Spring Sports Report The season past in overview. For decades, Hope has provided students with the opportunity to dedicate spring break to helping others and growing in understanding through mission trips around the country as well as abroad, experiences that are technically termed “immersion trips” to reflect their holistic emphasis on engagement with the communities visited and how students can connect their faith and academic lessons to the world’s needs. More than 200 Hope students participated in such trips this year, including 13 immersion trips coordinated by the Campus Ministries Office as well as four others organized through other programs at the college and an area church.
