"When I attended Hope there were four guys who were my best friends. I was in a band with them called Sky Park. We cut a couple records on Word's label. Those guys are probably always going to be my best friends with the exception of my wife. I had a really positive experience at Hope. I loved the professors. They were top-notch teachers and I learned a lot from them."

"The professors at Hope really help you prepare for your career. The business program is strong and classes are small so there is lots of individual attention."
