Getting Involved

Hanover College is reliant on the talents, resources, and knowledge of its parents. Ways you can volunteer include:

Be Engaged

Attend Hanover events in your area and on campus as often as you can.  Hanover has a lot going on throughout the year on campus, from theater productions to a host of athletic events.

Stay Current

Develop Careers

Parents provide valuable resources for Hanover students who are interested in experiencing the work world in their desired career field.  Hanover prides itself on the network of alumni, parents and friends who are critical in helping our students find employment and internships.  For more information regarding help in this area, please contact David Harden at or 812-866-7127.

Show your Pride!

Show Hanover spirit everywhere you go by wearing Hanover College gear such as hats and shirts.  Decorate your work and home environments with campus wooden replicas and HC throws (available through the Parents Association) if you live in the State of Indiana, by purchasing a Hanover College License Plate through the Bureau of Motor Vehicles ( . If you are not in Indiana, you can display a Hanover College license plate holder available for sale in the Hanover College Bookstore.

Be Loyal

As a parent you can make a statement about loyalty just as a large percentage of our alumni do each year by giving to the Hanover Fund.  Giving demonstrates confidence in Hanover, no matter what size the gift.  Hanover is deeply grateful for this extra investment and the level of commitment that it demonstrates.  Thank you for participating in this long-standing tradition.

Support the Parents' Endowment Fund

This endowment, established by the Parents' Association, supports Hanover sophomores, juniors or seniors who are looking for funds to help finance a spring-term project or activity that goes 'above and beyond' the scope of any normal coursework. Students have the opportunity to submit a proposal to apply for funding provided through the Parents' Association Spring Term Experience Endowment. You can support this worthwhile program by purchasing Hanover College Cat's Meow replicas (wooden replicas of campus buildings and landmarks) and HC throws.
