Let’s Play Rugby

Last Sunday was our first men’s rugby match of the semester against DePauw University, and it had some good outcomes and some bad ones. On the bright side, our team absolutely dominated DePauw; we won the first game by nearly forty points, tied the second game (mostly because we gave them a few of our…

Hanover Ultimate 101

One thing a lot of potential Hanover students worry about is social life, and how many activities such a small school could possibly have. One major option is to go Greek, but you can’t do that until your second semester as a freshman. I’m sure by this point you’ve read something about going Greek (if…

Blessed to be at HC

In my previous post, I wrote about the things I am thankful for in my life — the big God I serve, my family, my friends, my health, the people who serve this country and much more. Not only am I thankful for these things that play a huge role in my life, but also I…

Football doesn’t exist in Europe; it’s so marginal that it’s almost invisible. Europeans watch soccer, and then they cheer for their national teams, becoming elated during the Olympics or the World Cups. In fact, during these sport events,…

I constantly see them. On The Quad, behind the Horner Center, taking up a large table in the Campus Center during dinner. The Ultimate Frisbee team has quite a presence here, and I believe it to be a good one. Those who are on the team seem to really get along well with and know…

March Madness!

As a college student it’s only fair to support other college and university’s athletics. What better way to do that then by creating a bracket for March Madness? Know even less than I do? Don’t feel bad, I had to study up before creating a bracket. I will warn you. This is the first bracket I have ever…

The End of the First Chapter

As we hit the end of my first year at Hanover, I’ve started to look back at my experiences that I have had so far. When I first came here I was so ready for college, so ready to be here, until I got here, when the nervousness settled in. My parents left soon after,…

Wiffle Ballin’

Spring Term is definitely in full swing on campus, literally. The swinging of bats, that is. With Spring Term comes Lambda Chi Alpha’s yearly wiffleball tournament to raise money for their philanthropy, Hungry Hearts Mission. Teams head over to Lambda on their respective game day to warm up and play on the field that is…

LaCrossing into the end of the term

At Hanover, I am involved in a mentoring program for seventh graders in the community. As the year winds down, we wanted to hold a larger than normal mentoring session full of fun activities. Last Wednesday, my fellow mentors and our mentees headed out — after the ten-minute thunderstorm from the underworld – to the…
