“FOMO” (Fear of Missing Out)

This was my very last spring break as a college undergraduate. Many people go back to Gulf Shores or some other places with friends to party hardy, visit their family, and then there are those that simply don’t do anything and yet somehow still spend about the same amount of money. Well, I am that…

Facing your fears

As we get older and accustomed to the lives that we are living, we learn what we like to do and what we like to avoid. People our age can be adventurous but I also find that we likely to shy away from new things when we are thrown into new environments. For spring break,…

Shut up and JUMP

My first spring break as a college student. At first, I was unsure of my plans. My friends are scattered at different colleges, and we do not share the same spring break, so I thought I might have to spend it alone. Lucky for me, this was not the case. Some of my Hanover friends and…

Hard times at Hanover High

Hanover isn’t related to high school really. I just made that the title because it has a lot of H’s in it. What I really mean by the title is that it is a real struggle for Hanover students right now for two reasons: 1) It’s Dead Week 2) The weather is nice. It can’t…

Week One of Break

This year, I was an extremely lucky duck, as I had no finals during finals week. (Well, I did have some take-home finals.) I was allowed to leave campus a week earlier than most. I definitely took advantage of my two weeks of break, traveling and resting as much as possible. My first week of…

Unique Twist to a Standard Calendar Year

A small, unique, private school deserves a calendar that will play nicely into its trait of being unique. At Hanover we’ve got that covered! Instead of working in two semesters or even three we have a specialized system called four-four-one. This system allows for us to have our famous Spring Term which lasts only one…

Paper Palooza

It’s almost the end of Dead Week. Almost. It’s nowhere near the end of the semester. Okay, so in reality, it is almost the end of the semester. It will end in officially one week. What stands in my way? Two take-home finals, one oral final, and two large paper assignments. The take home exams…
