Hope Then


n Hope's first full year, there were sixty-four students and six faculty members, including the presid e n t . Five of t h e f a c u l t y members were ministers, and each t a u g h t a broad range of courses; for example, Prof. Crispell t a u g h t math, philosophy, astronomy, and theology. to its right, and Van Raalte is behind t h e chapel, -from J o i n t Archives.

Hope Today t is with confidence that one can say Hope belongs to an elite group of outstanding schools. Through the years the faculty and s t u d e n t s have worked hard to give Hope national recognition, and this work is paying off. Whether it's Jennifer Haskin being selected as an academic AilAmerican by USA Today, Dr. Roger Nemeth b e i n g c h o s e n as o u t standing sociology prof e s s o r in t h e s t a t e of Michigan, or the women's basketball team being national champions, Hope has made its mark.


However, those who read of these accomplishments can hardly understand the true Hope College, for it is more than just awards and recognition. Hope is a group of friendly, caring, and personable students, people who go out of their way to be helpful. Hope is dedicated and outstanding professors whose interests lie in the strengthening of t h e i r s t u d e n t s ' minds. Hope is staff and administrators who want to make students the best people possible. This is w h a t m a k e s H o p e so great. The Pine Grove in fall shows many beautiful colors.

t Hope, there are a wide variety of activities from which to choose. Students certainly can't complain about the lack of things to do on campus. Indeed, there are enough activities and programs to suit even the most finicky student. From the romance of Fantasia to the excitement of of Critical Pull to the education Issues, students can always be satisfied.

he normally tranquil city of Holland was once again besieged in late August, as Hope students arrived on campus anxiously awaiting the beginning of Hope's 128th academic year. Although many students were not ready to hit the books, the mood at Hope was very upbeat and happy. Friends embraced each other and related their summer happenings to each other after almost four months absence. At the fall convocation, President John Jacobson said that Hope "is a place where scholarship and teaching flourish. It is devoted to the life of the mind."

Jacobson's words were evidenced at the opening lecture of the Presidential Lecture Series, which was established in 1989 to bring distinguished speakers to Hope's campus. Called "one of the most respected scholars in 19th century French literature," Dr. Victor Brombert from Princeton spoke on the French revolution. The Modern Jazz Quartet kicked off the Great Performance Series in perhaps the highlight of the season. Having recorded 42 albums in 37 years, the men have been called "the finest of all jazz groups."

Homecoming 1989 *4

omecoming 1989 was firmly "Anchored in Tradition" as the theme stated. Homecoming is a very special time for students and alumni alike, a time to see old friends, renew friendships, or just enjoy the wide array of activities t h a t are available. The weekend was very busy, and the gloomy weather could not supress the festive atmosphere. The classes of '79 and '84 held their reunions. On Saturday morning, dedicated athletes competed in t h e a n n u a l R u n - B i k e Swim. Also, an alumni art show f e a t u r e d t h e art of Hope graduates. P r i o r to t h e f o o t b a l l game, the parade wound its way down to the stadium with many colorful floats. And the Hope College Flying D u t c h m e n f o o t b a l l team maintained the atmosphere by defeating Adrian College.

At halftime, Craig Kozler and Melissa TenHave were crowned King and Queen. To wrap up the day, students packed the Kletz for a Homecoming dance, featuring music by the Wild Woodys. At the Run-Bike-Swim, Kristen Gray and Louise Shumaker attract the attention of a reporter.

ctober was a very busy month. Hundreds of Hope students made their annual room-cleaning in October for Parents Weekend. One of the highlights of SAC's fall schedule, the Maasquerade dance, drew a huge crowd of masked s t u d e n t s for a n i g h t of dancing. The award for best costume went to a group of eight girls who dressed as "Larry and the seven Darryls," in a takeoff of " T h e B o b N e w h a r t Show."

The Hope College Theatre presented on Brecht on Brecht, a play written by George Tabori and directed by David Colacci about the poems, plays, a n d s o n g s of B e r t o l t Brecht. The cast included sophomores Eric Muiderman, Jennifer Martin, Amy Gaipa, and Scott Mellema, juniors Maria Vaver and Chris Beasley, and seniors Chip Duford and Sara Jo Wiper. Although they could hardly be called dwarfish, three of the seven dwarfs make an appearance at the Maasquerade.

The freshman singers may have been nervous before their performance, but their rendition of "Mr. Sandman" was great.

o u r s a n d h o u r s of endless work finally paid off for the class of 1992 as they won the 54th annual Nykerk Cup competition on October 28 at the Holland Civic Center. Both the freshmen and sophomores put on an excellent show, made all the better by weeks of non-stop practice. D i r e c t e d by Rebecca Weigle, the f r e s h m a n chorus sang "Mr. Sandman". The sophomore song was "We Go Together", which was d i r e c t e d by Marnie Dolphin. The freshman play was "Hood of Sherwood", which was directed by Jennifer Joyce and Anne Schloff.


The sophomore play was "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves of the Black Forest", edited by Verna Bond-Broderick and Ellen Tanis. The oration theme was "At t h e R o u n d E a r t h ' s Imagined Corners", from a poem by John Donne. Alison Schaap represented the class of '93, while Sabina De Witt gave the '92 oration. All of the women involved had a wonderful time, made possible by the undying devotion of the coaches, class representatives, and general chairperson Debra Vliem. And who could forget the morale guys, who supported and cheered the competitors in the best and worst of times.

The sophomore singers put a great deal of emotion and power into their song "We Go Together."

November N

ovember was a month of singers and speakers at Hope. Students rocked to the sounds of the Altar Boys at the Knickerbocker. And Livingston Taylor, brother of James, brought his folk-rock to the Knickerbocker with comedian Alex Cole. On a less professional note, the SIB's emerged victorious at the All-College Sing, held in Phelps dining hall. Poetically speaking, award-winning author Jane Hamilton read from her new book. And authors Jack Driscoll and Michael Delp, who have won six PEN awards between them, also visited Hope and spoke to many enthusiastic students.

One of the most eminent historians on Africa, Dr. Roland A. Oliver, professor emeritus at the University of London, spoke on "Rethinking African History" as part of the Presidential Lecture Series. And to increase alcohol education. Alcohol Awareness Week dealt with many alcoholrelated issues facing Hope students today. Finally, the Rire-Woodbury Dance Company performed for three nights in DeWitt theatre as part of the Great Performance Series. The company, known for its energetic work, has toured extensively internationally, and has performed in all 50 states.

ith Christmas break only a few days away, students began December with visions of sugarplums dancing in their heads. Unfortunately, these visions were clouded by a semester's worth of notes in preparation for exams. However, some diversions made for excellent e n t e r t a i n ment. From December 1-3 in Dimnent Chapel, the Hope College music department presented Christmas Vespers. The c h a p e l is a d o r n e d in b r e a t h t a k i n g decor as nearly five hundred people are involved in the event each year. Besides Chaplain Van Heest and Assistant Chaplain Van Arendonk, the Chapel Choir, College Chorus, Woodwind Quintet, Brass Ensemble, and Symphonette all took Joann Schma, Michelle Hoppe, and Maria Vaver converse in the part in the service. Vespers

began in 1941, serving originally as a memorial service to those killed in the bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. On December 6 the renowned Children's Theatre Company presented their national touring production of Raggedy Ann and Andy in DeWitt Theatre. Hope College Theatre put on Waiting for the Parade, written by John Murrell and directed by faculty member John Tammi. The play was chosen to mark the 50th anniversary of World War II, and had only five cast members: sophomores Jennifer Martin and Joann Schma, junior Maria Vaver, and seniors Michelle Hoppe and Sara Jo Wiper.

