Finding My Home Away From Home

Before I even came to Hanover, I knew that I wanted to join a sorority. In high school, I had many friends, but not friends that I saw outside of school. I knew that I had always wanted a close knit group of friends, that I knew would love and support me, and be able…

Spring Term

Most colleges get out of school in the end of April, so when prospective students hear that Hanover doesn’t get out until May, it can be discouraging. However, we don’t get out until May because we have this glorious time called Spring Term or May Term. We have our normal first two semesters just like…

Greek Life

At the beginning a new semester, most students are trying to get a handle on their new professors, classes and in my case, keeping procrastination under control.

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,…

The Goodwill Gala

How is the word gala pronounced? Is it gay-la? Gal-uh? Gah-la? Here at Hanover, it doesn’t matter how you say it, everyone around you will know what you’re talking about. The Gala is a social event that the school hosts each year where students and professors alike will dress up and head out to the…
