Indiana's First Private College

That's the beauty of Hanover

If you’re looking for ordinary, Hanover College is delighted to disappoint. Our students start companies, create social movements, and examine wildlife in the wild – and that’s just while they’re here. After they leave, they join a powerful alumni network of high achievers, with connections to jobs and educational opportunities in every field.

Help our students make Madison a great place to live! Wouldn't a zipline be a great asset to our community?
Catch the Hanover shuttle to Madison tonight from 5pm - 10:30pm and tomorrow from 1pm - 5:30pm! 🚍The shuttle stops at West Street, Little Golden Fox, Cragmont Street, Walmart, Taco Bell, Boneyard Grill, and the Movie Theater. The loop resets every hour and a half, so it is a great way to get to Downtown and/or Upper Madison.
