several C o s m o s organized a coalition with Acting on A I D S and Mortar Board to f u n d a free H I V / A I D S testing and counseling clinic for the 1,500-person village of Shikokho, Kenya. Two dozen C o s m o s shaved mustaches to raise HIV awareness, collecting nearly $200. and a hot-dog-eating contest in Phelps raised an additional $300. The combined efforts provided for 18 months of testing and counseling in Shikokho. The focus outside H o p e did little to diminish the fraternity's enthusiasm for Hope College activities. C o s m o s participated in the Pull, Ultimate Frisbee, Mortar Board, Greek Men T a k e a Stand, jazz ensembles, and varsity tennis and soccer. Joey Orr ('07) was second-team All-Conference in soccer, Michael A m e r m a n ( ' 0 8 ) was first-team All-Region, and Dan Tresslar ('08) was second-team Ail-American. A m o n g Greeks, C o s m o s won the Brotherhood-Building Event Award and Service Project of the Year Awards, and for the second year. Christian Piers ( ' 0 7 ) was Greek Man of the Year. For everything C o s m o had to celebrate, there was an underlying absence in the fraternity. On July 20, 2006, senior Paul Baeverstad was lost in a tragic fall, and the C o s m o s lost a brother, friend, and leader. The fraternity came together in the following days, and Scott Neckers (07) said, "Supporting each other through P a u l ' s loss brought us closer—in the way that no one ever wanted." Paul was honored in songs, poetry, dance, and quiet m e m o r y by the people he touched in his three years at Hope College, and his quirky laugh will never leave the attic of the C o s m o House. In the words of the fraternity song: " N o ocean can the bond dissever,/Nor age destroy the sacred tie;/Though we travel far away ./Though our hairs be turning g r e y / W e will give her our love till we die." • Christian Piers •

DCLTR Since 1910, the Delta Phi sorority has been making each year count by participating in fun activities, starting new events, and remembering past traditions. The 2006-2007 year was no exception. First semester the sorority kicked-off a great year by taking part in the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Awareness walk in Grand Rapids. The Delphis brought the motivating nature of the walk to H o p e ' s campus in October by creating the first ever campus-wide "Passionately PINK for the Cure" day to support national breast cancer awareness and raise funds for the cause. The Delta Phis finished a wonderful first semester by participating in Relay for Life, and got pumped up for another inspiring event second semester: Dance Marathon. Supporting their Miracle Child, Duncan, the Delphis danced and lip-synced their way to a successful and fun-filled Dance Marathon 2007. They finished off the year with an adventurous canoe trip, and said farewell to their graduating seniors with both tears and laughter of all the memories they had shared. One Delta Phi, Jenny Birkenholz, described these memories as "little treasures she would not soon forget." • Emily W e g e m e r •

After studying abroad in Scotland during his junior year, Scott Ibbotson returned to Hope w i t h new thoughts and ideas to share w i t h his fraternity brothers.




ncHievi Their patron saint Ralph W a l d o Emerson once said "Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm." The gentlemen of Phi Tau Nu have lived by this creed and created a positive and immensely successful school year. W h e t h e r it is in the classroom, at a c a m p u s event, or during a casual get-together, they support each other to the up most and exemplify the strong bonds of brotherhood. With numbers in the single digits just a few years ago, they have now c o m e full circle with membership topping forty. The Emersonian Fraternity has now established itself as one of the most loved and respected organizations on campus. With fourteen new brothers sworn in during the spring semester, they have grown to be an extremely eclectic and diverse group. They have key contributors in activities like varsity football, baseball, and the Pull. Attendance and participation were equally high in such philanthropic endeavors as Dance Marathon and the semester-end food drive. The seniors, led by Presidents Peter Holden and Scott Ibbotson, brought this group together and created a cohesive unit that , was inseparable by the end of the year. With a handful of active m e m b e r s graduating, the younger guys must step in and take the reigns this u p c o m i n g semester. W e are confident that this passing of the proverbial torch will go smoothly and that


the future of the fraternity has never been brighter or in better hands. • RJ C a s e y •

