From Hanover College

As Indiana’s oldest private institution, established in 1827, Hanover College has higher education down to a (liberal arts and) science.

For nearly 200 years on this 650-acre campus, our graduates have discovered their passions through our wide variety of opportunities, from academics to athletics and social life to study abroad. That’s one of the best things about the liberal arts – you’ll choose from our 34 majors – but you’ll never be limited to just one thing!

Did you know that Hanover was a residential campus? That means nearly all of our students live on campus all four years of their undergraduate experience. Our students have the opportunity to live in classic residence halls, Greek homes, apartments, newly-constructed townhomes and more.