Also, as part of the Presidential Lecture Series, leading cognitive n e u r o s c i e n t i s t Malcolm Jeeves spoke at Hope, giving a talk entitled "Brain, Mind, and Faith." In late January, Hope sponsored the annual Siblings Weekend. Scores of youngsters arrived on campus. The Social Activities Committee provided a variety of activities, such as a tshirt painting festival. And Batman was s h o w n at Graves to coincide with his visit to campus.

A snowy walk through campus is almost a sure thing during winters at Hope.


February F

ebruary kicked off with the annual Winter Fantasia at the Amway Grand P l a z a in G r a n d R a p i d s . Couples turned out looking their finest for a night of dancing and romancing. Music was p r o v i d e d by t h e group Innovation, who were received with much enthusiasm by the couples. February was also Black History Month. Many events drew attention to the achievements of black Americans. There was a tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr., a gospel concert, a vigil for racial harmony in the Pine Grove, and a forum on race relations. W o m e n ' s W e e k was F e b r u a r y 2-9, and H o p e

brought many people to campus to focus attention on the roles of women in society. For example. Lifeline, a female rock band, traveled from Washington, D. C. to perform in the Maas. A r e p r e s e n t a t i v e from the National Organization of Women spoke, and there were also female a u t h o r s who r e a d f r o m their works. As part of the Presid e n t i a l L e c t u r e Series, former West German Parliament member Dr. Wilhelm A. Kewenig spoke on a topic of primary international interest; his talk was entitled "The Changing Face of Eastern Europe".

Pledging began in February, and freshmen Kristen Montpetit and Kierin Givens spent three weeks as Delta Phi pledges. Jeff Linger shows Esther Maksymovitch his plucked eyebrows.

A leader in the fight to end a p a r t h e i d , B o e s a k was awarded an honorary degree at the Critical Issues Symposium "The Quest for Justice: C h r i s t i a n Voices," which was held February 28 and March 1. Boesak, president of the World Alliance of Reformed Churches, gave his address to a capacity crowd at Dimnent Chapel. "I am absolutely convinced that the new day is coming," Boesak said o f t h e events in South Africa, "There is no way in which Mr. de Klerk (president of S o u t h A f r i c a ) , even if he wanted to, can turn back now." T h e symposium dealt with the question of justice from a variety of

Christian perspectives, With the events in South Africa and Eastern Europe heading the news, the topic of liberation throughout the world was especially appropriate. Various addresses, luncheons, and debates helped to make this Critical Issues Symposium the most exciting and popular ever. Also in March, Hope College Theatre put on a s t e l l a r p e r f o r m a n c e of Chekov's The Seagull in De Witt Theatre. The cast members and supporting crew p u t in m a n y long hours to make the production an outstanding one. Finally, Hope College sponsored its 18th annual Model United Nations Conference on March 8-9. Over 850 students from 30 high schools participated in this event.

May Day celebrations have always been a popular event with elegant decor, -from Joint Archives of Holland, Hope College Collection.


pril is a time of festivities and celebration at Hope College. AsT the weather begins to warm, students head outside to catch the first rays of springtime; the temperature is inversely proportional to the amount of time the student studies. However, with the end of school only a short while away, students must begin to think about final exams. Dance XVI ran from April 5-7 in DeWitt Theatre in front of large audiences. Presented by the faculty and students of the dance department, the concert featured presentations of ballet, jazz, tap, and modern dance. T h e four Hope professors a n d over t h i r t y s t u d e n t s were joined by guest artists from New York City.

Also in April, students braved the cold to get good seats for some of the best entertainment Hope has to offer at the Air Jam. Emcee Tony Powell kept the audience laughing between acts, although some of the p e r f o r m a n c e s were very funny themselves. The Praters captured first place at this year's AirJam. May Day was a perfect e n d i n g to t h e a c a d e m i c year. The warm weather was ideal for the picnic in t h e P i n e G r o v e as t h e cheery atmosphere danced throughout the campus. For the first time, Hope used Holland Stadium to hold a nighttime May Day concert, as The Vince Andrews Band rocked the night away.

or four years, Holland is home to Hope students. Although upon arriving many students have never before been to Holland, they quickly find the small city to be warm, friendly, and accommodating. This w a r m t h a c t u a l l y goes back a long way. So, what is this city in which we s p e n d w h a t m a n y call " t h e b e s t y e a r s of our life"?


On November 17, 1846, Albertus Van Raalte landed in New York with a group of other Dutch. Van Raalte left the group and moved west, hoping to find the prosperity and riches that America offered. He settled in present-day Holland, although the area was mostly wilderness with only three white settlers. Holland became a city in 1868. In 1870, the city had only 2319 people. In 1871

a fire destroyed most of the town. By the 1880's Holland was overtaken by factories and businesses, and its quaint atmosphere was changed forever. Two fact o r s a c c o u n t e d for t h i s change: the railroad, and the beginning of Holland Furnace, located at 22nd and College Ave. Since 1900, Holland has been expanding. The Tulip Festival began in 1929, giving Holland some recogni-

tion. During World War II, m a n y H i s p a n i c s came to Holland from Texas to help with the harvesting of crops and fruits. With the addition of such s t r u c t u r e s as t h e m a l l , movie t h e a t r e , a n d m a r k e t p l a c e , t h e c i t y is growing rapidly. Yet Holland will always retain that friendly small-town atmosphere.

From the top of Dimnent Chapel, the rapidly changing faces of Holland and Hope College are easy to see.

ENIORS fter four — or more — years of hard work mixed with an occasional break for fun, Hope's class of 1990 finally left the comfortable confines of Hope College on May 6. Armed with a degree, graduates were prepared to enter the work force, relax for a while, or endure still more schooling. Regardless of their plans, the class of 1990 certainly has many fond memories of t h e i r years at Hope.

Has there been any athletic team that Craig Kozler, better known as "Koz" has not been involved with? Originally f r o m Northville, Michigan, Craig has always been considered an athlete. Here at Hope he has participated in the Pull and was captain of the lacrosse and cheerl e a d i n g t e a m s . H e also played varsity football, was a member of the Student

Congress, p r e s i d e n t of t h e U n i o n of C a t h o l i c Students, and was a Resident Director and Assistant. Craig intends to pursue studies in child psychology and would like to receive a masters degree in counseling and a Ph. D in elementary level counseling. Craig feels that Hope has definitely helped him to mature his leadership abilities.

O n e of my most memorable experiences was sharing and growing . . . my junior year; when it comes right down to it, making Iriends is what Hope is about!"

Glen Oosterhoff has indeed accomplished the impossible in being accepted into many academic scholastic programs.

O n e is t h e M o r t a r Board which is a national honor society; students are chosen on the basis of scholarship, leadership, and service. As a sophomore, Glen was named a Baker Scholar. With the Mortar Board, Glen has traveled to Philadelphia and San Francisco, visiting various banks and businesses. This has enabled him to experience firsthand the business world. Glen was also involved in Student Congress and was on the residence hall staff. Glen plans to work at

a Chicago accounting f i r m . He really a p p r e ciates all the help he has r e c e i v e d h e r e , saying, "Yeah, Hope's prepared me o. k. !"

"Before I came to Hope I knew all those political issues were out there, but I never really stopped to think about them like I am motivated to do here at Hope."

According to Christine Modey," Hope is definitely a safe place to be radical." This is good for Christine, as she has been involved in a diversity of groups and organizations. C h r i s t i n e has shown amazing strength in music. Her main talent lies in her ability to play the french horn. She has been an avid member of the orchestra, symphonic orchestra,

wind e n s e m b l e , b r a s s quintet, and the woodwind quintet. She performed in the Hope College Concerto Competition as one of only two instrumentalists chosen from Hope. T h e r e is much more to Chris than just musical talent. She was a member of Mortar Board and the Women's Issues Organization, editor of Opus, and is on the residence life staff. Christine feels that Hope has influenced her in exploring and amplifying her political views.

