A Letter Goodbye

Dear Philadelphia, As our time together is about to end, I want you to know that I will miss you deeply. Over the past three months you have provided me with adventure, opportunities and new experiences. I cannot even begin to express my appreciation and gratitude that I have as I have fallen in love with you….

Make Today Count

So much to do and so little time to do it in — is a constant struggle that every student at Hanover faces at one time or another. Now that Dead Week is in full swing on campus, and finals are just around the corner, I am sure that the majority of the students are…

Thankful for HC

Well, if I couldn’t tell already, I definitely am able to realize that I am in the real world as my friends at Hanover are able to enjoy a few days off from school for Thanksgiving break, while I am in Philadelphia, Pa., working at my internship. Even though I am spending this Thanksgiving holiday…

New York, New York!

Saturday was yet another day full of adventures out on the East Coast. This time, I left Philadelphia for the day and headed to New York City. It started bright and early at 5:30a.m., in order to catch the MegaBus from Philadelphia to NYC, and I then crammed as much into my day as possible….

Conquering D.C.

Beyond being able to experience Philadelphia, Pa., because of the great transportation system that they have, I am also able to visit other cities as well. The city’s MegaBus offers several trips to different cities on a regular basis, costing anywhere from $1 to $15. Either way, what a great deal! Over the next six…

Introducing Friends to the City

For the past three days, my roommates and I have been lucky enough to have visitors come to see us all the way from Indiana. Since Hanover students are enjoying Fall Break right now, we had several friends from Hanover (and other schools, too) come out to Philadelphia to enjoy their time off from school with us. Somehow…

Learning about the Learning Plan

There are some professors at Hanover who will give you a syllabus at the beginning of the semester and tell you exactly what you will learn. There are other professors who give you a syllabus they say is flexible and will be more than happy to incorporate whatever the class would like to learn into…
