About Hanover College Hanover is a liberal arts institution where brains and beauty truly intersect. The outdoorsy campus is nestled near the banks of the scenic Ohio River (see M: Madison). The College was founded in 1827 and is the oldest private college in Indiana. An easy drive from several metropolitan areas, Hanover is the perfect place to combine one of our core strengths (see B: Business Scholars Program, E: Education and H: HBSP) with any of our 32 majors or the one you design yourself! (see A: Academics).

No other campus has 650 acres of woodlands, waterfalls and streams practically next to your dorm. It’s one of the reasons Hanover has been named one of the nation’s most beautiful campuses over and over again (see P: Point). You can enjoy the natural beauty of campus by watching an early morning sunrise, hiking to a waterfall or relaxing in a hammock outside on a sunny day.

Simply put, the Business Scholars Program (BSP) combines any of Hanover’s majors with business. Want to major in art and learn how to manage a gallery or oversee environmental programs at a national park as a geology major? The BSP adds practical business fundamentals such as management, accounting, financial decisionmaking and business strategies to the knowledge you gain in your chosen discipline. You’re also guaranteed a paid, project-based summer internship tailored to your area of interest. Even more, you’ll also learn how to perfect your resume and present yourself in an interview through workshops and coaching by corporate-trained faculty. Maybe that’s why the BSP is Hanover’s largest academic program.

97% of BSP grads recommend this program to new students!

Once on campus, one of the first things you need to do is hike to Buddha’s Belly. You may get a little muddy on the way, but the view will be worth it! Buddha’s Belly is a waterfall deep in the woods that’s on top of a huge, round rock that is as round as the belly of the Great Buddha. On a warm day, you’re guaranteed to see it on someone’s Snapchat story.

Jim Hickerson, Director of Campus Safety

Campus Safety Picture this: You’re walking to your car for a quick run to Hinkle’s and your battery is dead. Don’t panic! Jim Hickerson has your back. It’s easy to feel safe on campus when Jim, a former Indiana State Police officer and commander for 32 years, is just a phone call away. Jim and his crew are there for real emergencies, or if you simply want someone to walk you home after a late night at the library.

Cadaver Lab If you’ve got a weak stomach, stop reading now. Let’s talk bodies. At Hanover, you don’t learn anatomy from a book and you don’t have to wait until you’re in grad school to get hands-on with a cadaver. We’re the only school in Indiana that offers undergraduate access to a cadaver. Grab some gloves and a scalpel, class starts in 10. (see H:HBSP)

College life begins in the dorms. We’ll help you find a roommate that’s compatible (i.e., don’t room with a gamer unless you are one!). From there, make your best memories. Choose from traditional, suite or theme housing. Whatever you choose, there’s always someone there to grab a bite, cram for a test or binge watch Game of Thrones.

Hanover produces well-rounded, socially-minded individuals who work well with others. It’s also the philosophy of our education department. You’ll be in classrooms, working with children of all ages, helping a child reach their full potential - all from day one.

There is life beyond the mini fridge! Hanover offers you four options for sustenance. Start your morning with a double expresso from the Coffee Shop. For a meal on the run, stop and grab a Papa John’s pizza or sandwich from the Underground. Head to the Campus Center for your choice of a traditional meal (there’s always extra chicken nuggets!), vegan dish or locally grown produce. Finally, after class, join your friends for karaoke or bingo in the Shoebox, our on-campus pub that serves amazing mozzarella sticks, onion rings and milkshakes.