T h e Christian tradition is what drew Ken Olivier to Hope College. Ken is a psychology and business major who feels a calling to be of service to the community. Ken has already begun serving the community by b e i n g a big b r o t h e r through the Higher Hori z o n s p r o g r a m h e r e at Hope. He also was a counselor at Cranhill Ranch.

Ken loved b e i n g a cheerleader for Hope's sports teams, and he became very close to many members of the teams. Ken traveled to the U. S. S. R. with the Chapel Choir during his junior year, which he found to be a wonderful experience.

" The friends 1 made through the Centurian fraternity and the Pull have been the best. 1 don't want to leave them, but 1 will never forget them."

While many seniors are u n s u r e of t h e i r f u t u r e s , Michael Cheek has definite plans. He was recently commissioned by the Air Force as a Second Lieutenant. He plans to attend medical school after graduation, and to fulfill his c o m m i t m e n t to t h e Air Force after that. While at Hope, Michael has participated in a wide variety of organizations.

including the pre-medical society, the Pull, Mortar Board, and track. Michael served as the president of the Centurian fraternity, and considers it to be a big part of his life. "Through all these things, I have been a b l e to c h o o s e w h a t ' s best for me. Hope is very open and friendly, which makes it easier to find friends who like you for who you are."

After attending schools in Texas, Minnesota, and Missouri, his native state, Andy finally transferred to Hope College three years

ago. He is now a political science major who has been an active part of Hope College during his years here. In 1989, Andy was one of sixty-six students who participated in the Vie n n a May T e r m p r o gram through Hope. He encourages students to t a k e a d v a n t a g e of this unique opportunity. " T h e smartest thing I ever did at Hope was go to Vienna. I had never spoken German before in my life, yet I was able to learn the language and enjoy it." Andy has also

( been an active member of both Student Congress and the Student Activities Committee while at Hope, as well as participating in many other activities.

well as serving as the Special Events Chairman for SAC. As a male citizen of the Philippines, Kevin's postgraduate plans have been made for him. He is required to return home and serve in the army for two and a half years. Kevin has accepted this, although it is not his choice to do so. Following this, he would like to make use of his Business Administration and Economics majors by working as an investment banker.

After hours of research, she decided with the support of faculty and alumni to reactivate the Dorian society. This became official in 1988 and it is still growing rapidly. H e i d i has b e e n involved in many activities while at Hope, including Wind Ensemble, Union of C a t h o l i c S t u d e n t s ,

"Friendships are one of the most precious gifts of life."

May Day Court, Pull, and Nykerk, in which she was Senior Class Representative. Heidi has also given a tremendous amount back to Hope College in her work with the Admissions O f f i c e and alumni. No doubt she will be as active as ever in 2040 promoting her 50th class reunion!

"Being involved in basketball and Chapel Choir has given me the whole Hope experience."

During Bruce VanderKolk's years at Hope, varsity basketball and Chapel Choir have occupied the majority of his time. Bruce has been on the basketball team for four years. During his sophomore year, he travelled to southern Mexico with the team. He remembers this as being a time when he was able to learn a lot and g r o w f r o m his e x p e r i -

ences. "Playing basketball at Hope has given me the opportunity to meet many new people. T h e team is very important to me." For three years, Bruce was also an active member of the Chapel Choir, serving as President this past fall. Last May, he went to the Soviet Union on tour with this group. He says that it was an experience then neither he nor the other singers will ever forget. After graduation, Bruce hopes to teach at a secondary school.

B r y a n W h i t m o r e was v e r y i n v o l v e d with t h e track team during his four years at Hope. He was a middle distance runner for

the track team, and he has been captain of the cross country team for the past two years. Twice, he ran in the National C h a m p i o n s h i p s , a n d o n c e h e c a m e in 26th, just one place short of q u a l i f y i n g f o r AllAmerican status. Bryan pledged the Arc a d i a n f r a t e r n i t y as a freshman, and later went on to become its twoyear president. He felt that being in the fraternity was just like being part of a large family. "It isn't at all exclusive . . . it enabled me to meet all

kinds of p e o p le . " Bryan was also a member of the Business Round Table and FCA. D u r i n g his y e a r s at Hope, Bryan felt that his involvement in activities, his family, and his Christian faith were most responsible for his happiness here.

Music is and always will be an important part of Nancy Neuman's life. At Hope, Nancy has put her musical talents to good use t h r o u g h participation in the Chapel Choir, Wind E n s e m b l e , and N y k e r k . "Being in Nykerk was definitely my most memorable experience. I made many friends whom I will never forget." Nancy is a currently a m e m b e r of Pi K a p p a Lambda, the National Music Honor Society, and was P r e s i d e n t of Delta O m icron, Hope's music fraternity.

Nancy feels that the religious a t m o s p h e r e at H o p e has s h a p e d h e r e n o r m o u s l y . "I h a v e gained general respect f o r r e l i g i o u s choices." She also believes that the religious input from professors is helpful. "Classes are very open, which allows us to see many different viewpoints." N a n c y says t h a t she owes a lot to the music d e p a r t m e n t h e r e at Hope. "They have given me the opportunity to grow musically, spiritually, and educationally. " Nancy plans to gradu-

ate with a major in Vocal Music Education, and she hopes to teach in the publie school system.

"As treasurer of the Chapel Choir, planning for our Soviet Union ti ip was a lot of hard work. It was a wonderful feeling to know that our hard work paid off in the end. It was a wonderful experience."

Sue Baker felt right at home here at Hope from the very start. She became involved with the Pull in her freshman and sopho-

more years, going on to become a representative for the class of 1992 team in her junior and senior years. Last spring, Sue was accepted into a foreign s t u d y p r o g r a m in Bogota, C o l o m b i a . She found it a challenge to constantly speak. Spanish, but she says that her skills i m p r o v e d m a r k edly. Her favorite part was having free time to travel and explore. Sue was also an active part of the cheerleading squads, She "enjoyed it a lot," and cheering was a big

part of her college life. Academics are important to Sue, and her studies helped her to keep t h i n g s in p e r s p e c t i v e w i t h o u t m a k i n g sacrifices. Sue is a major in Business Administration, and plans to work after graduation.

"Having the chance to interact with such a diverse group of people has helped to make me the person 1 am today."

Even though Hope is in Ellen T a n i s ' h o m e t o w n , she has always f e l t t h a t Hope was a whole different world. Perhaps, though, this made the idea of off-campus study even more appealing to her. During her sophomore year, Ellen participated in the Washington D. C. program, and in her junior year, she studied in London. Ellen, a sociology and

She found it to be a unique e x p e r i e n c e b e c a u s e it m a d e h e r l o o k at l i f e from a different perspective t h a n she usually does. Ellen has been very active in a wide variety of activities, including Residence Life, theatrics, Greek life, and Honor Societies. Ellen has her teaching certificate, and she hopes to teach high school sociology or psychology.

faith with other people. "Hope has allowed me to e x p e r i e n c e , learn, and talk to other people. It has deepened my faith." Melissa has been active in the Greek life at Hope; she has been a SIB for three years, and is now president of the Pan Hellenic Board. Melissa was also an important part of the annual Pull, first as a Morale Girl and later as Morale Coach. Melissa's fondest memories of Hope will be in her time spent as a member of the Chapel Choir. She enjoyed be-

ing able to travel to the east coast and to the Soviet Union with them. Melissa is majoring in English but is unsure of her career plans, although she may want to work in human resources or with a non-profit organization.

Sunday May 6 was indeed a windy day. How a p p r o p r i a t e t h e n , t h a t Boyd Wilson's commencement address was entitled "Who am I to Blow Against the Wind?" Wilson told the seniors in his address that each one of them can in fact make a difference in the world, and that they even carry an obligation to make the world a better place, since it is now theirs to have. Wilson's words were well received by the audience.



The festive mood was maintained throughout the day, as the graduates embraced each other and spoke of past times and of the exciting future. The class of 1990 has made an indelible mark on Hope College.

