5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: At first I was committed to IUPUI, but after going to an event with a buddy (who no longer attends Hanover), I discovered that I felt at home at Hanover. Upon arriving on campus, I knew this was the place i wanted to be for my collegiate career. The school is small enough that professors take interest in your activities and truly care about your success, but large enough to blend into the school if that is what you want. There are always events going on that are generally open to the students and the food at the Shoebox and Underground is simply fantastic. While it does cost a pretty penny, I believe the experiences I've had at Hanover and the connections I've made have really paid off, and that is only in my first year!

Overall Experience: Hanover College is a well-known college nation wide. We have students that have graduated and became Actuaries (a hard field to get into), students that have moved on to grad school at various campuses, and we even have a Business Scholars Program that allows students to interact directly with businesses by solving business-related issues. In fact, as part of BSP a student is required to have a summer project-based internship (some have been with Eli Lilty, Lays, and many many more). This school, despite its small size, has very large connections through alumni, businesses, and other programs nation wide.

Health & Safety: Campus security is always patrolling and watching out for students. This year, they have installed several new emergency beacons around campus to improve the access to campus safety. There have been times that I have walked alone at 3 in the morning for about 20 minutes and I felt completely safe because of the environment Hanover College has. In terms of issues on campus, there havent been too many negative cases (when there is, the administration is sure to alert all students as necessary). Most of the time, campus safety is just called when someone drinks too much on the weekend.

Campus Housing: My floor in particular formed a sort of brotherhood and we'd always involve each other in various activities, and be sure we're okay when party nights happened and we'd return for Taco Bell (there was always a DD on the floor). As far as I could tell, the other floors were relatively the same where everyone knew everyone and there was always something fun to do. Yet, at the same time you could trust people to not steal from you when you door was unlocked and could get some peace and quiet when in your room. The other buildings were essentially the same (various layouts however). THe layouts were very effective and the school made sure to keep the lobbies up to date to allow for more comfort. Worst thing is that we were constantly being threatened with fines for literal normal wear and tear.

Greek Life: Despite having some questionable occurrences, like literally every campus to ever have greek life has had, the greek houses are very strict on enforcing their rules and protecting people who enter their house. When parties do occur, that house's security roams and verifies that people are who they say they are and to be sure the people in-house are safe.When parties aren't going on, the brothers in houses are the nicest people you'll meet and they're always welcoming to "outsiders" even if they're from different houses.

Athletics: Our school is quite small, but dedicated to students and athletes. We have a facility known as "Horner" where students and athlets alike are more than welcome to use (from the gymnasium to the indoor track & weightroom to the "yoga" room). There is plenty of space to run (the streets are very safe to run on) and, being basically on the Ohio River, we have access to beautiful hiking trails and the gorgeous city of Madison!

Overall Experience: The teachers were all pretty easy to talk to with such a small school (~1100 students grades 9-12), plus they didnt want you to just pass the tests, they wanted you to learn the material, most of the time. Something I truly enjoyed about our school is that we "buy" parking spots from the National Honor Society chapter and we are allowed to paint them however we want (so long as it is appropriate) and it stays on there all year. We also just got an updated school and each student rents a macbook from the school (fairly expensive to be honest) to complete their homework and the like.

Overall Experience: I love the small class size at Hanover. Our classes are based on discussion rather than lecture which makes learning a lot more fun and interesting. The professors are enthusiastic about what they are teaching and really care about the success of the students.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Students who graduate from Hanover tend to be extremely successful in their careers. Hanover keeps connections and networks with the alumni to help current students find jobs and internships. The connections it makes is one of the many great qualities that Hanover possesses.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus and I am not afraid to walk alone at night. Hanover College does not have a sexual assault problem but encourages women to talk about it and not be afraid to get help if sexual assault does happen. Campus security does a lot to help make students feel safe, including giving them a ride to destinations on campus if a person does not feel safe walking.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is a lot of fun, but it really depends on what dorm you live in to what kind of experience you will have. Most of the dorms are small traditional dorms. The worst dorms are those for the freshman because they don't have air conditioning. However, the upperclassmen housing is great with suites, bigger rooms, and air conditioning.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: As far as Greek housing goes, that is fine because every fraternity and sorority has their own house and that is more than some colleges have. Greek life does improve the community because they complete a lot of service projects and plan activities for the whole student body.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics at Hanover College are supported by the students and faculty; however, fan support outside of the college isn't that great. Games are still fun to attend though and school spirit does not lack.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall experience has been very good. I have made a lot of friends, and the amount of groups we have on campus make it easy to meet new people. The campus itself is beautiful with many trails to hike and places to explore. If I could do it all over, I would choose Hanover College every time.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Hanover College has the best team of professors in the state of Indiana. The absolutly love what they do. They give 110% with lecture, every assignment, and every time they have office hours. I have not only gained amazing advice from them but they have become apart of my very own family. A student could not ask for a better grop of professionals as educators.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The value of a degree form Hanover College is more that one would think. Liberal arts means that first and formost we will be getting a well rounded education that will enable us to mold into any professonal carreer we choose. As students, we come into Hanover thinking that we weill just learn all of the things we think we want to know for are job after College, but it gives us that and more. I can bank that when I leave College I will be ready for any goal or post college education.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Hanoverr College does it's best to insurethat all of it's students are protected and that our needs are met. I have seen very positive measures being taken to provide appropriate care for those who may have situations or concerns regarding safety, sexual misconduct, and overall well being.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The buildings are a little old which makes it difficult to keep updated and fresh. I will say though that the recent renovations to the college have bein great. There has been a total renovation of the commons, fresh pain, and new floors. It is slowly coming along.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: I myself am not in Greek life, but Hanover's Greek life is a very important part of our community and campus climate.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Hanover College prids itself in being known as a steeller accademic schooll. What most people don't know is that is is also an up and coming athetic school as well. Hanover has made more of an effort to attract athletic students as well as those who are looking for an accademic challenge.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Hanover College is a well rouded university that takes into consideration the background of each student which enables them to find their passion. As a student I feel that my professors give just as much as I do when it come to learning and obtaining the best understanding possible. I feel that Hanover College is an accademicly challenging school, yet an outstanding networking school as well. My experience thus far has been challenging and equally rewarding. I am proud to call myself a Hanoverairan.

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.
