"The Urgency of Now;" Hope Professor Addresses Convocation


HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) - The newest Hope College students were challenged to lead “an examined life” on Sunday.

Dr. Patrice Rankine, dean for the Arts and Humanities and a professor of Classics at the Holland school, titled his remarks “The Urgency of Now,” drawing upon a 47-year-old speech by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for a “revolution of values” as he delivered the featured address during the Opening Convocation. About two thousand attended the ceremony at DeVos Fieldhouse, including a majority of the over 800 incoming freshmen who arrived on campus on Friday. It was the climax of the opening orientation weekend for those students, who will be joined by upperclassmen for the start of classes in Hope’s 153rd Academic year on Tuesday morning.