What are some of the advantages/ disadvantages of Hope's parietal policy? ,j|W/ " I t ' s t o t a l l y cool t o know I can walk out in the cluster with only a towel on and know that there's not going to be a guy out there. But parietals are also stupid because I study really late at night and there is no place in Dykstra to study with a guy after midnight." Sarah Evans

"It's a pain to have to constantly watch the clock, especially in the last fifteen minutes because it seems like a c o u n t d o w n . I suppose it would be nice if my neighbors had parietals (and I didn't) because after all it would be a lot less noisy then." David Hart

"While in Spain I attended the Institute of European Studies' program in Madrid. We met in a small building on the huge campus of the Universidad Complutense in Madrid. The transitions were difficult. To hold conversations in another language is hard. It was also hard adjusting to the different hours of eating. We had breakfast at 8 a. m., the main meal was served around 3 p. m. and a light snack was eaten at 9 a. m. The discos opened at midnight and closed at 5 a. m. There was often free time and I loved the chance to travel. On a four day weekend we could go to the south of Spain and back. I also visited Portugal, Morocco, and France. While overseas, the thing I had trouble with the most was the stereotyping of Americans; however, wherever we went people were always more than willing to help us."

T h e 1989-90 school year marks Jacob E. Nyenhuis' sixth year as provost at Hope College and his fifteenth year as part of its faculty. Previously, he had been a professor of classics and Dean of Arts and Humanities on Hope's campus. As provost, he is responsible for the entire academic program. He also is accountable for the instruction and development of the faculty. Dr. Nyenhuis stresses strong and solid academics, evident in Hope's outstanding program. T h e provost is the second highest office in rank, the president being first. T h e office of provost was instituted in 1974. Dr. Nyenhuis has been very influential and effective in the development of the duties of the provost.

The eight visitation days throughout the school year are also the responsibility of the admissions o f f i c e .

Hope has a strong religious background as well as a thriving spiritual aspect today. Chaplain Gerard Van Heest and Assistant Chaplain Van Arendonk strive to help students grow in their faith, and to meet any religious needs. Together they conduct chapel services three times a week.

Many students d e p e n d on off-campus jobs for income. Joyce Twining helps students secure the employment they need. She keeps close contact with Holland employers for openings available. T h e bulletin board across f r o m the Off-Campus Jobs office in DeWitt is where the j o b openings are posted. Also, Pat DeWitt is in charge of the transportation for students who do not have their own to reach these offcampus jobs. She is in charge of locating drivers and making sure vehicles are available. Pat is always ready with a smile when students come to make use of the transportation services that Hope offers.

Though students may occasionally complain about receiving parking tickets from Public Safety, without the help and dedication of its officers many people would not feel safe on campus. The department employs as many as fifty students t h r o u g h the i n f o r m a t i o n center as secretaries and student officers. Seven full-time police officers work with the force as well. T h e s e certified officers handle the formal complaints, while the student officers deal mainly with security and safety needs.

tudents at Hope are lucky to be blessed with an exceptional faculty. Professors at Hope all share two common features; a love for teaching and a desire to share their knowledge with students. This is exhibited in their genuine desire to get to know students. Whether it is a perpetually open office door, a weekend cook out at their home, or a lunch in the K1 e t z , Hope's professors always have the students' best interests in mind.

Hope's art department is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art, reflecting the excellence of the program. The art department not only offers a wide variety of courses for students to fulfill their core requirements, but also a strong foundation for majors. Many exhibitions, shows and speakers are sponsored by the department to enhance the student's learning experience in the discipline. Among the highlights from the 1989-90 year were one hundred master prints from the Albion Collection, an exhibition and reception in the honor of the artist Lynn Gray, and the "Acceptable Entertainment" exhibition which dealt with the relation of photography to television. In December, students were given the opportunity to display their own work in a juried student show. Also, an alumni exhibit was held in October and November.


What Hope was like in 1963-64: ( Del Michel's first year at Hope) Calvin VanderWerf was inaugurated as president of Hope College. The campus mourned the death of John F. Kennedy. Students were required to "dress up" for Friday night and Sunday noon meals in the cafeteria.

gy department in particular has grown to have an excellent reputation, preparing its students to enter various areas in the field. The department is proud of its record of majors that have gone on the top graduate, medical, and dental schools. The department offers both a bachelor of arts degree and a bachelor of science degree, as well as a minor and a variety of courses for the students. The students interested in a career in biology may enhance their learning by working as laboratory assistants, participating in internships, and doing research with faculty. Also, several off-campus programs are offered during May term and summer term to add a new dimension. Though science is "ever-changing", Hope's biology department will undoubtedly keep up with the pace and always offer its students a challenging and quality education.

As stated in the 1983 Milestone, goal of Hope's chemistry department has always been and continues to be a striving towards excellence in undergraduate education." It is unlikely that anyone would dispute the outstanding quality of the chemistry department, as it has indeed continued to strive toward excellence. Many students participate in research with the professors, giving the students a unique and valuable experience as undergraduates. The department works hard to keep up with the new and ever-changing developments in the world of chemistry. During the 1989-90 academic year. Dr. Rodney F. Boyer received a two-year grant from the Petroleum Research Fund for research in iron metabolism. Also, the chemistry department received funding through the University Grants Program of the Hewlett-Packard Company for a new computer system for the mass spectrometer.

The communication department has undergone many changes throughout the years. Initially, it was integrated with the English department, but was later separated into the speech department. The department did not actually become the communication department until the early 1970's. The department's purpose is to improve students' skill in the communication field, which contains many specific and diverse arenas such as interpersonal communication and persuasive presentations. The courses offered by the department are as varied as the field itself. The members of the faculty each are specialized in a different area. An active forensics team is closely tied to the communication department and is headed by Dr. Alspach. Hope also has a television studio from which classes produce news shows for a local cable station. Joseph W. MacDoniels Culver-Stockton College Class of 1963 What Hope was like in 1971-72: (J.

One of the newest departments on campus is the computer science department. As society becomes increasingly more computerized, it is highly beneficial to an individual to be knowledgeable on the subject. T h e c o m p u t e r science d e p a r t m e n t gives a unique experience to its students by offering p a r t - t i m e employment, internships, independent studies and independent research with faculty. This year the department received a grant from the National Science Foundation to install a new computer graphics laboratory. The resources are available to upper level students. "We wanted to give our students experience in some of the best graphics computing available," said Gordon Stegink. Such advancements are evidence of the computer science department's efforts to keep up with the new technology in order to give Hope College students the best education possible in this area.

The fine arts are an important component of Hope's curriculum. In light of this, an outstanding dance department has been developed over the years to add another dimension to a liberal arts education at Hope. The outstanding nature of the dance department is reflected in the fact that Hope is one of the few small liberal arts colleges in the United States to be accredited by the National Association of Schools of Dance. Hope offers a variety of dance courses in ballet, jazz, modern dance, and tap. The department hopes to train its students to prepare for careers in performance, production, education, and related fields. One of the highlights of the department is the annual dance production, this year's being Dance XVI. Dance majors and minors participate in the production.

The 1970 yearbook reported an increase in the number of business and economics majors and predicted growth to continue in the future. That prediction was an accurate one; at the present approximately one-third of Hope's students are business majors. Accounting has also been added as a major. The department seeks to prepare students with the professional skills and academic breadth necessary for leadership and service in the dynamic world of business administration, accounting, and economics. Students participate in internships with a variety of firms, produce market research, prepare econometric forecasts for local businesses and participate in many other activities. The outstanding nature of the department has produced graduates that have entered jobs in both the private and public sectors.

What Hope was like in 1977-78: (Among Mr. Gentenaar's first years at Hope): Saturday Night Fever was a hot movie to go see on the weekend. Negotiations in the Middle East were a big news story around the country. The Pull ended in a tie after it went for over three hours.