SiqmR The Sibylline sorority is an organization that has been on H o p e ' s campus since 1919. Eighty-eight years later Sigma Iota Beta has eighty-six members and is the largest sorority at Hope. With members past and present, Sigma Iota Beta celebrates their individual strengths, weaknesses, ideals, and passions by creating a sisterhood bound by devout friendship, love, and loyalty. Sigma Iota Beta serves the community by participating in Relay for Life, Dance Marathon, Mr. Dutch, mission trips, and service projects. A favorite on campus is Mr. Dutch, a male beauty pageant. Gathering ten contestants who all represent Hope in different ways, the men compete for the crown of Mr. Dutch. Each contestant competes in three events: Hope/ Evening Wear, Talent, and Question-and-Answer. The proceeds go towards Dance Marathon in March. This year Sigma Iota Beta raised over $6,000 for Dance Marathon and raised the most compared to any other organization on campus. Megan Sedjo said, "Dance Marathon is one of the greatest experiences and such a wonderful opportunity to help others who are in need." This past April, Sigma Iota Beta participated in the annual powder puff tournament during Greek week. The Sibylline Sorority went on to win the tournament making them the reigning champions. The Emersonian fraternity is the brother to the SIBs and takes pride in their unique relationship. Together the organizations participate in activities and making memories. Overall, the Sibylline sorority offers a vast amount of opportunities for women to participate in events and to grow in friendship with each other. • Julie Cardella •

X p t e t o p The Arcadian Fraternity is the largest it has been in the better half of a decade. Staying strong currently with thirty members, the men of Arcadia have gone through some changes in the organization that have developed them into outstanding gentlemen. T h e Arkies have been serving the c o m m u n i t y with projects helping the less fortunate and helping the environment as well. Also, the men of Arcadia continue to have a strong presence in Dance Marathon, Relay for Life, and other Hope College sponsored events. Another area in which the Arkies are proud of is that the organization just celebrated its 60th anniversary. This event made all the m e m b e r s recognize the dedication that the alumni put into Chi Phi Sigma that allows the existence of the organization to continue at Hope College. The values that they established are still a strong part of what a true Arcadain believes in and that is the importance of Service, Love, and W i s d o m . These things represent the lifestyle of the men of Arcadia as they look to better themselves and those around them. • M a t t h e w C o w i e •

, s h i p iS KRppP D₏LTfi CH I The Kappa Delta Chi sorority is founded on the principles of friendship, service, and the enrichment of the mind and members. The sorority is a unique blend of personalities, and members pride themselves on being involved in a wide variety of activities both on campus and in the community. The 2006-2007 school year was an exciting year for the Kappa Delta Chi sorority. The Kappa Chis had two rush programs, one in the fall of 2006 and one in the spring of 2007. This meant a very busy and exciting year for the sorority. They are thrilled to have all of their new m e m b e r s and have been enjoying the wonderful benefits they bring to the sorority. The Kappa Chis have also participated in many other events. The sorority had many fun and creative sister nights, including a White Elephant party, dodgeball games and they hosted a hibachi dinner. The sorority was honored to win the "Highest Average Sorority C P A " award during Greek Week for the third year in a row, and the Kappa Chis also came in second in the annual H o m e c o m i n g float contest. The Kappa Chis focused on serving their community this year. They participated in Dance Marathon, raised money for the Heifer Project, and supported a Habitat for Humanity family. With all the growth the sorority experienced this year, the members are looking forward to returning for another successful year in the fall. • Devin Boyles •

S€RVI This year, the men of the Alpha Theta Chi fraternity were honored to induct eight new m e m b e r s into their organization. These new m e m b e r s have already begun to e x e m p l i f y the motto in which the m e m b e r s of the Centurian Fraternity hold the utmost importance: Brotherhood. Service, Character. The new m e m b e r s have c o m e f r o m many walks of life. They are hockey players, lacrosse players and are involved in The Pull. Their m a j o r s range f r o m art education, to business, to Japanese. They are truly upstanding young men. The Centurian fraternity has always prided themselves on being involved in charity work. This year the Centurians decided to concentrate on nature and animals as their main points for c o m m u n i t y service. They volunteered at the Critter Barn in Zeeland, helping to restore the a n i m a l ' s cages and get the place ready for winter; as well as at the Ottawa County H u m a n e Society. The Centurians also took part in the annual "Rake and R u n " at Hope College and led a fitness c a m p for the students at the Boys and Girls C l u b in Holland. For their continuous leadership in the c o m m u n i t y , the Centurians were honored at the annual Greek awards as recipients of the Best Service Project Award. The Centurians remained highly involved with their sister sorority the Dorians this year; celebrating h o m e c o m i n g , participating in Relay for Life and even facing off in their annual Battle of the S e x ' s games, in which the Centurians retained the golden plunger (or crown). The Cents sadly had to say goodbye to seven of their m e m b e r s as they were moving on to a different chapter in their lives. While they will be missed, the remaining men of Alpha Theta Chi are happy for those moving on because they k n o w what is in store for them. The Centurain Fraternity is in good hands next year and will continue their quest for excellence and to remain highly involved on the c a m p u s of Hope College. • K e n n e t h U n d e r w o o d •

