I came to Hanover as a second choice school and it was one of the best decisions that I have ever made. The campus is almost as beautiful as the people who inhabit it. I made friends with my entire hall on the first day and easily made friends it the days that followed. The RAs are amazing and really love what they do. The professors are top notch and want to help shape a better future through their students. The study abroad program is fantastic and really helps to put our education into a global context. Hanover may not be perfect but it is home and I could not hope for a better place to study.
Hanover has the potential to be a great small community college, but to due the location and the lack of diversity that is claimed to have, it is ailing in providing the best college experience possible. The campus in itself is invigorating, we have waterfalls and hiking paths. We are the ones that can see three bends in Ohio River just standing on the point of our campus. Off-campus there are not many opportunities to go explore the city like you would at other campuses. The city outside of Hanover, is very small and I am surprised that we have a Walmart. Outside of hiking trips and grocery shopping there is not much else to do. As a student, I appreciate the Liberal Arts Education that we are receiving because it expands my knowledge about the world I live in. Hanover also gives its student the opportunity to have a voice through senate and allows students to develop their own organizations on campus. If it was not for the free range of being able to develop our own organizations I strongly believe that we would not be able to function as a community. I wish we would appeal to the the minorities on campus instead of just labeling the school diverse. Yes, we have people representing various walks of life, religion, race, gender, and sexual orientation, but we do not support the minorities as we should.
Hanover, or Hanny as we like to call it, is our home away from home. We have opportunities by the hundred in student organizations and in the classroom. One thing I don't think is advertised as much as it should be is the fact that Hanny is excellent for preparing students for graduate school. Each student has to do a senior research project for graduation. No student leaves Hanny without knowing how to conduct research. All of my friends in graduate school are thankful because their classmates have not been as lucky to have such opportunities. Most even say that graduate school is easy because of the skills they learned at beautiful Hanny.
Hanover has a great environment where professors, faculty, staff, and students all interact together as a tight community. The view on campus is unbeatable and there are tons of hiking trails located right on campus.

Over this past summer I worked at a camp for children with behavioral problems. During the training process, one of the key concepts that was conveyed to us was, "These are not bad kids, they are kids with bad behaviors." One of the major problems I've had in college is letting grudges end relationships. Going into college I would suggest thinking about everyone as a good person, and forgiving those mistakes made along the way. In other words, "These are not bad friends, they've just made some mistakes."
There are a lot of cookie cutter students with some originals that make it worthwile.
Location and the teachers are the absolute best attributes characterizing Hanover. We have some of the best recreational wilderness (which also translates into great research opportunities) and the teachers are phenomenal in terms of helping, teaching, and getting a clear sense of where each student needs to head for graduation.
Worst is such a strong word. I can't really think of anything that truly dislike here. Maybe a small issue, but nothing to complain about. Maybe the lack of true diversity here. I'm black so there's not a lot of black people. Maybe around 40-45 at the very most. That's 45 out of 2000 by the way, so very small diversity rate.
Someone that is more interested in the college lifestyle and experience than the academics.
Hmm...well, I usually brag about the size of my school, the quality of education, and the beauty of the campus! Because Hanover is so small, the campus community is very close-knit and genuine. At Hanover, everyone has a name. Class sizes are small, which allows professors to get to know their students. As a result, academics are top-notch. Finally, the location of Hanover is so...refreshing. Rather than crowded in a polluted city, Hanover sits high above the gorgeous Ohio River. Many of my friends who attend large universities miss out on these experiences that Hanover offers.
There is so much work outside of class and sometimes it is hard to juggle with all of my activites. It's like the professors think their class is the only class we have.
Hanover is known for its size, strong emphasis on liberal arts, closeness as a tight-knit community, beautiful campus, school spirit, and a fun and wonderful college experience.
I wish I would have known that the majority of students who attend Hanover come from the surrounding tristate area, and therefore, will travel home on the weekends, leaving campus a little quiet; as a student, you have to be creative and resourceful with friends in order to think of things to do.
Hanover College is a backwoods, rough-edged, jewel in the rough that would become better with more diverse, academically-inclined students; more reasonable expectations across the board; and with more visionary, tested leadership.