The goal of the education department is to prepare students to teach in elementary and secondary schools. The department is a member of both the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education and the Michigan Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, reflecting the standards and excellence of the program. Education students become increasingly more involved in field placements and teaching situations as they progress to upper level course work. They also participate in such programs as Higher Horizons, Upward Bound, tutoring, and student teaching in both local schools as well as abroad and other areas of the country. Majors are offered in both elementary and secondary teaching. Also, special education degrees are offered in two different majors, emotionally impaired and learning disabled.

The study of one's own language is critical in understanding other aspects of academia. Hope's English department strives to meet the needs of students who wish to pursue the study of the English language and literature as well as the art of writing and written communication. These skills are also very important to succeed in other subjects of study. The department tries to add to the students' learning experience by bringing authors, speakers, and poets to campus. Also, students can publish works of their own in various campus publications. Though all students are required to take the basic expository writing course (English 113), the department offers an extensive curriculum in many upper-level classes. The instructors in the English department represent many areas of expertise and interests, with many conducting their own research in various aspects of the subjects of interest.

Anne R. Larsen Hope College Class of 1970 French

The department of modern and classical languages seeks to lead students to a more complete understanding of the structure and role of language in society. It also seeks to create an open-minded tolerance of the culture of people who speak a language other than one's own, and also development of the ability to communicate in a language other than one's own. As international relations become crucial, these skills are in great demand. Students at Hope have many opportunities to study abroad to help perfect their language skills in a complimentary culture. Also, the department supplements learning on campus through language clubs, special language tables, and the opportunity for upper-level students to lead drill session for introductory classes. The department has recently expanded to include Japanese in the curriculum. Various other languages such as German, French, Spanish, and Dutch are represented, as well as the classical study of Greek and Latin.

What Hope was like in 1969-1970:(Anne Larsen's senior year) Hope still had a wrestling team. Freshmen still had to wear green beanies at the beginning of the year, a long-standing tradition. On October 15, the day of the Vietnam moratorium, the Pine Grove was turned into a "battlefield" and plotted with homemade cross "tombstones".

Hope's geology department provides an excellent education for such people. To accommodate different interests and goals, the department offers a bachelor of arts and a bachelor of science degree in geology, as well as composite majors combining geology with either physics or chemistry. Hope College is ideally situated for field studies of glacial geology, sedimentology, geomorphology, and limnology. To broaden experience and learning, the department offers opportunities to study in the Appalachians, the Gulf Coast, the Grand Canyon, the Virgin Islands and Colorado. Students are also able to work closely with faculty on research.

What Hope was like in 1966-67: (Cotter Tharin's first year at Hope) Women had to eat on campus, but this rule did not apply to men. Campus church was approved and held for the first time, with the help of many students. Tuition was $1,900 a year.

History is, by definition, the study of the past. However, this study leads to crucial insight and understanding into present circumstances and phenomenon. The Hope College history department offers a challenging program taught by professors who excel in many areas of different study. Many students will testify to the rigor of even the introductory courses. The department offers a number of internships in various fields. Several history majors have chosen to participate in the Washington Honors Semester. Graduates of Hope's history department have gone on to careers in government, law, journalism, and education. The history component of the core curriculum can be fulfilled through introductory courses. The department also offers concentrated upper level courses and opportunities for individual study. Neal.

riculum for the math department at Hope could be summarized by a quote from the 1900-01 yearbook: "The f r e s h m a n class takes up Plane and Spherical Trigonometry and Surveying Navigation and Astronomy; after which Analytical Geometry and Calculus conclude the course in pure mathematics." Contrary to the general impression that "mathematics never changes", the program has undergone significant changes since then. The current program begins with calculus. Advanced study in the junior and senior year includes courses in analysis, abstract algebra, and statistics. The mathematics department has been active, as always, on several fronts. For example, it sponsored the Lampen mathematics contest for high schools. There is no doubt that the math department provides an excellent and challenging program to Hope students.

What Hope was like in 1956-57: (J. Van Iwaarden's senior year) Hope accepted six students from Hungary, which had recently been taken under Communist control. A semester's tuition was $228, plus $190 for board and $125 for room.

The music department has always been an important part of Hope College's fine arts curriculum, as well as its history. At the present, Hope offers The Bachelor of Music in either Instrumental Music Education or Vocal Music Education, as well as the Bachelor of Music in Performance. The department has several components providing for students majoring in the field and also for the general students' interests and requirements. Several student ensembles are organized through the music department, as well as College Chorus and Chapel Choir. The Chapel Choir made a tour of the east coast during spring break under the supervision of Roger Rietberg. Individual lessons are available for a variety of instruments as well as voice. Recitals by both students and faculty are held throughout the year. Overall, there is much tradition within the department while allowing for advancement for the benefit of the students.

What Hope was like in 1946-47: (R. Rietberg's senior year) The campus lacked an effective heating system. Business law and finance courses were added to the curriculum, and were taught by local businessmen.

The nursing department of Hope and Calvin are combined to give the nursing students of both colleges a unique experience in their medical education. As a cooperative program, the department draws from the resources and serves the students of each college. Students enrolled in the nursing program take pre-nursing and college core curriculum requirements at their "home" campus. In their junior year, they enter the Hope-Calvin department of nursing and study professional nursing for two years. During this time, they receive clinical experience at Butterworth Hospital of Grand Rapids and also at Holland Hospital. The Hope-Calvin department of nursing is accredited by the National League for Nursing, and the fact that 96 % of Hope-Calvin graduates passed the Michigan licensing exam for registered nurses shows the success of the program and the excellent preparation its students have for the future.

Front Row: K Worbois, C. Simon, A. J e n t z . Back Row: A. Perovich, J. Allis.

Philosophy is a subject with a special relationship to its past: not only does a shared knowledge of the history of philosophy provide a common language by reference to which philosophers of all different persuasions can come to understand one another, but also the study of the history of philosophy is in a very real sense the study of philosophy itself. By rethinking the historical development of the subject, students come to understand the problems and issues that animate it and learn to appreciate the types of solutions that have already been advanced, approaches that may pave the way to future creative thought and new insights. The philosophy department is closely linked to the past of Hope College, as well as the present. Every student must take at least one course from the department to fulfill core. However, many concentrated and challenging courses are offered at an upper level for majors or those who are interested.

What Hope was like in 1955-56: The Pull lasted only 37 minutes, the freshmen being pulled into the river. The Hope basketball team won the upset of the year, beating Calvin 8973. The Fraternity bowling contest was a traditional social event.

purposes: to provide general physical education for all students, to offer a high quality academic experience for phys. ed. majors and minors, and to enhance opportunity for high level intercollegiate athletics. In the 1989-90 year the department proved to be successful in all of these areas and more. The program has recently been expanded to include opportunities for those students interested in industrial fitness and corporate wellness programs. In conclusion, athletic trainer Richard Ray had these encouraging words to add about the department, "Our department is making a transition from the days of Gordon Brewer and Russ DeVette, to people like Mark Northuis. Sue Wise and Dean Kreps. They are the youth element — very talented and devoted physical education leaders who bring with them encouraging possibilities for the future."

T h e excellent r e p u t a t i o n of Hope's physics department is widely known. The engineering physics program was reviewed by three outside engineers. Their conclusions were very favorable and they made only minimal suggestions for changes in the curriculum other than those already planned. This year, the NSF awarded a $32,000 grant to Jim VanPutten to buy computers for Process Control. These will be used in all areas of the engineering physics program to open new avenues for education and research. The Hope faculty held four NSF research grants in the last year. This exceeds the number held by the physics department of any other four year college. The areas of research are atomic (to Ned Rouze), heavy ion nuclear (Paul DeYoung and Peter Gonthier), and intermediate energy nuclear physics (Peter Jolivette). The department commented that the students have done an excellent job in their studies and wish the graduates the best for the future.