Kappa Beta Phi had a big year taking in twenty-one new girls this spring-the largest pledge class the sorority has had in many years. The Dorians pride themselves on being a group of unique individuals, each contributing different personalities, interests and thoughts to the sorority. This new group of ambitious, caring and outgoing new girls already exemplifies and enhances all that is Dorian. Dorians are continuing to give back to the community through their philanthropy project raising hundreds of dollars to donate to local Holland high schools to help with extracurricular equipment costs. Kappa Beta Phi and the Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity hosted their annual Jingle Ball Bash again at W a r m Friend, a senior independent living facility in downtown Holland, in which everyone enjoys Christmas carols, cookies, dancing, games, and good conversation. Raising money and participating in Dance Marathon and Relay for Life has been another long-standing Dorian and Greek Life tradition. Dorians also helped welcome the Knickerbocker Fraternity back into the Greek community with their first annual Dorian/ Knick Bake Off. The Centurians faced off against their sisters in the bi-annual Battle of the Sexes competition in tests of aca-, demies, athleticism and pop culture. The girls also enjoyed bowling and playing ultimate Frisbee with the Emersonian Fraternity and participating in intramural sports and the annual Powerpuff football tournament. Kappa Beta Phi president. Shannon Harburn was voted Greek W o m a n of the Year for being a role model in the Greek community by living out the Dorian motto of simplicity of manner, strength of purpose, and beauty of character. Though sixteen amazing seniors will graduate in 2007, the Dorian tradition will be left in good hands and holds incredible potential for the future. • Heidi W e i r •

The Knickerbocker Fraternity is dedicated to the development of the social maturity, intellectual excellence, and moral conviction of its m e m b e r s . S y n o n y m o u s with loyalty, Knickerbocker is represented by a small group of men who come together to enjoy f u n and fellowship with a sense of brotherhood that cannot be established in larger fraternities. The Knicks were reinstated this year f o l l o w i n g a five year break after a successful fall rush program was initiated by a group of devoted alumni f r o m the classes of 1951 through 2 0 0 4 lead by Scott Mancinelli ('90) and John Foster ('74). The new m e m bers took the c a m p u s by storm, winning four awards for their accomplishments including highest combined G P A , best risk management event for their bakeoff with the Dorian sorority, best Greek Life Enrichment, and first place in Greek Week attendance. The Knicks bonded in brotherhood through social activities such as the spring canoe trip, as well as service activities, including the can drive for the Muscular Dystrophy Association and volunteering at the DeGraaf Nature Center. The Knicks hope to capitalize on the m o m e n t u m gained through the past year by reestablishing their presence on c a m p u s and adding m e m b e r s interested in carrying on the traditions of the fraternity. • Jacob W i n g a t e •

SOR The women of the Alpha G a m m a Phi Sorority celebrated their 50th Anniversary this year! The year began with raising money for and walking in the Detroit AIDS Walk. The women then started a new bonding experience - having an informal potluck dinner the first Sunday of each month. At Homecoming, the active women of Alpha Phi were joined by alumni on their "Return to Neverland." The Alpha Phis then welcomed their former brothers, the Knickerbockers, back to campus and spent a lot of time getting to know these wonderful men. After a very successful rush, themed "50 Years of Rockin'", the Alpha Phis welcomed five amazing new women to the wonderful experience of the sisterhood's friendship and love. Spring Formal was spent in a cabin on Lake Charlevoix; it was a relaxing and fun event for the sisters and their dates. Finally, three women - Darcy Cunningham. Megan Dougherty, and Stephanie Harrier - sang the Alpha Phi Friendship Song one last time before graduating after an amazing Senior Toast was given by next year's Vice President, Monica Calhoon. Through it all, the Alpha Phis stood by their motto - "Friendship, our anchorage." • Stephanie Harrier •

