Taking study breaks

Between classes, sports and work, sometimes you just have to take a break for yourself and relax. For my R & R (rest and relaxation) time, I normally watch Netflix on my laptop. It’s simple to pull up when I need a break from writing a paper or what not. It’s easy to access when…

A Saturday afternoon at Hanover College

After taking a run on campus this past weekend in the 60-degree weather, I thought this would be an appropriate thing to share with my fellow and future Hanoverians. The people I saw and the activities going on were just a couple of examples of how friendly and how much fun you can have at…

How to dress for these chilly Indiana days

As I bundle up, go outside, and face the torturous weather conditions in southern Indiana these days, I see my fellow Hanoverians not quite dressed appropriately. So, to my peers and future Hanover students who want to wear shorts when it’s less than 30 degrees outside, I think you’re crazy! I am wearing about three…