The 1972 Milestone listed the goals of the psychology department as follows; (1) to pilot psychology as a liberal arts subject, (2) to assist students preparing for jobs related to psychology, and (3) to prepare students for graduate school. This is in line with the goals of the department now. The department offers students opportunities to witness and experience psychological principles through laboratory experiments, student-faculty research and independent study projects. This challenging education experience has prepared numerous graduates for a variety of professions. The professors in the psychology department represent excellence in the field, with many publishing numerous articles. As David Myers remarked, "It was a good year. We found pleasure in seeing lives and minds mature, and thinking that, perhaps, we contributed a smidgen to that process."

What Hope was like in 1967-68 ( David Myers' first year at Hope) Chapel attendance was required two times a week. The Pass-Fail option was initiated. The Vietnam War made headlines in newspapers, including the Anchor.

Religion has always been an important aspect of the curriculum. The religion department at Hope aims for the student to understand the Christian faith and the role of religion in human culture. To achieve this goal, the department is divided into five areas of academic investigation: biblical studies, historical studies, theological studies, world religions, and religion in culture. The department also brought in an overseas professor to add a unique dimension to the program. The faculty strives to enhance the students' learning in many ways. The Danforth Lecture brings in important speakers on a variety of religious subjects. Students can participate in a number of internships in various local churches and youth groups. Internships are also available in Philadelphia and Washington D. C. The large number of past H. 0 . P. E. award recipients from the religion department reflects the excellence of the department.

Sociology is defined as the study of humans in society. Hope offers two majors for individuals interested in this area. The sociology major is designed for the students who wish to e n t e r g r a d u a t e or professional school. The focus of this major is on theoretical and methodological issues. The social work major prepares students who hope to enter careers such as counseling or other direct social work practices. The program focuses on broad based knowledge and direct experience. The department had a successful year. In September, professor James Piers and professor Deborah Sturtevant participated in an international conference. Also, Roger Nemeth was named Michigan's Outstanding Sociology Professor of the Year. These accomplishments reflect the excellence of the Sociology/Social Work staff. Many graduates from the department have entered successful careers as counselors, directors, professors, and lawyers.

What Hope was like in 1968-69: (J. Piers' senior year) Preparations for the building of DeWitt Cultural Center were underway.

The theatre department is actively involved in both the college community and the community at large. The department strives to provide its students with both knowledge and experience. Courses are offered for both the general student population and majors who are interested in a variety of areas of theatre. The students and professors are involved in numerous productions that are presented to the public.

THE HOPE AWARD The 1990 Recipient: James B. Allis


\ Professor James B. Allis has been presented the 26th annual Hope Outstanding Professor Educator (H. 0 . P. E.) award by the class of 1990. Dr. Allis, a professor of philosophy, was honored during the college'slHonors Convocation. The award, first given in 1965, is presented by the graduating class to the professor whom they feel epitomizes the best qualities of a Hope College educator. Allis has been a member of the Hope faculty since 1986. He is the third member of the philosophy department to receive the award. Before pursuing graduate studies — and a higher education career — in philosophy, Allis taught mathematics and science at a New Jersey junior high school for four years. He has noted that he always hoped to teach, and particularly enjoys interacting with students. Courses Allis teaches include "Modern Philosophy," "20th Century Political Philosophy," "God and Caesar," "Fundamentals of Philosophy," and "Philosophy of Law." He is president of the Hope College chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, and also serves as chairman of the college's Arts and Humanities Colloquium. He has initiated student research assistant programs and student internships for the philosophy department. He serves on the Board of Editorial Consultants for History of Philosophy Quarterly and wrote book re-

views for Christian Scholars Review and Ancient Philosophy. He is currently involved in writing a book, a bibliography in ancient philosophy, with Albert Bell Jr. Allis was recently elected to serve a two-year term as a representative to the Great Lakes Colleges Association (GLCA) Academic Council. He is a member of both the American Philosophical Association and the Michigan Academy. Allis earned his bachelor's degree in philosophy from Dartmouth College in 1975, and his doctorate in philosophy from the University of Pittsburgh in 1986. He holds three master's degrees — one in educational psychology from Jersey City State College, an Ed. M. from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and one in philosophy from the University of Pittsburgh. He and his wife Jeri live in Holland.

Co-presidents of Mortar Board Scott Trumble and Christine Modey present Dr. Allis the the HOPE award.

ope's first season of M.I.A.A. football began in 1927. The team consisted of 24 men who played six other colleges. Before, Hope played other schools they had intramural games. The team was divided by year of graduation and then the individual classes played each other. 1927 brought Hope its first chance to unify and compete against other schools. The 1927 season was full of zeal even though record was a disappointing 1-5. Hope's first experience at inter-collegiate competition was unfortunate due to the fact that many players could not attend practice because of classes and also the team had several players with injuries.

he Flying Dutch entered the season with a large number of returnees from last year's second place M.I.A.A. team, also adding one freshman to round out their 1989 squad. After a successful tournament at Calvin College early in the season, the team was geared to continue their winning ways with a couple of league victories and their fifth

consecutive G.L.C.A. championship. Headed by s i x t h - y e a r coach Donna Eaton, the team completed league play with a 9-3 record. The losses came at the hands of Calvin (2) and Alma (1), leaving Hope with a tie for second place in the M.I.A.A. The Flying Dutch completed their season with an impressive 26-5 overall record. Several Hope players

earned recognition by being placed on All-M.I.A.A. teams, These included senior co-captain Holly Vandenberg and sophomore Holly Brown on first team, senior co-captain Shelly Koster on second team. and senior Anna Marie Postmus with honorable mention,

eginning in 1973, the Hope College Flying Dutch added women's volleyball to their M.I.A.A. team roster. Although they entered the league lacking experience, the team, headed by coach Sandy Parker, was able to pull out a second place finish in the M.I.A.A. with an overall win-loss record of 9-5. The team, composed mostly of freshmen, was anticipating successful seasons to come. Team captains of the 1973 squad were Sue Haney and Judy Pillan.

s a first year varsity sport at Hope College, the women's soccer team surpassed all pre-season expectations. They finished a strong 3rd in the league with a 4-2-0 league record and a 8-6-1 overall record. The two league losses were to Kalamazoo in double overtime and to Calvin, a 1-0 loss. The team never lost a game all season by more than one goal and

played evenly with the best teams they faced. The team had several girls who won league awards. Midfielder and co-captain Lynn Schopp and goalie Kris Olenik w e r e h o n o r e d with a l l - l e a g u e awards. Midfielder and co-captain Sue Robbert and fullback Tammy Lind were named 2nd team all-league. Also forward Julie Akin and forward Kara Wolfe

were awarded honorable mention. Ten out of eleven starters will return for next year, and a few new players are expected to further help the team grow this coming year. Coach Stein Slette stated, "It is with much enthusiasm that we are looking forward to the next season."

he women's soccer team of Hope College just began making history, for this is the first year it has been an organized varsity sport. For the past five years women's soccer has been a club at Hope College. The team consisted of about 20 players and had a faculty member as an advisor. The players were required to fund the sport themselves by purchasing their own uniforms. Approximately 12-16 games were played per season against schools such as Michigan State University, Central Michigan University, and some of the M.I.A.A. schools. The team has tried to become a varsity sport for a few years, but in order to do that the athletic board of Hope College must agree to fund it. This year they agreed to do so and the entire team is grateful.

he 1989 men's soccer season had its ups and downs. After a strong beginning with two home victories against Grand Rapids Baptist and Trinity Christian College, 2-0 and 1-0 respectively, the Flying Dutchmen began to experience trouble scoring. This remained the barrier between Hope and an M.I.A.A. championship for the rest of the season.

