One-on-one conversation

We live in a very fast paced society. As we all are trying to keep up, we can forget the little things that we use to love. One thing I forgot that I love, is one-on-one conversations. Today, Carrie Alexander (an HC senior and one of my Phi Mu sisters) and I decided to grab…

Why I decided to rush

I’ll be honest: when I came to Hanover, rushing was probably the last thing on my mind. I had never considered joining a sorority, and unfortunately, I had really only been exposed to negative views on Greek life. That’s why I was surprised (pleasantly, of course) when I decided to visit some of the houses,…

Hanover Sweet Hanover

Having moved in three weeks early for preseason as an athletic trainer, I’ve been completely settled in and ready for the year for a while. As the campus came alive during the last couple weeks with all the new and returning students moving in, I was once again struck by how blessed we are to…

Spring Term philanthropy

Looking back over the last month, it’s easy to see a consistent theme, especially among the Greek houses on campus. The theme is, surprisingly, not partying or lounging after class, but rather giving back to the community. In Greek life, philanthropy is a major goal for most houses and having been Sigma Chi’s current philanthropy…

Behind closed doors at a fraternity

The movie, “Animal House” is a staple comic hit from 1978, and it might be one of my favorite comedies. I knew when I was a freshman that the stereotypical frat house depicted in the film wasn’t something that plagued Hanover’s campus, but the mystique of fraternity life has always been enough to get my…

Formal time!

Ah yes, formal. The coveted time of romance/awkwardness created after a short weekend away with your best friends and date. “What is formal?” you may ask? Well, formal is when fraternities spend a lovely weekend in a rather busy and frolicking city such as Indianapolis or Louisville. Every brother brings a date and as group,…

Hawaii Chi

It’s been super cold the past few weeks, and you can tell just by looking around at the different events on campus. When things get cold, people don’t want to leave their dorms and houses to walk across campus for events. What this leads to is a lack of attendance, so my fraternity brothers and…

The busiest week of 2014

Two weeks in, but I’m calling it now. I will not have a busier week in 2014 than the week I am currently being barraged by right now. It’s 12:30 a.m., and I have been up all night doing work — not procrastinating, surprisingly. The funny thing about the work I’ve been doing is that it hasn’t…

Greek Rush is here again!

For a small liberal arts college, Greek Life is a very prominent way of life at Hanover. With five fraternities and four sororities, Hanover may not have the largest Greek community but we definitely have a tight-knit one. Before the incoming first-years arrived, Hanover’s Greek community was just over 50 percent of students. That being…

Becoming president

Competitive debate was something I did well during high school, and I had a good shot at winning the state title my senior year, but a shot at a scholarship to the school of my dreams was more valuable to me. When I missed the state tournament to go interview for what could be a full…
