A Saturday afternoon at Hanover College

After taking a run on campus this past weekend in the 60-degree weather, I thought this would be an appropriate thing to share with my fellow and future Hanoverians. The people I saw and the activities going on were just a couple of examples of how friendly and how much fun you can have at…

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hey Hanover! As I sat watching Andrew Luck get sacked and fumble while reminiscing over what a great Thanksgiving break I had, I can only hope you all had similarly fulfilling breaks. I was lucky enough for mine to start last Monday, when I traveled with 19 of my best friends from Hanover to Indianapolis…

Big/Little night

Ladies and gentlemen, the time has arrived. It is Big/Little Night. Pledges who rush fraternities/sororities have a member in the fraternity/sorority who is a type of mentor/best friend to the pledge. It sounds corny on paper, but when you rush a Greek house, and don’t really know what to expect or when/if you are going…

Three tips to surviving Hanover weather

Running…love it, hate it, it’s for charity.

Running. It’s a love/hate thing for virtually every single human being on the face of the Earth. On the one hand, running is incredibly healthy with helping burn calories, keeping you active, and you feel so accomplished when you’re done. On the other hand, it sucks, it’s boring, you’re out of breath, you want water,…

Greek life isn’t necessarily what you think

Greek life isn’t for everyone. Some people want to be a part of a fraternity or sorority and others don’t. I assumed Greek life wasn’t for me and was completely against it my freshman year. I thought it meant associating yourself with only one group of friends, wild parties and being a tad bit stuck…

Up Til Dawn

Up Til Dawn is an organization on Hanover’s campus that brings awareness to childhood cancer and raises money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn. Last year, I was the public relations officer so I was in charge of advertising for events and also putting on small events for the organization. Unfortunately, we…
