Beat Hope Challenge
The Calvin/Hope rivalry will again feature the popular satellite game on February 11, 2012, which showcases the men's varsity game. For "The Game," Calvin and Hope fans gather at a designated viewing location and enthusiastically cheer on their team. Take the whole family to a site near you! If your area doesn't have a site, consider hosting.
Calvin fans can now defeat Hope fans by participating in the new Beat Hope Challenge, a joint alumni giving initiative sponsored by the two schools. All annual fund gifts received before February 29, 2012 will be counted. Thank you!
