Hanover College traditions

Well ,the campus has been hit — with snow that is. On my way home from the pageant Sunday, my boyfriend and I got to navigate through the winter weather. The crazy thing is that it isn’t even Thanksgiving yet, and we have snow! But the one advantage to the unseasonably cold weather is how…

Unexpected winter wonderland

Somehow it surprises me every year, but the cold this year seems to have just hit a lot quicker and a lot harder than it usually does. Just last week we had highs in the sixties. That is the perfect temperature for me and it could have stayed like that for … well … the…

Weather warning or winter wonderland?

All last week, the students and faculty of Hanover College have received email after email advising us to stay off the roads and stay safe. While that caused a little bit of worry, it also brought a lot of excitement. Our then somewhat-gray campus was about to turn a beautiful white as the snow began…

Production and strike in HC Theatre

Before Thanksgiving break, HC Theatre finished up their production of Oscar Wilde’s most famous work, “The Importance of Being Earnest.” With this production, I got an even better look at the backstage portion of theatre by working crew. While my schedule only permitted me to work on Tuesdays (and some odd days here and there),…

Now, jump back to last Winter Term when Hanover gave us another new tradition, Vegas Night. Held in the Campus Center…

Gala-vanting

As a senior, this is probably not something I should disclose but I feel that it’s a must – this year was my first time attending the Annual Fall Gala. I am not really sure why this is the case, I guess time flies by and if you get lucky you catch it just in…

Commence! Convocation!

Well, it’s official. I am back on campus, and this time, I’m at the top. That’s right, I am officially a senior. This didn’t fully register with me until Thursday’s Fall Convocation. Even though before this event I met with my classmates in the basement of the Faculty Office Building to pick up and try…

“Let’s Play Ball”

Lambda’s philanthropy event every year is wiffleball! This is an on going event throughout spring term!! And it is so much fun! Not only all of that, it’s a Hanover College Tradition! So pretty much wiffleball is like baseball but with a plastic ball and plastic bats. The Lambdas are umpires and students come together…

Thankful for HC

Well, if I couldn’t tell already, I definitely am able to realize that I am in the real world as my friends at Hanover are able to enjoy a few days off from school for Thanksgiving break, while I am in Philadelphia, Pa., working at my internship. Even though I am spending this Thanksgiving holiday…
