Legacy Outreach Program

Who is considered a Legacy? 

Any Hanover College alumnus who is a parent, sibling or grandparent can add their legacy to our records.

Family connections have long been a part of the success of Hanover College and its students. We believe it’s important to the future of the College to have a significant number of legacy students in every class who can relate the stories and traditions of Hanover that have been handed down through the years. It’s great that many students discover HC for the first time each year, but it’s through our alumni families that the heritage of the College passes from generation to generation.

Approximately 10 percent of the students currently enrolled at Hanover have family members who have studied here.

Hanover’s Legacy Outreach Program was created to keep alumni and their younger family members connected to Hanover College.  As alumni, you know the value of your Hanover education. Our hope is that children and grandchildren of alumni will keep HC in mind as they begin to plan for their future education.

To celebrate this tradition, we would like to send every legacy a small gift at special age milestones in their lives - as a newborn, at age 5 and at age 16. 

Milestone legacy gifts are sent at the next milestone after registration.
