College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Do not live off campus, so I do not know.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Just be sure to clean up after yourself and not just rely on the cleaning people to do it for you then you'll be fine.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: Sometimes they suck, sometimes they're alright, and sometimes they're pretty awesome.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: After a while you get tired of the food cause they all seem the same. The cookers try and create new things, but it barely works.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: No car? Oh well. Friends who have cars? Great! Neither you or them have one? Too bad.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I haven't done an internship yet, but I heard they were great and really helpful to those who did them. I would like to have an internship before I graduate.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports are great here. Well, as great as any Division 3 teams can be.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: It's alright. Not too overbearing as long as you do what is necessary of you.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It's alright. The campus is small, but comfortable. If you want to have fun then you have create your own fun if there is nothing going on. Or you could drive to another town that's more lively and do something there. Can't really do much if you don't have a car.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: There are a lot of multicultural organizations/programs and events that goes on on campus. The school likes to promote diversity a lot, so it's good.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel relatively safe on campus. There's not really much to do. Sure there is some drinking, but not enough to cause problems.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Marijuana: seen as okay as smoking cigarettes by the students, sometimes smoking pot sedates a person enough to work better in school work; by the staff, it's not mentioned.

Alcohol: The school has a safety program that's really helpful to the students who do not know how to handle their alcohol.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It depends on whether your friends would be willing to live with you or not. And it's hard to get food because most of your time is spent studying at school and their food prices are expensive.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: We are a small school in the middle of Indiana, you can't expect too much if you are coming from a city like I did. However, for a small school in the middle of Indiana, we really do have a lot of diversity.

3 College Freshman

Computers: Expect a lot of slow wireless here, but sometimes it works wonderfully. You just never know.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Almost everyone gets involved with the sports here on campus.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Almost everyone here is in sports, so most people are very athletic. Since it is a small campus you see most people every day, so it makes meeting and keeping up a connection pretty easy, but if you have an awkward experience you will have to relive it almost everyday.

4 College Freshman

Majors: You can almost always talk directly with the head of whatever major you wish to go into. They are very helpful, and often will seek you out, even if you do not seek them out. It is important to be very academically focused, and to be willing to work hard.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The teachers are great, and with the liberal arts curriculum you really get a taste of everything.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: The buildings can be somewhat rundown, but the newer ones are very nice. Many professors live right here on campus, which can be a lot of fun, and we have a surprisingly large number of international students and professors, considering what a small school we are.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I'm an international studies major, with a minor in business and Spanish, they have a lot of opportunities for internships and study abroad sessions.

4 College Freshman

Academics: You are expected to work quite hard and to do all of the homework, and since it is such a close campus the teachers will notice if you don't, but you get a great education. It can be a little hard to register, and its very possible you wont get the classes that you first wanted, but over all, most of the courses are enjoyable anyways.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: For those who want to join, they have a lot of nice things that they do and are very involved on campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The campus really doesn't seem overly strict at all.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: the housing is pretty nice overall, if somewhat run down and understaffed. It seems over priced for what we get in return.

Hanover is not the right fit for everyone—that's for sure—but for students who want an academically rigorous program, close relationships, and a welcoming campus community, Hanover is perfect. Hanover consistently rates highly in nationwide college reviews and is well respected in both the region and the country. Hanover students value hard work in- and outside of class and make it a point to get involved in campus activities. Students typically make close relationships with professors and faculty members and keep these friendships going even after graduation. Professors make a point to get to know their students on a personal level and become mentors. Everyone at Hanover works together to make it the best college experience possible. Hanover alumni remain connected to the College, and when speaking to them, you get a sense that the College changed and shaped them into better people during their time there.

Hanover is only for you if you can embrace its isolated, rural location and can be open to making your own fun and working hard. Hanover students cannot party every night and still succeed academically, but they can still have a lot of fun. Grades can become an issue for students because the professors are usually very harsh graders, even if the knowledge gained is worth the cost. Since Hanover has a large Greek population, students should also think about whether they want to be a part of Greek life. It takes a lot of time, effort, service, and money to be in a fraternity or sorority.  Overall, Hanover is an engaging school that is ready to welcome students who want to learn and make close relationships with other Hanoverians.
