Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

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.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

"How do you find the right college?" and "How do you make the most of the college experience?" are two different questions. Keep in mind that some colleges will be more to your liking than others. I would advise students and parents to look within a range that is reasonable in regards to finances, the student's tentative life direction, and the student's preferences. That is to say, do not attend a school you cannot afford, do not go to a school that does not offer your desired program, and do not go to a campus you know you'll hate. Otherwise, apply for as many scholarships as possible and take a chance with the best offer - read the fine print, but you can always transfer. When you feel okay about your decision, immerse yourself in the campus community. My best advice is: take interest! Join a club, ask a favorite professor out to lunch: these are ways to make friends, make your time at college more pleasant, and gain influence for later in life. College is but a few years of a person's life - make the most of your time and money, and spend it wisely!

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing: the relationships you can foster with your professors and fellow, like-minded students (whoever they are). You'll get what you give.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Our beautiful campus that overlooks the only spot that the Ohio River has three bends. It is also known to be a very well-educated liberal arts school.

Listen to their child because it is important for them to be in an atmosphere that they are willing to learn in. Otherwise you will just be wasting money.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure that the school you attend has a healthy social scene. For general happiness, this is more important than anything else. When you get to school, focus hard on your studies during the week to make time for socializing on the weekends. Don't ever turn down a chance to do something fun, new, or interesting.

What's unique about your campus?

Because it is so small, the students become a very close-knit community. This has its negatives as well, but the end result is a group of friends who truly care about one-another.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The actions of the administration reflect a complete lact of respect for the student body and an unwillingness to treat them like adults.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If you can find a school that feels like home, a school where you could happily live the rest of your life, count yourself lucky and do all you can to get in. Once you make it, be grateful to yourself and do all you can to stay in. Remember never to worry about impressing anyone or about what anybody expects of you. You know what matters to yourself. Surround yourself with friends who like you as you are, and treasure them. Take classes you care about, and never forget them. Feel comfortable inside your own life. Be joyful, and share that joy with everyone you meet. Like it or not, four years will pass quickly, and all you'll have left will be the lessons you've learned and the friends you've made. Despair not, for friends and lessons are life's sublime treasures. If you can build your life on pure and mindful happiness, college will help you find these keys to lasting joy.

Certainly the wonderful people, my friends, students and professors both. Studying at Hanover I feel welcome, like I'm home.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are generally white, middle class young people from the Midwest, who work hard academically but also enjoy their college experience.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

My advice would be to pick the college that is right for you at this exact time of your life. I wanted to attend a big, urban school far away from home. However, for various reasons, I ended up at a small, rural school a few hours from my parents. While it wasn't the choice I thought I would make, it turned out to be the right one for me at the stage I was in in my life when I left for college.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I had known Hanover's high academic standards coupled with its relatively small size and lack of visibility would prepare me well for the job market and other challanges but would make me a less-than-strong candidate for graduate school.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Imagine what you would absolutely love to do for the rest of your life; not necessarily what career you want to pursue, but rather the active state of your being. Based on this, I would find a school that is reputable in the general field of interest that you have chosen from the previous statement. There is always the chance that you can specialize after graduation, so undergraduate degrees have a lot of flexibility in terms of figuring out what you want out of life and generalizing your degree. For instance, I am a biology major here at Hanover College, yet my focus of study is in plant ecology. This does not limit me either, as I also get to explore the realms of philosophy, theology, anthropology, and geology as special interests outside of my major. The undergraduate degree is designed to educate you. Therefore, you should develop as a well rounded, well studied individual before you specialize in a field. That way you can bring a diversity of experience to the table when you do choose your path for a career or graduate study.

What's unique about your campus?

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.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Visit the college, dont let finances get in the way there are scholarships and grants out there if you look for them. and ofcourse go with both your gut instinct and the best fit.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Its the combination of the rural environment, or rather the fact its puling hairs fro people to not go home on weekends as well as a school board that do not share views with the president, porfessors or the students themselves.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who is not afriad to stand out, to speak out and to be involved in a community. by no means will you be "just" a number here, and that means that you will be continously challenged by your peers and faculty.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would say that visiting each school you are looking at for an equal amount of time will help you make the right decision for you or your child. Unfortunately, financial aid is an enormous part of the decision, and for me was the deciding factor. But although I was at first reluctant about the decision I had made to go to the college that offered me more money, I had to make the most out of it. That is exactly what every student needs to do; make the most out of your college experience because if you don't, there's no possible way you're going to have as much fun as is available to you on any college campus.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

How incredibly beautiful the campus is. You can go away into the woods if you want to study alone or even hang out with friends.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

College is an intense time of change and is a step into finding yourself in the real world. When looking at schools, look around not only at the academics, ask yourself, "can I see myself spending four years here with these people?" The friendships formed at university are as important as the degree. To have the support of a strong community of friends and professors is crucial to having a strong college experience. Once you have picked your university and have arrived, find a social group that will support you (and it is natural if this group evolves and changes during your college years.) In your classes, get to know your professors. They are there because they love teaching and love students. (If not, choose a different university!) Your education will be richer for it. And at the end of four years, you just might need a recommendation, it certainly helps to build those bridges sooner rather than later. Oh, and don't worry about GPA...too much. They are numbers. (Besides some professors start the alphabet with "B.") Remember, its about the knowledge and friendships gained, not numbers on a sheet of paper.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frusterating thing about Hanover College was the the lack of promises fulfilled by the administration and a general ignorance of what the students needed because their focus was more on alumni giving than on current students.
