About this collection

The Nykerk Cup is a competition between freshman and sophomore women of Hope College in the areas of song, oration, and play/drama. Each class performs one song, one play, and one oration on Nykerk night. It was started in 1935 by Dr. John Nykerk, founder of the music department. Dr. Nykerk believed that women were not given an equal opportunity in competition as men and deserved their own competition to get new students involved, provide leadership opportunities for upper-class students, especially women, and showcase class talents in an even year - odd year tradition.
