Where Are You Winter?

Indiana weather is in full swing here at Hanover and it’s easier than ever to see it. Generally in January, the first thing I do in the morning is look out the window to see how much snow there is but I’ve not had to do that since the beginning of the month and there was…

Snow days

It has been a crazy (but GREAT) couple of weeks here at Hanover College. I used to not like winter what with all of the cold weather and illnesses going around, but with snow days factored in, winter might just be my new favorite season. Our lovely snow days started during the last performance of…

Winter’s coming, brace yourselves!

For those who have read some of my previous posts you are well aware that I come from a tiny, cozy and warm country. Our annual mean temperature is 76°F. Lately, in Hanover, we have been experiencing cold, and by cold I mean freezing cold temperatures. Once again, I want to address all of you…

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…

Fall for Hanover

Just about a week ago, I was complaining to my friends about how it seems this fall is not as pretty as last year. I still remember my first fall here at Hanover College. All the colorful leaves just amazed me so much (Especially for someone who used to live in Texas where everything is gray).

Oh yeah, it’s winter

After a few weeks of the temperatures in the 50s (and I think it got up into the 60s a few days) it seemed like autumn was still upon the Hanover campus. Few were complaining, and it was nice not to have to wear a coat every day for a little bit. Of course, like…
