As someone who works full-time and has a family, Hope College has been a blessing for me. I am enrolled part-time and I am happy that the College offers in-class learning, not correspondence, so the time I spend learning is much more rewarding due to the social aspect which would not be possible if I had needed to obtain my diploma solely through other means. The times the classes are offered are flexible which help to accommodate work and family. And the small class sizes are beneficial to one-on-one help and more focused learning on the specific programs each student is in. The classes are fun and engaging and use different techniques to keep the students interested in what they are learning. The College has an obligatory practicum component for all programs so students can walk away with a diploma confident they have the tools they need to succeed in their field of choice. The diversity of courses offered help each student learn all aspects of owning and/or running their own business, not just specific material related to their field of choice, which I think is pretty unique and makes the programs offered that much more valuable to the students enrolled.
