Why study at Hanover College

Hanover College gives students the best of all worlds. There are renowned professors at the top of their discipline, but classes small enough to get 1:1 interaction and mentoring from those professors.

We are located in a small midwestern area near one of Indiana's most historic small towns (Madison, IN), but less than an hour away from some of the largest and most touristic cities of the Midwest.

We have a one-of-a-kind naturally beautiful campus with over 600 acres of space, hiking trails, over 30 waterfalls, and endless hammocking spots. Hanover is also Indiana's first and oldest private, liberal arts, college. Hanover is also a global institution with about 18 different international partner universities and a variety of study abroad options to participate in during your 4 years here.
