Sorority Formal

In college, you don’t have typically have a homecoming dance or a prom. Here at Hanover, we do have a dance the night of the football homecoming, but I didn’t go since I hadn’t come prepared with a dress for the dance. I did, however, go to my sorority‘s formal and had one of the best…

Becoming An Alpha Delta Pi

The day that I’d been anticipating since joining my sorority here at Hanover was the day that I officially became a member and am now able to wear the badge that is our symbol. Leading up to “the big day,” my Big Diamond Sister as well as some other members of my sorority left me presents and…

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,…

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…

So close …

It’s almost move in day for the freshmen class. I am so excited to start this new chapter of my life. This week, however, has gone by so slow because I keep counting down the days until I move in. My roommate, Sydney, is already at Hanover because she runs cross country. I have talked…
