Hanover College is absolutely wonderful! The environment is academically rigorous and, due to the small class sizes, professors are always available to help you. It is definitely a challenge, however, and the cost of tuition is outrageous. Fortunately, there are a lot more scholarships and grants available to students here than there might be at state schools, due to there being more private donors backing the institution.

I love Hanover! For the size, it is incredibly diverse and welcoming. The academics are fantastic and competitive with big schools. However, there is a lot of work to be done in the administration in terms of dealing with Title IX situations.
Hanover College is a Hidden Gem, I went into the campus with no prior expectations and was pleasantly surprised by the small but charming campus. It is in the middle of the woods located by a small town off the Ohio River. The Air is very clean and there are many beautiful sights all over the campus looking out to the Ohio River. I would recommend for students who like a small campus with lots of hiking trails and freedom.