KICK "This season was frustrating. Talent wise we were one of the best soccer teams in Hope College history. We just couldn't translate that talent into our record," said Hope head coach Todd Winkler. Despite improvement over last year with a 6-10-2 overall record, Hope still ended with a fifth place M.I.A.A. finish. Athletes who received second team M.I.A.A. honors

include junior midfielder Pat Dalton, junior tri-captain midfielder Grant Scott, and senior tri-captain defender Brent VanBlois. Sophomore goalie Aric Dershem, sophomore defender Darrel Folkert, and f r e s h m a n forward Darren Bennett all received honorable mention.

With quickness and skill, Scott Quoss maneuvers the ball.


en's soccer at Hope College has been played competitively for 26 years. When it first began in 1963, the team was coached by Phil Van Eyl. They weren't fully organized yet, as they didn't practice regularly or wear uniforms, and they only played one game. But the next year in 1964 the team took off to play eight games, ending the season with a 6-1-1 record. Hope played Calvin twice, beating them 5-0 each time. They also beat Goshen twice 6-5 and 8-2, and Oakland 5-1 and 7-2. They had a tie of 1-1 with Wheaton and lost their only game to Michigan State University, the score being 0-12. The soccer team first entered the M.I.A.A. in 1970. They tied for first place in the league.

individual standings with a 79.0 average. Lunblad also had the lowest course total in 1989, with a score of 68 at Duck Lake CC at Albion. Senior Dave Tull placed second in the final MIAA standings with a 79.4 average, right behind Lunblad. Scott Lone, a sophomore, finished sixth in the conference with an 81.1 average.

All three golfers were named to the all-MIAA conference team. There were seven tournaments for MIAA teams in 1989. Hope won four.

Junior Magnus Lunblad was named the 1989 league medalist, averaging 79.4 strokes per tournament round.

With the pressure of winning the all-sports trophy increasing upon them, the 1937 Hope College golf team practiced vigorously in an attempt to reach their goal. With four of the six team members veterans from the previous year's second place team, the team certainly had a powerful nucleus. Led by senior captain William Poppink, the Flying Dutchmen were able to clutch the championship against a strong Olivet team, making 1936-37 a banner year for Hope sports.

he feeling of the hockey coaches this year was one of "cautious optimism", knowing that the talent for a good team was there. A tough early season schedule including regional power Wittenberg and perennial league champion Calvin didn't favor the Dutch, but with renewed intensity and hard practice the team won ten of its next twelve games.

With great anticipation, Hope hosted the Midwest Regional T o u r n a m e n t . The Dutch lost several close encounters to highly regarded Ohio teams. But the team continued to work hard and it paid off in the MIK Tournament as the Dutch shut out Goshen, Indiana 1-0 and upset the number one tournament seed Bellarmine, Kentucky 2-1 before succumbing to DePauw 3-1 in

the championship game. They had a stunning seco n d p l a c e f i n i s h in t h e M.I.A.A. and an overall record of 12-8, Hope's best in hockey since 1982. The Dutch will return all team members except graduating standout center forward and co-captain, Heidi Carigon.

The Women's Athletic Association, which was in charge of all the women's sports, was responsible for starting the team. The hockey team was one of the first women's teams to actually play other colleges. The following season Hope played and beat Kalamazoo 3-2 and Calvin 90, but lost to Albion 2-5. Janet Owen was a star player for the team and won the Hazel Klyne Memorial Sportsmanship award in 1959. The new addition of a field hockey team provided inter-collegiate competition and an exciting new sport for women at Hope.

In their first two invitationals, the team ran hard and recorded close fourth place finishes in four team fields. The lone victory of the season came with a hard fought win over Aquinas College. Another bright spot in the season came when the team placed third at the Ferris Invitational, in which Hope narrowly edged rival Calvin College. Perhaps the finest outing of the season was a ninth place finish in Regionals.

Cross Country 227


lthough cross country is often a sport that highlights individual accomplishment, the 1989 Dutchmen took a team attitude with them into the season. This team attitude paid off throughout the year. Nowhere was this more evident than at the Tri-State Invit a t i o n a l . The hills on the course had caused the men problems in the past. But

through a smart coaching strategy by Coach Northuis, the men came out slowly to take full advantage of the team's strong kickers. This cohesive strategy helped the men run to a second place finish, placing six runners in the top thirty. The team finished second in the conference, losing only to an extremely talented Calvin College team. However,

Hope did place two runners on the All-MIAA team. Junior Bruce Fletter was named for the third straight year, and Senior Brain W h i t m o r e was named for the first time. Whitmore also finished third at Regional to qualify for Nationals for a second straight year. He finished 26th out of 184.

n 1947 the Hope men's cross country tradition began. Coach Jack Schouten's team started out with eight members, but before the season ended only five dedicated runners remained. In Hope's first dual meet, the Dutchmen lost to Albion 15-47. In their second meet, they were defeated by Kalamazoo 18-37. Despite the team's slow start, they finished the season on a positive note. In the final dual meet, the team brought home Hope's first cross country victory, edging Adrian 40-38. In the MIAA conference meet, Albion was an easy winner with 21 points, Kalamazoo took second with 65, and Adrian nosed out Hope 81-88 to capture t h i r d p l a c e .

Intercollegiate women's basketball began at Hope during the ^SO's, when the Dutch faced opponents such as Muskegon Community College, Eastern Michigan, and Central Michigan's second team. The team's first year in the MIAA was 1979, the same year they started play in the new Dow Center. The team, coached by Anne Irwin, finished with a 2-4 MIAA record, but an 11 -10 record overall. This was especially impressive considering the team started four freshmen and one sophomore most of the season. Junior Anne Mulder was selected the most-improved player and was chosen to captain the 1979-80 squad. Lora Hanson was the team's MVP. She led the MIAA in free-throw accuracy, was fifth in scoring (15 points per game) and eighth in field goal shooting.

A first-year coach is always in an uncomfortable position. Called upon to produce swift results and a successful season, the coach faces pressure to win. However, even the most exacting critic would not expect the first-year coach to lead the team to its first ever conference championship, first ever N C A A t o u r n a m e n t berth, and first ever NCAA national championship, all en route to being named the Division III national coach of the year. Unless, of course, the coach was Sue Wise. Wise accomplished all this while guiding the Flying Dutch to a 24-2 record, which was a school record for wins in a season. Down by twenty points with nine minutes to go in the game, Hope rallied around Wise's encouragement and leadership, beating topranked St. John Fisher College 65-63 after two Dina Disney free throws with one tick left on the clock.

The players were very sportsmanlike and gentlemanly, which reflected Nichols' coaching. The 1905 Milestone commented on the unity and harmony of the team, noting that the strong bond between members was the key to the team's success.

The Flying Dutch performed very well throughout the season. Coach John Patnott said he was very pleased with the swimmers, even in defeat: "They took it very gracefully," he said. J u n i o r Lori G a n o set three Hope records in 1989. In addition, she qualified for the Division III national cham-

pionships, along with Erica Hansen, Jilanne Bannink, Amy Bongers, Elizabeth Becker, Lynn Massey, and Kirsten Van Overen. The team holds much promise for next year; Patnott commented that "things look good for the future."

The Hope College women dove into the swimming scene in 1978. Coached by former California State coach John Patnott, the Flying Dutch earned themselves an impressive third place finish in the final M1AA standings with a 6-3 record. The following season, the women's swim team edged their way to first place, a position they have maintained every year. Fittingly, the entire 1979 squad was named MVP.

uided by coach John Patnott, the men's swimming team had a successful year. They ended the season with a conference dual meet record of 6-3 while taking second place to perennial power Kalamazoo. A school record of 1:26.16

was set by Phil Sotok, Matt Dahl, Kevin Burke, and Chris Von Ins in the 200m free relay. Jim Mitchell also broke two diving records en route to his competition in the Division III national championships, although he was hampered by injuries.

Patnott said that he was very pleased with the season. He credited team captains Mitchell, Dahl, and Mike Sullivan with building and unifying the team. "A coach can do a certain amount, but I can't be there all the time," he said.

