5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There is so much to do on campus outside of class. It is such a beautiful campus and everyone is so friendly and open. Everyone is ready to help you and instead of waiting for days without replies on emails and such they answer the same day. The professors and staff are so helpful when choosing classes for your major and everything and they are always willing to help you in class, even if it's not in their own class they are willing to help you out.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Security drives by on campus about every 10 to 15 minutes to keep the campus safe. There is little that happens on campus that gets people in trouble or that puts someone in danger. The campus is safe overall and people are not afraid to talk about anything that happened on campus.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My professors have been willing to help me succeed in college. They are able to answer my questions and show me what I need to do to make the most of college. The courses are challenging but are not overbearing and the homework outside of class is not overwhelming. In all, the professors are great and the courses are interesting.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The college offers internship opportunities for everyone no matter the major they pursue. The career center is able to help with internships and with finding a job for those about to graduate. Most graduates walk out of college with more than a diploma in their hand and come back to tell their stories and also to help those who are in the same position they were in at the time.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is a major part of campus. Everyone believes that the students in Greek life help contribute to the community and to each other. Those in Greek life are asked to maintain a certain GPA and, therefore, become tutors to others in and outside of the Greek community. Greek students are housed according to their chapter in a big building with two students to a room for studying and bunk beds for them to sleep on.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: There are quite a few varsity athletic at the school and they are fun to attend. The students support the athletics. The school spirit is outstanding and the cheerleaders and dance team is always there to support the teams.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The college is absolutely beautiful no matter the season. The professors are willing to help and take pride in their subject. They connect the material with real world situations and help the students understand how it is applicable in their lives. I would definitely choose this school again because of the academics. The courses are challenging but interesting. The school also offers a variety of courses to choose from.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: It gave me leadership roles and challenges me.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I would like to know more about it.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The cost is worth the education you receive.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
