To HC, and BEYOND!

I’ve been wrapping up my senior year with the typical job search and graduate school applications. However, instead of flying blindly I decided to talk to Hanover’s Career Center and alumni from the grad school I want to attend who could give me the ins and outs. They really gave me a perspective on the many opportunities that grad school can…

Warm weather!

Well it has finally warmed up at Hanover and today was beautiful! Everyone loves spring here because of things like intramural sports, games on The Quad and the general splendor of life on a (basically) nature reserve.

IS and Comps

Every major has a different set of Comps, which is a series of tests, or an Independent Study (IS), which is a large research project. For political science majors, it’s a research project. It seems really scary when people tell you that you’ll have to do it one day but by the time you actually get to it, it’s…

Love these breaks!

One of the things that Hanover is awesome about is making sure we get the breaks we need. We get an entire week off halfway through the semester, which means we never have to focus on academics for more than about 6 weeks at a time.It’s like taking a complete mental breather after a long…

Almost every  one of my sisters received flowers from their boyfriends and even our house mother, Mom Sue, bought us all boxes of chocolate and red carnations. However, every year February 14th inevitably…

However, what I am most excited about is coming back to campus after the break. When I get back, my sisters and I will decorate our sorority house! We string lights all over the…

All grown up.

I attended an alumni panel discussion about community organizing and advocacy. It was sponsored by the Hanover College Career Center to give some insight about potential career paths after college, specifically in community activism. The two alumni present were anthropology and sociology majors and talked a lot about their decisions after Hanover. They both knew…

Rally to Restore Sanity/Fear

Well I dared to spend the weekend of Oct. 29 in Washington, D.C., for Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert’s rally. More than 200,000 people showed up for one epic comedy show. The Mall was jam packed with people all the way from the front of the Capitol Building (where the stage was) to way past…
