Campus Visit

Visiting campus will be one of the most important and informative steps in your college search. A typical visit includes a walking tour of campus and interview, but you can personalize your experience by meeting with a professor, observing a class or conversing with a coach. Hanover also offers informal group visits, overnight stays and other special events throughout the year.

  • Individual Visits

    Hanover's Office of Admission and Financial Aid is open Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. during the academic year and 7:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. during the summer (June - August). All visits include a walking tour of campus and a meeting with an admission counselor. You may request to visit a class, meet with a professor in your area of academic interest, meet with a coach or talk to someone in our financial aid office. To ensure that your visit meets all of your expectations, we ask that you schedule it at least one week ahead of time.

  • Overnight Visits

    An overnight visit is a great way to see both the academic and social sides of campus. Our student ambassadors host overnights Sunday - Thursday. Typical overnight visits start at 5:00 p.m. when you meet your host. You'll spend the night in the host's residence hall and attend classes the following morning. You can include a walking tour of campus and a meeting with an admission counselor either before or after the classes.

    We recommend that you plan your overnight visit approximately two weeks prior to your arrival. This allows us to match you with a host that has interests similar to yours. Overnight visits are intended for high school students in the second semester of their junior year or high school seniors.

  • School/Community Group Visits