This year was a very successful year for the Tau Septaton chapter of Phi S i g m a Kappa at Hope College. The chapter worked hard to embrace its cardinal principles of brotherhood, scholarship and character all year long. Over the course of the year the Phi Sigs participated in n u m e r o u s activities. In October, the chapter was a m o n g the fundraising leaders in Relay for Life and a Phi Sig won the Mr. Relay competition for the third time in the past f o u r years. The Phi Sigs also participated in Dance Marathon, ushered at the Christmas Vespers services, co-sponsored a Christmas dance at Resthaven Care C o m m u nity retirement home, volunteered at Holland-o-Ween (a trick-or-treating and pumpkin carving safety event and Halloween party for local kids sponsored by the Holland Park District), walked in the Jingle Bell walk (a walk to raise awareness for mental illness), volunteered at the C o m m u n i t y Kitchen soup kitchen held at Western Theological Seminary and volunteered at the Glitz Hair Salon Cut-a-thon to raise money for Michigan Children's L e u k e m i a Foundation. In January, six brothers represented the chapter at a regional conclave in Milwaukee, WI attended by representatives f r o m Phi Sig chapters at other colleges in Michigan and other surrounding states. During Greek Week, the Phi Sigs sponsored, organized, coached and refereed the 4th annual Greek Powder Puff Football tournament. In August, five brothers will represent the chapter at the Phi Sigma Kappa National Convention held in Nashville, TN. The Phi Sigs also achieved the goal of raising their average GPA to above the Greek m e n ' s average at Hope in 2007. After w e l c o m i n g the very talented and promising Delta class to the chapter in the spring, the chapter looks forward to promising 2007-2008 school year. • Thad Goodchild •

__ |TRUp^slhBEiKB_ D C I T R B i q m f i Thero On January 13, 1913, twenty-two African American collegiate women at Howard University founded the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority. These women pursued the foundation of this sorority because they wanted to promote academic excellence and provide assistance to persons in need. Delta Sigma Theta is an illustrious sorority that is dedicated to public service. In March of 1913, the Delta Founders performed Delta's first act with their participation in the W o m e n ' s Suffrage March in Washington D.C. The Delta Sigma Theta Sorority has over 200,000 members with chapters all over the world. The Tau Psi Chapter at Hope College was initiated as the 975th chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated on April 24, 2005. This past fall, Hope's Tau Psi chapter participated and raised money in the Walk for HIV/AIDS in Grand Rapids. In February, we completed our first Delta Week which included a graduate school discussion featuring Hope faculty of color, an STD awareness day, a finance panel featuring representatives from Holland area banks, and a fun and educational ladies night where stress management and self defense techniques were taught. Also in February, Tau Psi created a Black History Month quiz that was featured on Hope's website. On December 3, 2006 the Tau Psi chapter of DST initiated three new members into the sorority. The members were known as A.L.P.H.A Trinity. The newest members are Tonisha Gordon, Lyndsey Brewster, and Leticia Parker. A.L.P.H.A Trinity was the first official group to cross under the Tau Psi Chapter.* Tonisha Gordon •

ir\n • ii After this year's last set of exams had been graded and theCinal applause had faded from the graduation stage, as students carried the last of the boxes out to their cars, the year had already begun its own recollection. The ultimate goal in creating a college yearbook is to provide a tangible document depicting an entire year in the life of a school. This year, however, our goals were set higher. Not only did we seek to recall the year's epic moments. We also wanted to remember what happened on Hope's campus before this year's students ever considered spending the pivotal years of their lives here. Though these eight months may have been monumental in our own lives, this yearly rotation of Orientation and Homecoming, Fantasia and Spring Fling has happened many times before, and will continue its sequence long after we are gone.





Next fall will solidify the reality of taking the first steps beyond Hope for the seniors of 2007. However, the conclusion of another summer will also bring new beginnings for the Hope students who will be returning to campus or spending a semester abroad. As this book draws to a close, plans are well underway to welcome an entirely new generation of Dutch to campus w i t h the incoming freshmen class of 2011. Marcus Aurelius once said, "The present joys of life we doubly taste by looking back w i t h pleasure on the past." This book seeks to provide a lasting recollection that we will be glad to dwell in more than f i f t y years from now, or want to relive as little as six months after graduation.

First year co-editors, Meghan Beachum and Megan Purtee, would like t o thank our hardworking student staff, our supportive advisor, Emily Hall; our always-helpful sales rep, A n t h o n y Perez; and our customer service rep Jill Fowler. This book would not have been possible w i t h o u t all the hard w o r k put in by the awesome staff of the Student Development Office at Hope College. W e would also like t o thank Wilma Hart for all of her knowledge and experience, and for helping us pass it down f r o m editor t o editor. We hope you have enjoyed the 2007 Milestone. Our feelings regarding the completion of this book can be best expressed t h r o u g h recalling the closing words w r i t t e n by Karry Ritter C79) the editor of the 1977 book: " N o one but a yearbook editor can fully appreciate the w o r k and w o r r y t h a t go into the making of a yearbook. Likewise, no one but a yearbook editor can fully appreciate the support and assistance given by students, faculty and friends... " W o r k i n g for the Milestone is hardly a glamorous or financially rewarding job. Staff members sacrificed many hours of their o w n time so that this book could be produced. They deserve your thanks, as well as. mine." For more information about the Milestone, please visit our web-site;