The year 1978 marked the beginning of men's swimming at Hope College. Led by coach John Patnott, the team placed fifth out of six teams in the MIAA. Patnott, who had come to Hope after heading the California State team, coached the team to a third place finish the following year. The Flying Dutchmen were led in 1978 by freshmen Dave Moored, who was an all-MIAA performer. He set a Kalamazoo pool record in the 1000 yard freestyle, an MIAA record in the 500 yard freestyle with a time of 4:55.75, and was selected as Hope's most valuable swimmer.

he 1989 Flying Dutch tennis team went unb e a t e n in l e a g u e meets, won the conference tournament, and earned a trip to the NCAA Division III national playoffs. Needless to say, coach Kathy Van Tubbergen faced a difficult task. Yet with only three starters returning, the team finished at 11-9 and went 6-0 in MIAA compe-

tition. Although the loss of AllAmerican Colleen Sandro was difficult to overcome, senior captain Dani Zurchauer was up to the task. She broke Sandro's career singles record of 65, with 68 victories entering the MIAA tournament, and also had close to 60 wins in doubles play. The team had two close 5-

4 victories against Kalamazoo and Alma. The Flying Dutch traveled east to Virginia, Maryland, and North Carolina for their spring break trip, where they went 1-4.

The Flying Dutch always stretch themselves to the limit.

The Hope women's tennis team entered official league competition in 1965 after competing as a club team for several years. In their first season, two women went undefeated in doubles play. Although the team experienced a narrow loss to Kalamazoo in the championship match, three Hope players placed first, second, and third in championship singles play. The nine member team finished with a 7-1 record. The season reflected the increased popularity and caliber of play in women's tennis.

his year's Hope College men's tennis team finished with a 5-8 overall record and a 4-2 MI AA record. The team returned five of last year's top seven players, although there were only two seniors on this year's team. Although the team did not figure to challenge Kalamazoo, who finished third in Division III in 1989 and who were seeking their 52nd straight MIAA ti-

A tle, they were aiming for a second place finish. However, a 54 loss to Calvin gave the Flying Dutchmen a third place finish. T h e t e a m was led by senior Eric Stawski and senior captain Dirk Vande Poel and Kevin O'Keefe. This year the men made their annual pilgrimage south to play some spring break tennis. Traveling to North and South Carolina and Georgia,

the team played such powerhouses as Emory University and came home with an 0-4 record. However, they finished strongly with an impressive MIAA showing.

"Tennis is a sport that yields unlimited exercise and fun, Hope has courts of her own now, and they are in constant use from the break of day until the fall of eventide. This spring our varsity tennis players could not only practice in 'their own back yard,' but also could invite neighboring players over to indulge in a bit of interscholastic competition. The men on this year's team were largely new to tournament play, but after a bad start they became formidable racquet wielders, Kalamazoo College came here to apply a 5-2 defeat in the first appearance of the season. Van Leeuwen and Klaasen won their matches while Captain Arendshorst forced his opponent to the limit," -from the 1930 Milestone

he 1990 Hope Softball season can be summed up in two words: peaks and valleys. The Dutch won their first two games, lost their next eight, won the next two, lost the following ten, then won their last four for a regular season record of 8-18. The team contin-

ued their late-season success with a strong showing at the MIAA tournament held at Hope. The team was led by senior team captain Susie Renner, sophomore Johanna Pscodna and junior Eileen Malkewitz. Pscodna was named to the

Midwest region Division III t e a m , which consists of p l a y e r s f r o m schools in Michigan, Illinois, and Wisconsin.

Junior Eileen Malkewitz winds up to throw another strike.

As is the case with most of Hope's athletic teams, a victory over Calvin highlighted the season for the 1975 Hope softball team. Dressed in Hope softball t-shirts and sweatpants, the team showed much promise for the future with only two seniors on the team. They set a school record by scoring twenty-five runs in five innings.

t The 1990 Hope College baseball team experienced its impressive season as a direct result of the very high standards they set for themselves. Their records, statistics, and awards were a product of the time they were willing to commit, the sacrifices they were willing to make, and the desire of the players to fully reach their potential.

s The 1990 team was led by junior Vic Breithaupt, who was voted MVP of the team. and sophomore Brett Kempema, who was selected as most improved. The two were co-leaders in batting in MIAA play as both hit .500 against league opponents. Coach Ray Allen, in only his second season, had considerable success in 1990. Hope

went 11-1 in league play, with the only loss coming against Alma. The team ended the season with an 18-13 record, a big turnaround from the 10-21 record in 1989.

Freshman Karen Atkeson uses her entire body to heave the discus.

After losing two national qualifiers (Mary Busscher and Tauna Jecmen) to graduation, the Flying Dutch looked to freshmen for help in regaining the league championship. Talented newcomers Marcia Vandersall and Amy Lattinga performed strongly, but it was not enough to carry the Dutch, who were also hurt by the loss

of Abby VanDuyne, who spent the semester overseas. Head coach Donna Eaton remarked that although the Dutch had several good individual performances, "a few good athletes aren't enough. This season our team lacked the depth through the events to challenge for the league title." The Dutch finished with

a 2-2 record, with strong performances by Vandersall in the distances, Mary Beth Herin in the hurdles, and AnnaMarie Postmus in the javelin.

Good handoffs are crucial.

1976 was the first year that Hope College fielded a women's track team. The team was coached by Sandy Parker. Despite the fact that it was the team's first season, they placed second in the MIAA, posting a 3-1 record. The stellar inaugurating season was capped off by a second place team finish at the MIAA championship meet with Hope capturing five first place finishes. Coach Parker maintained an enthusiastic atmosphere, stating, "I enjoyed coaching the women tracksters, as they were motivated and worked hard." The Dutch were led by junior Mary Kolean.

and was never able to regain his top form. However, sophomore Matt Buys broke the school shotput and discus records, which were once held by his grandfather in the 1930's. He also qualified for the Division III national championships in the discus, as did junior Karl Koelling in the javelin and Mark Bonnell in the pole vault.

At the MIAA championship meet, the 400m relay team of Flowerday, Mark Travis, Phil Cratty, and Jeff Brown won the gold medal, with Travis and Cratty capturing the silver in the 100m and 400m, respectively, as dod freshman Mark Bonnell in pole vault.

254 Closing

This year's yearbook was indeed a d i f f e r e n t approach. Hope College is very rich in history, and I think that many students only see Hope as existing for only four years. So, I felt it was important that Hope students see and appreciate their school from a different perspective, even if it only means seeing the tennis court that once existed between Lubbers and Phelps. So, and I hope with great success, t h i s year's staff created a yearbook that is also part history book. Although it would be impossible to thank everyone who helped us this year, there are a few people who deserve special recognition. Anne Bakker-Gras,

our advisor, was more helpful than I can possibly explain. She helped us in almost every aspect of the book, from business dealings t o p i c t u r e t a k i n g . Dave Rieck, our publishing rep from Walsworth Publishing, probably put up with more t h a n a n y o n e should ever have to. Yet he always had a smile on his face and words of encouragement and support, and he gave us countless tips, a n d e n d l e s s advice a n d help on how to make our book a good one. And Larry Wagenaar and the rest of the Joint Archives of Holland staff can't be thanked enough. For months they spent a great deal of time with us, selecting and pulling pictures and allowing us to use their equipment

w h e n e v e r we a s k e d . Larry's limitless patience and invaluable assistance is deeply appreciated. All the old pictures in the book are from the Joint Archives of Holland; if we missed a few in the book or didn't print the full name of the Joint Archives of Holland, I offer my apologies. Finally, the public relations office was very helpful in supplying us with photos when we needed them. And I also want to thank our publisher, Walsworth Publishing. T h e r e are many other people who helped out in one way or another, and to them I also am indebted. — Ben Opipari, editor
